"For some time we had been searching for a family home within walking distance of Kimbolton School and we could not believe our good fortune when we happen-chanced upon this lovely house right in the heart of this much sought after village," explains Ray "The house is utterly charming and was originally built in the 1700's and thankfully, still retains many of its original features which adds so much to its own unique character."
"It is a home that our friends and family have always felt a genuine warmth and welcome," says Frances "and we have enjoyed sharing this house with them on special family occasions throughout the year - particularly at Christmas when the whole family come here for the holidays. With the house dressed in its festive livery, a welcoming fire, and filled with the sound of chatter and laughter - there can be no better place to be. Corner House just seems to lend itself perfectly to those occasions, the flexibility of the spaces means we can all be together with space enough for the children to have a room to themselves whilst we continue our conversations by the fire."
"Kimbolton itself has been a unique and special place to live," continues Ray "the wide elegant High street provides shopping facilities for most of the day to day needs including a wonderful delicatessen and our visitors find it almost impossible to pass the Choclatiers without a quick visit inside! The eclectic mix of 16th, 17th and 18th century buildings along the High Street lead one towards the impressive entrance of Kimbolton Castle, and a stroll around the grounds after a Sunday lunch at the excellent The New Sun Inn on the High Street is a lovely way to conclude the afternoon. This location has been absolutely ideal for all town and country pursuits, surrounded by wonderful countryside and still be within such easy reach of larger towns and transport links. The A14 and A1M are easy to access with nearby Huntingdon and St Neots having main line rail stations providing an easy London commute of just under 1 hour."
"We shall miss everything about this amazing house," adds Ray "every single room really does seems to have its own unique character and charm. Some years ago we decided to convert the barn, in the walled courtyard, into a garden lounge, it's self contained from the main house and is just a superbly peaceful and relaxing place to be, in fact we have often thought it would be an ideal artist's studio or an office - but what I shall miss most about the garden lounge is the delight of breakfast here, on a beautiful summer's morning with the doors thrown wide open soaking up the peaceful atmosphere - a truly perfect way to begin a new day!"
