Bury St Edmunds house, close to Abbey Gardens, on the market for £950,000 spans the centuries
A house with a real history, St Nicholas – a short stroll from the Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds – was originally built in the 15th century but displays architectural styles spanning the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
The Grade II listed town house retains an array of unique features complemented by mature grounds which include the large window at the end of the garden – at the junction of Hollow Road, Barton Road and Eastgate Street – which was moved there from St Petronella’s sometime after 1811.
The property is being marketed by Sheridans with a guide price of £950,000.
The accommodation, in brief, comprises, on the ground floor, an entrance porch and reception hall – with stairs off to first floor and to a cellar and wine cellar – drawing room, study, dining room, kitchen breakfast room with walk-in pantry and utility room.
On the first floor are three generous bedrooms, with fitted wardrobe cupboards, en-suite bathroom and separate shower room.
There are two further attic bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor.
Outside, the grounds – which are of about one third of an acre –provide the home with an excellent degree of privacy and seclusion while enclosed by an old brick and flint wall incorporating dressed limestone from Bury St Edmunds Abbey and the stunning historic window from St Petronella’s.
There is an abundance of mature shrubs and well stocked flower beds, plus a stone and paved terrace is an ideal area for outdoor entertaining.
To the side of the house is the garaging.
