This greatly improved and extended family home was, in part, built more than 200 years ago. This house sits tucked away in a quiet and peaceful part of the historic heart of Godmanchester. Given its charter in 1212 by King John, a history of settlement on the site of Godmanchester dates back more than 2000 years. The Celts, the Romans and the Anglo-Saxons have all left their mark upon this ancient town.
"I used to pass this house when I was a child, but never once thought that one day I would actually live here," says Angela "we owned the paddock behind the house and one day after riding the horses we saw that the house was up for sale. It was a perfect opportunity to combine our paddock with a property that had the potential to be a wonderful family home." "We have just over an acre of grounds," comments Ian. The house was originally two small cottages and so we decided to extend out to the rear to make it a wonderful spacious home that would be able to cope with all the demands of a modern lifestyle. The house does extend and open out before you, its light and bright and extremely spacious, in fact the house is probably about three times the original size."
"We have absolutely loved every minute here," says Angela "it is going to be the most enormous wrench to leave. Sharing all this with the special people in our lives has probably given us our greatest joy. The house is just ideal for entertaining, and when the French doors are thrown open onto the gardens; guests can simply drift in and out. We have had wonderful parties and barbecues, played family games of rounders in the grounds on a balmy summers' day and had the house abuzz with activity at Christmas time with family and friends - with the kitchen always at the heart and hub of the home. This has been, for us, a much loved family home, with so much space and freedom, within walking distance of all amenities and yet completely tucked away and very private. We shall miss everything about living here and I hope that the new owners will find the same happiness and contentment that we found here, this has been a very special place to live indeed!"
