3,078 sq ft spacious detached village house with self contained annexe and large part-walled garden in this charming village 3 miles south east of the famous horse-racing town of Newmarket


40 High Street is well situated towards the middle of this charming linear village that is located some 3 miles south east of the famous horse-racing town of Newmarket and close to the villages of Ashley and Saxon Street. There are a good range of local amenities in the village including a post office/village store, public house, primary school, recreation ground and historic church, all nestling amongst beautiful undulating west Suffolk countryside whilst being conveniently placed for access to the A14, A11 and M11.

A wide range of everyday facilities are provided in Newmarket - the world famous home of English racing which offers sporting and leisure facilities, as well as shops, schools, a rail station and restaurants. The high tech University City of Cambridge is 16.5 miles to the west where there are extensive shopping, cultural, recreational and educational facilities. Bury St Edmunds (15 miles to the east) is a very picturesque market town, boasting a Cathedral, Georgian Theatre, many independent shops and a modern shopping centre.

Secondary schooling is available at Newmarket Academy whilst local independent schools include Barnardiston Hall Preparatory School, Fairstead House in Newmarket and Culford Senior and Preparatory School near Bury St. Edmunds.


40 High Street is a spacious detached property which provides versatile accommodation over two floors all on a large plot of approximately 0.76 of an acre. Principally of brick elevations beneath a tiled roof, the property has been extended to create a larger than expected, light, spacious and versatile family home. The vendors have made further improvements including the addition of a bay window to the family room/study to the front aspect. There is a higher proportion of ground floor accommodation which includes the annexe to the rear of the garage - linked should an occupant wish to incorporate this space into the principal accommodation.

A part glazed front door leads to the entrance hall with tiled flooring and stairs to the first floor. To the right is the spacious open plan kitchen/breakfast/living room, fitted with a good range of curved edged base and wall cupboards, a central island with integrated Siemens induction hob, Elica extractor hood and further storage. There are "Granite Transformations" worktops, a Siemens electric oven and microwave, ceramic 1 1/2-bowl sink unit, and Miele integrated fridge freezer and dishwasher. Beside the kitchen area is a useful utility room with a stable door to the rear garden, oil fired boiler, a butler sink, water softener and plumbing for a washing machine.

There is ample space in the kitchen for a dining table and there are glazed doors to a garden room/conservatory to the rear - all enjoying superb views of the partly walled garden. Glazed doors also lead to the family room/study at the front of the house whilst double doors and steps lead down to the large, light vaulted sitting room. This is an L-shaped room with a fan-assisted log burner and additional sitting/TV area with French doors to the garden. To the left of the hall is a cloak/shower room with a tiled walk-in shower and a further reception room (or ground floor bedroom) which is used as a dining room also having French doors to the garden. From here is a part glazed "side passage" which links the house to the annexe. The principal room in the annexe is a sitting/dining room with a kitchenette at one end fitted with cupboards, drawers, a Siemens induction hob with extractor and space for a fridge, washing machine and dishwasher. This room has a vaulted ceiling with painted timbers and French doors to the rear. In addition there is a bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room.

On the first floor, there is a part vaulted master bedroom - which enjoys lovely views over the rear garden - a walk-in wardrobe/dressing room and has a fully tiled en-suite with bath, shower and under-floor heating; 2 further double bedrooms and a fully tiled family bathroom with an oval bath separate shower cubicle and large airing cupboard.

The gardens and grounds are a delight, to the front is a wide, sweeping driveway with electric iron gates leading to the double garage that incorporates a workshop area and a useful sink and an area of lawn with trees and shrubs. The attractive rear garden is part walled with a lawn and areas of trees, shrubs and flowerbeds. There is a terrace beside the house and a path leading to a wooded area to the rear in which there is a variety of lovely mature trees including Oak, Ash and Field Maple. Beyond the rear garden are lovely views over paddocks.
