Full description

Occupying a wonderfully secluded town centre setting and located adjacent to the magnificent Great Churchyard and close to the Abbey Gardens, 6 The Great Churchyard is a detached mid 19th century house built of random red brick and stone construction with pierced and fluted bargeboards beneath a fish scale slate roof. Listed Grade II as being of particular historical and architectural interest, originally built as a house and now used as offices, this unique building provides tremendous scope and potential (subject to planning permission and listed building consent) to create a stunning home, or alternatively offices , enjoying a unique setting within the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds.

Offered with no onward chain and requiring improvement, the current accommodation in brief is as follows: Entrance into the property via the front door into an entrance hallway. The entrance hallway accesses three ground floor reception rooms, kitchen and the stairs to an unconverted cellar. On the first floor are four further rooms and a WC. Original features include Victorian fireplaces, picture rails and some original leaded light windows.

Outside, to the front of the house is an area of garden bordered by a high brick and flint wall and a driveway providing potential for off road vehicle parking. There are further smaller areas of garden to the side and rear. The gardens extend to roughly 0.1 acres in total.

Situation - 6 The Great Churchyard occupies a splendid tucked away setting, providing an excellent degree of privacy whilst located only a "stone's throw" from the historic Abbey Gardens and town centre. Bury St Edmunds is a picturesque, thriving market town which brings together the old and the new. The town boasts a great collection of venues for eating, drinking, shopping, and relaxing, making it a great place to live, work, visit and study.

The market town, with its impressive produce market every Wednesday and Saturday, is nestled in the heart of Suffolk. It is known for the Abbey Gardens, a ruined abbey right in the town centre. Bury is a very popular destination for locals and tourists to the area. Visit the old side of the town to see the Cathedral in all its glory, the medieval quarter of the town and the Abbey Gardens itself, or browse the newer side of the town to discover its large assortment of shops, restaurants and entertainment centres.

Directions - Leaving the town centre from Angel Hill, proceed along Crown Street with the Abbeygate on your left, and turn left onto Honey Hill. Follow Honey Hill to its conclusion and bear round to the right onto Raingate Street. Turn off Raingate Street to the right just past the Premier Inn, then turn left behind the Premier Inn and follow the road into the Car Park. Proceed to the far left hand side of the Car Park, where 6 The Churchyard can be found directly ahead.
