Seller Insight

The present owners were living in rented property at a time when the market was fluctuating and property prices were predicted to drop. They were waiting for this to happen, but they saw The Coppice, and all good intentions vanished. They fell in love with the superb, thatched family home and its excellent location in sought after Abbots Ripton. They couldn't bear to take the chance of losing the house and have spent a very happy fourteen years in the property.

The Coppice has a charming kerbside appeal and inside, a warm and welcoming ambience. It is a spacious and well insulated home. The owners chose to lay luxury Amtico flooring, install a gas wood burner, and added a large, light filled garden room, the orangery.

The orangery is the impressive and hospitable hub of the home. With underfloor heating it is an all year welcoming sanctuary, where the generous windows drench the room in natural light, creating a sense of actually being in the garden. It is a real 'inside, outside room,' and one which is used daily and appreciated by the family.

There is also the choice of the lounge where the gas burner fire makes an inviting winter retreat, or the TV room off the kitchen; whilst the family room has been perfect for the children to have as their own space. The house is a collection of inviting and comfortable spaces and is at its best when full of people.

The private, landscaped and easily maintained garden circles the house and you can follow the sun through the day. A previous owner planted a coppice at the end of the garden which attracts bird and wild life but is also a delightful zone for simply savouring the peaceful surroundings.

The Coppice is ideally placed in community minded and pretty Abbots Ripton an estate village with a number of attractive thatched homes. The various clubs are centred around the church and village hall, and It is only three miles into historic Huntingdon where you have comprehensive shops, cinemas and a station with an excellent service into London Kings Cross. The owners say that a big plus is, if you are away from home for stretches of time you know that Home Farm Close with its three houses is very secure.

The owners are relocating but will sorely miss their home and village life. They take away many very happy memories.
