LOCATION
Great Cornard was once a separate village from Sudbury but over the years the two have grown and merged together. It still retains it's own sense of identity and community, together with highly regarded (and newly re-built) Thomas Gainsborough Secondary School. Sudbury itself provides a good range of shops, schooling and recreational facilities, including a modern swimming pool/leisure complex, Quayside Theatre and many clubs and associations. The town station provides shuttle trains through to the main London and Colchester line and there are good bus services to the surrounding areas. Schools are within walking distance of the house.

THE PROPERTY
The house was built in around the 1930's and has been substantially extended and improved in recent years and is now a large and impressive family home. A separate annexe cottage was added and more of the house accommodation (study / family room and/or utility room) could be added to make the annexe larger. There is an extensive parking area to the front and a triple garage/workshop. If the latter were converted to more accommodation there would be plenty of room to build further garaging. The interior has large and bright rooms with high ceilings, big windows, all of which are replacement UPVC. The standard of décor is very good. Gas fired central heating is provided. To the rear is a large sun trap terrace opening to mature gardens.
