Vendor Interview

Wilburton is a small village just a few miles from Ely and here on its own, private, large acreage stands these two, independent, properties. Adjacent to historic Fenland landscape but with far reaching views to Ely.

It was nearly thirty years ago that the owners purchased this land, on which stood a small property which they named as 'the house that Jack built'. This was demolished and they designed and constructed a sizeable bungalow, then later a second bungalow was built to enable an elderly relative to move closer to them, and to enjoy total independent living. Further down the line they added a second floor to the first bungalow, and which is now a sizeable family home.

The flexible layout of this brilliant home, teamed with practicality and luxury, provides lots of individual spaces to pursue family interests and hobbies. There is an overall impression of airiness with a natural sociable flow. When the wide connecting doors between rooms are open wide, the large space becomes ideal for large gatherings. The smaller bungalow, also cleverly designed, has its own separate private entrance, presenting endless opportunities. (Including Attic roof trusses with laid floor for future development, subject to planning)

After living here happily for so long, it is time for the owners to move to a smaller dwelling. They will be very sad to say farewell to what has been a brilliant family home and wish its new owners much happiness.

Local towns are close by for a full range of amenities, together with sport and leisure activities. There is an excellent choice of schools available and the renowned Kings School at Ely is conveniently close. Cambridge is also nearby, and a wonderful city in which to wander and marvel at its architecture, enjoy its culture or dine at any of its many restaurants.

There is ample parking and often family and friends bring along their Tents and Caravans to enjoy large family BBQs and other celebrations, often up to one hundred guests. The large grounds are perfect for family games. Understandably, the house with its vast amount of internal and external space is a favourite for all generations of this family.
