One of Haverhill’s largest and most prestigious residential properties, this elegant home is believed to date from the late c18, and is the original Manor House of the town. (Lord of the Manor title is not included in the sale).

The property has been sympathetically restored by the present owners retaining/replacing many architectural features of its period including internal shutters, deep moulded skirting and architraves, high ceilings with moulded cornices, tiled floors, large sash windows and stripped timber flooring.

The property has been re-wired and re-plumbed with a modern heating system (designed with redundancy and expansion built in should a change of use to hotel etc be considered) and all bath/shower rooms have been replaced in addition to a refitted large scale granite and tile kitchen.

Outside the property is approached by an impressive sweeping in and out driveway.

Hamlet Road is on the eastern edge of the town centre in a conservation area where many of the town’s historic properties are located and Vale Place is within half a mile of the shopping centre.
Haverhill is a well-served Market Town with a wide range of facilities. It is located about 15 miles to the south east of Cambridge and 10 miles north of Saffron Walden. Audley End Railway station is about 14 miles to the south and Whittlesford Parkway is about 10 miles to the west.

The impressive main entrance is up stone steps to a beautiful central Portico porch with reeded Doric columns and flat entablature above with door leading to the reception hall with patterned quarry tiled floor. This gives access to the two main reception rooms and principal staircase and there is a door to the cellars.

The large elegant drawing room enjoys three aspects to the front, rear and over the main gardens to the east with three sets of French windows leading to the garden. It has a large fireplace with embellished iron surround and marble slips.

Across the hall is the dining room which overlooks the front garden and has an exposed timber floor, shelved cupboard and doors to the study and kitchen. The study is another bright room with dual aspects through the deep sash windows and a door to the side hall which has a door to the side driveway.

The kitchen/breakfast room has a large central island with granite surface incorporating a breakfast bar with cupboards below and inset sink. There is a gas hob set in a recess with granite surface and stainless steel splashback. Built-in double oven (never used), dish washer and ceramic tiled floor.

A door from the kitchen leads to the breakfast room/ snug which has a fireplace incorporating a log burner, a ceramic tiled floor and French window to the side garden.

The family room spans the back of the property with views over the gardens to three aspects and French window to the side garden.

From the back hall there is a door to the garden, a passage leading to the separate downstairs W.C and Wet room and a secondary staircase to the first floor.

The cellars are split into three: The main area with paver brick floor accommodates the gas central heating boiler and hot water cylinder and water storage tanks in event of drought. There is a workshop area with flint walls and Pamment tiled floor and the third part has brick vaulted wine stores.

On the first floor there are two staircases leading to the second floor, one off the main landing supplied and fitted by the restorers of Windsor Castle and the other more utilitarian off the back landing.

There is a further sitting room/ bedroom on the north east side with views over the garden, built in wardrobes and a door to bathroom 1 which has a central roll top bath, 2 hand basins and a W.C., half tiled walls and a ceramic tiled floor. There are 3 further bedroom suites, all with modern shower/bathrooms and 2 more bedrooms with a modern bath/shower room on the first floor and a further 4 bedroom suites, again with modern shower/bathrooms and landing/store room on the second floor. Bedrooms 6 and 7 enjoy extensive views over the town roof-tops.

Outside: The property is approached by an impressive double entrance driveway with curved brick wall flanking the eastern half and provides ample parking for several vehicles. The beautiful mature private gardens to the side and rear are enclosed by high brick walls on all but one boundary. The extensive lawns run down to a small wooded area which runs across the southern boundary and contains many specimens of mature trees and shrubs. There is a small brick built ‘Toll House’ built into the eastern boundary. On the south western corner is a walled garden with double gates leading to the front and a quarry tiled patio area.

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.
