   Bury St Edmunds town centre is increasingly popular with purchasers who have discovered its incredible beauty and charm, together with the convenience of living so close to its extensive shopping and dining experiences.
Our cultural heritage is something we are proud of and is by no means a small reason why so many purchasers wish to enjoy the town’s rich historic attractions, including the Theatre Royal, the Abbey Gardens and the cathedral. There continues to be a growing desire to live in, and be part of, what is most definitely the Jewel in the Crown of Suffolk. We have recently sold a one bedroom flat overlooking the cathedral for £160,000 and a five bedroom townhouse on Guildhall Street with a guide price of £1,750,000.
