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 Lavenham 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 and two small 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 doctor's surgery. Ropers Court was created by the redevelopment of an historic Lavenham Mill. It is reached through an archway and contains a mixture of very desirable houses and cottages and just two flats.

THE PROPERTY
The apartment is contained in one of the original red brick mill buildings and was converted around 35 years ago. It has very good sized rooms with wonderful high ceilings and large windows giving lots of natural light. There is a large sitting room and a large separate kitchen/dining room which has just been refitted. There are two generous double bedrooms and a bathroom just refitted as a luxury shower room. There is gas fired central heating and secondary glazing throughout. The property is leasehold but with the advantage of a low ground rent and no regular service charge. Lavenham has very few flats and apartments, particularly in the village centre and they rarely come onto the market.
