One of the most handsome Grade II listed Georgian houses in the centre of sought-after Long Melford, with high ceilings and elegant features throughout. A blue plaque on the front facade is dedicated to its former owner, Admiral William Hanwell.

Hanwell House is one of the finest Georgian houses standing proudly on Hall Street in the heart of this well served village. The Grade II listed house has an elegant red brick frontage with a parapet, stucco cornice, sash and Venetian windows with arched glazing bars, as well as an impressive front door with a semi-circular fanlight, pilasters and an open pediment. Period features throughout the interior include high ceilings, cornices, original fireplaces, dado rail, some brass door furnishings and a beautiful staircase with a mahogany hand rail. The central hallway gives access to the sitting and dining rooms which are well proportioned and both have exposed floorboards. There is a fitted kitchen to the rear as well as a utility room/rear hall. An original brick and timbered staircase leads down to a lower ground floor office that could alternatively provide a wine cellar. From the ground floor hallway stairs lead up to a mezzanine level with a beautiful arched window and access to the family bathroom and separate wc. Further stairs lead up to the top floor with a master bedroom and ensuite wc, further double bedroom with deep cupboards as well as a third single bedroom. Outside there is a small courtyard garden which enjoys a south westerly aspect and incorporates a traditional brick outhouse with a pantiled roof and arched window.

A blue plaque on the front façade is dedicated to Admiral William Hanwell (1766-1830). In 1798 he served as senior Lieutenant of the Sheerness (44 guns) off the African Coast. He was quickly promoted up the ranks to Admiral following the death of his superior, gaining him a fortunate 2 graduations of rank (by default, it appears, as opposed to distinguishing performance!). His subsequent career saw him commanding vessels against Napoleon and he reached the rank of Rear Admiral of the Blue Squadron. Less impressively, he is believed to have married his niece in 1800 and in 1811 was tried, by a court martial, on a charge of repeated drunkenness and unofficer-like conduct; he was acquitted however. He died at Hanwell House in 1830.

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.
