Seller Insight

Located around four miles north or St Neots and a similar distance south-west of Huntingdon, the beautiful Cambridgeshire village of Buckden is well positioned for those wanting a slice of rural life alongside good access to vibrant towns and cities and a broad range of excellent facilities. Here you’ll find 5 The Grove, a spacious and modern detached family home built to a high-specification which sits in a generous plot within a private road. Current owners Trevor and Angela have lived here with their family since 2002, in which time they’ve undertaken extensive improvements and expansion; ‘originally built by a local independent builder, we were attracted to the individual style of the house along with the peaceful location. We’ve increased the size of the property substantially, including converting the loft to create a five bedroomed house, building a large utility room, adding a second office and extending the kitchen with an integrated conservatory and fitting a fabulous John Lewis kitchen,’ says Angela.

With Cambridge around 45 minutes by car and excellent road and rail links to London and the North, this is a fantastic location for commuters. With Grafham Water within walking distance it’s also a prime spot for those who love nature. The area is well-served by schools, with Buckden Church of England Primary School rated ‘Excellent’ by Ofsted and local comprehensive Hinchingbrooke School rated as ‘Good’. There are notable independent schools in Bedford, Cambridge and Kimbolton.

‘It’s a very special house and is equally wonderful in both summer and winter. In the summer we enjoy the garden with its variety of seating areas and the summer house. In the winter it’s lovely to cosy up by the wood burner in the lounge and entertain in the formal dining room.’   

‘The kitchen – the hub of the house – is our favourite room as it’s excellent for socialising and eating as a family. The lounge area in the garden is perfect for summer barbecues and entertaining.’

‘The historic village location is quiet and peaceful. We have excellent views across to the village church tower and it’s just a short walk to open countryside. The village has an good selection of local shops and pubs, including 18th century coaching Inn The George and an award-winning butchers.’   

‘We’ve held many special family events and parties at this wonderful house, including an engagement party, two weddings and a 25th wedding anniversary – it’s been a much-loved family home.’   

We’ll miss living in this very friendly close of five unique detached homes with great neighbours. It’s the perfect home for both family time and entertaining.’
