If you’ve ever fancied living in the heart of the Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds, a unique Grade II detached listed cottage there is currently on the market for £350,000.
The Coach House was formerly the home of the late Sir Eldon Griffiths, who was MP for Bury St Edmunds.
This historic two-bedroom property, in the Courtyard, forms part of a highly exclusive group of properties approached through The Great Churchyard. It stands behind the cathedral, next to the Rose Garden and Abbey ruins, with some of the town's most beautiful views.
The brick-and-flint cottage has been improved in recent years. The ground-floor accommodation includes a reception hall, which opens into a dining area, having a brick floor and bespoke fitted cupboards.
There is a sash window to the front aspect, looking towards the cathedral, easy-rising stairs to the first floor and double doors leading through into the kitchen, which is fitted with a range of units. There is also a shower/cloakroom/utility room.
On the first floor, a vaulted landing leads to a sitting room/bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and twin sash windows to the front, giving more stunning views of the cathedral and the Abbey's Rose Garden. A further bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and a sash window to the front has same views. The bathroom has been recently remodelled and includes a panelled bath and separate shower cubicle.
Outside, although there are no formal gardens, The Coach House is directly adjacent to the Abbey Gardens and The Great Churchyard, with easy access to both. The property utilises Zone F residents parking permits for two cars and vehicle access to the front courtyard is permitted for unloading
