No.25 Church Street forms part of a red brick terrace of cottages, within the Conservation Area of the town. Within walking distance of the town centre facilities, the property is ideally set for those seeking a convenient location ideal for not only access to the shops but also open countryside and the surrounding network of rural footpaths. 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, annual art exhibition and weekend long celebration of Town gardens. In addition to the excellent food shops and services, the friendly town is also renowned for shops specialising in books, 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 and the Coast that is only a 45 minute drive away.
No.25 whilst presenting a classic Victorian red brick to the front, contains within extensive exposed timbering suggesting a much earlier building. The pretty front elevation, with two over two cottage casement windows sets itself apart from the immediate neighbours and is arguably the principal frontage within the row as a result. Behind the front door lies practical living space which has, for previous owners, been a stylish Holiday Let and full time home in addition to having been further improved. The layout includes sitting room across the front of the property with to the rear a comfortable kitchen dining space. Upstairs importantly, is a fabulous bathroom complete with panelling, stunning bath and suite to match in addition to an oversize shower enclosure. Both bedrooms and the bathroom can all be found off the surprisingly large landing which also features fitted wardrobes. Outside, across the courtyard, lies a section of the barn which extends across the rear of the cottages and which No.25 owns a central section. This space currently provides storage but with renovation should provide further space as illustrated by the neighbouring property and the conversion of their space to a useable studio having brought the first floor fully into play.
