Property Summary

THE VILLAGE OF EYE is located on the old route of the A.47 (now by-passed) Peterborough to Wisbech Road about 3 miles north-east of the city centre. The village has a good range of amenities including a Post Office, general stores, public house, restaurant, chemist and a primary school. The village is a short drive from Peterborough’s ring-road system at junction 8 of Frank Perkins Parkway with Paston Parkway.

THIS SPACIOUS DETACHED PROPERTY which is located on the eastern edge of a Conservation Area, is believed to be of Victorian origin and was at one time the Head Teacher’s House and ancillary staff accommodation for the nearby former village schools. There are later single and two-storey extensions.  No. 1 Thorney Road has until recently been used as a retail barker, but would readily convert into a separate residential annexe, subject to planning and Conservation Area approval. 

The property has undergone considerable updating, but still retains many period features and offers scope for further improvements to suit prospective purchasers' particular requirements.


A copy of the full Energy Performance Certificate is available for inspection at our office.


Band ‘D’ payable to Peterborough City Council.
