Seller Insight

“The location was a big attraction for us initially. We enjoy the village lifestyle and we have lovely views over open fields, yet we’re also close to the A1 and Sandy railway station for commuting purposes. The size and layout of the property was important too and the fact that it was a newbuild house by a local builder was also an attractive proposition,” say the owners.

“We’ve lived here for 21 years and have made a number of improvements during that time, including the installation of solar panels on south facing roof, as well as changing all of the windows and external doors to high specification UPVC which has improved the heat retention. We also replaced the garage door to an electric version with insulation which has been very useful.”

“It’s easy to keep active here as we have some lovely countryside walks and bike rides accessible right from our door and there are plenty of wildlife watching opportunities on those outings. One of the villagers runs a good Italian cafe/restaurant in Sandy and our favourite Indian restaurant is there too. The village hall hosts classes and local events, including the annual village show and opening of the interesting Tempsford museum, which gives an opportunity to meet other villagers over tea and cake whilst you learn about the local area.”

“Our back garden is enclosed and sheltered with a sunny patio but also provides a shady refuge on the hottest days. We enjoy watching a variety of wild birds from the lounge through the patio doors and the kitchen window. The fruit trees in our 2-acre field provide apples, pears, and plums, as well as the pleasure of watching birds, butterflies, and dragon flies as we plant, weed and harvest. The pond and surrounding willows are a shady refuge on a hot summer’s day and our hens and ducks appreciate it too. The large barn has power and water and provides useful storage, as well as shelter for the sheep.”

“The spacious lounge gives access onto the patio and opening the doors in summer makes it feel as if the garden is an extension of the lounge which is great for entertaining. We can accommodate up to 12 people for formal dinner around a table in the dining room. The fourth bedroom has been in use as an office enabling us to work from home for the last 10 years.”

Silver Street, Godmanchester, PE29

This truly unique property is located in an enviable position right in the heart of the bustling town of Godmanchester, and less than a mile from the centre of Huntingdon.

Converted from a former Baptist chapel in the late 1980's it has been updated and improved by the current owners to create a breath-taking blend of character features and high end, contemporary design.

With incredibly versatile living accommodation there is scope to add additional living space or potentially an annexe area at the rear for the growing family.

Entering through the elegant main doors there is a lobby with access to two work from home office spaces which could, alternatively be used as additional guest bedrooms, from the lobby you then enter the fabulous open plan family space with vaulted ceilings and a very modern feel. Also on the ground floor are two generous bedrooms, a family bathroom and a stunning kitchen/breakfast area.

To the rear is a workshop/studio area which could be a home gym, cinema room or possibly a self-contained annexe.

Upstairs is a glorious main bedroom suite with en-suite wetroom, dressing area and spiral staircase.

Outside is a very smart garage with additional parking if required.

Seller Insight

Font House immediately attracted the present owners, who loved the unique and charming ambience of this former Baptist Church that has been sympathetically converted into a spacious and comfortable family home. They experience the wow factor of the striking glass entrance, and the welcoming atmosphere of the house, with its flood of natural light pouring in through the generous windows.

The luxury of space within the open plan ground floor is quite spectacular. The large family zone is the outstanding sociable hub, being the heart of the home where there is enough room for everyone to meet or have individual space, in the two rooms to the front of the house. It is a pleasure to sit in the living area where the walls soar to the peak of the chapel roof, resulting in a stunning visual treat and a calm and relaxing mood.

The spiral staircase leads to the mezzanine area where the splendid master bedroom suite is a peaceful sanctuary. You can lie in bed with a view through the great triangular entrance window. It is another of the wow factors in this remarkable home.

The ground floor contains a further two bedrooms and there is also an undeveloped area to the rear of the main zone. This provides a totally blank sheet for the next owners, and it would, perhaps, make a garden room to lead into the small garden and patio which is a perfect place for al fresco dining.

Godmanchester is a small historic town, with shops for everyday needs and good local schools. The owners love the choice of country walks and say that a favourite treat is to walk to Brampton Mill, a local pub and get a water taxi home. It is only a twenty-minute walk into bustling Huntingdon with its weekly market, and Riverside Park and annual fireworks and Picnic in the Park. There is a fast and frequent train service into Kings Cross and easy connection to the A14 and M11. You can enjoy the best of town and country from Font House.

