The present owners had their architect designed house built to an exactingly high standard ensuring that it would have an easy flow of family-size rooms with windows arranged to allow light to flood in, creating a bright and vibrant ambience. Their attention to detail included much care over the front façade, which provides an attractive approach to the house and as you step into the hallway, the first impression is of a warm, welcoming and happy home. The kitchen is the daily hub of activity with a cooking friendly environment and is where everyone gathers for daily meals and chatting. Views to the garden give kitchen and garden a sense of one unified space whilst with the doors open you can enjoy a relaxed and sunny al fresco breakfast on the patio.
Family together time can be spent in the family room although it is conveniently situated far enough from the sitting room to ensure that different generations can enjoy their own spaces. The elegant sitting room is perfect for formal entertaining and is an all-year room with the fire providing a cosy winter glow or a gentle breeze through open doors creating a cooling summer refuge. The large dining area can be incorporated into the hallway, ideal for parties or seating up to fifteen for a meal. Guests are easily accommodated in the five bedrooms whilst the adjoining two bedroom, self contained annexe is a perfect overflow space for guests or more permanently for children or grandparents. This property gives a wide choice of rooms that are easy and pleasing to live in.
The landscaped gardens are a perfect complement to the house where adults can chill out in harmonious surroundings, children have room to play in the wild area at the end of the garden and the visiting pheasants enjoy a daily feeding session. The three boxes in the stable yard lead into the paddocks and whether you want to relax, walk the dogs or ride horses, the grounds provide entertainment for the whole family. Fulbourn has shops for everyday needs whilst cultural and retail opportunities are found in Cambridge. The nearby A11 and M11 give access to national road links and Stansted Airport is under an hour away. This family house is a much loved home that will be sorely missed.
