The property is situated on the south side of Stowe Road towards the west side of the village of Langtoft and to the east of King Street. Langtoft offers a variety of local village facilities and amenities, is astride the A15 Bourne/Market Deeping/Peterborough Road and access is available via King Street to the south. Stamford, the historic medieval finest limestone town in England with all of its attractions lies 7 miles to the west, Peterborough is only 9 miles to the south, the A1 with easy north and south connections is available at Stamford and the main East Coast line rail connections available from Peterborough to London's King's Cross (minimum journey time approximately 45 minutes). The additional market towns in the area include Bourne, Grantham, Sleaford and Spalding and are all within easy travelling reach as is the nearby centre of Market Deeping (2 miles) which also offers extensive local facilities and amenities.
Description This is divided into a number of lakes and water areas. Towards the centre, the late Mr & Mrs Gibbons established their home at Water's Edge which is an idyllic setting and whilst the Water's Edge (house) represents architectural thinking in the 1960's/70's, the opportunity is readily available for refurbishment/renovation/restyling or replacement subject to planning permission. Without doubt, it must occupy one of the most attractive settings for a residential property in this area, being completely private and having water on all sides but retaining a magical island setting with private grounds in the immediate vicinity. It is approached from Stowe Road over a private driveway from the north.
The second gateway lies closer to the village gives access to the remainder of the property and runs down the west side of land that is being retained out of the sale. The setting is idyllically natural with a wealth of trees providing screening, shelter and privacy to most boundaries.
