This is what a cool £1.3 million will buy you in the historic heart of Bury St Edmunds

Suffolk has some of the UK's loveliest homes - architectural eccentricities, seaside escapes, country piles.

Threaded through our county are some of the most historic gems you'll come across in the UK and they fall well within the bracket of *des res*.

One of those homes has come onto the market in the heart of West Suffolk, smack in the middle of the medieval grid in Bury St Edmunds - and that's why Powyk House will set you back a cool £1.3 million if you fancy calling it home.

And what do you get for all that cash?

Well you get a prime Hatter Street address - along with the beautiful and renowned history of Bury St Edmunds sitting right outside your front door.

The Georgian-fronted home has a wealth of period features and they begin with the sweeping staircase as you step off one of the town's main streets.

The home is luxurious and elegant and agent Jackson-Stops says the home is Grade II listed and "provides a considerable amount of comfortable, well-appointed family accommodation".

The light and airy kitchen will have prospective purchasers green with envy - while the mature gardens and six bedrooms will entice large families who are looking for that forever home. Elsewhere, sash windows, a cast iron fireplace and an Aga cooker all add to the charm of this fabulous home.

More details on Powyk House are available from Jackson-Stops via 01284 700535 or at their office in Guildhall Street, Bury St Edmunds.
