LUXURY COMES AS STANDARD, COMPLEMENTING BOTH SOPHISTICATED ENTERTAINING AND MODERN FAMILY LIVING IN THE MEDIEVAL GRID WITH GATED OFF-STREET PARKING. *CHAIN FREE*

Forming part of a landmark development on the site of a former Greene King maltings, this elegant townhouse is immaculately presented and occupies an enviable situation on the corner of the medieval grid. Finished to an exceptionally high standard throughout, the design and construction reflect a traditional building style, reminiscent of a Georgian townhouse. Behind its impressive street frontage is light, spacious and contemporary accommodation, arranged over three storeys, combined with modern efficiencies. A high level of attention was paid to the specification of the house, which is evident in details such as the architrave, panelled doors and the quality of fittings throughout, including double glazed sash windows.

Of particular note is its discreet position off one-way Bridewell Lane, a south-west facing low maintenance courtyard garden, electric gated off-street parking and with the addition of permit parking – all within walking distance of the town centre. The property offers an opportunity to acquire the ultimate ‘lock up and leave’ and a fantastic family home.

LOCATION

7a Bridewell Lane 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 the intersecting streets of Churchgate, Guildhall & Westgate). The bars, restaurants and independent boutique shops of Abbeygate Street and the Market Square are nearby. The country’s oldest surviving Regency theatre, The Theatre Royal, is only a two minute walk away. Excellent A14 access is afforded by Westgate Street via Southgate Street. .

PROVENANCE

An original plaque inscribed ‘E + G 1845’ is wall-mounted on the front façade of the property, which pays homage to Edward Greene of Greene King who purchased the site from the ‘Guildhall Feoffment School Trust’ and that was aptly named ‘School Maltings’. Edward Greene developed it into a maltings facility (as shown in the above image to the left with its kiln chimneys) to supplement the Greene King Westgate Street Brewery operation– a town landmark still in existence today.

In 2004, M&D Developments completed the current Maltings development on the southern most fringe of the medieval grid to an exceptionally high standard, constructing an arrangement of varying town houses in a modern period style in keeping with the town centre Conservation Area and historic streetscape.
