This attractive two bedroom Georgian townhouse has in recent years been sensitively and completely renovated and is now offered first-time to the rental market. Accommodation includes versatile living space which flows seamlessly from the Sitting Room, open-plan to Dining Room and pleasant Garden Room through to the Kitchen (fitted with a full set of appliances). Of particular note is the handsome exposed red brick fireplace, the stone-effect porcelain floor tiles with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and a breath-taking double height vaulted Principal Bedroom suite with exposed rafters and cross beam. Plentiful storage and a very useful laundry room (fitted with both a washing machine and condensing tumble dryer) complete this easy town centre living. A serene and secluded courtyard garden is positioned to the rear of the property and permit parking is available.

The property has been thoroughly refurbished behind the scenes, with completely modernised electric and plumbing systems with the addition of double and secondary glazing throughout – lighting played an important role in the design of the space as well as a paired back approach to decorating to showcase the wealth of original period features.


55 Whiting Street is conveniently located within the historic Cathedral town of Bury St. Edmunds and is situated in arguably one of the most desirable residential enclaves and conservation areas (the medieval Norman Grid formed by intersecting Churchgate, Guildhall & Westgate streets). The bars, restaurants and independent boutique shops of Abbeygate Street and the Market Square are nearby. Excellent A14 access is afforded by Westgate Street via Southgate Street. Refer to our brochure Situation page to discover more.


55 Whiting Street is rich in attractive original period features well-blended with modern comforts and benefits from a complete renovation; as featured in The English Home magazine. The flexible and relaxed accommodation measures approximately 1039 sq ft (96.5 sq ft) and will suit a broad range of tenants, whether visiting USAF personnel or young professionals – all who seek convenient town living.
