Proceed out of Bury St Edmunds along Out Risbygate and at the mini roundabout, turn left into Westley Road. Continue along and take the third left turning into Gainsborough Road. Turn right into Minden Drive, where the property is located towards the end of the cul-de-sac, on the right.
This splendid property, understood to have been built in 1957, has been the subject of a comprehensive and meticulous programme of refurbishment, with attention to quality and detail. Works have included the provision of a new gas combination boiler, electrical updates, replacement double glazed windows, doors and roofline, solid oak internal doors, re-fitted Kitchen, Bathroom and Cloakroom, decoration and stripping and polishing of original Parquet woodblock floors and exposed floorboards.
This attractive home provides spacious, well-proportioned accommodation with high ceilings of about 2.49m (8'2'), which together with some large windows afford a light and airy atmosphere. Subject to the necessary planning permissions, we feel there is considerable scope to extend, both on the ground floor and by converting the roof space.
Properties of this nature rarely become available, in what is one of the most desirable areas on the western side of town and being located towards the end of a cul-de-sac. Convenient, both for the town centre and other nearby amenities, together with a local bus service, we strongly recommend viewing at the earliest opportunity.

BURY ST EDMUNDS & AREA
Sitting amidst beautiful countryside, Bury St Edmunds is an historic town and the second largest in Suffolk. Surrounded by many picturesque villages, some of which offer good local amenities, it offers a wide range of cultural, educational and recreational facilities.
Features of particular note include St Edmundsbury Cathedral with its Millenium Tower, the famous Abbey Gardens with the original ruins and The Georgian Theatre Royal, which has recently been the subject of a restoration programme and The Apex, a live performance venue for concerts, comedy and dance, together with a contemporary art gallery. In addition, there are two cinemas, one of which is a multi-screen complex and a sports centre.
Bury St Edmunds and the surrounding villages boast excellent schools and further education is catered for at the West Suffolk College.
The town benefits from extremely good shopping facilities with a twice weekly market and a wide range of independent traders, national chains, five supermarkets and the arc shopping centre, opened in 2009. In addition, there are many pubs and restaurants which cater for a variety of tastes.
