10 Well Street
A thoroughly modern architectural take on a classic Georgian town house, set in the culture-steeped market town of Bury St. Edmunds.
Stay at one of the most favoured addresses in Bury St. Edmunds, an exquisite Grade II listed Georgian town house that sleeps up to 4 people. Step inside, however, and you'll discover that 10 Well Street is a Georgian town house quite unlike any other!
Though the house has retained its classic historic features, it has undergone a stunning transformation in recent years courtesy of renowned architects IF_DO, turning it into a contemporary holiday haven packed with stylish creature comforts. The venture was so successful that 10 Well Street was recently featured in Architects' Journal's prestigious ‘Staff Picks' for the best 2017 small design projects.
With your accommodation luxuriously spread over three floors, you'll find 10 Well Street beautifully spacious and light throughout, with attention to detail and plenty of design-led flourishes. Feel immediately welcomed as you step through the front door and survey your perfectly designed, fully centrally-heated holiday home.
The sitting room is deliciously cosy, featuring an electric wood burner-effect fire and a velvet sofa that's perfect for snuggling up with a book on colder days. Further along the corridor, an open living area features oak flooring, a vaulted ceiling and a large feature window to make the most of your private, landscaped garden...the ideal spot to chat and catch up over coffee!
You'll find the contemporary, well-equipped kitchen a joy to prepare your meals in, with up-to-the-minute fixtures and fittings and a stylishly sociable table and chairs to swap holiday stories around. The handy utility room next door houses a washer/dryer and a sink.
Take the luxuriously carpeted stairs to the first floor, where you'll discover the elegant master bedroom with its comfy super king size bed and stunning furniture. The bathroom is built for modern opulence, attracting plenty of natural light and featuring a decadent bath just waiting to be filled with bubbles!
Continue to the second floor and find a delightfully furnished second bedroom right at the top of the house, with an authentic Georgian-style low ceiling and featuring super king ‘zip and link' beds that allow you to furnish the room as a twin or a double.
Head outside to the west-facing private garden, beautifully landscaped with block paving and grassed borders...just right for sitting outside and shooting the breeze on a heady summer's day.
Fully Wi-Fi enabled and with a TV, you'll find you won't need to entertain yourselves in traditional Georgian style! However, those interested in historical heritage will find their heaven in Bury St. Edmunds, with its fascinating medieval streets, architecture and Georgian squares that will take you right back to times past.
Perhaps begin your holiday with an invigorating stroll through the lush Cathedral and Abbey Gardens with their children's play areas, all within easy reach of 10 Well Street? Kids will love the open parkland at nearby Howton Park and Hardwick Heath...perfect for burning some energy with imaginative adventures.
Shopaholics won't be disappointed either, with so many opportunities for retail therapy as far as the eye can see. The award-winning market is held twice weekly and offers fine local produce including cheeses, breads and flowers. Cafes and dining opportunities are abound of course, with a popular pub just a short walk from the house.
So why not call in at 10 Well Street, a warmly welcoming holiday home infused with the calming spirit of times past, with a hearty helping of modern style and comfort built in!
