When completed, Abbots Gate will be an upmarket estate which will appeal to a range of buyers. The site’s 31 apartments are ideal first homes for young professionals, and the 35 modern town houses are perfect for families with a range of 2-, 3-, and 4-bedroom homes to choose from. The development is in the ideal position to offer new, modern homes on a previously established site near the centre of Bury St Edmunds.
The good news is that the site is now being prepared and cleared for work. Engineering drawings are in place, and several banks have submitted offers to fund the project through to completion (in tandem with investor funds). These offers are currently being studiously reviewed by Propiteer Limited’s team.
This is a sustainable site well located to provide homes close to Bury St Edmunds town centre … that will create a range of good quality housing, a distinctive sense of place and a high quality living environment.Strutt & Parker Property Consultants
About Abbots Gate
The Abbots Gate estate is centrally located with only a short 5-minute stroll to Bury St Edmunds town centre, heralded as one of the nicest market towns in the world and “Suffolk’s Foodie Town”. The biweekly markets, and especially the Christmas markets, are extremely popular attracting people from miles away to view the locally-produced wares sold here.
The town is home to plenty of inviting pubs and restaurants renowned for award-winning food. Many have gained 5-star ratings and Travellers Choice awards from Tripadvisor. The pinnacle of the town’s food scene is Maison Bleue, ranked in the top 1% worldwide. It recently gained a fifth consecutive “Best of the Best” award from Tripadvisor in 2020, which means it sits in the top 10 fine dining restaurants in the UK.
A great place to live with a 1,000 year history, Bury St Edmunds has its own magnificent cathedral as well as many attractions including the famous Abbey ruins (once the most famous pilgrimage location in England), water meadows, stunning country parks and even an Anglo-Saxon village. For those who enjoy golf, it is home to Flempton Golf Club, one of Suffolk’s best.
