Property description

This deceptively spacious, modernised house has a great flow and is centrally positioned within a large garden, with gated driveway and integral garaging on the edge of a popular village


Wansford is a sought after village alongside the River Nene. It is conveniently positioned for the A1 and A47, along with the cathedral city of Peterborough (eight miles), with its commuter rail services to London Kings Cross and Cambridge (from 50 mins).

The village has an attractive high street, with several shops and public houses. It also has a doctor’s surgery with pharmacy.

The neighbouring villages of Nassington (two miles) and Wittering (four miles) offer primary schools, with a garden centre in Elton (four miles).   Indeed, the area is spoilt for its choice of well-thought of schools and The Peterborough School, Stamford Endowed and Oundle Schools are within a 10 mile radius.


A deceptively spacious and beautifully presented detached house centrally positioned within a generous garden, with woodland fringe, gated driveway and integral double garage, this is a lovely home and, in recent years, an award winning B&B. It offers well proportioned accommodation with a good flow with a fabulous 2015 family dining kitchen extension.   

The wide entrance hallway provides access to a 22’ sitting room with open fire, as well as the utility with integral double garage beyond, and study. Double doors open into the dining room and the double height family kitchen beyond, so there is essentially an open plan core to this home.

The under-floor heated family kitchen offers ample space for seating, eating and entertaining, with a contemporary wood burning stove and large oak windows offering attractive garden views. The Neptune kitchen has granite worktops, double Belfast sink, an electric triple oven Aga and large island with breakfast bar, incorporating a Neff induction hob and Neff 'Hide and Slide' oven. There is also a larder room alongside.

At first floor level, as befits a successful B&B, the five bedrooms are all elegantly proportioned. Three are en suite, all modern, with a family shower room serving bedrooms three and five.

The electrically gated driveway sweeps through the front garden to parking at the house for several vehicles, and access to the integral double garage, with its remote controlled entrance. The gardens are a delight. Largely lawned and partially walled, they have mature shrubs and a deep woodland garden of mixed species deciduous trees along northern boundary, which ensures vibrancy, privacy and visual interest.

Services: Mains electricity, water & drainage. LPG gas central heating.

Square Footage: 2983 sq ft
