FOR THE PURIST! A fine, timber framed, Suffolk farmhouse with jettied landings. This beautiful Grade II Listed home retains many of its original period features and is set in an elevated position overlooking its own grounds. No onward chain.
Haverhill is a thriving and popular market town, the fastest growing in Suffolk, and is one of the most convenient towns for access to Cambridge, 17 miles, London, and Stansted Airport around 30 minutes' drive, the M11 corridor and mainline railway stations to Liverpool Street (Audley End 12 miles). Haverhill is a very affordable town and has been the subject of a lot of very good public investment. There is a twice-weekly market, out-of-town shopping including Sainsbury's and Tesco, restaurants, social clubs, hotels, 18-hole golf course, and a comprehensive nursery and schooling system. There is also an excellent sports centre, a number of churches, and a recent multiplex cinema complex.
