    About this property

    • THE PROPERTY
      Cromwell House is a beautiful stone property occupying a discreet position on the edge of West Deeping within mature landscaped gardens.

      Grade II listed, the 17th century house had early 19th century extensions, and more recently, since 2008 has been extensively renovated, including the re-plumbing and electrical rewiring of the house.

      The house has a pleasing flow to its accommodation for modern family living, whilst also retaining the desired period features along with the era's graceful proportions, and its principal rooms connect well with the gardens. The separate annex, which has been used as an office suite in recent years, requires little alteration for use as an ancillary cottage for guests or relatives, with the use of the secondary drive entrance. The gardens are a delight, partially walled with formal lawns, box hedging and fruit trees, along with a stream; the gardens extend to about 0.96 acres

      ACCOMMODATION
      The attractive front door beneath a fanlight opens within the south facing house's wisteria clad frontage into a large, stone flagged entrance dining hallway, with a stone fireplace and shuttered sash window, which sets the tone for the property's fabulous proportions and feel.

      The dining hallway is flanked by a triple aspect drawing room, with light oak parquet flooring, French doors to the garden and stone fireplace, and a 16' symmetrical sitting room which adjoins the kitchen, with a large inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove.

      The spacious kitchen/breakfast room has French doors to the kitchen courtyard garden and is ideal for informal entertaining with room for a large table. The room is fitted with an extensive suite with large drawers and cupboards, integrated appliances and floor units and island, with inset sinks, under granite worktops.

      The ground floor is completed with a utility room, a dual-aspect office (or play room) with fitted bookshelves, two cloakrooms and access to the triple garage.

      At first floor, the principal bedroom is fabulously proportioned with large built-in wardrobes and fine views over the garden, with a luxurious full suite en suite, with a free standing roll top bath, double sinks and a separate shower. The guest bedroom has an en suite shower room, whilst the three further bedrooms are served by a well-appointed family bathroom. The staircase rises to a vast attic offering excellent storage.

      OUTSIDE
      The separate annex, which has been used as an office suite in recent years, requires little alteration for use as an ancillary cottage for guests or relatives, with the use of the secondary drive entrance. The gardens are a delight, partially walled with formal lawns, box hedging and fruit trees, along with a stream; the gardens extend to about 0.96 acres.

    • West Deeping lies between the Georgian market towns of Market Deeping and Stamford, north of the Cathedral City of Peterborough, and is largely made up of stone period houses served by a public house and parish church.

The A16 at Market Deeping offers excellent access to Peterborough and its commuter rail links to London and to Cambridge, whilst several of the area's renowned schools, including Copthill, Stamford, Kirkston House, Bourne Grammar and The Peterborough School, among others, are all within an 11 mile radius.
