FOUR STOREY TOWNHOUSE BEHIND A GAULT BRICK GEORGIAN FACADE WITH SOUTHERLY COURTYARD GARDEN AND CONVERTED BASEMENT
This attractive three bedroom townhouse exhibits numerous architectural period features spanning some four centuries. Accommodation includes versatile living space which flows seamlessly from the open-plan Kitchen/Breakfast Room to the front, through the Dining Room with feature fireplace, to a vaulted Sitting Room with French Doors leading to a courtyard garden to the rear. Of particular note is the impressive master bedroom suite that occupies the entire top floor with floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall built-in wardrobes and en-suite shower room in addition to a recently converted basement that opens up a multitude of uses and a wonderful vaulted dual aspect Sitting Room with exposed studwork. A 17th century red brick fireplace in the kitchen/breakfast room creates an altogether unique focal point, and two double bedrooms for guests and family either side the second floor bathroom.
A serene and secluded southerly courtyard garden benefits from separate rear gated access for the bin store and brick garden shed in a former Victorian outdoor privy. It is laid out in a low maintenance format; largely paved with soft landscaping details and enclosed completely to give a degree of privacy. Residents permit parking scheme is in operation.
28 Guildhall Street is conveniently located within the historic Cathedral town of Bury St. Edmunds and is situated in arguably one of the most desirable residential enclaves and conservation areas (the medieval Norman Grid formed by intersecting Churchgate, Guildhall & Westgate streets). The bars, restaurants and independent boutique shops of Abbeygate Street and the Market Square are nearby. Excellent A14 access is afforded by Westgate Street via Southgate Street.
