Property description

This very appealing 3 bedroom detached period cottage is tucked away in the heart of Eye, away from traffic. Three bedrooms with bathroom lie to the first floor with the ground floor being well balanced with large sitting room plus dining room off the social kitchen plus a cloakroom.

Location - The historic town of Eye 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 impressive 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". This particular cottage is found on Buckshorn Lane a quiet narrow lane linking Castle Street and Church Street with little traffic passing through. Both Castle Street and Church Street are formed by the outline of the historic motte and bailey castle outline and lead on to the renowned Church. The cottage is well orientated taking advantage of the arcing sun as it passes across. The town centre facilities as well as open countryside and footpaths across the fields are the proverbial stones throw away. The excellent shops include for example the friendly 'institution' The Handyman Stores, two butchers, bakers, a fine deli, two supermarkets and chemist and many others complementing those found at neighbouring Diss (approximately 5 miles). Diss is fortunate in being able to offer among 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.

Description - White Lion Cottage formed part of the historic White Lion Hotel complex for many years until being separated following the closure and subsequent residential development of the buildings towards the end of the 1980's. More recently this quietly positioned cottage underwent an extensive refurbishment and improvement programme involving reorganising the layout, refitting of kitchen and bathroom fittings etc and general overhaul, by the previous owners before being sold to the current owners by Harrison Edge. The practical, well proportioned living space comprises good sized main reception room with fireplace along with social kitchen dining space combined through a square opening. By establishing the main entrance at the front, facing onto Buckshorn Lane, french windows from the dining room now lead out to the paved walled garden. Furthermore, clever reorganisation of a side entrance has created a downstairs cloakroom. A gas fired boiler supplies domestic hot water and radiators throughout. Tastefully decorated and carpeted, the cottage has "The Look".
