Sellers Insight

Located just two miles south of St Ives in the Cambridgeshire village of Fenstanton, this extended and fully renovated family home with original parts dating back to the 17th century offers great character and comfort. With its main rooms facing south, and wrap-around gardens facing to the south and west, both inside and out benefit from a wonderful amount of light.

'The house, located at the 'old' end of the village, has a great amount of charm as you step in through the gate you feel as though you've entered your own little world. The whole place has a great sense of open-ness and is flooded with light. The house perfectly facilitates working from home, socialising and relaxing whilst the garden, which is completely private, has a good variety of areas, each delightful. We are blessed with fantastic neighbours who are always there to lend a hand, be it feeding pets, or helping paint the house!' Fenstanton is a vibrant village with a real community feel with a good primary school and an excellent selection of shops. The surrounding countryside is stunning with gorgeous walks nearby along the River Great Ouse. The location is both idyllic and convenient.'

'The house is light, airy, spacious and very welcoming. We spend a lot of time in the garden and now that most of the hard landscaping has been done it's relatively easy to maintain. It is well stocked with a large variety of interesting plants and shrubs; it has two vegetable beds and a lawn big enough for a game of badminton. It's very peaceful and totally private.'

'We have updated every single inch of the property to make a beautiful home and have recently replaced the garage with a new structure which combines garage with workshop with home office. The views from here across the garden and to the church tower are lovely.'

'Our favourite room has to be the kitchen; the comfy chair where the cook's company can sit and chat while dinner is being made makes it very social. The living room is a special place with its big picture window looking out onto the garden.'

'We'll miss being truly in the country yet having easy access to so many great towns and cities – you can be walking the dog in open-country one minute and hopping on a train to London the next.'
