We can boost our income by letting the property
When Daniel and Pippa Jacobs decided to move to France, they wanted to keep a foothold back in England. Their solution was to buy a luxury three-bedroom Norwegian Log holiday cabin at Abbotsley Country Homes in Cambridgeshire.
“We wanted to be close to family and friends when we came home. We have an interest in a family business in Hitchin, and being so close to the A1 and to both Luton and Stansted airports makes Abbotsley the perfect location for us,” says Pippa.
Daniel did months of research on log homes before deciding on Abbotsley. “It was the quality of the build that impressed us. There’s nothing else on the market with the standard of finish of the Norwegian Log homes at Abbotsley – real value for money!” says Daniel. “The clincher was when existing owners told us how happy they are here, with the easy lifestyle and the great community.”
Daniel came to the UK from South Africa, and still loves big, open spaces. “Here at Abbotsley we’re surrounded by fields, farmland and golf courses. It’s very peaceful, yet also close to town with convenient shops, pubs and restaurants,” he says. As boating enthusiasts, the Jacobs are also delighted to be close to three marinas in and around St Neots, offering ample moorings and easy access to the River Great Ouse.
“Abbotsley ticks all the boxes for us,” concludes Daniel, “We don’t have to worry about maintaining our lovely gardens because everything’s done for you, giving us even more time to spend on the boat. And we can boost our income by letting the property while we’re away.”
