The Location: Thurning is a picturesque village with a delightful 13th century church. It lies approximately 6 miles from the historic town of Oundle, which offers a range of traditional family run businesses, shops and restaurants set around the market place. The village of Barnwell lies approximately 2 miles from Thurning and has an excellent pub and a well-stocked village shop. More extensive facilities are available in Peterborough as well as main line rail travel with journey times to Kings Cross from 50 minutes. There is an excellent choice of schooling, both state and private, in the region.

Formerly a pair of "two up, two down" farm workers' cottages, knocked through to create a single dwelling. The property is of brick and concrete tile construction with a single storey rear addition that was added in the 1980's. This detached home is offered for sale for the first time in fifty years and retains many period features. Although many PVCu double glazed windows have been installed there is significant scope to further improve the dwelling in order to create an outstanding family property. Both staircases remain and it would seem feasible to revert to a pair of cottages or remain in the current single dwelling format.
The property backs onto permanent pasture and there are distant views to the east across the Nene Valley.
For sale with no upward chain.
