4 bedroom semi-detached house – Castle Street, Eye, Suffolk£299,950
Property DetailsLocation This property occupies an enviable position within this small and pretty north Suffolk town, being just a few minutes walk away from the shops and amenities. Eye offers a good range of day-to-day facilities including well regarded secondary schooling and is steeped in history with its castle mound and abbey remains. The surrounding countryside is attractive with many interesting country walks and the town is well placed for access to the A140 with both Norwich and Ipswich around 25 miles away, Diss and its mainline railway station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line (journey time to London 90 minutes) just 6 miles away and the Heritage Coast around Southwold, Aldeburgh and Walberswick within 40 minutes or so by car.
The Property This is a most interesting property with plenty of history and lies within the Conservation Area of the town. The corner front of the property was once a shop and the large cellar beneath the house retains the original bread ovens. The living accommodation has been updated over the years but without compromising the character and feel of the house and it is pleasing to see that original period features abound. The interiors are spacious and light with good ceiling heights and there are attractive stained glass windows which allow light to flood in to the dining area and the first floor landing. The layout currently provides for three reception rooms but one of these could equally serve as a bedroom as there is a shower room on the ground floor. The kitchen lies to the rear of the house and is on a split level with the dining area. The kitchen has Shaker style kitchen units with granite worktops, a Britannia range cooker and a one and a half ceramic sink and to one end are French doors opening directly out to the terrace. There is space for a washing machine, dishwasher and tumble dryer.
The cellar is indeed remarkable by its sheer size and easily useable as the ceiling heights are good. To one end are double doors which open out to the street above. There is also a door which leads out to the rear garden. On the first floor are four spacious bedrooms and a family bathroom. The largest bedroom has fitted cupboards which house the hot water tank.
Outside The property is accessed off Castle Street and there is separate pedestrian access into the rear garden off Lowgate Street. There is a small area of garden which is largely covered with a pergola and this is separated from the raised decked area immediately to the rear of the house by a path which gives access to the neighbouring property and over which the neighbour enjoys a right of way.
Services Mains water, drainage, gas and electricity are connected to the property. Gas central heating.
Directions From Diss proceed to the A140 and head south towards Ipswich. Turn left onto the B1077 and head directly into the town. Continue through the town centre and 28 Castle Street will be seen on the corner of Castle Street and Lowgate Street, clearly marked with a For Sale board.
