Property Details


50 Church Street sits back from the road behind a period red brick wall and enjoys a fabulous view of the historic parish church and Guildhall, two of the principle noted landmarks. Nicholas Pevsner in his work, The Buildings of England describes the church as "one of the wonders of Suffolk". This historic town is blessed with an array of shops and businesses enabling residents to be essentially self sufficient and has in the past been voted one of the 10 best places to live in Britain. 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, up to date films, classical music concerts and annual art exhibition. In addition to the excellent food shops and services, the friendly town is also renowned for antiques and objets d'art. The town's Primary School is adjacent to the Guildhall and feeds into the highly regarded Hartismere High School across town. The surrounding countryside is accessible via an excellent network of public footpaths which start only a short distance away from the house and head across the fields making the area ideal for the rambler and dog owner. The town layout owes much to the motte and bailey castle the mound of which sits behind the house enabling Castle Street and Church Street to evolve. Consequently, from here one can approach the town in a clockwise or anticlockwise direction taking in many of this Georgian town's interesting period buildings along the way.


50 Church Street has undergone a major renovation over the past three years resulting in the footprint of the property becoming unrecognisable from the building sold by auction on the passing of its previous and only owner occupier. Believed to have been built in the 1960's, this rare town centre property now caters for the modern day family or indeed retirees. The house itself offers three first floor bedrooms along with en suite and family bathrooms plus to the ground floor, a study or if required, a fourth bedroom. The almost open plan living space is light, bright and airy and works well but could just as easily be modified to separate a lounge from kitchen dining area if preferred. The hallway enables a practical and important circular flow and contains not only storage but also a ground floor cloakroom. The exterior has been rendered and the roof relaid along with all windows and exterior doors newly installed. Much of the interior has also be reorganised and modern day materials used to upgrade internal walls to include acoustic insulation. Heating, wiring and plumbing has also renewed and the project recently completed with the laying of new carpets complementing the smart laminate flooring. Outside and unusually for Eye, the house has a vehicular right of way from Church Street to a gated driveway and parking area to the rear of the plot which also contains a garage. There is parking for three or possibly four cars behind the gates. Attention to detail has extended to the garden whereby the plot has been cleared, lawn established along with new pathways and restoration of a versatile garden building plus outside wc.
