Inside the £1m Peterborough mansion that looks like something out of Downton Abbey

You would have to part with well over £1 million for this Thornhaugh mansion A mansion that wouldn’t be out of place in the world of Downton Abbey is up for sale in Thornhaugh.

‘The Old Rectory’ is located about 10 miles from central Peterborough and is on the market for £1.5 million.

Dating back to the 1620s, with additions from the 18th century, this Georgian style property has a Collyweston slate roof, with moulded stone architraves and mullion windows.

However, the style doesn’t quite convey what this home is all about.

The sheer size and volume of it is something to behold. I’m sure Lord Grantham would find it agreeable.

It boasts 10 (yes, 10) bedrooms, four bathrooms, six reception rooms and a cellar with four rooms. If that’s not quite enough, it also has an outdoor swimming pool and landscaped gardens.

Three of the six reception rooms enjoy a southerly aspect, so they’ll also be nice and sunny, which makes a big difference to the feeling of an older home.
