THE PROPERTY Skylark is a superb penthouse apartment within this impressive period town house that fronts onto Northgate Street, but beneficially is accessed from a private ground floor entrance, to its impressive stairwell. It is believed that the building originally dates from the early to mid-18th Century and it is rightfully listed Grade II, as being of special architectural or historic interest. It has been modernised and improved over recent years, resulting in well presented, spacious accommodation with a light and airy feel. From the Northgate Business Park side of 110 Northgate Street, the private ground floor front door gives access to an entrance hall at the bottom of the impressive stair well that leads up to the flat. There is currently a stairlift fitted from the ground floor to the apartment that can be removed if required. At the top of the stairs the door leads into a reception hallway with built in cupboard for coats and storage. The spacious sitting room affords superb views to the rear from the two sash style windows and benefits from a feature fireplace with inset gas fire and mantle surround. Doors lead off to the fire escape (which is shared with the neighboring office - Wilson Wraight, Agricultural Management Consultants) and the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a range of base and eye level units, an electric hob with oven below and filter above, integrated larder fridge, freezer and half sized dishwasher. There is a corner sink unit and further space and plumbing for a washing machine. Bedroom one leads off the hall with a secondary glazed sash window to the front, a feature fireplace and built-in wardrobes. Bedroom two is accessed from the kitchen and has a sash window to the front, an access hatch with fold down ladder to the loft which affords good storage space and houses the wall mounted Worcester Bosch gas fired combi boiler. There is also a bath/shower room and separate cloakroom leading off the reception hall. Overall Skylark offers well presented, spacious and comfortable town living within easy access of the town centre. OUTSIDE Skylark comes with a private parking space directly in front of the ground floor door to the apartment. There is also a delightful fence enclosed garden with a garden shed and parking space - this can be seen from the property as per the photo (outlined red to indicate its extent), with the large tree, on the right hand side of the carpark. LOCATION Skylark is located to the rear of 110 Northgate Street off the Northgate Business Park carpark, which lies within easy access of the town centre of Bury St Edmunds. The town offers an excellent range of amenities with schooling in the private and public sectors, extensive shopping facilities and a good range of leisure facilities including health clubs, swimming pools and golf clubs.
