THE LOCATION
Brent Eleigh is a charming small village set in the Brett Valley, only two miles from the wonderful historic village of Lavenham. Many years ago the Hadleigh road was re-routed and the little High Street is now a no-through road, away from through traffic. There is a church, a tiny pub and a delightful selection of period houses and cottages. The property is one of a pair built near the end of the street, in Victorian style to reflect the 19th Century property opposite. Lavenham provides an excellent range of local shops, a doctor's surgery, many restaurants, public houses and interesting galleries. The market towns of Sudbury and Hadleigh are within easy driving distance, together with Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket, the latter with good services through to London's Liverpool Street. Behind the house is a small meadow and opposite a wooded spinney.

THE PROPERTY
The cottage is one of a pair built by award winning Suffolk builders Ellisdales in traditional Victorian style. The walls are in red brick with chamfered plinths under a real slate roof with many architectural details of the period, including bargeboards, a fleur de lys ridge piece and attractive timber porch. The windows are traditional wood with double glazing, a mixture of sashes and casements. There is particularly good sized accommodation downstairs, including a lovely kitchen/dining/garden room, which looks out onto the garden and catches the sun. There is a driveway to the front providing good parking and beside the house is a detached garage with a useful utility room or office behind.
