"We were looking for a property in a rural location but still within easy reach of Cambridge city centre and when we first viewed Orchard Barn, it's fair to say that we were blown away! The location was perfect, and we immediately fell in love with the bright, modern new build house," recall the current owners.
"We've lived here for 4 years and, as everything was brand new, the biggest changes have taken place outside. We enjoy spending time outdoors and it was important to us to have somewhere that was an extension of our living space. We hired a specialist designer to create a bespoke garden and garden room for us that we have really enjoyed and made full use of. The garden room is currently set up as a gym with air conditioning and heating, but it could just as easily be used as an entertaining area or home office."
"We have two dogs and we are spoilt for choice with numerous walks accessed straight from the house. We enjoy walking with our friends to Hot Numbers coffee shop which does a delicious all-day brunch, as well as hosting jazz events and live music. The renowned local pub, The Chequers, is just a short walk from the house where we can enjoy a nice dining experience or just sit outside with a glass of wine in the sun. Cambridge was everything we hoped it would be and more! We can leave the car at Foxton station and head in by train or it's just a 15-minute drive into the city centre where we have enjoyed the fabulous restaurants, exhibitions, cultural events and shopping."
"It's hard to choose just one favourite room. Our son can often be found in the gym and I tend to spend most of my time in the kitchen. The comfortable chairs by the window are the perfect spot to sit with a good book or enjoy a glass of wine with my husband in the evening. We also like to relax in the snug area where we can snuggle up on the sofa and watch tv."
"We've enjoyed living in a rural setting, yet we've never felt isolated as everything we need is easily accessible. We'll certainly miss this lifestyle, as well as the garden. It's such a sociable space where we've enjoyed relaxing on the new patio area and braais with our friends and family. The extensive planting is well thought out and I really do believe that we've done justice to the house by giving it the garden it deserves," conclude the current owners.
