    £720,000: four-bedroom detached house in Sudbury, Suffolk

The charming four-bedroom property belonging to Queen of crimewriting Ruth Rendell has views over open countryside in an area of outstanding beauty in Suffolk.

“I have been the owner of The Old Forge at Groton for almost exactly 10 years,” says the Baroness. “It was the view from the back of the house that helped me make up my mind to buy it; a panorama over the fields and hills, a house dotted here and there, but mostly beautiful green spaces, winding lanes and great trees. It has been a pleasure to live in.”

The detached house is believed to be 150 years old and includes a forge converted into a reception room and gym.
