THE LOCATION
Great Cornard was once a village separate from the historic market town of Sudbury but the two have now blended together, although it still retains a sense of community and identity. It has local shops and schools and a nearby Sainsbury's. Sudbury provides an excellent range of shops, schools and recreational facilities with many clubs and associations, including rugby, football, cricket, tennis, bowls and rowing. There is a small quayside theatre and modern swimming pool/leisure complex. The town station provides shuttle trans through to the main London and Colchester line, with fast services on to Liverpool Street and there are bus and road connections to the surrounding area, down towards the A12, M11 and Stansted Airport.

Broom Street is a quiet road, which sees only local traffic and contains a number of quite large detached houses and bungalows. It is within very easy walking distance of the highly regarded Thomas Gainsborough Upper School, primary schools and two local Co-ops. At the end of the road are good bus services as well.

THE PROPERTY
Lydeards is a mature detached house built in 1959 with cavity walls (filled) under a pyramid tiled roof. There are now uPVC wide gap double glazed windows all around, together with a matching conservatory. The house was extended some years ago to provide additional space on the ground floor, designed to give an independent annexe or to be used with the main house. There is ample room to extend the property and plans were prepared by a previous owner (not submitted) for a substantial extension to increase the property to five bedrooms and three reception rooms. The interior has been upgraded by the present owners and is now very well presented with a modern bathroom, modern cloakroom and gas fired central heating is provided with a modern condensing combination boiler.

A particular feature of Lydeards are its wonderful gardens. There is an impressive driveway and front garden with mature hedges and lovely flowering shrubs. At the back is a real gardener's garden with two greenhouses and three sheds. The borders are well stocked with numerous bulbs, flowers, shrubs and small trees, together with a splendid silver birch in the rear corner by the summerhouse. The garden is in flower literally every day of the year. Beyond the main garden is a superb vegetable garden with vegetable beds and fruit cages. There is a peach tree, six apple and six pear and the fruit cages house blueberry, raspberry and gooseberry. The main garden has a remote control watering system and there is a water supply in the vegetable garden, both coming from a private bore hole in the garage (the house is on mains water).
