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. The cottage is situated at the far end of the High Street, just away from the busy tourist area but within a moment's walk of the shops and centre. It is back from the road on a corner with a small green alongside.

THE PROPERTY
67 High Street was built in 1839, the dawn of the Victorian era, of traditional soft red bricks and a clay tiled roof. In recent years the house has had a two storey extension added to the rear and now provides surprisingly spacious accommodation. The present owners have just refurbished the property to an exceptionally high standard, combining sensitive restoration of many original features with the addition of a contemporary shaker kitchen and superbly appointed bathroom. There is a particularly fine exposed red brick chimney breast with arched fireplace, now fitted with a woodburner, and on the staircase and landing the wonderful original brick and flint wall structure has been exposed as a feature. There are some exposed beams but the interior is bright and not oppressive and upstairs are three bedrooms and the bathroom. The windows are uPVC or double glazed units but very much in traditional style with glazing bars and modern gas fired central heating is provided. To the rear is a modest but sunny garden with nice old walls on either side, fully landscaped for easy maintenance and with pedestrian access out to Spring Street.
