THE LOCATION
The countryside between Sudbury and Bures running south along the Stour Valley is amongst the most attractive in the county. Small lanes lead up the sides of the valley and the property is located right at the top, with spectacular westerly facing views right out across the valley itself, giving spectacular sunsets on the horizon. Workhouse Green is a small hamlet containing a mixture of houses, bungalows and cottages and this part of Upper Road sees them widely spaced out in large plots. The location is also favoured because of its easy accessibility to Sudbury and south to Bures (3 miles) with its station giving shuttle trains through to the main London and Colchester line, with services on to Liverpool Street. Many people also travel straight into Colchester to pick up direct services for the City. Sudbury is a thriving market town with a good range of shops, schools and many recreational facilities. Bures has a great sense of community, a thriving village hall and a good local primary school.

THE PROPERTY
Little Fold is a surprisingly large detached bungalow, which has been the subject of a large extension and major improvement and refurbishment in recent years.
