An exceptional first floor 2 bedroom apartment with an open plan sitting/dining room and kitchen, 2 bathrooms and parking for 2 cars in the heart of one of Suffolk's most sought after villages.

This beautiful flat is just one of two on the first floor of this historic building. The property was converted about 17 years ago to create a quality retail unit on the ground floor occupied by interior designers, two first floor flats and a penthouse on the second floor. Access to each of the three flats is by a secure entry phone system with an easy rising staircase which also has a stairlift.

The spacious reception hall, which has a built-in cupboard housing the washing machine, gives access to all the rooms including the living room with attractive sash windows and wonderful views over the Mill Stream. This room naturally divides into sitting and dining areas with double doors into the fitted kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped with a built-in oven and hob, extensive cupboards, a dishwasher and fridge. The good quality appliances are lightly used and can be included in the sale. The principal bedroom has an ensuite shower room and enjoys views across neighbouring gardens. There is a further bedroom and bathroom. In addition, there are double built-in wardrobes in both bedrooms. This lovely flat will have a wide appeal including as a potential weekend retreat or full time home.

Flat 1 is approached from the rear, with the entrance in Fen Street. There is an open cartlodge-garage for one car with an additional car parking space on the forecourt solely for the use of Flat 1. This area can also provide outdoor sitting space.

We understand the building was first referred to as a Corn Mill in records dated 1674; it was rebuilt in the early C18th then 'edified' to a five storey structure in 1823 with a gantry over the road to the mill lade. Barges came here to load and unload after the River Stour was made navigable in 1705. The top three storeys and gantry were dismantled in 1922.

Nayland, in the Stour Valley, is designated as an area of 'Outstanding Natural Beauty' and the village has recently been voted 8th in the Top 30 Places To Live In The UK Countryside. This highly sought after village has an active community with facilities including a school, restaurant/public house, shops, post office, doctors' surgery, dentists and Church. Colchester and Ipswich both provide extensive shopping, cultural and recreational facilities whilst the commuter can take advantage of train services from Colchester to London’s Liverpool Street Station with fastest trains taking from 47 mins.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
