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. Claybrick Cottage is located on the corner of Bulmer Road and Sandy Lane, right on the southern outskirts of Sudbury. It stands in a good corner plot screened behind mature trees and hedgerows.

THE PROPERTY

Claybrick Cottage began life as a late 18th or early 19th Century cottage built with traditional soft red brick with a Dutch gable and a mellow clay tiled roof. Over the years it has been substantially extended, very sensitively done also in soft red brick, cavity wall construction and a clay tiled roof. There is a further addition at the rear with rendered elevations and a clay tiled roof. The windows are a mixture of traditional wooden sashes and casement windows, with matching French doors. The interior provides surprisingly large, light and airy accommodation with three large reception rooms, a traditional shaker style kitchen, utility room and a useful home office just outside. Gas fired central heating is provided. There are many good original features, including some exposed timbers and an inglenook fireplace. The gardens surround the house on three sides and are very nicely landscaped with extensive flagstone paving, lawns and raised flower borders. There is a driveway providing good parking with a garage store and other outbuildings.
