Positioned above an attractive 19th century shop frontage – designed by a London shopfitter in 1897 with the original elegant display cases still in situ today. Abbeygate Street was once called Cook Row (having had its name changed in 1792) and was in essence the clockmaking quarter of the town with seven clockmakers registered as operating there during the Victorian period. One of the longest established clockmakers ‘W H Collis’ operated from the shop premises from 1805. The arrival of mass produced clocks from America ultimately ended British clock production in local workshops entirely by 1870. The property dates from 1720 and benefits from a complete renovation by the current landlord and local builders of renown – Mothersole. A wealth of period features are retained and include a beautiful Venetian-style oriel window of the first floor former grand salon, architraves, coving and many other details. Behind the handsome red brick Flemish bond façade, the accommodation has been transformed into stylish town centre ‘loft living’. Of particular note is the open-plan living area with breakfast bar and separate study and the tall ceilings throughout.

The apartment’s residents’ lobby with intercom system accesses the vibrant street scene to the front with the benefit of allocated off-street parking to rear, in addition to permit-parking.
