The historic town of Eye has been described by a national newspaper as one of the top 100 Glories of Secret Britain. It 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 historic 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 cottage is found at the lower half of Magdalen Street but still a proverbial stone's throw from town centre facilities as well as the open countryside and footpaths across fields. Equally the property is only a short distance from the many shops and facilities on offer. The excellent shops include for example the friendly 'institution' The Handyman Stores, 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.
27 Magdalen Street is the clever creation of the previous owner who took the period house, returned it two cottages and extended it to the rear, the result being a superb pair of cottages each with their own identities. Owned since 'new' by our clients, this super stylish property offers three first floor bedrooms and bathroom along with a ground floor comprising sitting room, cloakroom and stunning social kitchen dining room complete with bi-fold doors onto the garden. All windows are double glazed including sash type windows and gas fired radiator heating installed throughout. Outside, the rear garden wraps around the building and beyond lies parking spaces for each of the two cottages. The striking kitchen features not only an island unit with quartz stone worktop and built-in appliances including fridge and freezer, dishwasher, 5-ring hob and eye level double oven plus microwave.
Approached via an exterior Storm Porch, a traditional outer door with glazed pane opens to an initial area complete with Cloaks Cupboard to one side. A smart oak boarded floor leads through to the Sitting Room and oak doors match throughout.
