Homes to host your Christmas gatherings

Christmas is almost here, and as we count down the days to unwrapping our presents and enjoying a sumptuous festive feast with family and friends, we have found five homes perfect for hosting over the holidays…

West Street – King’s Cliffe

With a large kitchen diner that opens out into a garden room, this five bedroom house has the perfect space to socialise with loved ones whilst prepping the food. For those feeling ultra brave, why not pop a fire pit out on the patio next to the garden room to allow guests to feel warm and cosy around the glow of the fire. There’s also five bedrooms and a beautiful wood burning stove setting in the living room. For the chefs amongst you, the kitchen is ideal for preparing your feast with an island, two ovens, a large fridge freezer and a walk in pantry! The owners describe the house as a great place for people to stay over as there is so much room, and we can certainly see why. Read more

The Old Bakehouse – Yaxley

An open play layout really is ideal for Christmas entertaining, and this wonderful home is another great example. The owners have transformed the kitchen breakfast room by adding an impressive contemporary extension on the side; now a vast, light, open plan space, it has plenty of room for dining and relaxing, and bi-folding doors onto the terrace at one end. Plus there are four bedrooms and a cosy log fire – who doesn’t love a real fire at Christmas time?!

Grange Court – Carlby

Keeping on the open plan theme, this beautifully converted four-bedroom barn has a kitchen which is bespoke handmade with all Neff appliances, a boiling water tap and a Miele dishwasher – plus a second kitchen which is very handy if you have a lot of vegetables and meat to prepare and cook. There are plenty of opportunities to cosy up too, whether it is sitting around one of two ClearView log-burners or watching your favourite festive film in one of the reception rooms which doubles up as a home cinema. Read more

Mill House – Fleet

You can enjoy your Christmas lunch around one side of the fire, and canapés and nibbles the other side at this exquisite Georgian house. The huge kitchen is equally as impressive which stretches across the width of the rear section. It’s been fitted with a luxury Tom Howley of Cambridge bespoke kitchen with solid Silestone Quartz worktops and three top of the range Miele ovens incorporating one steam oven and two full size ovens. In addition to a Miele induction hob in the island with a Westin Stratus extractor fan above, there is plenty of space to prepare and cook. There is also a Fisher & Paykel fridge drawer in the kitchen with a further fridge freezer in the utility for storing ingredients, and a specialist brand mQuvee wine cave with space for 45 wine bottles and dual temperature.

The Birches – Marholm

Having been spectacularly extended to create a substantial family home over two floors, this home now comprises a spacious open plan kitchen/dining/family room ideal for entertaining at Christmas. The owners claim this is the hub of the home, and will be the focal point for families as it provides plenty of counter and cupboard space, alongside an island with a sink, as well as a wealth of room for tables and social sofas. A set of hanging lights are a wonderfully inviting detail, while the see through fireplace is a fantastic unique feature, offering a peek into the neighbouring living room, itself spacious to accommodate an entertainment and cinema room. With six bedrooms and five bathrooms too, there’s also ample space for guests to stay. Read more
