A fabulous Grade II listed townhouse offering substantial accommodation, a south facing garden and cartlodge parking, located in the convenient and highly sought after historic area of Honey Hill, a short walk from the town centre. Entrance vestibule, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and a shower/cloakroom. Interconnected two room cellar. First floor master bedroom with en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Second floor attic room/bedroom and a potential en-suite shower room. Walled garden and cartlodge parking. THE PROPERTY No.4 Honey Hill is an attractive and deceptively spacious townhouse, with a delightful aspect looking over The Great Churchyard towards the Cathedral, Norman Tower and The Deanery, just a few minutes' walk from the town centre and Abbey Gardens. Formerly the Coach and Horses public house, it underwent a complete and sympathetic restoration by the Bury Town Trust, carried out to a high standard by award-winning, specialist builders, FA Valiant & Son, and now comes to the market for the first time in 36 years. The handsome, colour washed Georgian faade conceals a much earlier past, its core being a 14th century house of mainly timber frame construction, some timbers from an even earlier 12th century building. The interior boasts a multitude of period features including what is believed to be a Georgian fireplace, exposed timbers and peg holes, and a medieval arched doorway. Although the property would now benefit from some modernisation, it offers generously proportioned accommodation of approaching 3000 square feet arranged over four floors, including a large two room cellar (circa 26' x 15' and 16' x 12'). A glazed entrance vestibule leads into the sitting room, featuring twin windows to the front aspect, an open fireplace and a range of shelving. A large opening leads through to the dining room, which also has a window to the front, a large cupboard and a door to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is fitted with a wide range of base and wall units, twin sink units, integrated appliances, including a double oven, warming drawer, hob and plumbing for automatic appliances, a window overlooking the garden, French doors onto the garden's terraced area and a back door. Continuing on the ground floor and leading off the inner hall is a shower/cloakroom, a large double cupboard, stairs leading to the first floor and a door to the cellar stairs. On the first floor a landing leads to four good sized bedrooms with the master bedroom enjoying an en-suite shower room and along with two further bedrooms has beautiful views overlooking the tree-lined Great Churchyard. The rear bedroom has a double wardrobe and a window overlooking the south-facing rear garden. There is also a family bathroom with a rear aspect. From the back landing, further stairs lead to another landing area and into an attic room/bedroom with three Velux windows to the rear and a walk-in cupboard, which has water connected, ideal to convert into an en-suite bathroom (subject to the usual consents). OUTSIDE To the rear is an attractive, secluded garden, designed with a central lawned area, raised beds with flowering plants & shrubs and a brick paved terrace for alfresco dining. Enclosed, the garden features a striking brick and flint wall on the west boundary, creating a sun-trap and enjoys a good degree of privacy. A courtesy gate leads to the cartlodge parking, accessed via a gated shared driveway with the neighbour. The garden was entered in Hidden Gardens of Bury regularly and was published by Royal Horticultural Society. LOCATION No.4 Honey Hill is situated in the historic core of Bury St Edmunds on a highly regarded, prime residential street.
