Full description

This beautifully presented five bedroom family home boasts a stunning handmade oak fitted kitchen featuring an Aga and walk-in pantry. The kitchen breakfast room adjoins the light and airy conservatory with a vaulted ceiling and great views over the established low-maintenance garden. The accommodation includes two further reception rooms, the main living room with a contemporary open fire, spacious bedrooms and four bathrooms, with two en-suites. The home and garden stand on 1.6 acre plot which includes a one acre equestrian paddock. Other facilities and outbuildings include a double garage, tack room, two stables and a studio/office with cloakroom. The house is pleasantly situated in a quiet leafy village setting with excellent access to major commuter routes and schools.

When they were searching for a new home, the present owners wanted a location in a rural setting, which was conveniently close to work, schools, leisure and cultural opportunities.

They were thrilled to find, and immediately fell in love with Longlands, which ticked all their boxes. The spacious family home enjoys a delightful, quiet location in Old Weston village. It is an easy rail commute into London from Huntingdon or St Neots station, and the A14 provides connections with nearby historic and vibrant Cambridge, Stamford and Peterborough.

Longlands is an exquisite house that provides luxury living in a welcoming and comfortable home. As you cross the threshold, the first impression is of space and gleaming natural light that creates a positive ambience. The ground floor is a large and sociable hub, enjoyed by family and friends.

The owners favourite rooms and busy heart of the house are the kitchen and adjoining sun room. The kitchen is a place for family meals and where you can host informal chatty suppers. The Aga provides winter warmth whilst the patio doors, open in the summer, allows a blending of inside and outside living. The walk in pantry is fantastic for food storage and removes the need for kitchen wall cupboards.

The adjoining sunroom is a tranquil oasis. It is a place to chill out and savour the long view down the garden. Full of light even on the dullest of days, it tempts you to spend much time, simply sitting and watching the bird life and changing beauty of the seasons.

The five bedrooms range across two floors. The bedroom, dressing room and en suite on the second floor are perfect for a teenager to enjoy their own space or make convenient guest accommodation.

The garden is a picturesque and pastoral complement to the house. You can relax on the patio or under the tree of the first lawned area, and appreciate the stretch down to the pony paddock. The two stables and the tack room make the property ideal for the horse owner and the annexe above the double garage is an adaptable space for office, home gym or further accommodation.

The owners have loved their life in Old Weston, and have appreciated the friendly village, the local pub, farm shop, good dog walking and riding trails. Mostly they will miss Longlands, and take away many happy memories of the their time in the house and the fantastic sense of well being that it provided.
