‘Abbey House’ is a handsome historic, four storey town house of spacious and classical proportions behind an imposing brick façade in two shades of red. Accommodation briefly comprises five bedrooms, impressive panelled reception areas, a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room and an adjoining garden room. A private walled garden provides a quiet sanctuary.

The Grade II-listed property is situated in the heart of the highly desirable Medieval grid; a defining feature of the town centre Conservation Area. Churchgate Street is famously known as ‘processional way’ with its importance of being laid out to line up directly with the centre of the West Front of the grand former Benedictine monastery.

The property has been well-preserved and enhanced in recent years. Stand-out Medieval and Georgian period embellishments include: three cellar niches with arched heads of Abbey stone in a cusped and moulded 14th century style, early 18th century dados, sash windows with panelled window shutters and window-seat and a fine dog-leg stair with vase-on-reel balusters and moulded hand rails.

'Abbey House' will suit a broad range of buyers, whether downsizers from the country, or a growing family – all who seek an enviable town centre address with flexible and relaxed accommodation in which to entertain with superb period statements throughout.
