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. Church Street is in the old part of the historic town centre and contains many period houses and cottages from the earliest medieval times through to the Victorian period. It is within easy level walking distance of the station and town centre. Church Street is named after the historic parish church, All Saints, in the middle and just along from the cottage is the great Victorian Baptist Church.

THE PROPERTY
One of the leading historic timber framed building specialists believes this cottage to be part of one of the earliest houses in Sudbury, perhaps dating from the late 14th Century. This cottage and the adjoining properties have later fronts but inside reveal some massive oak timbers and braces from the earlier structure. Today the house is finished with rough rendered elevations with sash and casement windows at the front (the latter recently replaced) under a mellow clay tiled roof, which the present owner has had overhauled. Inside is a fine red brick inglenook fireplace and chimney breast and other good period features including old pine and oak ledged and braced doors with Suffolk latches, broad floorboards etc. There is a working fireplace in the inglenook and gas fired central heating is provided. Most of the windows have secondary glazing. To the rear is a modern timber conservatory, which opens on to a long mainly walled garden.
