Tenure: FreeholdTHE LOCATION
Great Cornard was once a village separate from the historic market town of Sudbury and although the two have blended together, it still retains a sense of community and identity, with local shops, schools and sports centre. Sudbury itself provides a good range of shops, schooling and recreational facilities, the many clubs and associations including rugby, football, cricket, tennis, bowls and rowing. There is a small quayside theatre and modern swimming pool/leisure complex. The towns station provides shuttle trains through to the main London and Colchester line with fast services on to Liverpool Street and there are bus and road connections to the surrounding area, down towards the A12, M11 and Stansted Airport. This section of the Bures Road contains a number of large Victorian detached houses, clearly a very prestigious part of the town in those days. Many of these houses have been restored in recent years this is a desirable location.
98 Bures Road was built as a handsome Victorian town villa, with a particularly large number of good features. It is built with Suffolk white bricks under a high slate roof with fancy painted bargeboards at the front and bay windows to the front and side. The house has grown over the years with additions in Suffolk white brick and slate to match. Many original windows remain and inside there are a number of good features, particularly an exceptional fine staircase and landing. The newest addition is the studio room on the left, which could even be a fifth bedroom, if required.
