A HANDSOME AND WELL-PRESENTED CENTRALLY LOCATED PERIOD TOWNHOUSE
Situated in a desirable part of town, 23 Guildhall Street is an attractive Grade II-listed house steeped in history with the original timber-framed core dating back to the 17th century, a series of elegant Georgian enhancements and some 19th century embellishments. With excellent proportions and generous high ceilings in the principal rooms, the accommodation is laid out around an open-plan Kitchen / Breakfast room. Of particular note is the spectacular converted basement that exudes a baronial tone and lends itself well to a variety of uses, whether for grand dining, study or as a games room. A plethora of period details include ornate cornices, stripped panelled doors, exposed studwork, fireplaces and wood floors. The property further comprises an elegant Sitting Room, Utility room, downstairs Cloakroom, two Bedrooms (one En-suite with views towards the Cathedral beyond) and Bathroom.
A secluded courtyard garden is laid out in a manageable format; largely paved with raised beds and enclosed completely by trellising. There is a useful outdoor store. Attractive townscape views including the distinctive 18th century former snuff factory. Residents permit parking scheme is in operation.
23 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.
