12 Chaucer Street comprises a 0.16 acres (0.06 hectares) site with a mix of buildings including a 3-bed cottage with cart entrance at the front, a separate single storey office building in the middle and a collection of single storey workshops and garages at the rear. The offices and workshops used to serve as a stonemasons and funeral director's but are now vacant. The cottage is let to a long-term tenant. Chaucer Street is primarily a residential area, just off Earsham Street in Bungay's town centre. Clays printworks is located at the end of the street, as is a large pay and display car park. The property can also be accessed (at the rear) via Broad Street.
