1 Westgate Terrace is an elegant five bedroom home offering deceptively spacious and well-presented accommodation. It is situated in a popular and attractive location within this highly regarded and well served village. The property is believed to date back to 1837 and is of grey gault brick construction, under a slate tiled roof, and is a Grade II Listed building, noted for its special architectural or historic interest. The property offers approximately 3800 sq ft of accommodation, set over four floors, with the useful four sectioned basement providing an excellent expansive area with potential for further development. The property additionally benefits from an attractive enclosed garden, garaging and off-road parking to the front. A viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the quality and feel of such a desirable home.

Accommodation
The accommodation, in brief, comprises wooden front door with glazed fan light over, leading to the spacious and elegant entrance hall. Attractive staircase rising to first floor and solid walnut doors off. Both the drawing and dining rooms are situated to the front of the property and benefit from shutters and large sash windows affording attractive views; these give an abundance of natural light to the rooms. As one would expect from a house from this era there is generous ceiling height throughout the house and this makes for comfortable and inviting reception rooms. The sitting room also benefits from deep wooden skirting matching the other rooms giving them great character. The open fireplace with inset multi-fuel stove on a tiled hearth with moulded wood surround is the focal point of the room and double doors open onto the rear terracing and in turn provide for views over the garden and the Church tower beyond. The kitchen breakfast room is fitted with a range of oak base and wall units, complimented by granite work surfaces and a ceramic Belfast sink, and incorporating a breakfast bar. Integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher, electric oven and four ring hob with extractor fan over. Double doors open to the dining room and door to rear garden. The rear hall gives access to the cloakroom and stairs lead to the basement level of the property. The basement is currently configured in four sections with each area providing their own excellent individual use. The main room could offer potential for further everyday use and was previously believed to be the servant’s kitchen. It is popular, currently, to develop basement areas to provide further living space, gym, cinema rooms etc and is thought this may be possible subject to the necessary planning/listed building consents. The utility room provides plumbing for a washing machine and space for additional appliances and floor and wall units provide useful extra storage space. Two further rooms, currently configured as a wine cellar and storage room.

In keeping with the ground floor, the first floor landing is once again a sophisticated area with the sash window providing fine views. Doors off to all three double bedrooms, to the well-appointed family bathroom and a staircase leads to the second floor. The second floor houses two further double bedrooms, both affording striking views across roof tops and fields beyond, and a second family bathroom. There are two commodious and useful attic rooms which provided excellent and accessible storage areas.


Outside
The gardens, in the region of 0.2 acres (subject to survey), are a fine attribute of the property. A driveway, providing valuable off-road parking for two cars, leads to the garage. A long narrow building with a vaulted ceiling and ideal for those with a modestly sized car, motorcycles or bicycles. Power and lighting connected and door to rear garden. A wooden shed is situated to the rear of the garage and can be accessed from the rear garden. The front garden is enclosed by hedging with stone steps and wrought iron railings leading to the property. The rear walled garden is an impressive feature of the house and a terrace, ideal for alfresco eating and entertaining, adjoins the property. Railway sleeper bordered steps rise to the main garden with its central expanse of lawn bordered by extensive flowerbeds and established trees. The garden affords a good degree of privacy.


Situation
The property is situated just off the picturesque and highly desirable green in Long Melford which is a beautiful and historic Suffolk village. The village provides an excellent range of amenities to include schooling, doctors and a range of shops including a supermarket, a post office, antique stores, boutiques and galleries, as well as a range of public houses, fine hotels and excellent restaurants. Sudbury, lying approximately 3 miles away, provides further shops, educational and social facilities, as well as a branch line railway station with a rail link into London Liverpool Street via Marks Tey (a faster direct line to London is also available from Colchester).
