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 unusual 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.
Number 1 Byes Barn is one of two properties created from the skilful conversion of an historic timbered granary barn. The interior contains a wealth of fine exposed oak timbers, with the first floor vaulted right up to the ridge. There is much natural light through large windows, most of which look out across the River Brett with open countryside beyond. The interior is beautifully finished with large rooms, an outstanding hardwood kitchen and a high standard of dιcor. There are excellent quality carpets, curtains, blinds and other fixtures that may be included, by separate negotiation. Across the road is a further parcel of land included in the freehold, which provides off-street parking and a charming small riverside terrace garden.
