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. The property is just over Ballingdon Bridge, which crosses the River Stour, beside The Boat House Inn. Nearby is a footpath (Noah's Ark Lane) giving access out onto the meadows with lovely walks. There is unrestricted on-road parking outside. There is further access to the meadows (only two minutes' walk) through a carpark for Ballingdon Street residents.

THE PROPERTY
101 Ballingdon Street is Listed Grade II as being of architectural and historical importance. From the front it appears to be a 19th Century cottage with rendered elevations, a parapet wall and sash windows, but the interior suggests much earlier origins, perhaps 17th Century. The rooms have unusually high ceilings on both the ground and first floors and on the second floor is another useful studio room with a steep staircase up. There are some good period features inside and perhaps the removal of plasterwork would reveal further timbers and beams etc. To the rear is a bright and surprisingly long garden. The house has recently been the subject of major renovation by the present owners, including the installation of a new bathroom, new kitchen, new flooring and modern electric underfloor heating. The house has just been redecorated outside.
