THE LOCATION
Borley is a tiny village set in the northern tip of Essex, a mile from the River Stour which is just over the Suffolk border. There is a brick parish church, village green and small village hall, and a scattering of houses and cottages. Much wider facilities can be found in the historic village of Long Melford which is 1 ½ miles away and is famous for its High Street with lots of interesting shops and galleries and providing a doctor's surgery, and a primary school and the thriving market town of Sudbury (2 miles) is also within easy driving distance, with multiple shopping and recreational facilities and good schools. Connections to London Liverpool Street and Colchester/Ipswich can be reached from Sudbury station via a link line to Marks Tey, or by direct services from Braintree (approx. 15 miles). The surrounding area contains many other lovely villages such as the Belchamps, Cavendish, Clare and medieval Lavenham.

THE PROPERTY
Crossland is a mature detached bungalow set well back from the road in a 160' plot with similar properties on either side. To the rear is a lovely meadow and opposite to the front are open fields with quite spectacular views out across the Stour Valley with Long Melford's magnificent parish church on the skyline. In recent years the owners have extended the bungalow across the back and it now provides roomy and bright accommodation, with high ceilings and an especially large window in the sitting room to take advantage of the view. There is a well fitted recent open plan kitchen/dining room, four bedrooms, bathroom and cloakroom. Modern oil fired central heating is provided (boiler 18 months old) and calor gas for cooking. The windows have been replaced with Permador traditional timber wide gap double glazed units. Planning consent was obtained in 2004 (still valid) for a loft conversion to provide three more bedrooms, bathroom and shower room.
