THE LOCATION
Lavenham is widely regarded as one of the best preserved medieval wool villages in England. It contains an absolute wealth of period houses and cottages centred round a fine Guildhall square and there is a magnificent parish church overlooking the village. Lavenham offers an unusually good range of shops, which include a Co-operative store, post office, pharmacy and butcher. There are several restaurants and public houses and a number of local clubs and associations. The nearby market town of Sudbury to the south and historic Bury St. Edmunds to the north, each provide a much wider range of facilities together with good road and rail connections to the surrounding area. Green Willows is a cul-de-sac of semi-detached and detached houses on the outskirts of the village, popular with families and within walking distance of the village hall, school and the High Street.

THE PROPERTY
5 Green Willows is a mature detached house built with traditional cavity brick walls and a tiled roof. The windows and outside doors have been upgraded with uPVC wide gap double glazed units with internal glazing bars in Georgian style. There is full gas fired central heating and the interior has been upgraded with a good bright fitted kitchen and modern bathroom and cloakroom sanitary ware. To the side is a garage and parking and a particular feature of the house is its unusually wide and long garden, which would allow the property to be extended to the side and/or rear.
