A STUNNING waterfront house with its own island is for sale for £1.4m – and it could be even bigger.
The Summer House in Maidenhead, Berkshire, on the banks of the Thames, was also given permission to expand the zoning to create a much nicer waterfront estate.
The current home has 1,187 square feet of accommodation.
There is an entrance hall, an open plan living room with seating area with three sets of French doors opening onto the garden and river views and a stylishly equipped kitchen.
The ground floor also has a bedroom with built-in wardrobe, river view and two wet rooms.
A cleverly concealed door leads to the first floor, where another spacious bedroom is located.
The planning permit will allow for raised exterior walls, new roof heights and side two-story extensions.

There is also an annex building, called The Tree House, built in 2000 as a studio and refurbished circa 2008-09.
It offers another 682 square feet space with an open plan living room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
In the garden there is a workshop and storage room, parking for several cars and 110ft river front with a decking mooring.
It also has a beautiful view of the Grade I-listed Brunel railway bridge.
The property is located on a beautiful forbidden road with its back to the River Thames and about 1 mile from Maidenhead town centre.
Fiona Copeman, from Savills, who is selling properties, said: “Houses like this, with their location near the river, don’t show up very often, because people tend to cling to them.
“And it’s right next to Brunel Bridge, so it has good transport connections.
“It comes with planning permission to expand it and it’s a little island of its own in the Thames. It’s just small and really just ducks on it, but you can put a table and chairs on it, it’s like an additional garden.
“It’s a really wide stretch of river and a great spot to see boaters, wildlife and lots of water activities.
“The property is ripe for picking for those who want to follow the plan and build a lovely house by the river.
“It would take someone with a fair amount of money to do it, the value of the property is within the zoning permit.”
