Collyweston is a picturesque village of mainly stone built properties on the side of the River Welland valley. The village is a popular residential area with a recently opened community shop, public house, and church. The village straddles the A43 Stamford/Kettering road, approximately 2 to 3 miles to the Al and A47 trunk roads, giving good access to the nearby towns of Stamford, Peterborough, Kettering, Uppingham and Grantham. Intercity train services are available from Peterborough, approx 50 minutes to London Kings Cross, and the station at Stamford for local and cross country routes.
A truly bespoke home specifically designed and built to form a contemporary family home with the emphasis on high level energy efficiency and ease of maintenance. Built using a heavy oak timber frame with the clever use of rendering, Western Red Cedar weatherboarding and large triple glazed areas with velux windows gives the property an individual external appearance which allows natural light to flood into the accommodation. The oak continues internally with doors and archives combined with exposed brickwork.
