VIRTUAL TOUR AVAILABLE - Versatile character detached period property with stunning gardens and separate studio building. Dating back to 1860 this property is of brick construction under a slate roof and was converted from the former coach house and stables of the Rectory in 1986. It has been much improved and updated by the current vendor, with new soffits, fascias, double glazed UPVC doors and windows, and a spectacular conservatory making the most of the South West facing garden. The property has the two entrances, and the layout of the ground floor lends itself to creating an annexe (the current utility could become a separate kitchen) or using as it is with a large bedroom and en-suite on the ground floor. Also on the ground floor is the kitchen, study and lounge. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom.
A particular feature of this property is the high flint walls surrounding a prize winning garden.

Our latest reviews from allAgents

Absolutely outstanding service from both Anna-Marie and Andrew from start to finish, they kept us in the loop every week even during the Covid 19 pandemic, they were always there reassuring us and ensuring the sale and purchase went smoothly. They are two of the nicest people we have met and would highly recommended them to anyone.
Rosa De Simone | 7 July, 2020
I would have no hesitation in recommending Grant Berry. Throughout the whole process they have provided sound professional advice, backed up by detailed research of the local housing market. They followed up each viewing and gave us feedback and advice. Once we had secured a buyer they continued to drive the process in support of us and always kept us informed of the position of the prospective buyer. Much more than just professional advice and support was the emotional support we received at every stage and the excellent customer service.
Sue Chippington | 3 July, 2020
As if buying and selling a property isn’t stressful enough, add the country going into lockdown just as I completed my purchase, stress levels were through the roof. However, Grant Berry were there every step of the way offering their support and expertise, always at the end of the telephone and extremely professional. Observing social distancing when it came to delivering my keys on day of completion with a smile and gift, thank you for your support and I wish you all the very best going forward as we start to come out of this lockdown period.
Diane Unwin | 20 May, 2020
The most friendly, supportive and professional estate agents I have ever had the pleasure of instructing. House selling is stressful emotionally, physically and when you are a single parent, these things are even more so. Andrew Berry and his partner Anna-Marie Grant, could not have worked harder and been more committed to selling my house and provided me with the support I required all the time. A truly magnificent firm, professional, reliable, prompt, supportive, and a pleasure to work with.
Zoe Kirby | 13 May, 2020
Very pleasant experience. I bought and sold the house through Grant Berry, it was all very easy with their help. I would recommend them to everyone without any hesitation.
Alena Vachtova | 11 May, 2020
I purchased my house through Grant Berry. I am very pleased with the service provided by this agency. Andrew Berry was extremely helpful in all matters pertaining to the house purchase. Very helpful, courteous and always giving me updates on progress. He acted as a very good intermediary between myself and the seller and was instrumental in the successful purchase. Thoroughly recommended.
Alan Milne | 7 April, 2020
The team at Grant Berry have been friendly, responsive and professional throughout our house selling process. The effort taken by them to capture high quality photos really helped our property standout and attracted a large number of viewings. At every step of the process they have kept us well informed and in a timely manner. I highly recommend their services.
Daniel Rice | 1 March, 2020
Amazing service!! My flat was sold extremely quickly and at the asking price. Andrew was super helpful, friendly and quick throughout and I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better service. Highly recommend!
Isabel Ferreira | 20 February, 2020
I bought my house a few years ago through Grant Berry and when it was time to sell tecently I had no hesitation in using them to sell it! They are professional, personal and reliable too! Highly recommended
Vanessa Benton | 14 February, 2020
From our first meeting with Andrew through to the final key is being delivered we can only comment that the service was first class and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending Andrew and his team .
Nigel Lister | 13 February, 2020
I used Grant Berry to sell my late aunt\'s house in Newmarket. my aunt used them to sell her previous house And I know that she liked Andrew.I saw three firms. Andrew\'s knowledge and enthusiasm were obvious. He gave a higher valuation than the other 2 firms but was very confident in his valuation. We accepted an offer for the full asking price very quickly. their entire approach is fantastic and they excel in keeping the overall process moving, making sure that things are dealt with promptly by the right people and ensuring that communication is good. Brilliant.
James Tinworth | 9 February, 2020
Professional from start to finish and excellent feedback after property viewings. Wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone who was thinking of putting their house on the market.
