A wonderful Grade II listed former farmhouse with a stunning interior, spacious family accommodation, good parking and a landscaped garden situated on a picturesque village green with good access for Bury St Edmunds and Lavenham.

Cross Green House is an impressive Grade II listed former farmhouse believed to date back to the 1500s with a handsome gault brick Victorian facade and a pretty gabled porch. With an original timber frame, the property was significantly added to in the Victorian period with fine features including sash windows, high ceilings, fireplaces, exposed floorboards and original pamment and brick floors in the kitchen and utility room. All the reception rooms have fireplaces and interconnect making it an ideal layout for entertaining and family living. There is an attractively fitted kitchen/breakfast room with comprehensive units, granite worksurface, butler-style sink and a Rayburn set in the fireplace recess. The spacious adjoining utility room provides an over-flow kitchen area and laundry. The rear hall gives access to a delightful ground floor bedroom with an ensuite shower room. On the first floor, there are 4 further double bedrooms and superbly fitted and spacious family bathroom. There are 2 easy-rising staircases, one at either end of the house. Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the wonderful taste of this generous family house along with its pleasing layout.

There is a delightful, fully-enclosed garden to the rear which has been professionally landscaped to ensure colourful and abundant spring and summer time flower beds. A flagstone alfresco dining terrace adjoins the rear of the house surrounded by flower beds and a path leads to the lawn with a further south west facing terrace to the rear of the garden. A driveway to the side is shared with a neighbouring barn conversion and this leads to a private parking courtyard and tandem double garage/workshop converted from a traditional brick and flint outbuilding. The beautiful flint and brick work is continued in a wall the surrounds part of the garden along with high quality willow fencing.

Cross Green is a small and picturesque hamlet on the edge of the popular village of Cockfield. Cockfield is a friendly parish with local amenities including a general store and post office, pubs, garage, primary school, church and community centre facilities. The historic town of Lavenham is about 4.5 miles south, Bury St Edmunds is about 7 miles north offering a comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities, whilst Long Melford is about 7.5 miles distant.

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.
