Full description

Highbanks is an extended detached bungalow hidden away in an elevated position within walking distance of the town. The flexible 4 bedroom interior comes complete with good living and ancillary space and is set within tremendous gardens that extend to around 0.42 acre (0.17 hectare).

Description - Highbanks sits nicely back from Victoria Hill in an elevated, discreet location providing good privacy from the road. Within walking distance of the town centre facilities, the property is ideally set for those seeking a quality and convenient location. Eye is extremely well served by day to day amenities and shops and is renowned for the varied cultural activities that take place throughout the year, not least theatre productions, classical music concerts and an annual art exhibition. In addition to the excellent food shops and services, the friendly town is also renowned for shops specialising in antiques and objet d'art. The surrounding countryside is accessible via an excellent network of public footpaths ideal for the Rambler and the wider area contains an array of interesting villages, towns with the Coast 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.

Description - Prior to the current owner this individual town bungalow was occupied by a well known Eye family for over forty years. The current owner moved to the property from within Eye proving the merits of living in the town and the property itself. During this more recent ownership considerable improvements have been carried out including not only refurbishment of the original space but also alterations and extensions providing a separate dining room, further bathroom and large conservatory - the conservatory taking full advantage of the glorious garden. Unlike many bungalows, Highbanks offers multiple, flexible rooms linked by a generous central hallway adding to the sense of space. Furthermore, the roof space many years ago (if not when first constructed) is partially boarded as an attic space and accessed via a drop down hatch and ladder. Windows are double glazed with PVCu frames and gas fired radiator heating installed.

Bedrooms comprise two principal rooms along with two further bedrooms if required, making four in total. Of course, the two secondary bedrooms could serve as a choice of Study space depending on preference or ideal guest space. The interior also features a practical sized Utility Room conveniently located to the rear of the property and with an outer door from the garden - ideal for coats, boots and acting as a 'buffer' to the main living space.

Highbanks is particularly well maintained and presented both inside and out and in more detail comprises:-
