Ashton Road is well placed to the edge of the town with the network of rural footpaths surrounding Eye and on directly to open countryside - a haven for walkers and dog owners alike. In fact, it is possible to walk 360 degrees around the town, only crossing a road to get from one path to another. From Century Road, off which Ashton Road can be found, the town centre is easily reached by foot enabling access to the many and varied facilities on offer. Whether young or old the town has something for everyone including a comprehensive range of shops, primary and high schools (plus Sixth Form), health centre and bus routes. Furthermore, a number of cultural activities take place throughout the year including Theatre, Classical Concerts and an Art Exhibition. Positioned centrally within Norfolk & Suffolk the principal towns of Ipswich, Norwich & Bury St Edmunds are all within a similar distance of around 20 miles. Equally, the busy market town of Diss is around 5 miles distant providing, amongst other things, a mainline rail station with commuter service to London Liverpool Street in around 90 minutes, making the area popular and convenient for commuters.
10 Ashton Road is an impressive, well designed detached house with Edwardian style evident from twin gabled bays, window patterns and a master bedroom complete with semi vaulted ceiling. Forming part of the well laid out Century Road development on the edge of the town, this particular property stands proudly within this particular cul de sac. The thoughtful orientation of the houses in the road and the wider development allows for a good degree of individuality with in this instance additional parking on the drive at the front of the double garage. Internally, the layout of the house provides not only two reception rooms but also a study, social kitchen breakfast room plus a conservatory. On the first floor four bedrooms combine with family bathroom in addition to a pair of en suite shower rooms. This style of house has allowed other owners elsewhere to commission the conversion of the roof space creating a tremendous two roomed studio and office equally useable as additional bedroom space. To enable this, the landing on the first floor was extended and a conventional staircase created. It would appear the same option is available here. Constructed around the turn of the century, this "Proper" house was designed with PVCu double glazed windows and gas fired radiator heating. More recently, the current owners refitted the kitchen with a smart range of units incorporating built-in appliances. The orientation of the house and design of the development has led to No10 having one of the largest if not the largest garden within the site.
