THE LOCATION
Knowl Green is a small hamlet just outside the popular and desirable village of Belchamp St Paul, set close to the Essex/Suffolk borders. There are just a scattering of houses and cottages but the main village offers a primary school, village hall, pub and a good sense of community. The surrounding area contains many other delightful villages including Clare, Cavendish, Long Melford and Castle Hedingham. The nearby market towns of Sudbury and Halstead provide a further range of shops, schooling and recreational facilities and one can drive south towards Braintree to pick up mainline trains for London and the A120 for the M11 and Stansted airport, or west to Haverhill and across to Cambridge and Newmarket. Knowles Cottage is set up and back from the road, surrounded by lovely mature gardens.

THE PROPERTY
Knowles Cottage is listed Grade II as being of architectural and historical importance. It is built on a traditional oak frame with two good inglenook fireplaces and a straw thatched roof which was replaced completely in November 2016. The owners added a new extension to the rear in 2010/11 which is built with traditional painted weather board elevations under a clay tiled roof. There are wooden windows throughout and in the original part some horizontal sliding sash windows, a distinctive feature of the region. There are two bedrooms upstairs in the original cottage and the extension houses a third bedroom with its own shower room and a new bathroom for the house. Also added has been a substantial garage block which was built with a view to being used as a home office/studio or even an annexe and has a new shower/cloakroom. There are lovely mature gardens to both front and rear, well screened by mature hedges and shrubs. The country kitchen has an oil fired Rayburn range, which also powers full central heating and hot water.
