Property Details


Flint Lodge occupies a discreet position set back and hardly visible from the road, just off Lowgate Street and Orchard Close. The shops and facilities are a relatively short walk uphill via Lowgate Street but then in Eye, nothing is very far away. The town layout owes much to the motte and bailey castle which enabled Castle Street and Church Street to evolve. From Hayward Close one can approach the town in a clockwise or anticlockwise direction taking in many of the town's interesting period buildings including the fine parish church which Nicklaus Pevsner in his work The Buildings of England describes 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 was 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 surrounding countryside is accessible via an excellent network of public footpaths which start just beyond Hayward Close making the area ideal for the rambler and dog owner.


Flint Lodge is a handsome individually designed home providing four bedrooms across two floors along with two lovely sized reception rooms plus kitchen with breakfast room beyond. The wide attractive frontage, of both the plot and building strike a very positive note and are further helped by a roomy parking area to one side. The sheltered entrance leads into a good sized reception hall from where the remainder of the accommodation unfolds. Having inspected the property on a wintry but sunny day it is clearly a statement home which benefits from good natural light making the breakfast room and reception room at the rear great morning rooms: both opening onto the terrace and gardens. Two double ground floor bedrooms each have a wash basin and use of the ground floor bathroom. Upstairs, two further double bedrooms are served by a further bathroom and each feature access points to eaves storage.. The larger of the two first floor bedrooms includes a long built-in wardrobe along one wall taking advantage of the sloping roof. As one would expect, windows are of the PVCu variety and double glazed along with plastic fascias and vented soffits leading to easy maintenance. The original gas fired boiler has been replaced with a Vaillant Eco Tec Pro boiler supplying domestic hot water and radiators.

Flint Lodge enjoys a wide frontage enabling good vehicular access at one side, allowing cars to park out of the way leaving room for a lawn to extend across the property. The side area appears to offer scope for building a double garage (subject to obtaining Planning Permission) albeit this has not been necessary to date. Beyond lies a good sized Summer House positioned to one side, angled towards the property and with a good outlook across the garden to the terrace. Power and light are connected making a useful hobby space in addition to being a good spot to sit enjoying the position. The gardens themselves have been well landscaped in the past with different levels creating interest along with a currently drained pond by the terrace and a spread of lawn.. The good size garden has an unused concrete base in the adjacent corner to the summer house upon which could sit a further garden building. The rear of the property enjoys a southerly aspect looking onto private family owned fields alongside The Clancy.
