Located on Bury Road in Newmarket, one of the town’s most sought after roads, Wynyard House is for sale for a guide price of £999,950.

It was named by the then Lord Derby after his horse won a major race by a yard, creating the name ‘Wynyard’.

The property enjoys spectacular accommodation of 3700 sqft having been modernised whilst maintaining many period features, such as parquet flooring and ornate fireplaces.

The property further benefits from gated driveway parking and a private rear garden, all of which is located directly beside ‘Lord Derby’s Gap’, the horse walk that links Bury Road with the Heath.
