General information

General information This exceptional individual modern property sits on the western outskirts of the village of Belchamp St Paul with stunning open country views to the front across undulating farmland. The house has extensive and excellent family accommodation throughout with many attractive features incorporated into the design of the property.

This individual quality detached house of character was built in 1999 and subsequently extended in keeping with the original construction of the house. A feature of the property is the wealth of oak joinery throughout the property and spacious family rooms. There are many features of quality throughout the house including Aga stove, fitted wood burner, quality oak joinery to doors and flooring, and excellent bathroom accommodation throughout.

The property is set back from the quiet country road on the outskirts of the extremely attractive village of Belchamp St Paul with its large village green, looking out to the south over undulating countryside. Alongside the house is a double cart lodge with useful office area over. At the rear of the house is a natural stone terrace enclosed by dwarf brick walls which opens out onto the large grounds of the property which are informally laid out with newly planted, mature and semi mature woodland.

The grounds offer great scope to the property for equestrian use, if this is required. There is access from the property to bridleways that lead north to Clare and south to Castle Hedingham.

The front door leads into a spacious reception hall with solid oak flooring and staircase to the first floor and this large hall provides access to the main reception rooms including the sitting room, family room and dining room - all of which have fireplaces installed.

From the hallway there is direct access to the kitchen breakfast room which has an excellent range of fitted units, oil fired Aga, and adjoining is the utility room. The kitchen has solid wood units with granite worksurfaces and a Belfast sink unit.

Adjoining the kitchen is a stunning vaulted garden room approached by double doors from the kitchen and with bi-fold doors to the terrace.

On the first floor the large L shaped landing connects all of the bedrooms with the master suite being situated in one wing with a large dressing area and en suite bathroom.

Situated at the rear of the house are two further bedrooms, one with its own en suite bathroom and a further family bathroom. There are two additional bedrooms.

The outside The grounds and outbuildings are a really attractive feature of this large detached property.

The grounds extend to just over 2 acres and are generally level, partly laid out with mature native woodland trees and partly with more recently planted mixed woodland.

At the rear of the property is a large paved terrace with path out through the well stocked orchard area leading to the more informal area of garden.

The layout with mature trees offers a high degree of privacy to the property enabling the new owner to develop a woodland wildlife area or if required, remove some trees to establish a more equestrian type property, with ample scope to allow erection of stables.

The house is set back from the quiet road by a front garden planted with mature roses and a large mature walnut tree after which the house is named.

Located within the large area of grounds to the rear of the property is a secluded outbuilding and breeze house with fitted fireplace/barbeque.

The extensive nature of the grounds is an extremely unusual feature for a modern village property and the grounds are fully enclosed by fencing.

Where? Belchamp St Paul is an attractive large village lying about 6 miles to the west of Sudbury and within easy access of the small Essex Suffolk border town of Clare. There is easy access from the property out towards Braintree, the A120 and on towards Stansted and the M11. For those wishing to commute to London it is feasible to drive south to Witham or Kelvedon or to travel into Liverpool Street from Braintree station.

Belchamp St Paul is one of three villages which lie on high ground just to the south of the river Stour situated within Essex but connecting simply to Suffolk via Clare, Long Melford or Sudbury. The village is unusual in that it has a large village green, attractive thatched pub, thriving village hall constructed by American Airmen at the end of the second world war and the village also has a highly regarded primary school. Excellent local facilities are available in the small market town of Clare and more extensive facilities including Waitrose, Sainsburys, and Tesco are available in Sudbury, about 5 miles distant.
