Full description

A late Victorian/early Edwardian semi detached townhouse, within the family for decades and now requiring certain refurbishment. 2 Bedrooms with first floor bathroom combines with hallway, two reception rooms and kitchen. A garden with side access lies to the rear. Offered for sale with No Onward Chain.

Location - The historic town of Eye is blessed with an array of shops and businesses enabling residents to be essentially self sufficient. With schools, both Nursery, Primary and High, a Health Centre and varied social and recreational opportunities, all age groups are catered for. The town includes an impressive mix of architecture and interesting buildings especially when one considers the impressive properties towards the fine, historic Church. With a tower of 101feet, the renowned Nicklaus Pevsner in The Buildings of England (Suffolk) describes it as "one of the wonders of Suffolk". The house is found on the approach to the Church along Castle Street, following the outline of the former motte & bailey castle and is the proverbial stone's throw from town centre facilities as well as open countryside and footpaths across the fields. The excellent shops include for example the friendly 'institution' The Handyman Stores, two butchers, bakers, a fine deli, two supermarkets and chemist and many others complementing those found at neighbouring Diss (approximately 5 miles). Diss is fortunate in being able to offer amongst other things an 18 Hole Golf Course and importantly a well used commuter rail service which runs between the Cathedral City of Norwich to the north and London's Liverpool Street Station.

Description - 27 Castle Street is a semi detached brick house of good proportion and well situated within the town. Owned for many years, the property does now require certain modernisation works although the property has been reroofed at some point in the recent past along with some electrical updating. The traditional layout comprises two reception rooms with kitchen off a hallway to the ground floor along with two bedrooms and bathroom to the first floor. The first floor is divided in part by studwork partitions and therefore may offer scope for reorganisation.
