THE LOCATION
Beggars End is set just outside the popular village of Bulmer, only a short drive from the market town of Sudbury. Finch Hill contains a small group of period houses and cottages, otherwise surrounded by open farmland. Sudbury provides an excellent range of shops, schooling and recreational facilities together with a station which has shuttle trains linking through to London's Liverpool Street. In the other direction is Halstead and Braintree, the latter with a station and connections by the A120 through to the M11 down to London. The surrounding area contains many other delightful villages and open countryside.

THE PROPERTY
Beggars End began life as a pair of nineteenth century cottages. Later combined as one, the house has been extended on two floors at the back and now provides a spacious family home with a good balance of accommodation upstairs and downstairs. It is finished with rendered elevations under a mellow clay tiled roof with oak woodgrain uPVC wide gap double glazed windows all around. Interior is superbly presented with a traditional country kitchen and range cooker (included) and very good sized sitting room and dining rooms. There are five bedrooms upstairs with two en suite shower rooms and a family bathroom. There is a good sized garden at the far end of which is a large parking area and a well built detached double garage plus further useful storage building.
