THE LOCATION
Long Melford is an historic village, which contains a wealth of fine period houses and cottages along its High Street, one of the longest in England. It has an excellent range of facilities including a doctor's surgery, primary school, many pubs and restaurants and a good range of shops. The nearby market town of Sudbury and historic Bury St. Edmunds to the north each provide a further range of facilities, together with road and rail connections to London and the surrounding area. The house is set near the end of Bull Lane around half a mile from the main street, which is within easy walking distance. There is countryside to the rear and opposite.

THE PROPERTY
Swallowfield is a semi-detached house probably built around the mid 20th Century with rendered brick elevations under a traditional clay tiled roof, with wooden windows. The interior requires complete updating and modernisation and there is potential to extend at the rear, perhaps on two floors, subject to the normal planning consents. A real feature of the house is the long gardens and there is vehicular access along the tarmac bridleway to the side leading round to the rear where there is presently a large carport. There is a real open fireplace in the sitting room, which has a traditional oak beamed ceiling. There is gas fired central heating.
