Full description

This four bedroom detached family home offers two main reception rooms, a study and a refitted kitchen breakfast room with matching utility room. There are four good sized bedrooms, two with en-suites, and a family bathroom. The location is ideal, being situated on a private drive, and has a secluded south facing rear garden with a view over a paddock. There is ample parking on the wide driveway in addition to the adjoining double garage.

The quiet village of Perry lies on the shore of Grafham Water reservoir, not far from the pretty market towns of St Neots and Huntingdon. Its an enviable spot that benefits from mile upon mile of open countryside as well as easy access to the huge array of water sports and outdoor pursuits that the reservoir has to offer. Prospect house is a lovely family home that occupies a superb position on the edge of the popular village.

We bought this house just over nineteen years ago after relocating from Yorkshire, says Kate, and what really attracted us to it was the location. The village is small but friendly, and with Grafham Water just a short stroll away there are a so many leisure facilities for the children, so theyre afforded a great deal of freedom and are able to just go off and explore. We also loved the fact that the house backs onto open fields; the views are stunning and its so peaceful here.

Prospect House was built in 1995, and is one of just six houses on a quiet cul-de-sac on the edge of the village. It is beautifully presented throughout and has a layout that is ideal for busy family life. Both the living room and the kitchen are situated at the back of the house, says Kate, so they both benefit from the views, and as the garden is south facing, natural light streams in throughout the day, so its always wonderfully bright and airy. The kitchen is large enough to have a table and chairs for informal meals, but theres also a more formal dining room, which is lovely for entertaining, and when the patio doors from the living room are pushed back life can spill out onto the sunny terrace beyond.

This lovely home benefits from a wonderfully spacious garden. It is bordered on either side by high fencing, but the boundary overlooking the field beyond has been purposely kept low so as not to obscure the pretty views. It is a space that is bathed in sunshine during the summer months, and because of the location of the property it is also extremely peaceful.

Perry has been a very nice place to live, says Kate. It has a shop for those last minute necessities, a Post Office and a friendly pub. Theres also a sailing club, an angling centre and a lovely little caf on the bank of the reservoir. Its a very beautiful spot, but its also extremely convenient. Its possible to commute into London and both St Neots and Huntingdon have train stations with fast services into the city centre. Were also close to a great many really good local schools, so its a really family orientated place, which we have loved.

Were hoping to stay in the village when we move, concludes Kate, but I for one will miss the location of Prospect House greatly because its just so peaceful and the views are stunning. Its also been a fantastic place for children to grow up; I think it will be hard to find another house that can compete.
