A charming recently refurbished Grade II listed house standing in wonderful gardens of about an acre with outstanding views over rolling countryside.

Black Fen is a charming Grade II Listed house dating back to the 17th/18th Century of traditional timber frame construction under a thatch roof. Situated on Scotland Street, a wonderful quiet lane on the edge of Stoke by Nayland, the property enjoys stunning views over the adjoining undulating countryside. Black Fen also offers the real opportunity for additional income as the Studio, Barn and the potential self contained annexe within the house all provide options for bed and breakfast or holiday lettings subject to the necessary consents.

Black Fen has recently been imaginatively refurbished with the creation of an outstanding kitchen/breakfast/garden room and the reconfiguring of the first floor to introduce a superb master bedroom suite. The property retains much of its original character with many original features including fine inglenook fireplaces in the sitting and dining rooms, exposed beams and timbers. The principal reception rooms and bedrooms face south with views over the garden and countryside beyond.

The accommodation is very adaptable with the opportunity to create a self contained annexe at the western end of the house to include the living room which has a small kitchen area within it , the shower room and bedroom 4 that has its own independent staircase. The peaceful gardens are a special feature of Black Fen amounting to about one acre. A wide paved terrace adjoins the rear of the property with extensive lawns beyond interspersed with mature trees and shrubs established well stocked herbaceous beds and a vegetable garden. A sunken terrace has been created to take full advantage of the afternoon sun and glorious views.

A drive to the side of Black Fen opens onto an extensive parking area and access to the detached double garage block comprising the garage 5.8m x 4m, a wc and log store. Nearby is the light and airy studio/annexe with laminate floor and ensuite shower room.

The small ‘Barn’ close to Black Fen is of timber frame construction under a wonderful thatched roof with many of the original timbers exposed, that has also been upgraded to create a potential annexe with a separate bathroom.

Black Fen is about 0.5 miles outside the immensely popular village of Stoke by Nayland. Houses rarely become available in the sought after, peaceful and picturesque hamlet of Scotland Street which is surrounded by the rolling countryside of the Dedham Vale in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

There are two very popular restaurants, The Crown Inn and The Angel, as well as a village store, book shop, garage, primary school and Golf & Country Club with two 18-hole courses and well equipped gym.

Nearby Nayland and Hadleigh provide for everyday needs, whilst both Ipswich and Colchester provide extensive amenities including highly regarded schools and mainline stations with fastest trains to Liverpool Street from Colchester taking 49 minutes. Nearby Manningtree station is also a commuter option. Popular Littlegarth Prep School is about 4 miles.

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.
