Dating back to the 1920s, The Orchard is an impressive detached family house with superb established grounds close to Newmarket town centre and within easy reach of Cambridge.

Extending to 3,622 sq ft, the property has been fully renovated to a high standard by the owners.

On the market with Jackson-Stops, The Orchard occupies a sought-after and quiet residential location in Crockfords Road, within walking distance of the High Street, railway station, Tattersalls sales rooms and the town’s amenities.

The light and spacious accommodation offers 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, an integrated kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and larder and ground-floor cloakroom.

On the first floor, the spacious double-aspect main 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 which could be a fifth bedroom. The large loft space is partly boarded.

Gravel paths and wooden gates to both sides of the house provide access to the landscaped south-facing rear garden.
