Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive six bedroom stone and collyweston Listed village home positioned within 1.8 acres, or thereabouts, of mature gardens with an outbuilding annexe and garaging, 5.5 miles from the Cathedral City of Peterborough's centre and mainline commuter railway station.


The Village Manor is in the village of Castor, an attractive village of largely stone buildings 5 miles to the west of the Cathedral City of Peterborough's city centre. Castor has rich Roman origins, and was the site of BBC TV Time Team excavation at St Kyneburgha's Church, a fine Norman church which is not far from this property, in 2011.

Castor supports a village shop, public house, and is close to Peterborough Golf Club, whilst Peterborough itself provides a comprehensive range of retail and sports facilities, as well as main line commuter links to London and the north, as well as to Cambridge. Stamford, an attractive Georgian market town and the country's first designated Conservation Area in the 1960s provides a charming and eclectic range of shops of restaurants, and is also well known for Burghley House, whose gardens are a delight.

Along with its very good commuter rail and road links, the area is also spoilt for choice of excellent private schooling and well-thought of state education, and Stamford, Oundle and Uppingham Schools, as well as The Peterborough School are just some of the well-known educational establishments within 20 miles.


The Village Manor is a well presented and elegant south facing home, which retains a wealth of character and period features, including wide board oak floors and timber beamed ceilings, a panelled dining room and inglenook fireplaces, combined with a modern feel and a lovely flow. Set back within its extensive gardens and approached along a sweeping driveway, the landscaped gardens are also lovely, ensuring privacy and with formal lawns to the south, west and north of the house, an orchard and terraces from which to track the sun through the day.

The front door opens into a generously proportioned oak floored reception hallway, with beamed ceiling and an attractive stone fireplace, which occupies the core of the H-plan house. A lovely stone arch with flagged floor opens alongside to the elegant sitting room, with wood burning stove, and the study/office and the triple-aspect Family Room beyond, from which French doors open to the garden's west terrace. Accessed from the reception hallway to the north, the oak floored and panelled dining room is triple-aspect and also has French doors to the garden, whilst the kitchen adjoins the hallway to the east and occupies the entire length of the of one wing. The kitchen comprises an extensive fitted suite with storage units beneath Silestone worktops, with a breakfast bar and an electric Aga within an inglenook as the focal point, whilst the travertine floored room also has ample ancillary space for living or dining. The utility/boot room alongside, with doors to both front and rear gardens, and the cloaks/WC, complete the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor provides six double bedrooms, served by three bath or shower rooms. The principal dual-aspect bedroom has an en-suite shower room, as does guest bedroom two, with bedrooms three to six sharing the well-appointed family bathrooms which is positioned in the centre of the house.

Electric gates open to the gravelled driveway, which sweeps past the annexe/games room, and through the grounds to a turning sweep to the front of the house, where there is also a double garage. The gardens lie to the south, west and north of the house and extend to 1.8 acres or thereabouts. Largely lawned, the gardens incorporate mixed fruit and deciduous tree species, as well as shrubs. There is also a summer house with a water supply.
