Seller Insight “To find a property with the land that we needed in a village location was like looking for a needle in a haystack, so we were thrilled to find just that, right here at Homelea. We needed paddocks for our horses, as well as a home to suit our family, and it is very rare to come across this combination in such a lovely setting,” say the owners. “We have an excellent shop here in the village, along with a friendly pub which does the most amazing Sunday lunch which is a definite must! The GP surgery in Alconbury is the best we have ever come across and the village shop has a chemist attached, so it’s easy to pick up prescriptions. The busy village hall and football club are at the heart of the community and we have some wonderful dog walks and bridleways for horse riding, as well as a fabulous cross-country course available for hire in our neighbouring village of Alconbury.” “The walled garden next to the house is perfect for relaxing and entertaining. There’s always a sunny spot to sit in or shady places to escape to when in need of respite from the heat. It’s a great space for families and we’ve enjoyed many hours together in the hot tub and numerous BBQs by the pond area where there is a family of moorhens who live on the water. We can just shut the front gates and relax in our own little oasis of privacy.” “There’s something here for everyone. Our children are always in the barn which has a gym and pool table, whilst the other barn has been utilised as a Man Cave and storage but last Christmas it was festively transformed for my charity wreath making event, so it’s very adaptable. The bright and welcoming kitchen is a lovely room with a big central island where we all gather to chat about our day and catch up with friends before we head into the lounge area which is the oldest part of the house. It’s bursting with character thanks to the old beams and log burner. Our bedroom at the rear of the property is dual aspect making it lovely and light in the mornings and we chose it as the beautiful window looks straight down to the paddocks where our horses graze and I’ll greatly miss this view when we leave Homelea.” Village information Alconbury and Alconbury Weston are sought-after villages lying to the north west of Huntingdon.
