It would not be at all difficult to revert back to a full-length garage, if required.
We are advised that telephone, mains gas, electricity and water are connected.

The high street has excellent shops, two supermarkets, a delicatessen, a number of independent retailers, several banks, a leisure centre with a swimming pool, a library and a range of restaurants, pubs and cafés. There is also a theatre, the Queens Hall, and the public gardens play host to various band concerts all through the summer. Two golf clubs are close by and ramblers are well-served by a river walk that runs through the town. Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum, just eight miles down the road, features an impressive global tree collection set in more than 200 acres of historic landscape, and the 110-foot Norman keep at Hedingham Castle, the luxurious traditional mansion at Kentwell Hall and the National Trust's magnificent Melford Hall are also nearby.
