No.5 Ashton Road sits on the south side of the cul de sac with the rear elevation and garden taking full advantage of the position. The three roads comprising the development are all cul de sacs with Ashton Road especially, having little traffic movement. The area is linked to the town via a footpath leading into Wellington Road in addition to following the road via Victoria Hill into the Town Centre. The area contains a good mixed community appealing to the retired and families alike. 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 excellent shops include for example the friendly 'institution' The Handyman Stores, 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 Stat. 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".
Constructed by Wimpey Homes at the turn of the Century, this well proportioned semi detached home is one of relatively few found within Eye and whilst new homes are being built on the outskirts of the town this year, No. 5 offers tried and tested accommodation. The well maintained property, featuring PVCu double glazing and gas fired radiator heating, includes entrance hall, cloakroom, main reception room and a kitchen comfortably accommodating a dining table and chairs. The first floor is notable for not only three bedrooms and a bathroom but also an en suite shower room to the master bedroom. Furthermore, the master bedroom has built-in wardrobes providing excellent floor to ceiling storage. Outside, the orientation of the house allows the rear to take advantage of a southerly aspect and in my opinion the curvature of the road spaces the houses nicely away from each other. A garage at the side has parking space along with a door to and from the garden. A nice touch is the style of garage door which features mock glazing within the upper panels - a traditional style typical of the 1950's and attractive. Equally, windows feature integrated glazing bar detail.
Approached via a multi-point locking outer door protected by a canopy porch. An initial tiled area is ideal for leaving shoes and boots before venturing further inside. White panel doors lead off and continue through the house. Double radiator.
