81 Benton St is an attractive Grade II* listed property forming part of the delightful street scene of Hadleigh. The property is understood to date back to the 1500's with a timber framed construction and the addition of a Georgian facade in the 1700's. Under the peg tiled roof the property comprises 2 impressive reception rooms with impressive high ceilings, exposed timbers, some sash windows and superb brick fireplaces. To the front of the house there is a large drawing room with exposed beams, original wood flooring and an open fireplace. To the rear of the property there is a large sitting room featuring exposed beams and brick fireplace fitted with multi fuel stove. This room flows through to the kitchen/dining room, which has a walk in pantry and lovely outlook over the garden, and with the potential to extend (stp). Other rooms include an entrance hall with quarry tiles, wood panelling and side access to the garage, downstairs cloakroom/shower room, plus a cellar providing a study area as well as a separate utility.

The first floor offers a generous principal bedroom, exposed beams, brick fireplace and ensuite WC, as well as a further double bedroom, a single bedroom and a family bathroom. A curved staircase leads up to a further double bedroom on the 2nd floor, as well as an attic space, which houses the Grade II* listed crown post, also providing useful storage space.

To the front of the house there is off street parking for one car, plus a garage, as well as side access to the partly walled garden which encapsulates a mainly lawned garden and well stocked flower beds. At the end of the garden there is raised decking providing seating to capture the evening sun.

Hadleigh is a popular historic market town situated about 9 miles from Ipswich, 9 miles from Manningtree and about 14 miles from Colchester – all of which provide mainline services for London’s Liverpool Street station.

The town offers an excellent range of local amenities including restaurants, pubs, sports facilities and a wide selection of shops.

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.
