Lavenham is often described as one of England's finest preserved medieval villages. With its fortunes arising from the wool trade in the 15th and 16th Centuries, the village has a magnificent parish church and a wonderful selection of ancient houses and cottages dating from Tudor timber buildings through the Georgian period to the Victorian era. Today the village is very vibrant with a most active community and useful range of shops including a butcher, pharmacy, bakery, traditional grocer's store and two modern co-ops. There are also a number of interesting shops and galleries and several fine public houses and restaurants. There is a primary school and a modern doctor's surgery.


Number 10 Bolton Street is Grade II Listed as being of architectural and historical importance. It is formed from one part of one of Lavenhams' historic medieval timber framed houses and inside there are many wonderful exposed beams and a splendid old inglenook fireplace. There is a later addition at the back. The interior would benefit from some updating in the kitchen and bathroom. Gas fired central heating with a modern boiler is already installed. To the side and rear are lovely mature English cottage gardens, catching the sun for most of the day. There is on street parking outside but the possibility of creating an off street parking space using part of the garden. The cottage would make an ideal permanent home, weekend hideaway or very profitable holiday letting property.
