The elegant gault brick faade hides a much earlier well-proportioned timber framed building and suggests that 51 College Street was once part of a larger merchant's house. The property is presented in fair decorative order and features a wealth of period features, including exposed ceiling timbers and stud work and an open red brick hearthed fireplace in the sitting room and an attractive feature fireplace in the dining area.

Beyond this there is the dining area with a feature fireplace with overmantel and which previously was fitted with a wood burner. A glazed door leads into a fitted kitchen with a range of base and eye level units, Neff four ring electric hob and Neff electric oven, butler's sink with mixer tap over and space and plumbing for an automatic washing machine. From the kitchen there is a door with steps down, with restricted head height, to a large cellar (22'2" x 10'2" max) providing useful storage and adaptable for a variety of other uses. Also from the kitchen, a door leads into a small west facing enclosed courtyard.

A further flight of stairs from this landing leads to the second floor, to the spacious bedroom landing/study area and a second bedroom with a deep built-in hanging cupboard and which benefits from views over the rooftops of Bury St Edmunds to the east to St Mary's Church spire.
