GALLERY: Man selling his ‘dream’ self-built Whittlesey home for more than �500k

A MAN who built his own dream home is looking to sell the house for �595,000 as he looks to make a fresh start - less than one mile away.

Carl Boyden, a property developer and used-car dealer, is looking to sell his self-built five-bedroom house in Whittlesey’s Manor View.

The luxurious house includes a games room, gym, three en-suite shower rooms and gold-plated chandelliers. He’s lived in the property with his two children since 1999.

Mr Boyden said: “This house was the realisation of a dream because I’d always wanted to design my own house.

“It’s a bespoke property full of high quality fixtures and furnishings. It’s in a really luxurious area and it would be perfect for a solicitor or a doctor to move in with their family.

Mr Boyden will move into a new property in the town’s Station Road with his partner of six years Tami Lock in September.

Ms Lock said: “Carl’s house is a beautiful property full of quality and individuality and it offers so much.

“It’s extremely close to Whittlesey town centre which is growing and is ideally situated between the other Fen towns and Peterborough.

“The Manor as a cul-de-sac gives great privacy but also offers a wonderful little community to live in too.”

Mr Boyden also said: “The house in Station Road will be mine and Tami’s house - it’ll be our home.

“We bought it together, renovated it together and it’ll be a fresh start for us both. I’m leaving an amazing house behind but I’m excited about the future because our new house is equally stunning.”

?• The house is on the market with Grays estate agents. For more information contact 01733 203203.