The Old School House, as the name suggests, is just a stone’s throw from the outstanding Ofsted rated Barnabas Oley primary school and is a 17th century house with a Victorian addition to create a unique, four bedroom family home.

As you enter through the gate you are greeted by a generous wrap around fully enclosed garden with an array of hedged borders, shrubs and flowers and a lovely patio area for entertaining and al fresco dining.

Sellers Insight

The Old School House is an English country home, in the centre of the sought after village of Great Gransden. It was love at first sight for the present owners, who were living in East London and wanted to bring their family up in a spacious home in a rural, and community minded village. The Old School House ticked all their boxes.

The original cottage started life in the late seventeenth century as the schoolmaster’s house and had a Victorian extension. Today, it is a spacious, characterful home, with all the comforts of twenty first century living. It is a home where you can relax and unwind but will also serve as a sophisticated venue for more formal entertaining.

With the warm, inviting ambience that fills the home, The Old School House is very people orientated, and the family particularly enjoy relaxing in the living room, with its cosy log burner and the huge Victorian window that floods the room with natural light. The large family kitchen is also a central and sociable hub for family meals and conversation, whilst the dining room has its original fireplace with baker’s oven.

The generous windows look onto pretty views to the garden that wraps itself around the house, and the low level windows in the master bedroom allow you to lie in bed and look onto the garden. It is a very positive way to start the day: whilst the landing window provides a tranquil and special place to sit and have some, alone, downtime. The owners love the office that looks onto the small village school next door, where they can watch the swallows that nest in the school bell tower; and from the front bedrooms you have a view across the fields to the local Waresley and Gransden Woods.

The private garden is an outside green and colourful family summer room, where you can settle under the shade of an apple tree, admire the spring cherry blossom, harvest the vegetables, and have an outside film night with warmth provided by the fire pit. There is also a secret gate to the primary school swimming pool that has been much appreciated. The Old School House is a hidden personal oasis in the centre of the village.

Great Gransden provided everything the family hoped for, the children have a freedom to play in the village park, there are beautiful walks in the local bluebell woods and the village has an active community life, culminating in the annual Agricultural Show. St Neots, Cambridge and Gamlingay are nearby local towns and St Neots station is eighteen minutes away, with a frequent fast train service into London.

The owners will miss the tranquillity of the house and village, the many dog walks but take away many very happy memories of their nine amazing years in The Old School House.

Seller Insight

Located in a quiet no-through road in the Cambridgeshire village of Brampton, 8 St Georges Close is one of a small group of executive homes built in 1999. Brick and render with a grand entrance, this excellent family home has a modern yet traditional feel and plenty of character. ‘We bought the house 12-years ago this summer and have done lots to improve it, including knocking rooms through to give more space and light, fitting new bathrooms and a kitchen, adding a conservatory and log burner and undertaking a garage conversion to create a home office and gym. The house feels light and airy yet very cosy, but overall it feels homely. The edge of village location is great, with the Close itself being extremely safe for children. We originally bought the house for the commutability to London and the lovely village feel – it’s a friendly community with shops, pubs and river walks close by. It ticked all the boxes for family and work life and gave us the perfect feeling of modern country living – what more can we say, it’s a really lovely house in a fantastic location!

‘There are good local state and independent schools, with the village primary being a safe walking distance – our children cycle to school, primary and secondary. The area is great for outdoor activities for all ages and there are lots of beautiful walks on the doorstep. My husband still commutes to London; approximately a one-hour journey from Huntingdon – a walkable distance from the house – to King’s Cross. There are also handy Thames Link and Gatwick services.’

‘The house enjoys a sunny south-facing enclosed garden, perfect for relaxing in the sun – both inside and out are great for entertaining. It’s a very versatile and adaptable low-maintenance home with good private and on-street parking.’

‘The layout and flow are excellent throughout. We especially love the lounge with the conservatory attached and views across the garden – It has a cosy log burner which makes it a lovely space to enjoy as a family.’

‘We like that it’s quiet and convenient; you can easily step out and enjoy the surrounding countryside or be in Huntingdon in minutes. We are hoping to recreate the same feel this lovely home gives in a new location a bit deeper into the countryside.’

The property also benefits from solar panels and a ground sourced heat recovery system which makes this home very energy efficient.

