A delightful unlisted cottage with an established garden
of about 0.4 acres and swimming pool in a peaceful rural setting with far reaching views.

Larretts Cottage is a delightful unlisted period property in a peaceful rural setting with lovely countryside views. Of timber frame construction under a principally pan tiled roof with plastered elevations and leaded windows, the cottage probably dates back to the 1500s and has fine period features throughout including exposed timbers and fireplaces. The free-flowing ground floor accommodation makes it ideal for entertaining as the sitting room, dining room and drawing room all connect. The kitchen overlooks the sunny swimming pool area and has the potential to extend further into this terrace over 2 storeys. A workshop adjoins the kitchen and this used to provide an integral garage; this space would make an ideal reception hall flowing into a kitchen/family area (stp). There is also a shower room and family bathroom on the ground floor. On the first floor there are 2 double bedrooms, a landing bedroom 3 plus a dressing room with potential to create an ensuite bathroom. The property provides a charming home with wonderful views as it currently stands, albeit there are these onward possibilities as well.

The established garden forms a further lovely feature. There is a good sized front garden which is laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders and a brick path leading to the front door. An off-road parking area lies infront of the former garage and there is space to provide a new garage or cartlodge if required (stp). There is a south west facing swimming pool area which is a sheltered and private sun trap. The deep swimming pool is currently empty but could be a great feature to enjoy and probably requires some maintenance. Adjoining is a former pool house/changing room. To the rear of the cottage is a narrow strip of garden which overlooks a neighbouring meadow recently planted with trees.

Belchamp Walter is a picturesque and peaceful village centred around a duck pond and surrounded by open countryside. The village of Long Melford is about 5 miles and provides a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants. The market town of Sudbury has extensive amenities and facilities including a railway link to London Liverpool Street. The popular village of Clare is about 6 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.
