Thorpe Road, PE3
Longthorpe is a village 2 miles from Peterborough city centre and the East Coast main railway line with high speed links to London King’s Cross, Leeds and Edinburgh. The village is active socially with church, post office, memorial hall, bowling green and all year tennis courts. It has an excellent frequent bus service to the city centre. Peterborough combines the historic and the modern from its magnificent medieval cathedral to its shopping mall, recreational & educational facilities.
‘Foxgloves’is grade II listed and was formerly 3 stone cottages built in the early18th century. Some 40 years ago its photograph adorned the box of a famous brand of chocolates! It has undergone much renovation over recent years, in particular a complete rethatch in 2017 and now is a charming, well-maintained and spacious 4 bedroomed cottage with a completely separate 2 bedroom annexe with its own utilities. The annexe is presently used as a separate dwelling but equally it can be incorporated into the main house with access off the more recently constructed orangery.
The heart of the house is perhaps the bespoke cosy farmhouse kitchen with a gas fired aga. Whilst there is a wealth of quirkiness including beams, inglenooks with open fires, it also has all the modern conveniences including high speed cable broadband to both properties.
The property sits in grounds of approximately half an acre with secluded gardens laid to lawn with a pond, water feature and many mature trees and shrubs. The bottom of the garden could potentially be used to for a separate vegetable plot or perhaps a badminton court or swimming pool. The rear of the property and the annexe is accessed by a driveway leading to a double garage with automated doors and off road parking for several cars plus a large patio area suitable for entertaining.
Leave Peterborough city centre and travel west along Thorpe Road. Turn right at the first roundabout continuing along Thorpe Road where after about a mile you will enter the village of Longthorpe. The village post office is to be found on the left hand side and ‘Foxgloves’is situated just beyond the zebra crossing on the right hand side.
