Seller Insight

"Homelea is a unique period property that has been part of the village for many years. Originally a working farmhouse with land and outbuildings, Homelea is unusual as we are situated on a large plot in the heart of the village, yet we also have a lot of surrounding space. We have previously kept horses in the fields which is now home to sheep and donkeys," say the current owners.

"It's quiet here, yet we've never felt isolated as everything we need is easily accessible. It's just a short drive to the A14 and A1 from where we can be in the centre of Cambridge in around 30 minutes and it's just as quick to pop to the shopping and leisure facilities at nearby Rushden Lakes. It's just 45 minutes into London on the train from Huntingdon and we've travelled to Paris in around 4 hours or so. Alconbury and Alconbury Weston share a number of amenities and it's a lovely walk along the path through farmland which links the two villages. Both villages have a pub, and we share the village hall and a well-equipped village shop, as well as clubs and sporting facilities. It's a very friendly community here and we know everyone up and down our street."

"We've lived here for 30 years and have converted the outbuildings into what we call The Barns. We use one as a working barn which provides storage for our tractor, and another as a gym and entertaining area. Homelea is ideal for entertaining as we have plenty of parking available as well as space for a marquee on the lawn. The Barns makes for a fabulous Halloween party area!"

"It's very private here and we're not overlooked at all. The large garden is surrounded by the original wall which must be around 300 years old. It's a bit of a sun trap and it's great to come home from work, head outside and relax with a cold beer or glass of wine. We've enjoyed many family BBQs in the garden and it's fully enclosed, so it's perfect for children."

"The lounge is our favourite room to spend time in. It has original beams and exposed brick, so it's very characterful. It's large enough to accommodate the whole family and it's cosy and warm when we fire up the log burner. The original Rayburn still works and it's handy to pop on in between seasons as it heats the whole room and we even bake cakes on it too."
