Churchgate Street, Bury St. Edmunds

Guide price £495,000

55 Churchgate Street is a real Gem, untouched for many years and ripe for restoration and improvement. The house dates back to at least the 16th century, is Grade II listed being of particular architectural and historical interest and has not been to market for around 60 years. The house enjoys one of the finest settings along Churchgate Street, directly opposite and affording splendid views to the magnificent Unitarian meeting house, whilst being within a stone throw of the historic town centre and range of shops and restaurants. In need of restoration and updating, the accommodation currently in brief comprises; Panelled entrance door with casement opens to Reception Hall; with stairs off to first floor, door to garden door to Sitting Room; a spacious reception with sash windows to front with shutters and fireplace. It is understood that there is a cellar beneath the Kitchen (not inspected). Dining Room; with sash window to front. Kitchen Breakfast Room; with fireplace, dated kitchen units, windows to rear and side. Bathroom; with bath, WC and basin. On the first floor is a landing with door to staircase off to attic rooms. There are four bedrooms on the first floor, two front bedrooms afford stunning views to the Unitarian Meeting House, small bathroom and on the second floor are two further attic rooms with dormer windows to the front.

To the rear is an unusually large garden providing great scope for landscaping etc. The gardens are south facing and are bordered by a high brick and flint wall. Within the gardens are trees, shrubs and a brick built outbuilding.

In our opinion, the house occupies one of the best positions on Churchgate Street being situated directly opposite the magnificent Unitarian Meeting House, whilst being within Stones throw of the historic town centre.
