Seller Insight “The house is very versatile, and we currently use the dining room as a play room for our children as we tend to spend most time in the dual aspect kitchen / breakfast room. The rooms are lovely and bright as they benefit from three sets of patio doors that lead out to the garden from the kitchen, playroom and lounge and we love to open them up on sunny days. We have added en suites to two of the large double bedrooms which have been really useful, as well as new windows, a new boiler and decorating throughout.” “We enjoy living here as it has a lovely community feel and everyone is very friendly. Abbots Ripton is a small village, yet it has everything we need for day to day living, including the nearby shop which stocks plenty of local items, such as free-range eggs, fruit, veg, fresh meat and cakes. The Abbot’s Elm is a very popular pub / restaurant and the village hall can be hired for private use. There’s always something going on throughout the year, such as Easter Egg Hunts, sporting events and the Classic Car and Village Fete.” “The fully enclosed main garden enjoys the sun throughout the day and it’s a very peaceful space to sit and relax on the large patio area. We’re not overlooked and have enjoyed some fun times in the hot tub, as well as camping in the side garden, otherwise known as the Secret Garden!” “The location is great as we enjoy easy access to the amenities of Huntingdon and Peterborough.” “We live in a lovely close with friendly neighbours and we will miss them.”
