Property Details


With the Wellington Road address, this property forms part of the Bennett Homes development known as Maltsters Yard and latterly titled Old Brew House Court for those further within the development. Set towards the Church Street end of Wellington Road. No. 27a forms the ground floor section of the detached building comprising its matching example above. Together the two apartments present an attractive detached house appearance to the road. This quiet position with little passing traffic is within easy reach of the town centre shops and facilities enabling a life at the heart of the community. The historic town of Eye features many points of architectural interest from a history dating back to before Norman times, and the fine Parish Church with a tower of over 100 feet described by the renowned Architectural Historian Niklaus Pevsner as "one of the wonders of Suffolk". Furthermore, the ruin of the motte and bailey castle can be seen from many parts of the town along with the church. In addition to the shops, Eye is renowned for the varied cultural activities taking place throughout the year not least theatre productions, classical music concerts and annual art exhibition plus the events at The Bank Arts Centre. The surrounding countryside is accessible via an excellent network of public footpaths ideal for the Rambler and dog walker with the wider area containing an array of interesting villages and towns. Eye is part of the Welcome Walkers scheme. 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.


27a Wellington Road is a GROUND FLOOR APARTMENT which combined with its matching neighbour above, presents an attractive detached house appearance to the front. This particular property is further enhanced by having a front door at the front as opposed to the property above, at the back. Built by Bennett Homes as part of the Maltsters Yard development Harrison Edge was instrumental in selling the property to the current owner and for whom we now act. The property and those neighbouring within the scheme are only available for purchase by those over the age of 55 ensuring a certain quality of life. Communal garden space sits within the 'square' and is well maintained under the auspices of the Management Company made up of residents. This particular property is also fortunate in having a front garden similarly maintained within the scheme so occupiers do not have to deal with gardening themselves. Internally, the well planned interior has a central hallway of good size serving as a hub to the rooms spread out around with two bedrooms at the right, spacious bathroom (with shower) ahead plus double aspect main reception room and kitchen to the left hand side. Parking is allocated to the property at the rear and is numbered along with an additional lockable store room to store cupboard found adjacent to the front door.
