A delightful 4 bedroom Grade II listed cottage in a peaceful elevated setting with stunning views over rolling countryside on the edge of the sought after village of Kersey.

2 Vale Corner is an enchanting Grade II listed cottage situated on the rural edge of the sought after village of Kersey. Probably dating back to the 1700s, the property is timber framed with plastered elevations and casement windows under a clay tiled roof; there is also a superb 2-storey extension to the rear built in 2000. The interior is very well presented and naturally light with period features including exposed timbers and 2 fireplaces, both with woodburners. On the ground floor there is a lovely custom-built kitchen with painted wooden units, wood and stone worksurfaces, a double ceramic sink and plumbing for a dishwasher. Open studwork opens though to the dining room, which has an inglenook fireplace and a continuation of the terracotta pamment flooring which is also featured in the kitchen. The sitting room and family room are again divided by open studwork and enjoy wonderful views. There is also a utility room on the ground floor and an attractively fitted bath/shower room. On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms as well as an ensuite wc. There are 2 staircases and some exceptional views especially from the master bedroom. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the delightful country charm of the cottage as well as the peaceful edge of village setting.

The typical English country cottage garden is a further special feature and principally lies to the rear of the house. From the parking area at the rear, a gate opens onto a path which meanders through the garden which is partly laid to lawn with a large central flower bed with flower borders to the side as well. These are filled with a colourful abundance of flowers, including foxgloves, lupins, delphiniums, roses and spring bulbs. Outbuildings include a garden store and a versatile timber framed studio (by separate negotiation) which can alternatively provide a gym/office. There is off road parking to the rear.

Kersey is considered by many to be one of the prettiest villages in Suffolk; consisting of predominantly period properties with a ford (‘The Splash’) running through the middle and the splendid St Mary’s Church positioned at the top of Church Hill. Village amenities include a highly regarded primary school, popular pub and Kersey Mill and gym providing yoga, pilates and personal training. Nearby Hadleigh offers a wide range of everyday amenities, and for the commuter there are mainline stations for London’s Liverpool Street from Manningtree and Colchester.

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.
