Seller Insight

Tucked away in a very scenic rural location on the edge of the delightful village of Somersham is Little Orchard, a large and beautifully presented family home that has been greatly extended and beautifully refurbished by the current owners.

"We've been lucky enough to own Little Orchard for the past fourteen years, and I'd say that it was a combination of the building's potential, the total privacy that the site affords us and the peaceful surroundings that initially attracted us to it," says the owner. "However, when we first viewed the property it was nothing but an overgrown orchard featuring a small two-bedroom bungalow and outbuildings. Formerly known as 'Place of Plenty', the property was originally built in the 1920s and had definitely seen better days, but we could immediately see that with a bit of hard work and lots of imagination we would be able to breathe new life into it, and that's exactly what we've done."

"The first phase of the renovation was completed in 2011, with the second in 2017, and at every stage our home has been designed and built with incredible attention to detail. For example, the central entrance hall was designed to resemble a star and has lighting features that enable us to illuminate the inside of the 'star' using virtually any colour we wish – that's definitely one of our favourite features within our home. That attention to detail flows throughout the whole building, and therefore each room holds something unique, whether that be a shape, an oak furniture feature, a beautiful fireplace or something as unusual and discreet as the small mouse door that can be found in one of the skirting boards. The house has also been designed to accommodate different styles of living and family life; as you will see when you look around, it can easily be divided into separate living quarters for larger or growing families, as well as accommodate families that enjoying being together as much as we do."

"There's nothing we've relish more as a family than being together at home enjoying the simple pleasures, such as a relaxing in front of a roaring fire in the sitting room while watching the array of wildlife that enjoys our garden. It's also a fantastic place for entertaining, particularly during the summer months, with three patio areas, a large garden and even an outside toilet for guests!"

"The kitchen has always been the hub of our home, and it's where we spend most of our evenings together as a family. However, our cosy living room which features a log burner and faces out towards our spacious garden is a personal favourite, especially during the winter months."

"The property is situated in a convenient location, close to all local amenities and only nineteen miles from Cambridge city centre. We also benefit from having excellent transport links, including easy access to the guided bus."

"Both the house and garden are very conducive to entertaining and since moving here we've enjoyed many social events and family celebrations. We had a wonderful sweet sixteen for our daughter, 18th and 21st birthday parties, our wedding renewal was held here and we've enjoyed a number of surprise parties."

"Over the years we've transformed the property from its former rundown orchard site into a modern, luxurious family home were we've made many happy memories," says the owner. "It's been a wonderful home, but it's now time for a new family to fill it and enjoy it."
