Full description

This substantial family home has been extended and refurbished throughout including newly fitted bathrooms and kitchen. An environmentally friendly boiler benefits from a Renewable Heating Incentive producing a grant of approximately £700 per quarter (commenced Jan 2015 with a 7 year term). The ground floor includes three reception rooms, conservatory and kitchen breakfast room with utility. There are five bedrooms and three bathrooms which could easily be separated to create a two bedroom annexe with bathroom and dedicated entrance. Outside the gardens extend to over a third of an acre with a south facing aspect and include ample parking and a double garage. Wyboston allows easy access to nearby St. Neots with excellent rail services into London.

We moved to Willow End in 1998 because my husband worked in St Neots and I think what most attracted us to this house in particular was the location. Its absolutely beautiful and appears to be very rural, but its actually just moments away from the fabulous shops and amenities of the town.

Around twenty years ago the house was extended, and essentially doubled in size and then last year we embarked upon a total renovation which included adding a double-height extension to the front of the house, a single-storey extension to the back and a large double brick built garage. We also modernised each of the bathrooms and put in a lovely new kitchen, which is now a fabulous space where we can cook, eat and entertain, and the patio doors allow everyday life to spill out into the garden, weather permitting. The whole house is now wonderfully spacious and looking absolutely beautiful.

Our main motivation for carrying out the work was to update the heating system which is now extremely economical to run. The system uses a stove burner which burns wood pellets, and it along with the Renewable Heat Incentive grant means that we actually receive more money than we pay to heat the house.

Our location is absolutely beautiful. Its wonderfully peaceful and we have views in every direction; we all just love it here. The children have been able to cycle to school and I can hop in the car and be in the centre of town in next to no time. We also have excellent road and rail links close at hand.

Favourite room: I think my favourite part of the house is the master bedroom. Weve added a Juliet balcony, which is south facing, so we can wake up to the most beautiful view of the garden, the willow trees and the fields beyond.

Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area: The garden is lovely and a particularly nice place to entertain friends and family. We have a summer party most years, childrens birthday parties and lots of social gatherings. If you like to entertain, then this house is fantastic.

Memorable event (if not another favourite room or unique feature): We have two staircases in the house, one of which leads up to a couple of bedrooms that can serve as a self-contained annexe. One of the rooms has a fully equipped kitchenette, so it would be ideal for a teenager or older relative.

What theyll miss most / why they are leaving: We feel that the time is now right for us to downsize, but we will be very sad to leave. It has been a superb place to bring up our children, but its now time for another family to enjoy it and all of its many benefits.
