General information

This attractive period house retains much of its original charm and character, with large inglenook fireplace to the sitting room and many other period features. The accommodation is well laid out with two good sized main reception rooms at the front of the house, and a third at the rear opening onto the west facing conservatory. There is a kitchen which is in need of some refurbishment, together with a ground floor cloakroom.

The first floor accommodation is approached up a straight flight of stairs leading to a good sized landing which serves the three bedrooms. The main bedroom with its en suite bathroom is located at the rear of the property along with the large family bathroom which is in need of some updating. From the landing there is a narrow staircase leading to an attic storage area.

A particular feature of the property is the good sized and attractive garden which is enclosed by walls and bounded by well stocked flower beds and with fruit trees and an attractive pond area.

The main reception rooms within the house are all of attractive proportions with many interesting period features and some exposed timbering.

The property fronts the quiet no through road section of Church Walk with access to one side to the garage. Adjoining the rear of the property is a most attractive enclosed garden which is laid out with a wide sweep of lawn surrounded by flower beds with semi mature fruit trees, well stocked flower and shrub borders and a small pond with rockery. The garden gives a superb aspect from the house and there is a gateway leading through to a further area of garden laid out with vegetable beds.

Close to the rear of the house is a brick built garden store shed.

Church Walk, Long Melford is one of the premier locations within this extremely attractive village with open views at the front out across The Green, the Almshouses and a lovely view up to Melford's remarkable parish church of cathedral like proportions. This location within the village has to be one of the most sought after, and Long Melford has become an extremely popular residential village with excellent day to day shopping facilities, a selection of village inns, restaurants and a range of interesting retail outlets.

The village has a well regarded doctors surgery, and still retains good bus service connections to both Bury St Edmunds to the north, and Sudbury and Colchester to the south.
