THE LOCATION
Lavenham is often described as one of England's finest preserved medieval villages. With its fortunes arising from the wool 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 the village is very vibrant with a most active community and useful range of shops including a butcher, pharmacy, bakery, traditional grocer's store and two modern co-ops. There are also a number of interesting shops and galleries and several fine public houses and restaurants. There is a primary school and a modern doctor's surgery. The High Street runs through the village and the property is set right at the far end, in easy walking distance of the centre but missing out on the busy tourist shopping traffic. The house is set back from the road with a wide pavement and there is usually on-street parking (unrestricted) available outside in this row.

THE PROPERTY
The house is Listed Grade II as of architectural and historical importance and it is believed that it once formed part of a large hall or manor house just outside the village centre - the adjacent property reveals more clearly the age of the building, as does the presence of a fine crown post in the roof. Today it appears more 19th century painted and rendered brick and timber walls under a high clay pantiled roof with large bargeboards and tall red brick chimneys. The interior is very light and airy and in contemporary style with high ceilings and big rooms. There is already an excellent shaker kitchen but listed building consent has been granted to remove the existing rear lobby and cloakroom and turn the kitchen into a large new vaulted room with bi-fold doors at the end looking down the garden. The cloakroom would be re-located and there can also be some changes made to the bathroom layout. Please ask the agents for full details. There is a delightful garden, beautifully stocked with a variety of plants and at the far end is a newly added summer house, fully plastered out and lined and insulated and with power and double glazing! The garden has pedestrian access in from the side passage.
