Full description

A substantial and greatly appealing Grade II Listed townhouse complete with three double bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms, three reception rooms, cellar and delightful walled courtyard garden. Much character, style and town centre living space lies within.

Location - 3 Castle Street lies within a Conservation Area in the heart of the town centre and behind the facade is generous living space. With the town's assortment of shops all within walking distance, the house is a rarity given the accommodation on offer and the position it occupies. The historic town of Eye features many points of architectural interest from a history dating back to before Norman times. The fine Parish Church with a tower of over 100 feet has been described by the renowned Architectural Historian Niklaus Pevsner as "one of the wonders of Suffolk". Furthermore, the motte and bailey castle mound and ruin can be seen from many parts of the town along with the church. In addition to the shops, Eye is renowned for the varied cultural activities that take place throughout the year not least theatre productions, classical music concerts and annual art exhibition in addition to events at The Bank Arts Centre. The surrounding countryside is accessible via an excellent network of public footpaths ideal for the Rambler and dog walker with the wider area containing an array of interesting villages and towns. The Coast is only a 45 minute drive away. For the commuter the mainline rail station at Diss provides services between the Cathedral City of Norwich to the north and London's Liverpool Street Station. Furthermore, Diss offers additional sports facilities including an 18 Hole Golf Course, Tennis & Squash Clubs, Indoor Swimming Pool and Gyms.

Description - This splendid house presents a balanced symmetrical elevation to the street comprising two large period former shop windows. Listed as being of Architectural and Historic Interest Grade II, the property offers much character both externally and internally. The extent of the spacious accommodation is certainly not readily apparent from external inspection but once inside, one will certainly be surprised by the number and size of both the reception rooms, bedrooms and that two shower rooms and a bathroom are also included (one shower room being downstairs). The ground floor 'flow' is also worth noting given the central hallway and configuration of doorways allowing circular movement throughout. Furthermore, the ground floor offers a utility room to the sizeable kitchen plus a cellar. The first floor is similarly well proportioned providing three double bedrooms, en suite shower room and family/guest bathroom plus a versatile additional room suitable as either a walk-in Closet or Box Room. Outside, a most appealing walled courtyard can be found which benefits from an access Right of Way along the driveway adjacent. Recently, a significant programme of refurbishment works have been carried out including overhauling of sash windows, redecoration both inside and out, newly laid carpets and general repairs. Gas fired heating is installed with radiators throughout.
