Hidden away in a glorious rural setting, a delightful
5 bedroom country house set in about 2.1 acres
with a swimming pool and versatile outbuildings,
all surrounded by gently rolling countryside yet only about 1.5 mile from Bures station.

Hobbs Well is a delightful, unlisted, country house hidden away in a glorious rural setting surrounded by rolling countryside. Reached along a track, the property benefits from complete privacy yet is only about 1.5 miles from the centre of Bures which offers everyday amenities and a station. The original part of the house is timber framed and it has been sympathetically extended in recent years to provide family accommodation. Of particular note is a superb open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room which is ideal for family living and entertaining. The cosy sitting/tv area has exposed timbers and bespoke fitted display units and cupboards; this opens through to the custom built kitchen/dining room with a contemporary woodburner and bi-folding doors which open onto an alfresco dining terrace. There is also a walk-in pantry. In addition there is a snug which opens through into a scullery/large utility room with a cloakroom off. There is the potential to open this area into one large reception space or to provide a study if required. On the first floor, there is a superb master bedroom with stunning countryside views. There is an adjoining shower room, 4 further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Hobbs Well is accessed along a track which leads through a field to the parking area infront of the property. There is a double garage with a room above. The established grounds of about 2.1 acres form an important feature. A south west facing terrace, which adjoins the rear of the house, has a pergola with climbing wisteria and there is also a barbeque grill built into a chimney breast. Beyond is an expanse of lawn, a large heated swimming pool plus a pool house. There is a fine selection of trees including magnificent oaks, as well as an area of woodland with an enclosed chicken run and coop.

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.
