THE LOCATION

Bures is an attractive village straddling the Essex/Suffolk borders, containing a delightful mixture of period and modern houses and cottages near the River Stour. There is a local delicatessen, newsagents, primary school, playing field, community centre and two public houses. Bures Station provides shuttle trains through to Marks Tey with direct connections on to London's Liverpool Street. There are also bus services to Colchester and Sudbury. The surrounding area of the Stour Valley contains delightful countryside and many other pretty villages. Within easy reach is the market town of Sudbury, which provides a good range of shops, schooling and recreational facilities and Colchester with multiple amenities and links to the A12.

THE PROPERTY

Charnwood is an individual detached house built with traditional dark red brick walls and clay tiled roof. There are traditional wooden windows with sealed double glazed panes and gas fired central heating is provided. The interior is well presented with modern contemporary kitchen and excellent décor. There is an integral double garage which could perhaps be converted into further accommodation as there is room for more parking or a cart lodge garage to one side of the house. The house was constructed with a view to adding further accommodation on the second floor as the roof space is fully open in readiness. To the front is a driveway providing good parking and there are gardens on three sides, Bures Station lies behind with its single track branch line just carrying hourly shuttle trains through to the main London and Colchester line at Marks Tey.
