Those looking for scenic living while keeping city life close-by will be delighted with the Cildes Croft development in Kilsby.
The village, nestled in the Northamptonshire countryside near Rugby and Daventry, offers fantastic transport links to the nearby cities of Northampton and Coventry, and an easy commute to London.
Historic Kilsby gives its name to the Kilsby Tunnel on the West Coast Main Line, which was designed by Robert Stephenson, the son of steam engine pioneer George Stephenson, who was responsible for inventing ‘The Rocket’.
Kilsby is also thought to be the location for the first skirmishes of the English Civil War in 1642. Later, the village, as many others in the area, became known for the manufacturing of high-quality footwear.
Now the village has become something of a commuter hotspot and boasts a range of amenities nearby. The Heart of the Shires Shopping Centre on the outskirts of Daventry, complete with its artisanal shops and high-end boutiques, is on the doorstep.
Avant Homes’ Kilsby housing development is perfect for those looking for a quaint village lifestyle, but with the benefit of top transport links to local towns and cities.
