The tiny island is home to otters and there are seals in the river, as well as a marina a short distance from the home

The property, which is on the market for £850,000, has a large kitchen/breakfast room, lounge, dining room, study, sun room, utility, five bedrooms and three bathrooms. Pictured: The property’s lounge

Outside there is a pool room with a swimming pool and jacuzzi, garage and shower/changing room area.

The garden slopes down to the banks of the river with a decked area and summer house.

The property also has two barns that have been used as an experimental space for some well-known artists, including Miss Van who featured in the Banksy movie Exit Through The Gift Shop and her art is still on the walls of the property.

Mark Peck, from estate agents Cheffins, said: ‘It’s one of those houses I would say don’t judge a book by its cover.

‘When you look at it from the front it’s not the best looking house but once you get inside the house is stunning and has wow factors everywhere.

‘The garden, as you walk down towards the river, is just incredible and looks out onto this little private island.

The home has five bedrooms and also has wooden floors in some of the rooms, such as the one above

There are also three bathrooms in the property, which would be ideal for a family who enjoy their privacy and the chance to have a long shower without interruption

Mr Peck said there is also potential for redevelopment of the property, making it an ideal purchase for families who might want to put their own stamp on the home

The spacious kitchen boasts plenty of room for crockery and also features hooks on which to hang tea and coffee mugs

The home’s bedrooms are spacious and more than big enough to host a double bed, meaning that no members of the family will feel left out

The property is set in the Cambridgeshire countryside, away from the hustle and bustle of a big city. Pictured: One of the bedrooms

A new owner will be able to impress visitors with both the interior of the property and also the wow factor of the mini island outside

A central staircase runs through the home, providing access for the five bedrooms and three bathrooms

‘There are otters on the island and when we showed someone round the other day there was a seal in the river.

‘Anyone that likes wildlife, bird watching, fishing, boating – this is perfect. There’s a marina 200 yards away.

‘It’s really quite tranquil at the end of garden and you’ve got your own mooring so you can have your boat at the end of your garden and sail off down the river to wherever you want to go.

‘The island would be fantastic for kids to plan and make their own den. It’s very Swallows and Amazons.

The rear of the home features a sheltered outdoor area which leads on to a patio and down to the river

‘And at the moment it would be a great place to self-isolate.

‘You’ve got your mooring, then the island and the main river is on the other side, so it’s nice and quietly tucked away from people boating.

‘It’s a really beautiful setting but you’ve also got the possibility of running a business and the potential for redevelopment – it doesn’t fit into one box.’

The home has its own mooring and deck area and the new owner can get to their island using a pulley system
