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.

Banham Drive is a cul-de-sac of purpose built two bedroom bungalows designed specifically for the over 55s. The cul-de-sac is off the Waldingfield Road, just outside the town centre with bus services at the end of the road, with links to the surrounding area.

THE PROPERTY

This bungalow is one of the larger types, built with traditional cavity brick walls and a tiled roof. The vendors have upgraded the windows to wide gap double glazed units and the property has recently been redecorated outside and completely redecorated inside, with new carpets fitted throughout. The bungalow is located away from traffic overlooking the small green square and has the advantage of its allocated parking space being right outside. Unusually, it is joined next door only by part of one side wall. To the rear is a very private patio with French doors. Gas fired central heating is provided. The property has a speaker on the phone and a pendant for the owner to wear which connect to a warden.
