Property Details


The historic town of Eye has been described by a national newspaper as one of the top 100 Glories of Secret Britain. It 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 historic mix of architecture and interesting buildings especially when one considers the impressive properties towards the fine, historic Church. With a tower of 101 feet, the renowned Nicklaus Pevsner in The Buildings of England (Suffolk) describes it as "one of the wonders of Suffolk". The Buckshorn Lane cottage is found set back in close proximity to neighbouring properties forming what might today be called a 'Court' type setting. It is a proverbial stone's throw from town centre facilities as well as the open countryside and footpaths across fields. Equally the property is only a short distance from the many shops and facilities on offer. The excellent shops include for example the friendly 'institution' The Handyman Stores, two butchers, bakers, a fine deli, two supermarkets and chemist, 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.


This property was originally Nos. 13 & 14 Buckshorn Lane and now referred to as just No.13. It has been in the same family for many decades and is now offered for sale with no onward chain. In need of modernisation and repair, these two cottages have formed a single 3 bedroom property but suggest a considered scheme could return them to two independent properties. This idea could present a long-term investment opportunity if let out once completed. Windows have been double glazed with PVCu frames but otherwise modernisation and improvement is required. To the far end of the property is a lean-to building with storage space. Furthermore, opposite sits a separate workshop/store which whilst potentially useful, could perhaps be demolished to create outside space.
