Note: This OpenRent Property Is No Longer Available For Rent. Description below is only for reference, and you can no longer book a viewing or contact this private landlord.
Double Room (all bills included) with shared, but fine, bathroom in a shared 18th century Mill House of 440 square metres internal floor area set in peaceful and secluded grounds within the dale (with 200 metres of river frontage on the river Stour) beside the beautiful village of Long Melford. 

The property benefits from off street parking, gas central heating (the boiler is newish) and a fruitful apple and pear orchard.

The rent includes the bills. Breaking these down (for comparison with properties where rent does not include the bills) and amortising between a putative four entities the council tax comes to £61 per month, the water bill £8 per month, the power bill circa £53 for electricity and circa £37 for gas plus £19 for the (radio) internet and £25 for gardening, being £203 per entity for all the bills.

The property is shared with the thirty-something lady fire breather, hoop-performing-elf, lodger and her thirty something entrepreneur partner, the fifty something gentleman inventor landlord (M.A. Cantab), the twenty-something telecommunications engineer and the forty something Antipodean Reverend Doctor software-monk-engineer-lawyer. For your information board gamers would not, by a significant minority of the inhabitants, be frowned on and nor would piano players, libertarians, high calibre software engineers, or physicists, in need of a messianic project, history graduates or singers. 
The room is not offered to couples as at today due to the 1947 Town and Country Planning Act although this constraint should be lifted soon as an appropriate planning permission, including conditions, has been granted such that approval is now only pending only the provision of some documents so couples need, hopefully, not be deterred. Naturally prospective lodgers will have to pass the entrance examination which will test knowledge of such matters as whether or not the idea of a citizen's income is evil and what was the origin of World War One?
