Full description

Tenure: Freehold

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.
