About this property

  • 327 Thorpe Road currently comprises a detached five bedroom dwelling, which was constructed in 1960 but with an earlier 1930s feel, that requires modernisation.

    The house sits within a mature garden plot of 0.66 of an acre within which cedar, evergreen and fruit trees ensure great privacy, set back from Thorpe Road and adjacent to the 14th century English Heritage Longthorpe Tower.

    In a fabulous setting adjacent to Longthorpe Tower and within Longthorpe Village's Conservation Area, the property is just two miles form Peterborough's mainline railway station and city centre.

    Peterborough City Council have granted planning consent (18/01892/FUL) dated 15th February 2019 permitting the demolition of the existing dwelling and the erection of a larger stone dwelling in its place. The newly permitted house would have stone elevations and faux Colleyweston roofing, with accommodation over three floors with 6 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms and a fabulous family kitchen connecting to the south facing mature gardens. The permitted house extends to circa 546 square meters GIA (including garaging), according to the architect's Design and Access statement. The planning consent and associated plans can be linked to on the Peterborough City Council Planning Portal Page here https://planpa.peterborough.gov.uk/online-applications/simpleSearchResults.do?action=firstPage

    The gardens are largely lawned and lie to the south of the house, with an array of fabulous trees, including cedar, apple and mixed fruit trees, with flowering and shrub borders and a paved seating terrace adjoining the house. An open fronted timber barn is positioned in the south west corner of the garden. The gardens are largely walled and extend to about 0.66 of an acre.

An almost unique offering, a detached house requiring modernisation within mature gardens of over half an acre, with planning consent for the dwelling's demolition and replacement with a fabulous new house, offering sumptuous proportions and connectivity with the beautiful gardens, all in a secluded city position close to Peterborough's commuter station and city amenities.
