Beautifully presented and substantial family house with attractive established grounds in a sought-after area within walking distance of Newmarket Town Centre and train station.
Dating back to the 1920s, The Orchard is an impressive detached family house with superb established grounds within easy reach of the town centre. Extending to approximately 3,622 sq ft, the property has been fully renovated to a high standard by the existing vendors and has rendered elevations over a painted brick plinth under a peg tiled roof. The light and spacious accommodation boasts a wealth of attractive period features including bay windows, high ceilings, open fireplaces, cornicing and an impressive oak panelled staircase believed to have come from the famous Cheveley Park Mansion. The property has a welcoming reception hall, inner hall and dining room, four generously sized reception rooms, garden room/studio, superb integrated kitchen/breakfast room, useful utility room and larder and well finished cloakroom.
The spacious double aspect master bedroom enjoys views over the garden and has a large en suite bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a dressing room/bedroom five. The large loft space is partly boarded.
The Orchard is approached through a pillared entrance leading to a gravel driveway providing parking and turning for several vehicles and access to the detached garage, studio and grounds. The garage has an electric up and over door to the front, window and pedestrian door to the rear. Screened from Crockfords Road, the inviting gardens and grounds are a particular feature of the property, extending to about 0.67 acres (sts) in all. A well maintained lawn can be found to the front of the house, with well stocked shrub beds, outside lighting and water tap. Gravel paths and wooden pedestrian gates to both sides of the house provide access to the superb south facing rear garden. The attractive and private landscaped gardens are largely to the rear of the house and predominately laid to lawn with several mature specimen trees and shrubs. A large paved terrace adjoins the rear of the property with a delightful water feature, outside lighting and water tap. To the rear of the garden, a five bar wooden gate leads to a sheltered orchard. A useful studio is located to the side of the house with windows to the front and side, pedestrian door to the front and electric wall heater.
