The Property
Lawn House is an impressive double fronted Georgian/Regency property with earlier origins of gault brick under a slate tiled roof. This Grade II listed house is located in a peaceful country hamlet just minutes from the bustling market town of Sudbury and provides an incredible opportunity to the right buyer to create their dream home.
The property is a substantial family home which requires redecoration and remodelling to a modern standard for which the owner has gained listed building consent. Some work has been completed, maintaining the permission.
Consent was also gained to convert the detached Coach House to accommodation which has been completed to a high standard, thus providing the option for a new owner to live there comfortably while carrying out the necessary improvements to the main house.
Lawn House retains much of the charming original character with features such as shuttered sash, oval and French windows, open fireplaces, a drinks room, and the stately proportions typical of this era of British architecture. In addition, there are cellars below the house and the potential to add to theaccommodation with a garden room off the kitchen.

The Location
Cornard Tye is a small hamlet in the Stour Valley set on high ground not far from the A134 Sudbury to Colchester road. Sudbury is a thriving market town centred around the market square with an extensive range of amenities including a wide
variety of shops, sports facilities, churches, restaurants, pubs and schooling. There is also a branch line station with trains connecting at Marks Tey for London's Liverpool Street. There is a mainline station at Colchester (about 12 miles) with trains to London's Liverpool Street taking 50 minutes.

The old farmyard currently gives access to the house with parking for several vehicles and two garages incorporated into the Coach House. Independent access from the West side is also available. Gates give access to the two gardens which are hedge and wall enclosed, mainly laid to lawn with shrub and flower borders and include a magnificent Cedar Tree and a mature Copper Beech. There is a sun terrace with well and
outbuilding overlooking the garden. A paddock is also included to the rear, divided from the main garden by a high brick wall and which backs onto open countryside.
This garden can be directly accessed from the Coach House garage which has an adjacent workshop. The grounds extend to approximately 1.23 acres.
