Leavenheath is a pleasant village set close to the Suffolk/Essex borders, midway between the market town of Sudbury and historic Colchester. The surrounding area contains much delightful countryside with many other pleasant villages. Sudbury offers a good range of shops, schooling and recreational facilities, the many clubs and associations including rugby, football, cricket, bowls, tennis and rowing. Colchester itself offers extensive amenities, together with fast trains through to Londons Liverpool Street and road links by the A12 to the M25 and the surrounding area. Sweet Briar Close is a cul-de-sac of mainly detached bungalows away from the main Colchester road in a quiet residential area. No. 20 has the advantage of being at the end of a private drive spur, giving particular privacy and extensive private parking.
The bungalow is built of traditional masonry construction with an attractive brick and roof tile and the windows are a mixture of traditional white painted wood and uPVC, all with sealed double glazing. The present owners have substantially upgraded the property in recent years, with a superb solid oak fronted fitted kitchen, two beautiful bathrooms and a large heated conservatory. There is a detached double garage and a further brick building (previously a garage) now converted to provide a fully equipped utility room and home office. A particular feature of the property is its extraordinarily large garden, very nicely laid out and surprisingly unoverlooked.

DRIVEWAY AND GARDENS
Driveway and Front Garden The bungalow is located at the end of a private hammerhead leading to just three properties. There is an extensive tarmacadam and block paved driveway providing parking for numerous cars, both on the drive itself and in front of the former garage (now utility room and office) and current double garage. The drive is 77 (3m) long. To the right of the drive (opposite the bungalow) is a lawn with conifer hedge screen and at the end a bark chipping flower border with hedgerow beyond. In front of the house are further lawns with pathways up to gates on either side of the bungalow around to the rear. Adjacent to the double garage is a lean-to store for storage of bins etc. There is also a paved path giving access onto The High Road.
The Main Garden The garden is almost certainly the largest on the development, measuring around 125 wide x 62 deep (38m x 19m). It is superbly laid out with many different areas. To the rear of the house and well screened is a large flagstone terrace with a picket fence all around, water tap connected, giving an extensive seating area and with the covered store behind the garage handily close by. This opens out onto the main lawn with a double width path all round the conservatory, surrounded by sleeper edged flower borders, with a variety of plants, shrubs and trees. To the left is an extensive vegetable garden with raised sleeper edged beds, fruit cage and timber greenhouse. On the other side is an extensive area with sleeper edging and chipped bark containing more plants and shrubs and with flagstone step path to plenty of further seating. In the far corner is the timber shed. The garden is remarkably unoverlooked for a house in the village. Overall plot 125 x 120 (38m x 36.5m).
