UNIQUE MEDIEVAL DETACHED TOWNHOUSE OFFERS MODERN COMFORTS BLENDED WITH A WONDERFUL HISTORIC NARRATIVE
This unique Medieval home is unusual in being one of the very few detached houses in the medieval grid. Formerly two dwellings, 7 College Street is a wonderfully atmospheric timber-framed and substantial four bedroom townhouse with historic origins that date back to the 15th century; signified by its Grade II listed status. Accommodation includes versatile living space which flows seamlessly around the two main reception rooms either side the hallway (one fitted with a wood burner) through to the open-plan Kitchen/Breakfast Room to the rear that links to a stylish ground floor wet room. Arranged over three floors with two bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom on the first floor and a further two bedrooms served by a shower room on the second floor. Large cellar space offers potential scope to convert.
A serene and secluded southerly walled courtyard garden benefits from separate street access via a side gate for the bin store. It is laid out in a manageable format; largely paved with raised decking and enclosed completely to give a good degree of privacy. Residents permit parking scheme is in operation along the street front.
7 College Street is conveniently located within the historic Cathedral town of Bury St. Edmunds and is situated along a quiet one way street 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.
