Property description

This classic semi detached double bay semi offers 3 bedrooms, over 100' of rear garden, 2 reception rooms and requires extensive modernisation. Owned within the same family since construction in the mid 1930's this is an increasingly rare opportunity within Eye. No Onward Chain.

Location - Avondale, 7 Victoria Hill sits behind a hedged frontage and private roadway serving the property and immediate neighbours. The location allows for a lovely walk into town via Lambseth Street serving as a taster for the Listed architectural gems spread around the town. The Conservation Area starts at the juncture of Lambseth Street and Victoria Hill and is noted for the impressive serpentine or crinkle crankle wall of Chandos Lodge, former home of Sir Frederick Ashton, and the picturesque Almshouses. It leads into the commercial centre of the town at Broad Street and onto Church Street and Castle Street providing lovely walks around the outline of the former motte & bailey castle, passing the Guildhall, Stayer House and the fine parish church which Nicklaus Pevsner in his work, The Buildings of England describes as "one of the wonders of Suffolk". This historic town is blessed with an array of shops and businesses enabling residents to be essentially self sufficient and was voted one of the 10 best places to live in Britain. Eye is also renowned for the varied cultural activities that take place throughout the year not least theatre productions, up to date films, classical music concerts and annual art exhibition. In addition to the excellent food shops and services, the friendly town is also renowned for antiques and objets d'art. The surrounding countryside is accessible via an excellent network of public footpaths ideal for the rambler and dog owner with the wider area containing an array of interesting villages, and towns. The coast is only a 45 minute drive away. For the commuter the mainline rail station at Diss provides services to the Cathedral City of Norwich to the north and London's Liverpool Street Station, London being reached in around 90 minutes.
