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 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' 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 offers 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.


This spacious FIRST FLOOR APARTMENT is well presented offering stylish living space within a significant period town building. Accessible from either the main entrance hall or a private access to the rear the interior offers two bedrooms, sitting room, smart shower room and sizeable kitchen comfortably accommodating a table and chairs.
