A stunning and unique energy efficient contemporary home with a south facing garden and gated private parking in a central yet tucked-away setting in the centre of sought-after Lavenham within easy walking distance of excellent restaurants, shops & amenities.

The Hidden House is a unique contemporary retreat that contrasts in an exciting way to the surrounding medieval architecture of picturesque Lavenham. Hidden away behind a high brick wall and tall timbered double gates it takes a discerning eye to realise a property exists within this central village setting. The energy efficient home is of timber frame construction with Canadian red cedar cladding, large zinc framed window spaces and a bi-folding door under a zinc roof. The zinc roof has integral guttering and zinc down pipes that take the water to tanks feeding the water recovery system which supplies the garden. Internally, the hot water system is fed using a Harlequin thermal heat store, whilst the underfloor heating is a wet system running off a 6kw Sadia heatrae electric boiler. We understand these combine with a high level of insulation and thermal spaces to make it a thermally efficient home.

Bi-folding doors open into the open plan living space which incorporates a handcrafted kitchen with Birch units and shelving, an induction hob, cooker and steam oven, extractor fan, integral fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a ceramic sink. There is a sky light and the flooring, which extends throughout the property, is engineered oak which is hand stained in Osmo oil. An inner hall with curved walls leads to the 2 bedrooms which both have fitted wardrobes and cupboards. The principal bedroom has an ensuite shower room with attractive tiling which also features in the second shower room accessed via the inner hall.

The property is accessed from Hall Road via a pair of oak bifolding gates set in a brick wall which open onto a parking area with an embedded gravel surface with slate edgings. There is a raised flower bed with lavender and a magnolia tree, as well as a concealed storage area for wheelie bins. Wooden steps with a steel hand rail lead up to a spacious decking terrace with glazed panels and a black bamboo privacy screen. Incorporated within the shrub bed is a beautiful mature olive tree as well as an Agave Americana. As the garden faces due south it provides a sunny sun trap. The terrace extends to the side of the property as well.

Lavenham is famed as the best preserved medieval village in England with about 340 listed buildings, all of which are centred around a delightful village square which features The Guildhall. The village offers an excellent selection of amenities including a post office, butchers, bakery, grocery stores, pharmacy and more. In addition there are many popular restaurants, pubs, galleries, hotels and the award winning Weaver’s Spa at The Swan Hotel.

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.
