Full descriptionAn EXCEPTIONAL and substantial FIVE bedroom Victorian family home, which is well positioned in this pretty village and offers a LARGE private rear garden.
"On discovering this property, it ticked all the boxes for us." says Holly "Two Victorian cottages had been tastefully converted into one large family house, totally renovated and refurbished to an extremely high standard and in perfect condition; we knew at once that this was to be our home. Since living here our numbers have increased and it has proved to be the perfect home for us. I love everything about it, particularly the high ceilings and the bright, spacious rooms, together with the large amounts of storage space. Some lovely Victorian touches remain, such as the fireplaces in some rooms, including the sitting room, which now has a wood burning stove fitted into the space, giving such a lovely, warm ambience. The large kitchen/family room is a delightful area and has the added luxury of a walk in pantry, plus an adjacent room which we use as a family play space. The kitchen opens out through patio doors onto a sunny terrace, perfect for outside dining. We do love to welcome and entertain our friends and family, the house and garden being ideal for this, especially on the occasion when we held a christening party for 60 guests."
"Inheriting such a lovely garden has proved to be a useful learning experience for us." adds Jim "We have developed our horticultural skills and enjoy all the fruit and vegetables which we produce. There is a tiny, bubbling brook at the edge of the garden which we have enclosed, which has proved to be an excellent 'run' for chickens, with water and food laid on. It is also a lovely garden for children providing them with their own secret garden."
"This is such a convenient place in which to live, with lots of convenience stores and facilities, all within walking distance." continues Holly "The friendly village is very active with regular social activities taking place in the village hall, plus there are many clubs and classes to suit all interests. There is an excellent primary school very close, with state and independent schools within easy reach. Huntingdon, which is just 10 minutes away, is where there are larger supermarkets, plus the main line station providing a quick journey into London Kings Cross of 50 minutes."
"Our time in this magical house has been wonderful and we wish we could just pick it up and take with us."
