THE LOCATION
Lavenham is often described as one of England's finest preserved medieval villages. With its fortunes arising from the wool cloth trade in the 15th and 16th Centuries, the village has a magnificent parish church and a wonderful selection of ancient houses and cottages dating from Tudor timber buildings through the Georgian period to the Victorian era. Today Lavenham is a vibrant village with a most active community and a useful range of shops including a butcher, pharmacy with post office counter, bakery, traditional grocer's store, newsagents and two useful Co-op supermarkets. There are also a number of interesting shops and galleries and several fine public houses and restaurants - not for nothing is it called the eating capital of Suffolk. There is a well regarded primary school and a doctor's surgery. Bolton Street is a much favoured setting, tucked away in the heart of the village and No.16 is tucked away at the bottom of the hill, on the corner with Lower Road, close to open countryside, once the house of the village doctor.

THE PROPERTY
16 Bolton Street is Listed Grade II of being of architectural and historical importance. It is one of Lavenham's fine timbered houses, finished outside with rendered elevations and a mellow clay tiled roof. It offers surprisingly good sized accommodation and to the rear is a most attractive south facing garden with summerhouse, backing on to an unused water meadow. There are many exposed timbers, two fine inglenook fireplaces and the kitchen has a four oven Aga. Upstairs there are two generous double bedrooms, each with good sized head height and full bathrooms. One end can be closed off as a guest suite or for bed & breakfast accommodation. The house has recently been professionally redecorated outside and is in excellent decorative order inside.

LISTED BUILDING CONSENT
Listed Building Consent has been obtained for the enlargement and conversion of the existing snug/garden room into a larger breakfast room/garden room with French doors out to the garden. Just the final inspection fee and building regulations details are to be finalised - please ask the agent for more details.
