Seller Insight

Manor Farm House is stunning building dating from the seventeenth century with some Victorian additions. It is also a spacious family home with an interior full of period charm and visual treats. All the original features combine seamlessly with the comforts of modern living. It is truly a rare and special property.

The house has always been a farm and in the current owner’s family since the nineteen fifties. When it became empty, the owners knew they wanted to own the home which had been such a privilege to have experienced. The house was somewhat dilapidated but with enormous care and a great deal of love it was restored and provides a superb lifestyle.

As you approach the attractive building its charm begins to weave its spell and once inside the ceiling beams, brick inglenook fireplaces, and Victorian pine panelling create an amazing wow factor. You can imagine an atmospheric candlelit supper in the dining room and feel transported back in time; or many Christmas celebrations when the house is festooned with festive greenery.

The owners use and enjoy the entire house, but they particularly appreciate the lounge with its inglenook and patio doors out to the garden. It is perfect for both family relaxation and more formal entertaining. The two remaining reception rooms ensure there is ample space for everyone to spend individual time.

The modern kitchen, complete with an Aga range, is the busy hub of the household and a place for chatty family meals. You can take your morning coffee outside into the courtyard which in a previous age served as the dairy yard.

With its six bedrooms the house lends itself to easy entertaining and the owners have memories of many large family parties in the house and garden. The private garden backs onto open countryside and is a place to sit and relish the rural peace of your surroundings.

Wistow is a pretty and sociable village, with an array of clubs and societies plus a village pub. You can enjoy the best of both country and town, as historic Cambridge and Peterborough are an easy drive away. There is a frequent and fast train service into London Kings Cross from nearby Huntingdon or St Neots station.

The owners have loved, and will greatly miss, being a part of the long history of Manor Farm House and are sure the next owners will come to love it in the same way
