Tenure: FreeholdTHE LOCATION
Lavenham is perhaps one of Englands finest preserved medieval weaving villages and contains a wealth of period houses and cottages at its centre. With its wealth founded on the prosperous wool and weaving trade, the village forebears constructed a magnificent parish church dominating the village and a fine medieval guildhall occupying one whole side of the market place, now in the care of the National Trust. There are many fine Tudor, Georgian and Victorian buildings of all sizes. The village is a desirable place to live, providing an unusual number of shops for everyday use, which include a butchers, bakers, traditional grocer, pharmacy, post office and Co-operative store. There are a number of shops and galleries and several public houses and well-regarded restaurants. The surrounding area contains many other attractive villages and the nearby market town of Sudbury provides further amenities, many clubs and associations and a station providing shuttle trains through to the main London to Colchester line. To the north is the cathedral town of Bury St. Edmunds with a Regency Theatre and links by the A14 to Cambridge, the East Coast and the M11 motorway. Green Willows is a pleasant and mature cul-de-sac set just outside the village and built in around 1975. Willow House has the particular advantage of being the last house at the end of the cul-de-sac.
Willow House is a traditional property built with cavity brick walls under a tiled roof. It now has modern uPVC double glazed windows with internal glazing bars and uPVC front and rear doors. To the rear is an outstanding heated conservatory, which takes advantage of the spectacular views over open fields. There are mature and nicely stocked gardens to the front, side and rear.
