THE LOCATION
Acton is a popular village set around three miles from the market town of Sudbury, and within very easy reach of the historic villages of Long Melford and Lavenham. It has a village hall, primary school and small local shop, and a good sense of community. Nearby Lavenham and Long Melford provide further local facilities and the market town of Sudbury has a fine range of shops, schools, recreational facilities and a station with main line rail connections through to the London and Colchester line. The surrounding area contains some charming countryside and has easy access through to Bury St Edmunds, Colchester, Ipswich and down towards London and the A12.

THE PROPERTY
The property comprises a large, much improved and well appointed detached chalet bungalow, together with mature gardens and a substantial industrial workshop, with a long established use as a thriving garage. The house has been enlarged and completely modernised by the present owners and is finished to a high standard with bright rooms and flexible accommodation giving as many as five bedrooms. The gardens are very nicely landscaped which includes a large Koi pond and are well screened from the garage. There is an in and out drive to the front with large parking forecourt and separate drive down alongside the house leading to a further courtyard in front of the unit. This is fully fitted out as a motor vehicle garage and has been operated as the White Lodge Garage for many years by the present and previous owners.
