A delightful and very well-presented detached Grade II listed cottage with an enchanting garden and a superb custom-built kitchen/dining room in a sought after village location.

The Thatchers House is a delightful, detached Grade II listed house believed to date back to the 1600s and was originally a Yeomans Hall House. The property is beautifully presented throughout with many character features including exposed timbers, some brick and wooden floors, an inglenook fireplace in the sitting room and an open fire in the drawing room. There is a superb custom-built kitchen/dining room with painted wooden units and granite and hard wood work surfaces. Integral appliances include a fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher, electric hob and 2 oven Aga. The kitchen is open plan to the dining room providing good family space and creating the hub of the house. The accommodation is flexible throughout with two staircases and a first-floor study that could easily provide an additional bedroom. There is a ground floor bedroom with an adjoining shower room, as well as a further ground floor bathroom but there is space to easily create first floor bathrooms should this be required. Internal viewing is strongly recommended.

The grounds of about 0.21 acres form a particular feature of the property being beautifully planted and very well maintained. A flagstone sun terrace incorporating an old water well adjoins the rear of the house and is accessed via the kitchen providing an ideal alfresco dining area. This gives way to the lawn which is bordered by flower and shrub beds as well as numerous trees including eating apple and twisted willows. There are 3 further evening terraces and seating areas with an attractive water feature and remote external lighting. The garden is fully enclosed with a gate onto Ashen Lane and a further gate onto a side driveway providing parking space.

Stoke by Clare is a popular village centred around a delightful Green with amenities including a public house, community village shop, livery yard and Stoke College, an independent co-educational nursery, junior and senior school offering day facilities as well as weekly boarding. Further extensive amenities can be found in Clare (2.5 miles), Long Melford (8 miles) and Haverhill (6 miles). The A1017 is about 1½ miles distant giving good access to Cambridge and the A11 (M11).

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.
