A delightful detached 4 bedroom period property with stunning gardens of about 0.5 acres incorporating a studio/home office, garage & good parking on the rural edge of Long Melford along a little used country lane.

Occupying an idyllic rural setting, Cocks Green House is an attractive double fronted house which dates from the early 20th century. In the 1980s, the property was extended to the rear which essentially doubled the original accommodation. Recently, the house has undergone numerous improvements which includes reconfiguration of the reception areas giving an appealing, open plan arrangement to the sitting room and the kitchen / dining room with wonderful views over the garden. The kitchen has been refitted with oak work surfaces, bespoke units with display cabinets and hardwood flooring throughout. The accommodation generally is presented to an excellent and tasteful standard which compliments the 20th century build - whilst giving a modern, contemporary edge. Further improvements by the current owners include replacement double glazed windows and the recent instillation of a boiler.

The first floor also offers a practical and pleasing layout via a central landing which blends the original front part well to the extension. Of particular note is the magnificent, full width master bedroom with ensuite shower having a central bay window and Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens and countryside beyond towards Long Melford. Due to its elevated setting, the front bedrooms also give far-reaching views towards Borely village and beyond.

A detached annex/studio makes working from home ideal, being fully insulated with power, light and heating. Built to an attractive period design with weather-boarded elevations, the annex also enjoys triple aspect views over the garden.

The house is approached over an ‘in and out’ driveway giving ample off road parking with a detached weather-boarded garage to one side. Beyond are the exceptional secluded gardens which were designed and planted by a nationally renowned horticulturalist and author. A raised paved and shingle terrace leads onto areas of lawn, interspersed with numerous flower borders stocked with an extensive range of specimen plants, shrubs and trees giving consistent appeal throughout the seasons. Towards the far boundary is the vegetable patch and small orchard area having apple, plum, medlar and mulberry. Outbuildings include brick and tile log store, chicken run, timber shed and greenhouse.

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.
