THE LOCATION
Sudbury is an historic market town containing a wealth of period houses and cottages at its centre. It offers an excellent range of amenities with many shops and clubs and associations for rugby, football, cricket, tennis, bowls and rowing. There is a modern swimming pool/leisure complex and small quayside theatre. The town station provides shuttle trains through to the main London and Colchester line and there are bus connections to the surrounding area. Almost all these amenities are within walking distance of Cross Street, as are Sudbury's historic water meadows with lovely walks along by the River Stour, only a moment away from Cross Street.

THE PROPERTY
Hollyberry House is a magnificent town house, Listed Grade II as being of architectural and historical importance. The original part of the house is built on a massive oak timber frame, probably dating from the 16th Century, and as is typical in Sudbury, a later brick front has been added with large window openings, now double glazed, and a slate roof on the front section with mature clay tiled roof to the rear. The interior of the house has been restored and offers very large rooms with flexible accommodation. There is a pine country kitchen, vaulted oak garden room and a huge downstairs shower room to complement the main family bathroom upstairs and en suite cloakroom, large enough to be a shower room. There is pedestrian access to the side and at the rear is a sunny and nicely landscaped fully walled garden.
