6 River Meadow is a light and spacious detached family house over two floors.

Of brick elevations beneath a tiled roof, the property has a pleasing open plan layout downstairs as the reception hall, drawing room and sitting/garden area all interconnect. There are French doors to the garden from both the sitting area and the drawing room which has a stone fireplace with a gas living flame fire, oak flooring, and double doors to the hall. There is also a study and cloakroom which are accessed from the hall together with the kitchen/dining room. The drawing room, sitting room, kitchen and diner all have views over the garden to the river and meadows beyond.

The kitchen is fitted with a quality range of handle-less base and wall units comprising cupboards and drawers with slate style worktops and up-stands. Here there are bi-fold doors to the garden, an inset sink unit with mixer taps and fitted appliances include an AEG double oven, Zanussi hob with extractor fan, dishwasher and fridge freezer. From here there is access to the utility/boot room with additional storage, sink unit, plumbing for washing machine and space for a tumble dryer and part glazed back door. Beyond is the ground floor fifth bedroom with an en suite wet room providing annexe potential if required.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms from the galleried landing (one en suite) and a family bathroom. Phase 1 of the extension was planned to convert the en-suite bedroom into a dressing room which would then provide access to a new, large master bedroom above the utility/boot room, music room and wet room.

Phase 2 of the planning would allow for the addition of a wide rear extension providing considerable extra reception space.
Phase 3 was for the addition of another first floor bedroom over the study/cloaks. A pdf with the elevations and extended floor plans is available from the vendor's agents.

Outside
The property is situated on a private road, has shingle parking leading to a double garage with loft space and workshop. The rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees, shrubs and flower beds. The gardens lead down to the river with a generous mooring dock and there is an additional 65ft of quay headed river frontage with a slipway giving open access on to the river Great Ouse.

Planning
Planning permission has been granted (Ref: 16/02534/HHFUL) to extend the house to create an additional 1,762 sq ft and alter the front elevations (which could be carried out in 3 separate phases if more convenient).

The site (in total) extends to 0.54 acre.

Notes
Please note that the A14 is currently undergoing major improvements which will considerably enhance journey times between Cambridge and villages to the North West. The new road, due to be completed in 2020, takes a different route at Fenstanton and a new local road will be available to take traffic from Huntingdon to Cambridge.
