THE LOCATION
Long Melford is an historic thriving village in one of the most desirable places to live in Suffolk. Indeed, it has ranked one of the top ten villages to live in England. It has a wealth of period houses and cottages of all ages and types running along its main street, which is the longest in England. There are a wealth of shops including two supermarkets, a bakery, renowned butchers, post office and pharmacy, together with many specialist shops and galleries. There is a successful primary school, doctor's surgery, village hall and clubs for cricket and football, all within easy walking distance of this property. At the northern end of the village are historic Melford and Kentwell Halls and the magnificent parish church overlooking the famous greens. There are numerous public houses and restaurants, again, all within walking distance.

LIST HOUSE
List House is believed to date from the 14th/15th century, but today is largely Georgian in appearance and style. The front elevation is constructed of traditional Suffolk white bricks under a slate roof, with red brick to the side and there are two handsome door cases to the front and double hung sash windows all around. There is unrestricted on-street parking outside. The interior of the flat has large and bright rooms, the sitting room being at the front, getting wonderful morning and midday sun, and looking out at period cottages opposite. There is a private entrance door and staircase and an exceptionally large landing. Heating is currently by a mixture of night storage heaters and modern programmable electric radiators but gas is laid on to the flat, presently supplying the sitting room fire, but enabling central heating to be installed if desired. Fitted carpets throughout are included and the flat is in good decorative order with curtains and blinds and is ready for immediate occupation.
