THE LOCATION
Sudbury is an historic town containing a wealth of period houses and cottages at its centre. The birthplace of Thomas Gainsborough, the town is steeped in history. The town provides an excellent range of shops, schools and recreational facilities including clubs for rugby, football, cricket, tennis, bowls and rowing. There is a small quayside theatre and modern swimming pool/leisure complex. The town's station provides shuttle trains through to the main London and Colchester line with fast services on to Liverpool Street. Queens Road is on the northern outskirts of the town centre within easy walking distance of the market place, shops and schools etc. The first part contains almost entirely Victorian architecture. The property is one of a terrace built as Coronation Villas in 1902.

THE PROPERTY
59 Queens Road is built with solid 9" Suffolk white bricks under a slate roof. Unusually, it still retains its original double hung sash windows, most with the original float glass window panes. Inside there are all the original fireplaces, stripped pine panelled doors and stripped and varnished pine floorboards. Gas fired central heating is provided with a modern boiler and to the rear is a west facing garden. There is potential to create off-street parking at the front, as two other properties in the terrace have already done. The accommodation downstairs has been knocked through to provide an open plan hall/sitting and dining room, giving lots of through natural light.
