Occupying a gorgeous countryside location on the edge of the charming village of Kings Ripton is Brook House, a beautifully presented six-bedroom family home that boasts a large and very attractive garden. “We bought the house back in 2018, but before that we’d been renting it for three years and we absolutely fell in love with the place. So when the previous owners told us they were thinking of selling we jumped at the chance to buy it,” says the owner. “It’s a really lovely big family home and the setting is just stunning. The house itself sits in the middle of a huge plot and to the back and of the property there’s nothing but rolling fields so the outlook is leafy and green and we enjoy utter peace and privacy. It’s a place where we’ve been able to enjoy all the benefits of countryside living with all the convenience of having a number of large towns and cities very close by.”
“The house was built in the 1990s and it’s been beautifully designed for family life and entertaining. The layout is quite traditional – i.e. separate kitchen, separate living room etc. – however all of the rooms are extremely spacious, they flow really well and there are lots of them so there are areas in which we can have big get-togethers, but spaces that you can take yourself off to if you want a bit of separation. The reception rooms are also really flexible in terms of how they can be used. At the moment we have one set up as a cinema, but it could be a lovely playroom, a family room or a less formal space for teens. In short, I’d say the layout can be adapted and changed depending on the family’s needs, so the new owners will be able to grow into it rather than out of it – it’s the perfect family home.”
“The house is very spacious, but there’s also a huge room above the garage. We use it as extra storage but the previous owners ran a call centre from it and had around six desks up there so it could be a great home office.”
“Something else we love is the fact that the house is really nicely positioned right in the middle of around three quarters of an acre of land so we have a vast amount of outside space both front and back. To the front is a huge driveway – on which we have been known to fit twenty-five cars – and we also have a separate garage and carport block. To the back is a really stunning garden that incorporates an exceptionally large, slightly raised patio, and from that steps lead down to a vast area of lawn. It’s edged with mature trees and shrubs, and as I mentioned before, to the back and side of the garden is nothing but open farmland so we get a tremendous variety of wildlife. It’s a really tranquil environment and sitting out there you get the feeling of being miles from anywhere.”
“I honestly don’t think I could pick a favourite room. The kitchen is a lovely big family space and great for entertaining, the living room has a gorgeous view of the garden, the cinema room is great for nights in… As I said, it’s almost impossible to choose.”
“In my opinion the location of the house would be hard to better. We have peace and privacy and all of this stunning countryside right on our doorstep, and at the same time were just ten minutes from Huntingdon and around half an hour from both Peterborough and Cambridge.”
“We will miss this glorious setting the most when we leave,” says the owner. “It’s so lovely to be able to sit out on the patio, watch the wildlife and enjoy complete and utter peace and privacy. I’m sure the new owners will be extremely happy here.”
