Water Street, Lavenham

Guide price £622,500 (SSTC)

The property is a wonderful early 20th Century timber framed house, with a painted brick lower wall to the front, finished with a traditional local rough cast render, under a clay tiled roof. The property is enhanced by the conversion of a range of rear outbuildings, which has helped to create the excellent and versatile accommodation on offer. The house has further been improved by the current vendor with the addition of secondary glazed windows, luxury fitted cabinets and shelving and a few individual stylish touches; it affords a bright and spacious interior whilst retaining the original features one would hope for from a house of this era. The gardens have been professionally designed to create a peaceful haven in which to relax and enjoy one’s surroundings and they complement the house beautifully.

The accommodation, in brief, comprises: reception hall (13'3" x 12'6") with exposed oak floorboards, stairs rising to first floor and down to basement level, doors off. The generous and versatile study (13'6" x 12'3") is beautifully fitted with an excellent range of bespoke Neville Johnson units and shelving. The addition of the log burning stove creates a charming atmosphere to this homely room. A door leads to the light and bright kitchen dining room (27' x 11'5"), the heart of the house and an ideal area in which to relax or entertain. The kitchen area is fitted with cream shaker style base and wall units, complemented with granite worktops, butler sink and a central island unit. Stainless steel dual fuel range cooker, integral dishwasher, fridge and freezer. An opening leads to the magnificent vaulted sitting room (28'1" x 10'11") with fine timber cross beams and glazed French doors and windows which overlook the garden. To the rear of the property is a well-presented shower room and separate dressing room/fourth bedroom (11'8" x 10'11").

The excellent basement comprises a well-designed utility room and a games / family / gym area, which again benefits from further storage cupboards.

The first floor landing gives access to all three double bedrooms (14'1" x 11'5", 14'2" x 9'1" and 12'4" x 8'), the airing cupboard and to the attractive modern family bathroom.

The gardens are a fine feature of the property; they have been meticulously designed and planned by the current owner and now offer a beautiful tranquil space. The enclosed garden offers a good degree of privacy, especially given its excellent central location and is an ideal environment in which to relax or entertain. The herringbone brick pathway weaves up the garden passing flowerbeds, edged with box hedging, and finishes at the top of the garden around a paved patio and delightful summer house. The property further benefits from a discreet bin store and gated access leads to the side parking area.
