Full description

Set well back from the road lies this Georgian two bedroom townhouse enjoying a fine outlook from an elevated position and with garaging and parking to the fore. A classic ground floor with elegant reception room, hallway and dining etc combines with study, courtyard and outbuildings.

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. It is fortunate to have a view towards the grounds of Stayer House 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.
