An elegant and well-presented Grade II listed central townhouse, standing in one of the most sought-after residential streets in Bury St Edmunds with private parking. Entrance lobby, sitting room, dining room, kitchen and cellar. First floor master bedroom and family bathroom (possible 3rd bedroom), second floor second double bedroom and a family shower room. Walled courtyard garden and off road parking space. THE PROPERTY A well-presented 19th century townhouse standing in one of the most favoured residential streets in Bury St Edmunds town centre. This elegant Grade II Listed property presents an attractive gault brick faade with double hung sash windows under a slate roof. A panelled entrance door with light over leads into a useful reception lobby with cloaks hanging space and door leading into the sitting room, which features a sash window to the front, exposed floorboards, a fireplace with inset gas fire and back boiler, with exposed timber surround, mantle and a marble hearth. Panelled pine doors separate the staircase from the two reception rooms in the centre of the house and the dining room to the rear benefits from a sash window overlooking the garden, exposed floorboards and has a door that opens to the stairs that lead down to the cellar and a ½ glazed panelled door leading to the kitchen. The kitchen is recently fitted with a stylish range of base and eye level units with marble style stone work surfaces, an underset 1 ½ bowl stainless steel sink unit, an integrated dishwasher, washer/dryer, integrated Zanussi electric hob, built in AEG oven and combi microwave and an integrated AEG fridge/freezer. The cellar, which is as originally built, has exposed brick walls and floor, with timber edged stairs leading down to the doorway opening, could with the usual consents, be converted as many on this street have been due to the good head height, to provide a spacious room ideal for a number of purposes. On the first floor there is a spacious double bedroom with fitted wardrobe cupboards, delightful cast iron feature fireplace and sash window to the front. On this floor there is also a large family bathroom (formerly a 3rd bedroom which could be reporposed, maybe with a ''jack and jill' ensuite between this and the master bedroom) fitted with a panel enclosed bath with tiled splash backs and shower side screen, low flush WC, a vanity wash basin with marble top and cupboard below, sash window to the rear and airing cupboard which also houses the hot water tank. On the second floor there is another equally spacious double bedroom, again benefiting from a fitted wardrobe cupboard and sash window to the front. There is a recently refitted family shower room on this floor with double cubicle tiled shower enclosure, low flush WC, pedestal wash hand basin, Velux roof light window and low door to the useful eaves storage. OUTSIDE Leading out from the French doors from the kitchen the attractive and easily maintained rear courtyard garden affords space for alfresco eating and benefits from a lockable gate to the pedestrian access to the rear. It is laid with a mix of paving slabs, with a water tap and garden store to the end. The courtyard is fully enclosed by brick and flint walls and would make a delightful Italianate pot garden. The parking space, as can be seen in the photo below (with the car parked in it) is just to the end of the pedestrian walkway and is vehicular accessed off Well Street. LOCATION Well Street is one of the town's most popular residential streets and offers a pleasing mix of period housing and sits in a conservation area within easy walking distance of the town centre's amenities.

The University City of Cambridge is approximately 28 miles away and Stowmarket some 12 miles away, which offers a fast and regular mainline train service to London Liverpool Street, taking approximately 85 minutes. For the road commuter there is excellent access to the A14, A11(M11) and A1.
