Belchamp St Paul is one of the Belchamps, a small group of most attractive villages set in the attractive countryside of the Belchamp Brook and Stour Valleys, on the Suffolk/Essex borders. The village itself has a public house, primary school, village hall and a good sense of community. The nearby market town of Sudbury offers an excellent range of shops, schooling and recreational facilities, together with a train station linking through to the main London and Colchester line. It is easy to drive across to Braintree and pick up the new A120 express road connecting to Stansted Airport and the M11, making London ever more accessible. The surrounding area contains many other delightful villages and some most attractive rolling countryside. The bungalow is in a superb position fronting directly on to the village green.


Greengages is a mature detached bungalow built with traditional cavity brick walls and a tiled roof. There are now uPVC double glazed replacement windows, front door, patio doors, and oil fired central heating is provided. At the front is a large forecourt providing excellent parking plus a garage and to the rear is an unexpectedly large garden which expands to twice the width and adjoins open fields behind. The interior has just been re-decorated and has brand new carpets throughout and so is ready for immediate occupation, prior to further updating. Bungalows on the village green rarely come on to the market.
