Oak Crescent was developed in a time when houses were built for families and for life. Consequently, this house and neighbours has a large garden facing towards the town along with a frontage providing off road parking along with an open aspect towards the Green. The town centre is walkable via Wellington Road and a footpath leading directly from the estate - ideal for children. Eye is extremely well served by day to day amenities including supermarkets, butchers, bakers, library, pharmacy, public transport, clubs and societies along with both a Primary and High School. The High School includes a Sixth Form Centre. The surrounding countryside is accessible via an excellent network of public footpaths ideal for dog owners or simply exploring the area. The wider area contains an array of interesting villages, towns and the Coast is only a 45 minute drive away. For the commuter the mainline rail station at Diss provides services between the Cathedral City of Norwich to the north and London's Liverpool Street Station with access greatly improved by new roundabouts at the A140 junctions. Furthermore, Diss offers additional sports' facilities including an 18 Hole Golf Course, Tennis & Squash Clubs, Indoor Swimming Pool and Gyms.
30 Oak Crescent was originally constructed by the Local Authority to provide practical post-war family accommodation with large garden. These 'modern classic' homes provide excellent opportunity for todays young families having three good sized bedrooms along with roomy ground floor. This particular example has combined two reception rooms into one along with the addition of a sizeable conservatory at the rear. The kitchen includes a pantry or utility space to one side along with a rear lobby leading to and from the garden. Windows are double glazed within PVCu frames with outer doors to match and gas fired radiator heating is installed throughout. A replacement gas fired boiler was installed in June 2023. Of particular note is the large rear garden which provides scope for additional parking to that found at the front and includes a large blockwork and timber workshop.
An outer door includes a glazed decorative panel and opens to a good sized hall where stairs at one side rise to the first floor via a half landing. A stairwell window provides additional natural light and a view of The Green. Double radiator. Panel doors lead off to...

No.30 along with its neighbours sits slightly back from the road enabling off road parking. This particular section of properties is fortunate in having access from Pine Close at the rear enabling access to the large rear gardens. No.30 is no different and has great potential for off road parking and potentially a garage. Currently a large WORKSHOP sits toward the rear of the garden and measures internally 15'4 x 11'3 (4.67m x 3.43M). Power and light is connected to the space which has a concrete floor and formed from a blockwork plinth and timber framed upper and felt roof. The garden itself is a tremendous space compared to more recently built houses. New estate houses do not have gardens anywhere near as large as this! Adjoining the conservatory a terrace area has been created sheltered in part from the house and with an elevated view across the garden. A lower paved area leads onto the lawn where a central pathway leads onto the Workshop and far end of the plot. By the patio and terrace a pond has previously been a feature and with restoration could again be a splendid addition to the garden. Hedging, plants and shrubs provide natural details and with only bungalows behind on a gently sloping site, the backdrop towards the town is one of a large sky across a southern plane.
