Property Details


18 Wellington Road sits quietly along a little used road with restricted access to keep traffic to a minimum. Within walking distance of the town centre facilities, the property is convenient located for not only access to the shops but the open countryside and surrounding network of rural footpaths. Eye is extremely well served by day to day amenities, shops and Health Centre and is renowned for the varied cultural activities that take place throughout the year, not least theatre productions, classical music concerts and an annual art exhibition. In addition to the excellent food shops and services, the friendly town is also renowned for its' specialists in books, antiques and objet d'art. The surrounding countryside is accessible via an excellent network of public footpaths ideal for the Rambler and the wider area contains an array of interesting villages, and towns with the Coast 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. Furthermore, Diss offers additional sports facilities including an 18 Hole Golf Course, Tennis & Squash Clubs, an Indoor Swimming Pool and Gyms.


18 Wellington Road is one of four classic 1960's bungalows built at a time when good sized living space and plots were factors of high importance. This particular property, occupied quite possibly by only two owners in its near sixty year lifetime offers practical and well laid out living space within a garden, large enough for the keenest of gardeners. A driveway leads off the road with this having been widened in recent years to allow additional parking if required. Neighbours have in fact created turning/parking space wider still and this may be of interest to those with a need to accommodate say a caravan or mobile home. A central hallway serves as a hub to the living space and provides a welcoming first impression upon entering the property. Two double bedrooms sit to the front of the property, both double in size or indeed suitable for a double and single if children and grandchildren come to stay. In addition to the lounge at the rear is a sizeable conservatory, added within the last twelve years and serving as a second reception room. The kitchen is fitted around three walls providing extensive storage and worktop and includes appliances such as fridge, freezer, oven and hob. An original bathroom is now a wet room with drained floor and shower. Windows are as one would expect, double glazed with PVCu frames and gas fired radiator heating was installed in around 2010 with a Vaillant boiler supplying domestic hot water and radiators. The interior has recently been painted through and carpets cleaned and is now ready for sale with no onward chain.


Approached via a glazed PVCu replacement door along with a glazed side panel providing additional natural light plus a coir mat well. This central hall, featuring white panelled internal doors, moulded architraves and skirting boards, serves all rooms and incorporates both a built-in general cupboard along with an airing cupboard complete with hot water tank fitted with an immersion heater.
