Believed to date from the late 19th Century, Linnet Lodge enjoys a rich history and is thought to have been the original Coach House to the nearby Greene King brewery. Standing proudly on Maynewater Lane with generous gardens to the rear extending down to the edge of the River Linnet this truly unique property is located just yards from Bury St Edmunds historic town centre and its wide range of amenities. Predominately of red brick construction under a tiled roof, there is an immediate admiration of the attractive front aspect, giving just an idea of the extensive accommodation that is on offer.Today the original Victorian town house has been further complemented with sympathetic extensions and modernisation, which has resulted in what can only be described as an exceptional example of a premium town centre family home. With three double bedrooms all of which with en-suite facilities as well as a detached annexe and potential for a fourth bedroom within the main house, two parking areas, enchanted walled gardens, Linnet Lodge offers an ideal style of living whilst being in immaculate condition, a viewing is therefore highly recommended to fully appreciate the accommodation on offer.
