Property description

Bishops House stands proudly on The Green in the heart of the buzzing village of Great Bowden and is home to this luxurious two bedroom apartment. Found on the first floor, this property is immaculate and has been looked after exceptionally well by the current owner. Bishops House was formerly the Bishop of Peterborough's hunting lodge and has since been cleverly sectioned into several stylish apartments 13 years ago but still bears the same character of its earlier years with its large windows and high ceilings. The living space to this property is most striking and features a lovely large window overlooking The Green and with glimpses of the village church beyond. The master bedroom has the luxury of a dedicated ensuite bathroom and fitted wardrobes and there is a further modern bathroom also. There is a beautiful South/West facing communal garden with an abundance of sweetly smelling roses that makes for the perfect backdrop to entertain guests!
