Period riverside home near Newmarket set in idyllic grounds
Originally dating back to the 1600s, Island House is a unique period property which has been carefully extended and enlarged within the last 40 years,
The property, which has been within the same family ownership for at least 80 years, is now on the market with Jackson-Stops, with a guide price of £995,000.
Located in Fordham, on the Cambridgeshire side of Newmarket, the house and adjacent remains of the former mill occupy a central position amidst mature gardens and grounds transected by both the River Snail and mill race.
The accommodation, in brief, comprises three well-proportioned reception rooms, study, large kitchen and a laundry/utility room. Off the large first floor landing is a master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite bathroom, three further bedrooms, one with en-suite, and a family bathroom.
Many of the rooms enjoy views of the gardens and river.
Outside, Island House has a large driveway with parking for several vehicles and a garage/outbuilding. A bridge leads to the gardens and grounds, which, with a large paved terrace, footbridges and water wheel, provide an idyllic setting for enjoyment and entertaining.
