Property Details


Whilst Victoria Hill leads in and out of town, this particular property sits tucked away with four other properties within the development, away from the road and therefore no passing traffic save for immediate neighbours. Well placed, close to the edge of the town, the house is therefore close to the excellent network of rural footpaths surrounding Eye and on directly to open countryside - a haven for walkers and dog owners alike. In fact, it is possible to walk 360 degrees around the town, only crossing a road to get from one path to another. From Victoria Hill the town centre is easily reached by foot enabling access to the many and varied facilities on offer. Whether young or old the town has something for everyone including a comprehensive range of shops, primary and high schools (plus Sixth Form), health centre and bus routes. Furthermore, a number of cultural activities take place throughout the year including Theatre, Classical Concerts and an Art Exhibition. Positioned centrally within Norfolk & Suffolk the principal towns of Ipswich, Norwich & Bury St Edmunds are all within a similar distance of around 20 miles. Equally, the busy market town of Diss is around 5 miles distant providing, amongst other things, a mainline rail station with commuter service to London Liverpool Street in around 90 minutes, making the area popular and convenient for commuters.


This cottage style house presents a most attractive frontage upon arrival having left the road and followed the Private drive between woven wattle fencing and established trees, before opening out for the houses, Parking is discreetly positioned at the rear of the property along with a convenient gate in and out of the garden plus access to and from the garage, including directly to and from the garden. The garage itself benefits the garden greatly by virtue of the red brick construction which serves as a lovely backdrop soaking up and reflecting the sun. Internally, a surprisingly large hallway verging on almost being worthy of being described as a room, greets arrivals and serves as a hub to the ground floor and from where a straight staircase rises to the first floor accommodation. The pleasing colour tones of the interior are carried through the house complemented by excellent natural light from windows on all four sides rather than the more typical front and rear. Windows are double glazed and gas fired radiator heating: the original boiler having been replaced by a Worcester Greenstar. Gardens extend around three sides with the opportunity to have access around all four sides of the house.

Entrance Hall

17'5 x 9'5

A light, roomy and welcoming hallway with initial entrance space before opening out into the main space which creates a very pleasing effect upon arrival through the multi-point locking outer door. Stairs at one side rise to the first floor spaces and contain a cupboard beneath and white panel internal doors lead off to the remaining ground floor areas. Finishing touches include ogee cornicing and above average skirting boards and architraves, as used throughout the interior.

The first floor is notable for being set partially within the roof space in traditional cottage style and consequently featuring an element of low sloping ceilings and vaulted effect throughout.

It is fair to describe the gardens at this house as 'landscaped'. Much thought and effort has clearly been input to what was originally a 'new house garden' to create a lovely combination of factors. Immediately to the rear of the house with the backdrop of the red brick sun catching garage is a brick and clay pamment laid surface joining a further Indian Sandstone circular feature surface for the owners table and chairs. Planted areas intersperse the hard landscaping creating visual impact and variety before leading around to the lawn which itself is bordered by lovely planted beds and a functioning Koi fish pond complete with rocky water fall. To top everything off, on site woven wattle fencing was installed to enclose the majority of the garden leaving an apron of lawn at the front to set off the house on arrival. Naturally, outside lights are fitted along with an outside tap. A side area whilst currently fenced off at the front could accommodate a further gate for side access to and from the front. The GARAGE and parking space borders the rear of the garden and has an up and over door at the front and pedestrian door to and from the garden. Internally the garage measures approximately 17'8 x 9'1 (5.41m x 2.78m) and has power and light connected and painted floor. Additional 'Visitor' parking is provided at the end cul de sac should it be required.


The vendor has confirmed that the property benefits from mains water, electricity, gas and drainage.
