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 it 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 modern doctor's surgery. Barn Street is one of the quietest side roads in Lavenham and sees relatively little through traffic. It is a moment's walk from the Market Place or down to Water Street and the High Street. On both sides and opposite are attractive private houses, including the magnificent Old grammar School, one of Lavenham's finest Grade I listed medieval houses.

CONSTABLE COURT
The cottages have been created from the conversion of a small 19th century commercial building which for many years was a small brewery. In more recent times they were prestige offices and have now been converted into six high quality private properties. The other five are all sold and this is the one remaining building. It is built with traditional painted brick walls and uPVC double glazed replacement windows with a slate roof. The interior is beautifully presented with an excellent shaker kitchen with integrated appliances and there is a brand new bathroom and further cloakroom. There is one large open plan reception room with sitting, dining and kitchen areas and big windows on both sides, one facing south overlooking the courtyard garden giving fabulous natural light.

To the rear, reached through an archway alongside the cottages, is a private car park with two freehold parking spaces included in the sale. All the properties have been sold freehold and it is very important to note that there is no ongoing management or maintenance charge, other than a tiny contribution towards electricity for the car park light and a share of the costs for any future maintenance of the drive and car park.