Seller Insight

“We loved the look of the house when we first came to view it just over 19 years ago and I immediately knew that I wanted to live there. It was quite deceptive from the outside as we opened the door and realised just how large it actually was which was a very pleasant surprise,” say the owner.

“We’ve run the property as a bed and breakfast business over the years and have made some changes to accommodate that which included the addition of two extra bathrooms which has worked very well. We also built a double garage which has provided extra storage space for us but perhaps one of the best changes has been the addition of air conditioning to our bedroom which is ideal in the summer as it provides a cool retreat at the end of a hot day.”

“The location is fabulous. There are no neighbours nearby but we’ve never felt isolated as everything we need is easily accessible, including shops and a great range of restaurants. It’s ideal for golf enthusiasts as we live next to the golf club and we also enjoy taking our dog Buster for long walks in the countryside.”

“The large garden is south west facing and enjoys the sun throughout the day and into the evening. The countryside views are stunning all year round and the farmer keeps it looking at its best. There’s always some interesting wildlife to see, including squirrels, red kites, and pheasants, as well as a huge variety of birds who live in the hedges. The garden is fully enclosed, so it’s perfect for animals and children, and it’s a great spot for relaxing and entertaining on the decking and BBQ area. Shire Lodge is a real party house as there’s plenty of room for guests to mingle outside and the indoor bar opens out to the hall and dining room which is great when we’re entertaining friends and family.”

“It’s hard to choose just one favourite room as we like them all. The lounge is a cosy space to relax in a comfortable chair and our bedroom is absolutely huge with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. It’s so peaceful with nothing but the sound of birdsong to break the silence,” conclude the owners.

High Street, Chatteris, PE16

North Bank House is a beautiful five bedroom Grade II listed family home located in the heart of the well served market town of Chatteris and is approximately twelve miles west of the cathedral city of Ely. Set in a plot of approximately 0.2 of an acre this spacious family home is close to local amenities and offers bright and characterful accommodation throughout.

Arranged over three floors, this striking Georgian property offers a wealth of period features including shutter boards, sash windows, high ceilings with cornicing and fireplaces. The ground floor has a formal living room, formal dining room and a study as well as a modern kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga.

On the first floor landing there is an oriel window, the principal bedroom, family bathroom and separate WC and two double bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms. A further two double bedrooms are on the second floor.

Outside there is a pretty gated courtyard area accessed from the dining room. The gravelled driveway leads to ample off road parking, a double garage and garden store room, a small single storey barn and the generous secluded walled rear garden with mature trees, shrubs and borders and a summer house.

Seller Insight

Located in the centre of the Cambridgeshire town of Chatteris, a market town situated in The Fens between Huntingdon, March and Ely, this Georgian townhouse arranged over three floors is one of the town’s oldest properties. Dating back to circa 1750 it sits on the High Street and benefits from private drive access, a double garage, a small barn, plenty of parking, a secluded walled garden with summer house and a small suntrap courtyard. It is something of a rare find. ‘It was definitely the age and period character which attracted us – it was the first Bank in Chatteris. Size-wise, the house has given us the space we needed to bring up our four sons and entertain family and friends. Being in the centre of town has meant that everything is within walking distance, including excellent schools. The location has also meant commuting to work in Cambridge is feasible,’ says Liz.

The property is in excellent condition and has been well-maintained; ‘we’ve done plenty to ensure the property is kept up-to-date, including updating all three en suite bathrooms and the kitchen, which includes the installation of a five-oven AGA. We replaced all the top floor windows and refurbished the Georgian sash windows. The front roof has been completely replaced and chimneys repointed. The house has also been tastefully decorated throughout.’

‘The size of the property – even with a large family – offers space to be social or enjoy quiet time. There is a great sense of space throughout, and as an old property it is very well sound-proofed. The garden is separate from the house but is a very private and peaceful space ideal for unwinding.’

‘The house is semi-detached with a neighbour at the back of the house who we get on well with. There is a great sense of community in Chatteris and plenty of nice people to chat to on our daily dog walks. As part of a long-standing tradition, we annually put a Christmas tree in the Oriel window – on the second floor – which forms part of the town’s Christmas lights.’

‘North Bank House offers a warm welcome and is steeped in history and we feel very lucky to have had the chance to live here and look after it. It’s a truly unique property. This has been my most loved home and if I could move it to Northumberland, I would.’
