It happened between January 11 and January 21 at a house on Outwell Road.
A police spokesman said: "The property is currently being renovated by builders and they left unexpectedly to complete an urgent job in London. They returned to discover a large amount of items missing including tools, building materials and personal possessions."
Items stolen include paint, boxes of laminated flooring, 40 lengths of copper tubing, a concrete mixer, various DVDs and CDs, a hi-fi stereo, four drills, four saws, a spirit level, ladder, disc cutter, wheelbarrow and a freezer.
The thieves got in either through the rear patio doors or a side window in the garage.
