Sellers Insight

"We were friends of the previous owners, who had re-built the house around 12 years before we bought it," say the current owners of this wonderful home, full of character and charm, at 4 Croft Close. "We knew the house well and had always felt that it was a welcoming place, whether for gatherings of friends or as a family home. The original house was a cleverly designed family home not needing much adaptation, but we have tweaked some of the layout to suit our own family needs - our children have particularly enjoyed their individual study / bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms. The house has many large rooms and is so easily connected to the garden that it makes summer living particularly joyous."

"The garden surrounds the house," the owners continue, "which gives us the opportunity to enjoy the sun or shade at any time of the day, with choices for al fresco dining morning, noon and night. A large lawn for family games and fun contrasts with a secluded formal lawn and gently flowing rill and pools at the rear of the property. We love being able to open the French doors from the kitchen, extending the living space to include this formal garden."

The situation of the property has much to recommend it, too. "Croft Close is unusual because it is a quiet unadopted road which very few people know about," say the owners, "yet it is right in the centre of the village - just 2 minutes' walk from Brampton High Street's many shops including a wonderful butcher, Co-Op, chemist, Post Office, dentist, vet, hairdresser's and more besides. In a few more minutes you can reach Brampton primary school, the GP surgery and the Parish church. Hinchingbrooke secondary school, the railway station and the hospital are a short 10-minute bike ride away on the outskirts of Huntingdon. The connectivity to London and Cambridge is excellent, too."

"The sitting room is a particularly generous space with two sets of French doors with different views onto the garden, and a large wood burning stove that transforms it into a warm and cosy room in the winter months."

"All the rooms in the house are generously proportioned and have a great aspect - this will be something that we will miss with any new home we move to."

"With French doors opening out from the kitchen onto the more formal part of the garden, there is an easy flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. With the doors open in summer, we can hear the water trickling in the rill even from inside."

"Brampton is a thriving village community and this home is right in the heart of it. It has proven to be a fabulous family home with so many amenities and activities on the doorstep."
