Tenure: Freehold

Beautiful sunny, private gardens. Al fresco living. Style and class. Space. Sauna and steam room! No chain! What a great home. 10 minutes from the Science Park! And its got great potential - with a very large loft space, subject of course to all the relevant permissions, you could transform this into a very substantial two storey home just moments from the beautiful city of Cambridge.

You're probably wondering how you're going to find that elusive dream home, the one which gives you easy access to all the things which are important to you, without any compromise. In this case you just might have hit the jackpot. You can cycle in to the city centre or to the Science Park in no more than 20/25 minutes (mainly on cycle paths), and yet here you are with countryside on your doorstep, an acre of land and an immaculate six bedroomed home of around 2300 square feet. This is a stunning single storey property of show home quality, which backs on to woodland and fields.

Stow cum Quy is a village just to the north-east of Cambridge and close to junction 35 of the A14. So its within easy driving distance of Cambridge city centre, the Science Park, Newmarket, the A11 and the M11. All the major employment centres to the north and south of the city are easily accessible, for example you can drive to the Science Park in about 5/10 minutes, to ARM on Fulbourn Road in about 10 minutes, to the Babraham Research centre in about 15 minutes, or Addenbrooke's in about 20 minutes or so. Newmarket Road Park and Ride is about two miles away.

There are a few amenities in the village, including a village store, church, three pubs and the award winning Quy Mill Hotel and Spa, with its excellent restaurant, gym and swimming pool. As well as all the private schools in Cambridge, the adjoining village of Bottisham has a primary school (Ofsted rating "Good") and Bottisham Village College.

Melrose Fields is set at the very edge of the village, set back from the A1303 Newmarket Road. The house has an in and out driveway and is well screened from the road by high, mature trees and bushes. There's woodland to the side of the house, and fields at the back, leaving the house completely private and secluded. If you want to increase your privacy, there is current planning permission for fencing and gates to be added to the front boundary.

The house itself has been extended and completely re-furbished by the current owners, in a very environmentally friendly way. The design of the house is superb - its show home quality. And it is very spacious and light, with very flexible living accommodation.

As you step into the house through the front porch, you'll immediately notice the feeling of space and calm. There's a fabulous high-ceilinged entrance hall, complete with a wood-burning stove which helps provide underfloor heating throughout the house. The dual aspect living room looks out to the side garden, and has a lovely open fireplace. The living room opens on to the dining room, and from there to the stunning kitchen breakfast room with views over the back garden. The boot room leads out on to the garden as well as giving access to the utility room.

In the centre of the house you'll find a beautifully decorated garden room with french doors leading you out to the sun terrace and back garden. To the side of the sitting room is the family bathroom. Now if you want the wow factor, come and see this - its stunning.

The rest of the house comprises six bedrooms to the front, side and back of the house. Of course if you wish, some of these could easily be turned in to office space, TV rooms, cinema rooms, man-caves, kids' rooms, meditation areas etc etc etc .... you choose.

And then there's the shower room. Well, that label doesn't really do it any justice. Its a combined shower/steam -sauna, which fits 4 people. Party time.

Outside the house you've got a double garage at the front of the house (you can park your car there if you really wish, but the gravelled driveway holds at least 6 cars so you may not bother). At the back of the house there's a large sun terrace for your al fresco living, a large lawned area, small orchard, and a vegetable and herb garden.

So if that hasn't convinced you to come and look at it, here are some of the many eco-friendly features of the house:

> Efficient Air Source Heat pump provides all hot water and heating

> Water underfloor heating throughout, with individual room thermostats

> Wood burner contributes 10kw to heating the water

> Fully insulated

> Eco double-glazed windows with argon

> Renewable Heat Incentive payments to the new owner of £7500 over the next 6 years

> Rabbit proof fencing.
