An early 16th Century property extending to over 5,000 sq ft with a south facing garden positioned adjacent to Eye Castle. Positioned within a conservation area and set in the heart of the medieval market town of Eye, The Vinery occupies an enviable position, situated within approximately quarter of an acre, with south facing garden and affording views of both the castle ruins and the parish church. Believed to originally date from the early 16th Century, with later additions, the core of the property is of timber framed construction, presenting painted, rendered elevations beneath a mix of plain and pan tiled roofs, along with slate to the eastern elevation. Listed Grade II and extending to some 5,200 sq ft, the property is arranged over three storeys to offers generous and flexible use accommodation, with three principal reception rooms, AGA kitchen/breakfast room, impressive central library hall with timber cross beam, and garden room. There are five first floor bedrooms, the principal room benefitting from an en suite, in addition there are three further bathrooms, one of which is Jack & Jill. The second story comprises four formalised and usable attic rooms, offering the versality of additional bedrooms, study and studio/playroom. It is worth noting that the property was originally two separate dwellings, and retains secondary street access, meaning it is ideally suited for those with a multi-generational living requirement, or indeed those seeking an annexe. OUTSIDE Approached over Church Street, the shingled driveway provides ample parking provisions and gives way to the detached double garage. The south facing and landscaped garden offers a circular lawned area, edged with planted borders and a wide terrace, along with an aluminium greenhouse.
