Yours for £650,000 - House in the very heart of 'Constable country'.<br />
<br />
This old house in the middle of the village of East Bergholt would have been well known to the young John Constable who grew up in the idyllic Suffolk village. <br />
<br />
Grade II listed Stour Cottage is the perfect home for any fan of the artist who claimed the village "first tinged my boyish fancy with a love of the art" and the famous country scenes he painted in nearby Dedham Vale, can still be recognised today.<br />
<br />
This property, which was built in the 17th century and re-fronted with a striking Gothic facade in the early 1800s, was just a five-minute walk from where Constable lived and was a building he saw on a daily basis.
