Property Summary

THE CONSERVATION VILLAGE OF HELPSTON is located on the B.1443 Glinton to Stamford Road about 8 miles north-west of Peterborough and 7 miles east of Stamford. Market Deeping lies about 5 miles to the north. Amenities within the village include a Post Office/village store, a primary school and a public house/restaurant. The village was once the home of John Clare, "the countryside poet", whose cottage is a visitor attraction and whose tomb is in the 13th century parish church of St. Botolph.

THIS INDIVIDUALLY-DESIGNED AND SPACIOUS DETACHED HOUSE is believed to date from the 1970s and has part stone elevations with timber boarding at first floor level and an interlocking tiled roof. It occupies a secluded site in the heart of the village and is within the designated Conservation Area. The house, which has some interesting architectural features, would now benefit from general modernisation.

The first floor accommodation includes a large Store Room which has potential for use as a home theatre or further bedroom accommodation, subject to planning and other consents.
