We are an independent professional firm of estate agents and chartered surveyors.
The company was founded in the 1950s and is now run by the sole principal, Mr Sam Thornton FRICS, who has over 30 years’ experience of selling houses on the Suffolk/Essex border.
We are based in Sudbury – a lovely market town on the Suffolk/Essex border.
We specialise in the sale of period and character country houses and cottages in all price ranges, dealing with an area of about 300 square miles. We are fortunate to cover a most attractive part of the country – with wonderful medieval villages set in undulating countryside – and accessible to good roads and mainline railway stations to London.
Our clients and buyers have the personal attention of Sam Thornton and our friendly, helpful staff. We work hard to combine professional integrity with modern technology and a caring, professional touch.
All our properties are featured on our own website, as well as on Rightmove, the leading property portal. We also advertise in local newspapers. This advertising helps us to receive instructions from many owners interested in accessing our wide network of buyers.
Apart from selling houses, Thorntons also provide a wide range of professional services including valuations, development appraisals, general property advice and much more.
