When incredible furnishings meet stunning interiors, the results can be quite impressive, as River House clearly demonstrates.
Sometimes, when discussing properties like the River House, it’s hard to know where to start. Perhaps this is the best location on the banks of the River Ouse (with frontage)? Or a facade covered with wisteria? Why not a Mediterranean-style garden room with vines and green shutters?
Most importantly, the property is a rare opportunity to own a beautiful home on the main street of the popular community of Hemingford Grey.
Launched on the market through Fine & Country at an estimated price of £2 million, River House has a massive appeal. It’s hard not to fall in love with this property.
Inside, elegant and traditional interiors offer eight bedrooms and plenty of entertainment space across three floors.
The premises on the ground floor consist of a bright reception area from which you can access the dining room and liquor store on one side, as well as the living room and room with a magical garden on the other.
At the back of the house you will find a welcoming kitchen/breakfast room with adjoining utility room, as well as a large studio room with direct access to the garden and great potential.
Eight bedrooms are located on the first and second floors, making this home ideal for large families or those who enjoy hosting and entertaining.
Outside, the gardens have plenty of mature trees, as well as a wide lawn and well stocked borders. The summer house with thatched roof offers the possibility of further extension, and on the banks of the river there is an elegant boathouse and a place where you can admire the passing boats and wildlife.
Hemingford Gray along with the neighboring village of Hemingford Abbots are collectively known as “The Hemmingfords” and are incredibly popular areas to live in Cambridgeshire.
The village, located in a protected area on the banks of the river, has many river and walking paths. Both villages have many amenities, including popular pubs, a primary school, shops and sports clubs. There is an annual regatta between the two villages, as well as a biennial flower show.
Cambridge is about 15 miles to the south, while Huntingdon (six miles) and St Ives (two miles) offer an additional choice of shopping, dining and entertainment options.
River House is currently listed for sale through Fine & Country for an estimated £2 million – see more photos or ask the agent for more information.
With wood paneling and armor in the lobby, the Home Counties Mansion is one of the gems on offer.
