Situated within the pretty Cambridgeshire village of Holywell is Hunters Moon, a very attractive family home that was beautifully designed and built in 1997. It was definitely the setting that initially attracted us to the house, says Tim. Holywell is a very traditional village and much sought after. Its surrounded by beautiful countryside and just at the end of the road we have a really lovely riverside pub; its an idyllic place to live.

We purchased the house in 2002, so it was fairly new at the time and in good order, but over the years weve done a lot of work to enhance it further. Weve covered in the porch and made a lobby with under-floor heating; weve refurbished the bathrooms and completely replaced the kitchen with high-spec contemporary units and appliances, and we also took the opportunity to have under-floor heating installed in kitchen and hallway, which has separate controllers that can be programmed for each day and at different times. Most recently weve replaced all the windows with high-spec, double-glazed units thats had a huge impact on the heating bill and weve replace the old sliding patio doors with modern French doors. The house as a whole is now really lovely both inside and out.

The garden was completely re-landscaped just a year ago and is now another really lovely feature of the property, continues Tim. We have a pretty patio terrace, which is a great place to sit out in the evening and enjoy a nice glass of cold wine, and beyond that is a large area of lawn thats edged with stone setts to give a clean mowing edge. Weve also used sleepers to create raised beds, and all of the planting areas have had anti-weed membranes installed and bark chips laid on top to give a nice clean finish. Its now a really attractive space and one that has a good degree of privacy.

The living room is probably our favourite room in the house, says Tim. It has French doors that open out onto the garden and during the winter, the multi-fuel burner creates a really cosy atmosphere.

I love the fact that the setting is so peaceful and picturesque, and that the village has a really nice community feel, says Tim. And having Ferry Boat close by, where we can enjoy a spot of lunch on a Sunday afternoon while watching the seals in the river, has been a real bonus.

The house and garden are extremely conducive to entertaining, says Tim. I recently celebrated my 55th birthday and after some lovely food and a few drinks at the village pub, everyone came back here to continue the party. It was a great day.

I will really miss this house as I love everything about it, says Tim, but Ill also be sad to leave the village. We have lovely neighbours, and Ill miss being able to stroll over to the pub for a drink or a meal in evening, and sitting by the river fishing with some cold beers on hand. Its been a fabulous place to live.
