He said the proposal would be harmful to residents of nearby Richmond Court and "not only would the overall scale and massing of the extended dwelling he particularly dominant and unobtrusive" but it would obscure views beyond.
In dismissing an appeal against a Fenland Council decision, he said he had taken into account the applicants' requirement to house a disabled parent.
