A RARE OPPORTUNITY to purchase an enchanting & well preserved medieval Hall House with a south facing garden in an idyllic & peaceful hamlet setting - also with planning permission for a superb contemporary extension plus a large double garage & workshop.

Stackwood Cottage is a delightful and well preserved Grade II listed medieval hall house centrally set in a good sized garden which backs onto open countryside. Believed to date back to the 1400s, the cottage is of timber frame construction with plastered elevations under a newly thatched roof and there are impressive period features throughout including a large inglenook fireplace, exposed timbers, original floors, notably high and vaulted ceilings and some medieval diamond mullions. The current owner has carried out many improvements, not least re-thatching the cottage, decorating and installing a charming bathroom with roll top bath and separate showe cubicle. He has also secured planning permission for a superb single storey contemporary extension together with a large double garage/workshop.

The contemporary single storey extension was designed by award-winning architects, Wincer Kievenaar, to provide a glass walled link into a kitchen/breakfast room with glass bi-folding doors onto the garden; a utility room adjoins. There is also a double bedroom with bi-folding doors and
an ensuite bathroom. Planning consent also exists to demolish the lean-to extension to the side elevation of the cottage. (Planning ref: DC/18/01322 and DC/18/01321).

The generous garden surrounds the cottage to all
aspects. There is a spacious parking area to the front where there is space for the approved double garage to be built. The principal rear garden is a south facing suntrap which is principally laid to lawn. This adjoins farmland providing a beautiful backdrop.

Stackyard Green is an isolated hamlet on the rural edge of the picturesque village of Monks Eleigh. Originally a medieval green settlement, the hamlet now consists of a small cluster of attractive properties at the end of a peaceful no-through lane. Monks Eleigh has a pub/restaurant, village shop, craft centre & tea rooms as well as Boyton Hall Equestrian Centre with excellent livery facilities.

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.
