A delightful and surprisingly spacious 4 bedroom Victorian property with a sympathetic extension and large garden of about 0.2 acres in a lovely countryside setting.

Station Villa is a handsome semi-detached Victorian property with a generous garden of about 0.2 acres backing onto rolling countryside. In recent years, the current owners have extended the house over two-storeys to provide family accommodation; in addition planning permission still exists to extend the kitchen if required. The extension perfectly blends in with the original brick built structure with sash windows under a slate tiled roof. Fine period features throughout include high ceilings, fireplaces, and some exposed floorboards. The hallway with an elegant staircase gives access to the cosy sitting room with an open fire which connects to the spacious family/drawing room which has also been used as a dining room. This flows into a charming everyday dining room with a fitted kitchen adjoining and beyond is a utility/boot room with a cloakroom off which could provide a ground floor shower room if required. On the first floor, the landing gives access to 3 double bedrooms and one single bedroom which is currently used as a study. There is also a family bathroom plus access into a spacious loft which has a sky light and provides good storage space.

The large garden surrounds the house to the front, side and rear and is an important feature. There is a pretty rose garden to the front enclosed by wrought iron fencing and a gate and path lead to the front door. The side and rear garden are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with flower and shrub beds and trees including a walnut and apple tree. A terrace adjoining the rear of the house enjoys a southerly aspect. There is also an insulated workshop with power connected. There is a good parking area to the front, albeit this is undesignated. Also, a track to the side allows access to a private parking area to the rear.

Station Villa is located on the rural edge of Birdbrook which falls within the Essex/Suffolk/Cambridgeshire borders. Village amenities include The Plough pub and Church of St Augustines. There is good access onto the A1017 leading to Haverhill (about 4 miles), Cambridge, the M11 and to Linton (about 11.5 miles) which has a popular secondary college. The nearby villages of Steeple Bumpstead and Clare also provide for everyday needs. Stansted Airport is about 19 miles.

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.
