A delightful six bedroom late-Victorian home, that is currently being used as a B&B, presenting an excellent opportunity. Sitting on a total plot of approximately half an acre, Bramble Corner offers a dining room with open fireplace, family room, drawing room with brick-built fireplace, conservatory, ground floor bedroom/family room, shower room, study, a large re-fitted kitchen breakfast room, and a utility room. Upstairs, boasts five bedrooms, four with en suite. Outside, is a rear south-facing garden with a separate quarter acre orchard.

A well-served sought-after village, Bluntisham offers a village hall, doctors surgery, public house, cricket club, village shop, outdoor gym and park, garage, caf, gym, hairdressers, Church and St Helens primary school. Cambridge is a 40 minute drive away. Huntingdon is about 20 minutes away, offering rail services into London Kings Cross from 40 minutes, whilst the market town of St Ives is about 10 minutes away, offering further amenities.

This large attractive period home occupies a superb location, within the sought after village of Bluntisham. The property originally dates back to c1880, making it one of the oldest dwellings in the village; however, over time it has been extended and in more recent years it has been beautifully modernised by the current owners. We were previously living in a very nice house in St Ives, says Martin, but when the children had flown the nest, we had a bit of spare room and so we decided to try our hand at running a B&B business. To our delight, it went very well and we really enjoyed it, so we decided we might like to do it on a bigger scale. We were considering a move to a larger property, when we quite literally happened upon Bramble Corner. It had a For Sale board up outside, so we stopped the car, had a quick look, and despite it being in a terrible state, my wife took one look at the overgrown garden and said we have to have it.

Initially, we spent around six months with paint brushes in our hands bringing it up to scratch, and just four years ago we carried out a big refurbishment, so its all looking really beautiful and is in tip-top condition. All of the bedrooms now have en-suites and Id describe the style as a modern take on traditional, so its still very much a period home. Since purchasing the house, weve run it as a thriving B&B business, but given the sheer amount of space, it would also be a really lovely family home.

The garden is also very large and it incorporates a Victoria plum orchard, which provides us with loads of fruit, continues Martin. All credit for how lovely the space looks must go to my wife; shes done a super job. She has planted to create colour and interest all year round, so summer or winter theres always something to attractive to look at. Its a very peaceful garden, extremely private and a lovely place for both relaxing and entertaining.

The kitchen was refurbished just last year, and so Id say that thats our favourite part of the house; it has a real wow factor, says Martin. It has contemporary country-style units, feature lighting, and we left one of the original brick walls exposed, which is a lovely feature.

Bluntisham is a very friendly place to live, says Martin. When Im out walking everyone says hello, which is rare these days. Its a very active village, so theres always something to get involved in, and the local transport links are good so its easy to travel further afield. Weve been very happy here.

The house is already very big, but a few years back I obtained planning permission to extend the ground floor, says Martin, so theres definitely scope to enhance the property further.

This is such a warm and friendly house that has enabled us to run a thriving business, says Martin, but we feel that the time is right to fully retire. Weve loved every minute of our time here, so it will be upsetting to leave, but we hope to find a new house within this wonderful village.
