Property Details


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 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". The excellent shops include for example the friendly 'institution' that is The Handyman Stores and also 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 particular property is essentially at the heart of the town just along from the Town Hall.


Tucked away behind the main street sits this detached period cottage just across from the Town Hall and Queens Head. An ideal 'lock up and leave' , holiday let or as has been the recent case, a successful rental property on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy the property offers much more than simply being a principal home: a role it is more than able to fulfil. Early in 2018 the cottage underwent an extensive programme of improvement including replacement of kitchen and sanitaryware, complete redecoration inside and out along with new floorcoverings which includes stylish seagrass matting. Most recently the decorators have returned to freshen up the cottage in readiness for the new occupant.


Approached via a traditional panelled door to an initial area often missing from many of the town cottages and a most useful space to any property, Seagrass matting is laid throughout much of the interior.
