A spacious & charming detached property in a secluded setting, within mature gardens of over half an acre, in the historic village of Thorney, nine miles east of the city of Peterborough.
This very handsome and substantial detached family home was built in 1935 and enjoys a favourable setting in the heart of this sought-after village. The property has lovely views over its own well-established gardens and the village's historic conservation properties, with a wonderfully leafy feel in the surrounding area. Internally the house is traditionally appointed and offers fantastic scope for modernisation, with the chance for the new owner to stamp their personality on the interiors.
This detached family home offers a wealth of flexible and versatile living space over three floors, extending to about 3113 sq ft. The accommodation is spacious throughout, with good size rooms featuring high ceilings, some with character features like exposed beams and picture rails. The ground floor has two reception spaces: a 31ft dual aspect lounge with fireplace, and a stunning orangery-style conservatory on the rear which has lovely views over the garden. The kitchen and dining room are open plan, there is a separate study and additional rooms including a utility room, cloakroom and boot room.
Upstairs the principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom, while the five further bedrooms spread across the first and second floors share a family bathroom and separate W.C.
The property is set back from the road and is approached via a private, gated driveway which offers a wealth of parking. The impressive gardens are beautifully landscaped and include a variety of mature specimen trees, including gingko, tulip and walnut, and the lawns are bordered by a variety of herbaceous plants and flowerbeds. The gardens are fully enclosed and feel very secluded and private.

This property has such a beautiful and secluded garden, whilst the house also has a lovely feel and scale to the room proportions. It is a lovely home, whilst I love Thorney's backstory and history, along with the chocolate box setting of Thorney Abbey.James AbbottProperty agent
