South View is a substantial Victorian property in Newmarket, located in an unparalleled location backing onto the Long Hill racehorse training grounds with a detached cottage and landscaped garden.

Believed to date from the late 19th century, the property is constructed of brick elevations under a slate roof and retains many period features including bay and sash windows, open fireplaces and high ceilings. 

Accommodation is arranged over three floors (plus cellar) with principal bedrooms and reception rooms benefiting from a south-easterly aspect. There is a lift shaft from the ground to the first floors, which is currently out-of-service. The house offers plenty of scope for modernisation, while the three bedroom cottage is available by separate negotiation.
