In one of Suffolk's most sought after and commutable villages, a spacious Grade II listed family house with a large south facing garden running down to the River Stour, now with planning permission for a stunning two storey extension by award-winning architects.

Chandlers is a Grade II listed former hall house believed to date back to the 1400s with fine features including exposed timbers, fireplaces and 2 exceptional ogee-arched doorways. Offering spacious family accommodation, the property now has planning permission to enhance the current layout designed by the architects, Wincer Kievenaar, to also incorporate a stunning two storey extension with much glass ensuring a lovely outlook over the garden, river and meadow beyond. The new layout will provide a more cohesive family house with a spacious kitchen/family room with bi-folding doors onto the garden; this will flow into the large drawing room. The sitting room and study will remain the same but the secondary kitchen becomes a large utility/boot room adjoining an extended side entrance hall. On the first floor there will be a wonderful master bedroom suite over the kitchen extension with an ensuite shower room and dressing room. In addition, there will be a larger family bathroom above the side hall. Planning permission has also been granted for a double garage/carport in the parking area as well as a 'boathouse' studio by the millstream which could provide a delightful home office, workshop or gym etc. The Babergh Mid Suffolk planning reference is DC/18/05592/3.

Double gates from Bear Street open onto a spacious parking area to the west of the house. There is a charming summer house/studio/office adjoining the parking area which is fully insulated and has power connected. Beyond is an expanse of lawn which runs down to the River Stour which is a particularly charming feature of the property with a wonderful meadow outlook. A large south facing sun terrace adjoins the rear of the house which also provides access to the cellar. There are well stocked flower and shrub beds and a selection of trees including willow, weeping silver pear and fruit trees.

Nayland is a picturesque and sought-after village in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has an active community with facilities including a school, waterside pub/restaurant, Littlegarth prep school, shops, post office, doctors' surgery, dentists and Church. There are further popular restaurants in nearby Stoke by Nayland as well as a gym and golf course. More extensive amenities are provided in Colchester (about 6.5 miles) with highly-rated schools including the Royal Grammar School, Colchester High and Holmwood House. For the
commuter, regular trains from Colchester to Liverpool Street take from 48 minutes.

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.
