THE LOCATION
Long Melford is an historic village containing one of the longest High Streets in the East of England. Recently voted the 12th best village in England, it offers an excellent community with a surprising range of facilities. There is a good primary school, doctor's surgery, cricket and football clubs and a wide variety of other organisations. There is a useful range of shops, including two good butchers, a Co-operative store, award winning bakery/patisserie and an unusual number of antiques shops, galleries and other interesting shops. There are a number of public houses and restaurants and lovely walks all around, including down alongside the river and water meadows. Its great Parish Church is one of the finest in Suffolk and there are two magnificent Elizabethan country houses, Melford Hall and Kentwell Hall, which host various events and activities throughout the year. The Limes is a quiet and much favoured cul-de-sac tucked in behind the main street away from through traffic. At one end is a walkway, which cuts through in only a moment to the main street with all the shops etc. The well-regarded Long Melford doctor's surgery and primary school are both also within only a very short level walk.

THE PROPERTY
The house was built around 28 years ago and is of traditional masonry construction rather than the more lightweight timber frame now common these days. Recent updates include the installation of mahogany woodgrain uPVC windows and an impressive new light fitted kitchen and modern bathroom. There is a brand new gas boiler supplying the central heating. There is a garage plus further parking to the front and plenty of potential to create additional parking using part of the garden (the next door property has done this).
