Property SummaryTHE HISTORIC VILLAGE OF THORNEY, with its ancient Abbey, is located at the junction of the old route of the A.47 (now by-passed) and the B.1040, about 7 miles north-east of Peterborough city centre, 5 miles north of Whittlesey and 5 miles south of Crowland. There is a good range of facilities in the village including some shopping facilities, a primary school and the Rose and Crown pub.
THIS GRADE II LISTED 3 BEDROOM VICTORIAN END-TERRACED COTTAGE, which has brick elevations with wrought-stone detailing and a tiled roof, is believed to date from the mid-1800s. It has been skilfully updated in recent years to incorporate modern facilities whilst retaining its essential period charm.
