About the Area Bildeston is a thriving village set in the heart of the picturesque Suffolk countryside and close to the medieval Wool Towns including historic Lavenham.

Vendor´s Statement "We have lived in Bildeston for nearly 10 years and have loved every day. It is such a well-served village with some beautiful uninterrupted walks particularly along the river which we enjoy with our 2 dogs, sometimes walking as far as Wattisham and Hitcham. The village still has a village shop and lots of clubs which include a choir and both outside and indoor bowls clubs. There is a bus service which provides a service to the main towns Ipswich and Stowmarket with the bus stop being approximately 50 yards from the house.

What we have enjoyed most about the property has been the 'dog proof landscaped garden' which we have landscaped to include private sitting areas, productive vegetable garden, various fruit trees and a view to providing plenty of colour. Indeed we have planted over 60 rose bushes. Over the years we have extended the property and made many improvements including adding photovoltaic panels which have proved to be a real money saver. From the house we have always appreciated the wonderful view to the rear elevation over the meadow and fields, whilst the conservatory has proved a lovely room to sit, relax and enjoy the tranquillity. We wish the new owners (who will only be the third owners) of the property lots of happiness in this amazing property and village."
