4 Rectory Road, Newton

Guide price £325,000

A charming period cottage that has been extended to both the side and to the rear to offers deceptively spacious accommodation. The property is of brick construction, with partial rendered front elevation, under a tiled roof. The property affords the most desirable location, being set just off from the main road through the village, crossing the green and the golf course, on a no-through road. It is fair to say that this charming cottage could be enhanced even further with some cosmetic work and updating, if so required, by any interested purchaser. Ideally if you would like to put your own personal mark on your next home. The property enjoys rural views and further benefits from good off-road parking.

The accommodation, in brief, comprises a generous reception hall with a brick archway leading to the excellent utility room and glazed French doors to the sitting room. The sitting room (17'8" x 13'7") is a comfortable and homely room with the brick fireplace, hearth and exposed brick walls being the focal point of the room. The inset multi-fuel stove powers some of the property's radiators and hot water system, with the electric central heating boiler and hot water tank (situated in the inner lobby) working alongside this. A bow window enjoys fine views to the front aspect. The inner lobby, with stairs rising to first floor, leads to the kitchen dining room (18'2" x 8'9") which is part of the extension to the rear of the property. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden base and wall units, finished with roll edged work surfaces and sink. Built in double oven, hob, extractor hood and fridge. A generous window overlooks the rear garden and French doors, from the dining area, also lead to this. The kitchen is complemented by a large utility (9'4" x 6'9"), previously the kitchen prior to the extension, which is also fitted with an excellent range of base and wall units and provides plumbing for both dishwasher and washing machine.

The first floor landing gives access to all bedrooms, to the family shower and to the separate wc. The bedrooms enjoy fine views and are all a good size (10'6" x 9'1", 20'2" x 9'4" max, 10' x 8'9" and 8'6" x 7'11") with three benefitting from fitted wardrobes and the large fourth bedroom currently being used as a study, but would make an ideal bedroom and dressing area. The family shower room is fitted with a walk in shower cubicle, low level wc and vanity wash hand-basin. Heated airing cupboard, towel rail and loft hatch. A separate cloakroom provides a useful additional toilet for the property.

The property is approached via a block paved driveway, which provides off-road parking for a number of vehicles. As is very typical of houses of this era, access can also be gained to the rear of the property via a communal side passageway. Once crossing the right-of-way over one of the neighbouring properties, a wooden gate leads to the rear garden of both No 3 (owned by the same vendor and currently no dividing fence) and No 4; favourably no one has access across the rear garden of No. 4. Abutting the rear of the property is a large patio area with a feature raised fish pond and garden shed. The patio leads in turn to the main lawned garden area, which is edged to one side with flower beds.

Newton is a popular village close to the well served market town of Sudbury and offers a delightful mixture of old and new properties. The village centres around the Green, which now houses the local Golf Club. Villagers of Newton have certain free playing rights on the original nine holes of the course, built originally for the villagers; full eighteen hole Membership and Green fees are available. The village is still served by a popular public house and traditional Church. Further shopping, recreational and leisure facilities can be found nearby in Sudbury, along with the main train line through to London and Colchester.

Mains electricity, water and drainage. Central heating served by a back-boiler on the wood burner and an independent electric boiler.
