2 Longstaff Way is a charming five-bedroom bespoke family residence, built to the owners' own design five years ago. It offers spacious living accommodation over two floors, with an enclosed rear garden and double garage. The ground floor has a large entrance hall, dual aspect living room, dining room, family room, study, cloakroom, and a kitchen breakfast room with walk-in pantry and separate utility room. The first floor boasts a master suite with dressing area and en suite, a guest bedroom with en suite, and three further double bedrooms with a family bathroom. To the front is a double garage and off-street parking for several cars. The rear garden is landscaped with a patio area, lawn and flower beds.

The village of Hartford sits on the North bank of the River Great Ouse, with a stunning marina, that has The Hartford Mill eat-in pub overlooking it, just a delightful 10-minute walk away past fields and the Hartford Lake. The village sits alongside the 34-acre Huntingdon Riverside Park, ending at the Church which sits beautifully on the river. Hartford also boasts a village hall, convenience store, Junior School, Ofsted 'Outstanding' Infant School, Hartford Cottage B&B, a 16th Century Pub Restaurant, and a further eat-in family-run pub. Huntingdon Garden Centre, with Restaurant, Coffee Shop and Farm Shop, is a 4-minute drive away. Huntingdon Rail Station is less than 2 miles away, offering trains into London Kings Cross from 48 minutes. Cambridge can be reached via the A14 in around 40 minutes, or alternatively the guided busway stops in Hartford itself taking around fifteen minutes into St Ives, or an hour into Cambridge.

Built to the owners' own design, this stunning family home at 2 Longstaff Way brings together a blend of traditional and modern features, all finished to the highest of standards. "This house is the result of the accumulation of knowledge and experience gained from the properties we have built before," say the owners, "taking the best from all we have learned, to create a family home which perfectly suited our needs and lifestyle." The property offers spacious living accommodation over two floors including five bedrooms, complete with an enclosed rear garden and double garage.

"We spend a lot of time in the garden," the owners continue, "into which we have also put a lot of love and care. Traditionally landscaped with grass and borders, with a productive vegetable patch alongside, the south facing garden enjoys a lot of sun. To the front of the house is an abundant apple tree which has provided fruit for many apple pies over the years!"

The location of the property also has much to offer in terms of access to amenities. "We can walk along the river from the house into town, which is a pleasant country walk," say the owners. We sometimes just sit by the river in nice weather, too. The three surrounding towns of Cambridge, Peterborough and Bedford are all equidistant from the property, each providing a different atmosphere and ensuring that there is always something going on and easy access to anything we might want or need. The annual Bedford regatta is always a fun event to attend, while the historic university city of Cambridge has beautiful architecture and extensive shopping alike."

"We like all of the rooms, having designed the house ourselves, but we spend much of our time in the kitchen. Family and friends tend to congregate there around the central island, so it is a very sociable space."

"The property is ideal for having family to visit, whether gathering in the kitchen, cuddling up in the TV room or relaxing in the lounge."
