Sellers Insight

Rurally located in the pretty Cambridgeshire village of Brington, Hare Cottage sits in an enclave of 16 homes designed and built five years ago by quality developers Campbell Buchanan. Although a modern home, its characterful thatched roof and simple country style interior give it a clever period property feel. Conveniently located close to the A14, without being so close that noise is a problem, access to Cambridge, Peterborough and the A1 is easy whilst the delightful towns of Oundle and Kimbolton are just a short drive away.

"Location is everything with this house; the quiet rurality and countryside views mixed with easy to access amenities and road networks offers the perfect mix. The layout of The Green is such that each house faces inwards which creates a wonderful sense of community – it's a very social place to live and all the neighbours are exceptionally nice and helpful. The house is light and airy, and the enclosed south-facing garden is easy to maintain. There's immediate access to a range of fantastic walks right on the doorstep, and the wildlife is great,' say owners Michael and Pauline.

The village hosts Brington CofE Primary School, which incorporates a village hall hosting a range of activities, there's also a new community space in All Saints' Church. Kimbolton is only an eight-minute drive away where you'll find an excellent range of high-street shops, medical centre, pharmacy and Kimbolton School. Huntingdon and St Neots are also easy to reach.

'The house is wonderfully bright with good views from all its windows – It's warm in winter and cool in summer. The garden has a lovely view over The Green – its south-facing position means it gets the sun all day and into the evening.'

'It's a very comfortable house, the lounge especially so. The décor in this room is very soothing and it has a double aspect – the view through the double patio doors is fantastic, and if you're lucky you can see Red Kites in flight without moving from the sofa!'

'The Green and its tennis court are a great facility and the adjacent play area is a frequent place to meet with and talk to neighbours. It's a very peaceful place to live and the quality of life is good.

'We will really miss he house itself, the excellent location, beautiful views and our lovely neighbours.'
