General information With it's origins dating back to the 1400's and offering 1,400 sq.ft. of accommodation, this well-presented and stylish character home offers a mix of modern comforts and old world charm. The rear garden is designed in a cottage style with two terraces plus clear views of Lavenham's church spire. Lavenham is often referred to as one of England's best preserved Medieval villages which prospered from the wool trade in the 15th and 16th centuries. More recently the village was featured in the famous Harry Potter film series and the local Great House and Restaurant has an excellent reputation for fine dining.

Steps from Church Street lead up to the main front door set beneath a storm porch where a heavy timber door opens and leads into a long characterful entrance hall with wood floor, beams and built-in storage. The sitting room, set to the front, is a heavily timbered dual aspect room with open fireplace plus a range of fitted book shelving to one end of the room where stairs rise to the first floor. Situated to the rear is a bright and welcoming dining room with wood floor and an impressive open fireplace with wood burning stove inset plus and a glazed door leading out to a patio terrace surrounded with flower borders, ideal for alfresco dining. Beyond the dining room is a bright and well organised kitchen with granite work tops and white shaker-style wall and base units plus integrated eye-level oven, hob and dishwasher. There is also a useful built-in larder space and a door out to the rear garden. The cloakroom concludes the ground floor and is composed of a wc, with concealed cistern, wash hand basin plus window to the rear.

Stairs rise from the sitting room to a generous first floor landing with attractive stained glass window, exposed timbers and built-in airing cupboard. To the front of the house lies the main bedroom, a good size room with exposed wall and ceiling timbers, inset downlights and a range of fitted bedroom furniture. There is a generous

walk-in wardrobe and accompanying en-suite shower room including a vanity wash hand basin with a good range of storage beneath.

At the rear of the house the second bedroom can be found, another good size room with a window overlooking the patio terrace. Bedroom three, also a double bedroom, has built-in storage and exposed brickwork from the chimney breast. The main bathroom has tiled surrounds and includes a panel enclosed bath with wall mounted shower and splash screen.

The outside property is a block-paved patio terrace with established flower borders and enjoying views to the far end of the garden. A block-paved pathway extends away from the house to a further circular patio terrace set in the shade of a tree with established flower borders. The pathway continues round to the entrance to a detached concrete garage, now currently utilised as additional storage. The vendor has pointed out that there is a dropped kerb in Tenter Piece which allowed access to the garage. In more recent years the vendor has opted to have the gates removed and a fence erected in its place. Gates could potentially be re-installed and the garage possibly demolished to make way for secure off road parking or possibly erect a new garage/cartlodge in place of existing garage, subject to the usual planning consents.

The majority of the gardens are then set to lawn with established flower borders and an attractive seating area at the far end of the garden enjoys views back to the house plus clear views of Lavenham's Church spire.
