If you're looking for a house you can move straight into in the middle of Constable Country, then look no further.

Bedford House is an immaculately presented, four-bedroom, detached property in the popular village of Stoke-by-Nayland, near Hadleigh, which has come up for sale at a guide price of £675,000. 

The property is believed to have been built in the 1930s, with a 2017 two-storey extension increasing the size of the kitchen/dining room and adding a double bedroom. 

Selling agent Chapman Stickels said: “The completed addition has resulted in a well-proportioned and contemporary family home which has much appeal.” 

On the ground floor there’s an entrance hall with quarry tiled flooring. To the left of the hallway is the contemporary open-plan kitchen/breakfast/dining room.

There’s light oak flooring throughout the space. Bi-fold doors lead from the dining area to the rear patio area. 

To the right of the hallway is the sitting room, where there’s oak flooring and a feature fireplace with a sandstone surround.

Upstairs, there’s a central landing area with storage cupboard. The landing leads to all four bedrooms and the family bathroom. 

The large, twin-aspect bedrooms at either end of the house, and bedroom three, overlook the village’s recreation ground. The fourth bedroom overlooks the rear garden.
