Property Description

Thrapston is at the centre of one of the fastest growing regions in the country and is strategically located at the
cross roads of two important regional and national routes being the A14 and the A45/A605. The A14 provides an
important dual carriageway between the A1 at Huntingdon and the M1/M6 at Catthorpe while the A45/A605 links the M1 at Northampton with the A1 at Peterborough providing an important north/south route across the country. Rail services are available to London in a journey time of under 1 hour, from Kettering (10 miles) Wellingborough (12 miles) Huntingdon (17 miles) and Peterborough (20 miles).
The town has a population of around 6,500 people and has a wide range of facilities to offer with a variety of shops and amenities within its centre. It is served by a Primary School with Secondary Education provided at the nearby Prince William School in Oundle, as well as public schools at Oundle (8 miles) Kimbolton (11 miles) Wellingborough (12 miles) and Bedford (22 miles). Excellent highway communications make other important regional centres readily accessible including Peterborough (20 miles) Northampton (22 miles) and Rushden Lakes Shopping (8.5 miles).

The site is situated on land to the rear of Chancery Lane and comprises a parcel of land approximately 1.14 acres in size. The site is within the Thrapston Conservation Area to the west of Chancery Lane, behind numbers 15 and 15a Chancery Lane. The land is currently overgrown grassland with trees bordering neighbouring properties. Castle Field playing fields borders the site to the northwest, along with Cosy Nook industrial area to the southwest. To the front of the site is a 1970’s style dormer bungalow and a grade II listed two storey building. The site is accessed via a driveway between 15 and 15a Chancery Lane and is currently used to provide parking facilities for 15a Chancery Lane.

It is understood that gas, mains electricity and water supplies are available in the Market Town as well as mains drainage. Prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries with the relevant service providers to establish connection costs for the proposed development.

Offers in the region of Seven Hundred Thousand Pounds (£700,000) Subject to Contract are invited for the freehold
interest in the property with vacant possession.
