The Property
The Old Bell House is a deceptively spacious period house with a garden enjoying river frontage to the Lee Brook in this sought after Suffolk village.

Believed to date back to 1850 and run as a pub in 1873, this attractive detached property has brick, flint and rendered elevations under a pantiled roof, with composite double glazing and oil fired central heating. Arranged over two floors, the accommodation incorporates a welcoming entrance hall with a window to the side, exposed timbers and stairs to the first floor, three reception rooms, study, kitchen, utility room, shower/cloakroom, landing, four bedrooms and family bathroom.

The double aspect drawing room has windows to the front and side, sealed fireplace, picture rail and ceiling mounted spotlights. The generously sized sitting room has windows to the front, brick fireplace and fitted display shelves. The inner hall/study has a window to the side. The dining room enjoys views over the garden with concertina doors to the terrace and an opening to the kitchen. The spacious kitchen has three windows to the side, fitted base and eye level units, granite effect worktops with upstands, stainless steel sink with drainer, integrated appliances including Rangemaster cooker with five ring hob, two ovens, grill and extractor hood, fridge and freezer, space for separate upright fridge/freezer, tiled floor and recessed ceiling downlights. The good sized utility room has a window to the rear and stable style door to outside, space for a dishwasher, stainless steel sink with drainer and built-in boiler cupboard. A useful shower/cloakroom is located off the inner hall with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, walk-in shower cubicle, pedestal wash basin, wc, tiled floor and extractor fan.

The landing has a window to the rear and built-in cupboard. There are four double bedrooms to the first floor, with a built-in wardrobe to one and a good sized family bathroom.

Outside
The Old Bell House is approached over a block paved driveway to the side, with a five bar wooden gate providing access to a gravel driveway providing parking for several vehicles and access to the house, garage and garden. The double garage has an electric roller door to the front and garden store to the side. The established garden enjoys river frontage and is mainly laid to lawn with specimen trees and greenhouse. A large block paved terrace is located to the rear and side of the house with outside lighting and a water tap.

The Location
Approximately six miles north-east of Newmarket on the Cambridgeshire/Suffolk border, The Old Bell House is situated close to the centre of the unspoilt village of Freckenham. Largely surrounded by farmland, the village has a public house, village hall and church. Chippenham Fen, a national nature reserve and the popular La Hogue Farm Shop and Café are located just outside the neighbouring village of Chippenham. The nearby towns of Newmarket, Ely and Bury St Edmunds offer a wide range of local facilities including shopping, hotels, restaurants, schools and leisure facilities, with health clubs, swimming pools and golf clubs. Cambridge is approximately eighteen miles away and has excellent schools, shopping and other facilities. There is easy access to the A14, A11 and M11 and via these to the national road network. There is a branch line connection from Newmarket to Cambridge and Ipswich. Cambridge, Ely, Audley End and Whittlesford offer direct rail lines into London, with the fastest trains taking under one hour. Stansted International Airport is approximately an hour's drive.
