6 Bed Detached House  For Sale  Willow Farm House 38 Hamerton Road  Alconbury Weston  Huntingdon  Cambridgeshire  PE28  - £725,000

For Sale
Built in circa 1820, the charming Willow Farm House is located in a prominent position at the heart of the popular village of Alconbury Weston. The property has recently undergone some cosmetic refreshment, and would make an ideal home for a growing family. Entering through the wrought-iron gated driveway, you are led to the double garage which offers an external staircase up to the studio/office above. The main house boasts a 'country-style' kitchen breakfast room with separate utility, dining room, drawing room, family room, sitting room, garden room, boot room, cloakroom and a ground floor shower room. The first floor offers six bedrooms with a family bathroom and an en-suite shower room to the master.

Since its construction in the late Georgian era, this spacious family home has only been occupied by three families, the third one being its present owners. It is, therefore, an obvious testament to how much this home has been loved and treasured throughout its history.

Its setting is in the heart of the conveniently located village of Alconbury Weston. The village is proud of its strong sense of community, and is one in which people take time to greet each other. The primary school has a high Ofsted rating, with schools for older children, together with independent schools such as Kimbolton and Oundle, within easy reach. Peterborough, Huntingdon and St Neots are very close for a wide range of amenities. Each of these locations also offer railway stations for quick journeys into London. Major motorways are also close, with the A14 presently being the subject of a major upgrade.

"We were searching for a conventional large family home, but were directed to view this house and, once we came inside, immediately fell in love with it and moved to live here in 1998. We have four children and the house was perfection for us. Plenty of bedrooms and lots of downstairs space enabled areas for privacy, especially for our family to pursue hobbies and interests in the room set aside for this purpose, but with other rooms for family life together. We have added our own touches and improvements throughout the years, all respecting the unique history of the house."

"The kitchen is a very special room for us. When we upgraded this room we created one with a farmhouse style and, as this area leads into the conservatory, it is a great sociable space for everyone, whether family or friends. In addition, the main family reception room is a special area for family gatherings, particularly at Christmas when everyone is around."

"We have a large, functional, garden, with a patio surrounding the house. We have several places on which to relax and there is always somewhere to catch sunshine, or shade, throughout the day."

"Our main reception room is spacious and sunny and a wonderful family room. It is brilliant in the wintertime when the fire is aglow in the inglenook fireplace and the room takes on a special warm ambience."

"As with the other families who have lived in this lovely home, we have made the decision to move now that the family has flown the nest and the house has outgrown our requirements. It is now time for the next family to live and love living here as much as we have done so."
