Property description

A detached and unlisted five bedroom house which requires modernisation, off Thorpe Road (one of Peterborough’s premier residential addresses) within Longthorpe's Conservation Area and next door to English Heritage’s Longthorpe Tower. Within mature and private gardens of over half an acre, the property is also just two miles from Peterborough Cathedral and Peterborough's mainline railway station for commuting to London or Cambridge.


Longthorpe was a historic village in its own right which over time has been enveloped by the Cathedral City of Peterborough, whose railway station and city centre is just 2 miles from the property.

Longthorpe retains its character and is a highly sought after suburb of the city and, in Longthorpe Tower which is adjacent to the property, a 14th century fortified manor house which is managed by English Heritage, there are examples of reputedly some of northern Europe’s finest domestic paintings.


A detached dwelling which occupies a secluded position set back from Thorpe Road and adjacent to the 14th century English Heritage Longthorpe Tower. Within mature gardens, the property was constructed in the 1960s for a successful Peterborough family, in whose single ownership the property has remained to this day.

With an earlier 1930s feel, the south facing house offers symmetrical rooms with large windows and fine views of the largely walled and mature gardens of circa 0.66 of an acre, within which cedar, evergreen and fruit trees ensure great privacy.

The five bedroomed dwelling is not Listed, although does lie within a Conservation Area and requires modernisation, but offers well-proportioned accommodation with some nice features. There is also thought to be potential, subject to all necessary consents, to extend the house over the garage.

Approached along a lane that serves three other dwellings from Thorpe Road itself, the property has a tarmac driveway and turning sweep, with access to the integral double garage.

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 circa 0.66 of an acre.

Restricted Covenant
Interested parties should note that there is a Title Covenant limiting the property to a single private dwelling house. Due to the excellent location of this property and the site’s potential for future development, a development clawback clause will be included in the contract in respect of any uplift in value arising from the future development of the site (excluding extensions to the current dwelling, or ancillary buildings). Further details are available from the agent.
