Property Details


Denmark Cottage can be found towards the Church, on Church Street and forms part of an historic terrace of properties within the Conservation Area. Within walking distance of the town centre facilities, the location is ideally set for those seeking a quality and convenient character home. Eye is extremely well served by day to day amenities and is renowned for the varied cultural activities that take place throughout the year not least theatre productions, classical music concerts and an annual art exhibition. In addition to the excellent food shops and services, the friendly town is also renowned for shops and businesses specialising in the arts, antiques and objet d'art along with schooling to include Primary, High School and Sixth Form, all within walking distance. 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 is only a 45 minute drive away. For the commuter the mainline rail station at Diss provides services between the Cathedral City of Norwich to the north and London's Liverpool Street Station. Furthermore, Diss offers additional sports facilities including an 18 Hole Golf Course, Tennis & Squash Clubs, Indoor Swimming Pool and Gyms.


This surprising property, showing an attractive brick elevation to the street, hides behind the facade extensive living accommodation, fascinating garden along with former Smithy building, parking and a paddock extending to just under half an acre. Previously two cottages, the current owner has combined the two in order to make this splendid period town house with all the ingredients and more, one could want or expect in Eye. The central entrance enables access to rooms either side which include sitting room, dining room, study and a lounge opening out onto a sheltered raised terrace. A central garden room forms a glazed link between cottages and leads into the superb Aga kitchen. Upstairs, four bedrooms are served by a large character bathroom with shower along with an additional separate wc not withstanding the downstairs wet room and wc. Outside is where the real surprises lay with owned vehicular access leading off Church Street, at the end of the terrace, to a parking area, former Smithy building including stable plus a fenced and netted paddock. The paddock extends to just under half an acre at approximately 0.40 Acre (0.17 Hectare).

The property helps form the attractive street scene within Church Street as one nears the historic Church and Guildhall. Cleverly recessed within the front elevation, a wrought iron gate leads into an initial pamment floored area prior to reaching the principal entrance door.

A GARDEN STUDIO/SHED building is currently used as a crafting space and has 3 phase power and light connected, fitted floor standing units, shelves and worktop. A window provides an outlook to the lower reaches of the garden. A LOG STORE (logs available by separate negotiation) adjoins this studio and has a light. For the gardener, a 8 x 6 greenhouse will remain featuring thermostatically controlled openings, electric lighting and piped underground Calor gas supply to a Sahara Hotbox greenhouse heater. A separate purpose built cupboard houses two Calor gas canisters. Adjacent to the greenhouse is a POTTING SHED with power and light.

Denmark Cottage includes a driveway leading off Church Street which opens out to a sizeable vehicular area providing parking and turning for not only this property but also owners of Nos 45, 47-49 Church Street where it is an obligation to provide each of the properties with a parking space. The Barn has a right of way along the drive for vehicular and pedestrian access and owns the space upon which their car is parked. Between the parking spaces and The Smithy is a grassed area serving as an 'apron' to the building with to the side, space for a further vehicle which currently is the owners caravan. The driveway and parking area is bordered by a lovely old brick wall to neighbouring Tudor House and which through the summer is lined with pretty hollyhocks.

Beyond this space lies the PADDOCK, through a traditional 5-bar field gate, the paddock extending to approximately 0.4 Acre (0.17 Hectare) and is well fenced, including post and rail along with being netted. Currently the fencing contains a terrier which for those familiar with the breed pays testament to the fences. It is possible to let a dog out of the cottage to run through the garden and straight into the paddock as a side pedestrian gate from the garden combines with further gating from the parking area. Interested parties may be interested to know the owner will sell, by separate negotiation, a Stiga mulching ride-on tractor mower.
