About The Area Old Newton is an attractive and well served village with a good, active community. Amenities include church, primary school, shop, public house, sports and social club. The A14 provides convenient access to the larger neighbouring towns such as Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich and also the A12, A140 and A11/M11. The nearby town of Stowmarket provides a good range of shops, recreational and leisure facilities, schooling and, in particular, a mainline railway service to London Liverpool Street (approx journey time of 80 minutes).

Nearby villages such as Haughley and Mendlesham and slightly further afield Needham Market, offer a further range of amenities including restaurants, bakeries, butchers, post office, antique stores and doctors surgeries. Old Newton offers many meandering footpaths through the countryside, perfect for keen walkers.  

Directions From the railway station in Stowmarket proceed over the gates away from the town and turn left at the roundabout as signposted towards Old Newton on to Newton Road (B1113). Follow this country lane for approximately three miles and turn right onto Whitehall Road as you reach the village. Continue onto Church Road which then becomes Chapel Road, pass the church on your left, bear left onto Brown Street and the property can be found in front of you marked by a for sale board. 

Vendor Statement "What a fantastic home to start our lives. We loved this house as children & still do, it's been our family home for over 50 years. As children it was a wonderful place to grow up, whether the sun shone, the wind blew, or the snow covered the ground there were always memories to make. The large garden has given us many hours of enjoyment from finding birds nesting in the hedge row as children too many hours of carefree playing in the open spaces.

The friendly village has lots to offer and is a wonderful place to enjoy the countryside and family life. The house was once an old Blacksmiths so to find a horse shoe or two is still a thrill to young or older! So if one is found we hope it brings luck and happiness to the new owners."
