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. Ropers Lane is on the outskirts of the village, just past the famous Maltings and is a private unmade road containing just a small number of houses and bungalows. It is tucked right away from through traffic.

THE PROPERTY
The house was built around two years ago by well-regarded local builders, Flintfield Homes. It is of traditional construction and style with rendered elevations and a high tiled roof. The interior has bright rooms and the house has been lightly occupied since it was new. To the side is a driveway providing good parking for two or possibly three cars and to the rear is a very well-screened and beautifully landscaped garden.
