THE LOCATION

The property is midway between the small villages of Edwardstone and Groton, set in lovely countryside midway between the market towns of Sudbury and Hadleigh. The popular village of Boxford is around 1 ½ miles to the south, with a well regarded primary school, village hall, two pubs, doctor's surgery and local shops. Hadleigh and Sudbury offer a great range of shops, schools and facilities and other villages nearby include historic Lavenham. There are connections to London's Liverpool Street from Colchester or Marks Tey. The house is in a small group of properties along a country lane, with larger detached houses opposite and wonderful views over open fields to the rear. 1 Groton Street is quite literally the last house in the village and enjoys panoramic views to the side and rear over open countryside.

THE PROPERTY

1 Groton Street was originally built as a semi detached local authority house with cavity brick walls and a clay pantiled roof. A very substantial two-storey extension has been added to the side in matching cavity brick and tiles, together with a large conservatory at the rear. There are uPVC replacement windows and doors and oil fired central heating is provided with the boiler replaced only a few weeks ago. The house has an unusually wide side vehicular access which runs right down to the end of the long garden where there are a group of garage buildings. The house would be ideal for those with a large van, trailer, caravan, motor home etc. The interior provides bright and spacious accommodation designed so that one part of the ground floor can be used as a self-contained annexe if required, ideal for an older relative.
