THE LOCATION

Foxearth is a very pretty and highly regarded village on the Essex/Suffolk border in the Stour Valley. It has an attractive mixture of houses and cottages of all ages and at its centre used to be a small 19th Century brewery and associated buildings (now houses). Much of the architecture in the village is in traditional soft red brick as well as a number of historic listed timbered properties. This feature perhaps typifies the village. Very close by is the much favoured and historic village of Long Melford, which offers an excellent range of local shops and a number of restaurants, public houses, galleries and antique shops. There is also a doctor's surgery and a well-regarded Church of England primary school. The market town of Sudbury is around four miles away offering an excellent range of facilities, together with trains linking through to the main London to Colchester line at Marks Tey. Claypits Lane is a no through lane leading off from the centre of the village and the house is a short distance along on the left.

THE PROPERTY

Foxgloves is an individual house built by a renowned local builder David Brown in 2012.
