Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

DESCRIPTION Dating from the late 16th Century, Gurney Court is of significant importance, being the birthplace of both Elizabeth Fry (1780 - 1845) and Harriet Martineau (1802 - 1812). This is one of those rare gems which most people wouldn't know existed. All you will see from Magdalen Street is a locked gate and a covered passageway with two wall plaques for the aforementioned Fry and Martineau and a glimpse of the central courtyard around which the four residences are arranged. Number 1 Gurney Court shares a communal entrance hall only with number 2. The property has the benefit of gas central heating and offers well presented accommodation on three floors with character in abundance. The cellar is particularly useful for wine and general storage purposes and although it is not included in the Title Deed for the property, only the owners of number 1 have access to it. Only by inspection can the unique qualities of this fine city home be fully appreciated and viewing is highly recommended. 

LOCATION The property is located within walking distance of all amenities in the city, which includes excellent shopping facilities, restaurants, cafés and public houses, theatres and cinemas together with health and leisure centres.
