Seller Insight

Porch House is a stunning early seventeenth century home, which effortlessly combines the immense charm of its original features, with the sophistication of the twenty first century. The present owners Paolo and Emma immediately fell in love with the picturesque building, its generous inviting rooms and large garden.

“The house enjoys a superb position in the community-minded Offord Cluny village,” they say. “The peaceful rural position, with country views to the front and rear of the house, provide a perfectly relaxed base for the busy commuter. There are main line stations at nearby St Neots and Huntingdon, with a frequent and fast service into Kings Cross, and the A14 is easily accessed.”

“There is a good village primary school, with excellent secondary schools in Huntingdon, and the independent Kimbolton School is less than ten miles away. The area offers a wide range of leisure pursuits. Vibrant and historic Cambridge provides retail therapy and cultural opportunities; whilst Peterborough and Stamford are pleasing alternatives. Grafham Water, approximately five miles away, has water sports, rambles, cycle ways and fishing.”

“We have strong Italian and French links, so comfort and hospitality are very important qualities in our home,” explain Paolo and Emma. “Meals are happy occasions and the well-equipped kitchen, with its double Aga, is perfect for cooking. The exposed beams and open fire in the dining room create the perfect venue for both chatty family meals and formal entertaining.”

“Whether relaxing in the delightful drawing room or in the family snug, you can relish the calm atmosphere of the house. And on a winter’s evening, there is no better place to be than settled before the glowing wood burner in the drawing room, with the firelight flickering across the beams. The house welcomes the festive season when adorned with greenery and seasonal decorations, it is truly beautiful,” they say.

“The skills of the house builders are seen in the celebration of beams in the bedrooms. The vaulted ceiling of the master bedroom gives a wow factor to the room, and our visitors are always captivated by the surroundings.”

“In the garden, the lawn stretches down to a stable block, pony paddock and pond. It is a pure pleasure to stand at the kitchen window, with a view through the arch of plum trees, right down to the pond. It is our own serene oasis.”

“It will be hard for us to leave the house; we will miss everything about it. We have loved being part of its long story and take away many happy memories.”
