About this property

  • A well-appointed detached four bedroom house, thought to date originally from around the 1930s, but much altered since, which has been within the same ownership for the past 30 years. The property has a modern finish and has an oversized ground floor layout, ideal for families and for entertaining. It is a house that has a sense and space and volume, with large reception rooms from which there are attractive southerly views over the mature garden, and access, via French doors, from all the garden facing rooms.

    The wide entrance hallway, which is open to the vaulted sitting room provides sightlines from the front door right through to the garden, whilst double doors also open from the hallway to the dining room and kitchen/breakfast room, either side.

    The sitting room is at a slightly lower level than the hallway, but with a higher vaulted ceiling, whilst there are also tall windows and doors offering views through the covered veranda that spans the width of the house of the garden. It combines to offer an almost Mediterranean feel, with a contemporary gas corner fireplace as a further feature.

    The dual-aspect kitchen/breakfast room is 27' long, with a fabulous polished bur-walnut style floor. The room offers space for dining near the garden French doors, whilst fitted suite incorporates a Fisher & Paykel cooker, with space for dishwasher and washing machine.

    Across the hallway from the kitchen, double doors open into a symmetrical dining room, with a large window overlooking the driveway to the front of the house. Alongside the dining room, a home office adjoins a linear conservatory with double doors providing garden access.

    At first floor there are four bedrooms served by two bath or shower rooms. The principal bedroom has an en suite shower room, with both his and her sinks. Bedrooms one and two also access a south facing roof terrace above the sitting room, where there is also a brick built BBQ. The two further bedrooms, one of which has a walk-in wardrobe, are served by the property's well-appointed family bathroom. Both en suite and bathroom are underfloor heated.

    The property occupies a good size plot of 0.25 acres in total, with off street parking on the gravelled driveway, which also offers access to the detached double garage. The principal private garden lies to the south (rear) of the house. It is largely lawned, with flowering beds, shrubs and mature trees, offering visual interest and privacy, leading to a stream at the southern property boundary.

I love this property's position, convenient for Peterborough's favoured schools, its station and city centre (both of which are less than a mile's walk), but it is also a short distance from the city's rowing lake and Ferry Meadows Country Park, it's city and country, the best of both worlds!
