Fine listed property of immense charm and character situated in a prominent position within this sought after small historic town. This spacious home benefits from off street parking and a large beautifully stocked rear garden.

The location For over 1000 years people have lived in and visited one of this country's finest towns. With its famous Guildhall, magnificent Church and restored Windmill set against a backdrop of Medieval houses it is considered the jewel in the crown of Essex.

Thaxted is a small country town with a recorded history which dates back to before the Domesday Book. Yet although the town is full of considerable architectural interest, its attraction as a place to visit arises just as much from the special character of the town as a community.

Thaxted has no artificial tourist attractions; it remains today what is has been for the last ten centuries – a thriving town which moves with the times, but also treats its heritage from the past with great respect.

The past and the present come together in Thaxted as part of the daily life of everyone in the town.

Thaxted today has a variety of shops, restaurants, pubs and other businesses which serve the needs of resident and visitor alike, making the town a centre for trade and commerce today, as it has been for 1000 years.
