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.

Stanley Road is just on the edge of the town centre within easy walking distance of the facilities. This is an area where most of the properties are Victorian and it is away from busy traffic and very popular.

THE PROPERTY
This is a late Victorian end terraced house built with traditional Suffolk white brick elevations under a roof which now has modern tiles. There are double glazed replacement windows and the house retains its wonderful Victorian cast iron railings and gate at the front. To the rear is a 103' sunny garden with useful pedestrian access. The interior would benefit from some updating and has potential to rearrange upstairs and create one double bedroom, two single bedrooms and a bathroom, subject to building regulations. There is also a large basement/cellar with staircase down and window which could be tanked out to provide a useful reception room. The property was modernised many years ago but would benefit from some internal updating.
