Type and Period (2)
20 Pine Trees Avenue is a suburban bungalow on the eastern edge of Mildenhall, approximately 800 m from the town centre. The core of the building is a largely intact railway carriage that was transported to its present site in or shortly after 1921 and converted for domestic use by adding a pitched roof and a small kitchen extension. The roof extended beyond the sides of the carriage to form an internal corridor on one side and a garden veranda on the other, with a bedroom, sitting room and bathroom within. The new conversion is reputed to have been designed for a matron at Mildenhall hospital. The kitchen chimney was moved and a second extension of corrugated iron was added in the 1940s or 50s when the property was acquired by a married couple, but the original conversion is still recognisable (S1).
