Long Melford is an historic village, which contains a wealth of fine period houses and cottages along its linear settlement, one of the longest in England. It has an excellent range of facilities including a doctor's surgery, primary school, many pubs and restaurants and a good range of shops. The nearby market town of Sudbury and historic Bury St. Edmunds to the north each provide a further range of facilities, together with road and rail connections to London and the surrounding area. Old Court is a much favoured development of semi and detached houses along Bull Lane leading out of the village but within short easy walking distance of the main street and all the facilities. Number 19 is particularly well located, tucked in the corner of a hammer head and backing on to a lovely meadow walk alongside the Chad Brook with the wooded grounds of Melford Hall beyond providing a magnificent backdrop, teeming with wildlife.


The present owners purchased the house new from the developers, Comben Homes when it was known as the Willow Brook site. It is built with traditional cavity brick walls under a modern interlocking tiled roof and windows and external doors have been replaced with uPVC wide gap double glazed units. A superb all glass conservatory has been added to the rear. To the front is an unusually large private parking forecourt and double garage and the gardens surround the house on three sides and adjoin the Chad Brook and meadow walk at the rear - arguably one of the very best settings in The Old Court development. The interior would benefit from some updating and the house has great potential to extend, subject to the normal planning consents.
