Presenting a truly remarkable opportunity within the Medieval Grid of Bury St Edmunds, this ground floor apartment, featuring one bedroom, is situated in the Grade II Listed former Masonic Hall.
The location is both awe-inspiring and picturesque, offering captivating views of the Norman Tower and Cathedral. From its vantage point, one can admire Chequer Square, with St Mary's Church gracefully adorning the background, while the Abbey Gardens lie just across the road.
Carefully crafted from this historic property, the apartment is one of four. Upon entering the building through the impressive six-panel front door with a glazed fan light detailing, one is greeted by a magnificent communal hallway featuring a splendid marble floor.
Stepping into the apartment, you are welcomed by an inviting entrance hall, with a conveniently located cloakroom. The dual aspect living area takes full advantage of the property's prime location, providing stunning vistas of Bury St Edmunds' iconic landmarks. The large sash windows, believed to retain their original shutters, illuminate the room and complement the wooden flooring. The space is further enhanced by remarkable full-height built-in shelving and cabinets.
The kitchen area is tastefully designed, boasting a range of gloss-finished eye-level and base units, complemented by matching preparation surfaces and under cupboard lighting. It is equipped with an inset stainless steel sink featuring a mixer tap and drainer, an electric oven and hob, and integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher. An appealing breakfast bar with elegant pendant lighting completes the ensemble.
The bedroom offers two sash windows, also featuring shutters, allowing for commanding views of the Cathedral. Built-in storage cupboards are conveniently provided, and the bedroom has direct access to the en-suite bathroom. The en-suite features a modern white suite, complete with a shower over the bath, and an additional built-in storage cupboard adds to the room's functionality.