Nicola Mitchell | 13 January, 2020
Excellent service throughout. They produced a very professional sales brochure with high quality photographs. The after sales service is also particularly good and this is important when the usual procedural hiccups occur.
Anna Cantillon | 3 December, 2019
Excellent service throughout. Andrew and Anna-Marie kept me up to date with throughout the process and sorted any issues promptly and efficiently. Thanks!
Kevin Gatland | 2 December, 2019
I wanted a quick sale, which was a tall order, but Grant Andrew did not disappoint. Not only did I get an excellent price for my flat, but with no set office hours, Andrew and Anna-Marie were on hand every step of the way. It was less than a week from the initial call to first viewing. When the first prospective buyer pulled out, Andrew had the next buyer through the door within 48 hours. The sale was not completely problem free, but there was constant communication between their offices, the buyers and myself. And they were brilliant at helping to find practical solutions when we hit snags. The added bonus, is they found a buyer who was happy to take on my tenant, reducing stress on all sides. House buying and selling is traditionally a difficult affair, but Grant Berry\'s professional attitude means a lot of the stress is taken out of the process. The following keywords and features fully encapsulate the service that Grant Berry provides: availability, excellent communications, courteous, quick response, well timed updates, realistic evaluation, knowledgeable, trustworthy, and the extra mile.
Lisa Chapman | 30 November, 2019
Grant Berry secured an offer on our property within two weeks of the advert going live. We had only had two viewings during a four month period with another estate agent and received no feed back. Andrew met with potential buyers and gave us immediate feedback on how the viewings went. Both Anna-Marie and Andrew were open and honest with how things were going throughout the sale; a stark contrast to the other estate agent we had previously used. They were very professional, took lots of photos that showed our home in the best possible light and marketed the property well.
Andy Willcox | 26 September, 2019
Grant Berry helped me sell my house this summer. I found them proficient and knowledgeable from the very first meeting. Expert marketing of the property along with a professional, friendly service makes it easy to recommend local estate agent.
Tracey Gwinnett | 24 September, 2019
We used Grant Berry to sell my deceased mothers property and received the most excellent service. Andrew met us, outlined very clearly how they would market it and the fees involved. It was STC within a week of being put up for sale. However, when that buyer pulled out it was again sold within a week with no fuss. We were kept up to date at all stages of the sale with nothing being too much trouble. I would absolutely recommend Grant Berry to any prospective sellers. SK
Sandra King | 13 September, 2019
Really positive experience purchasing a house with Grant Berry. They were able to arrange viewings around the times that suited us and once the price was agreed, they managed the process well. There were no heavy handed sales tactics that you sometimes come across with the chain estate agents, have previously bought property in London. We have recommended Grant Berry to friends who will be selling in the local area shortly.
Terry De Sousa | 12 September, 2019
Just a thoroughly professional outfit. Friendly, knowledgeable and incredibly helpful. Took time to answers our emails promptly. Helped us every step of the way.
Geppetto Price | 10 September, 2019
These guys have been unbelievably supportive throughout our quite difficult house purchase. They have chased a number of other agents, mortgage advisers and banks for us and haven\'t left us in the dark at all for the 4-5month process. On top of that they have been extremely friendly and reassuring, which sometimes in a professional atmosphere can be lost. Will always recommend to anyone that is buying in the area.
Joe | 28 August, 2019
Fantastic service, different to all the others and a breath of fresh air that made my first home purchase stress free!
Caroline Jordan | 17 August, 2019
Very, very impressed with the excellent service we received when buying our house through Grant Berry. Anna-Marie and Andrew made the experience feel very smooth and stress free. They were incredibly well organised and pro-active. They responding very swiftly to emails, kept up to date with developments, and made sure that messages that had been sent from one solicitor had been received by the other. It felt like they were doing everything they could to help make the purchase smooth and successful for all parties. Can\'t recommend them enough.
Robert Moir | 15 August, 2019
Andrew and Anna-Marie sold my property in just one week – after it had been on the market with a larger agent for over 8 months. It may have been just lucky, however the support along a very trying and arduous journey to completion was second to none. I cannot thank them enough for all their care and diplomacy when things were getting rather tough. The care and detail in the pictures and the marketing of the property far exceeded my expectations and their professional attitude and advice are unparalleled. Grant Berry is a very rare breed of agent who really cares about their clients - both selling and buying - in what is usually a major life decision to sell or buy a house.
