Build your dream lifestyle with a new home in Castleton Grange
Castleton Grange is situated on the northern edge of Eye, a jewel of a town in the heart of Suffolk with no shortage of historic sights and everyday amenities. Within a 10-minute walk of the development you’ll find the main road through the town, lined with a range of shops and food outlets, including a chocolaterie, gift shops, antiques shop and arts centre. Attractive period buildings are at every turn, including the striking Victorian brick and flint Town Hall. Continuing down past the shops you’ll reach the magnificent ruins of Eye Castle, around which the town was built and which is thought to date back to the 11th century.
On a practical note, Hartismere Hospital is just a five-minute walk from the development, and 10 minutes away the town of Diss hosts several large supermarkets and train station.
There is much to explore in the surrounding area, too. For a wider selection of shops and attractions, as well as national transport links, Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich and Norwich are all within an hour’s drive. All three are attractive destinations with more than enough shops to balance out the rural location of Eye. Meanwhile, a 45-minute drive east will take you to the beautiful Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, not far from the popular seaside town of Southwold.
With an idyllic local community and the region’s best offerings within easy reach, Castleton Grange is a place you’d be proud to call home.
The weekly Eye Country Market showcases a range of locally-made food, Eye Arts Guild bring together local artists each week, Banks Arts Centre hosts regular quizzes, and you can watch performances and productions at Abbey Hall Creative Space.
10 minutes away in Diss there’s a leisure centre with a calendar of events and classes, and for a livelier scene you could head to Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich or Norwich for some nightlife.
And for some fresh air, nearby Pennings nature reserve, Thornham Walks, and Thetford Forest Park provide great opportunities to get out into nature.
Eye is home to the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Hartismere High School along with St Peter and St Paul primary school, both in easy walking distance of Castleton Grange, while a wider range of schools for all ages can be found a short drive away.
Alongside the development, Persimmon is also providing major contributions to local schools, health services, the library, transport services, and sports and play equipment, making this fantastic location even more family-friendly.
Eye is conveniently situated just off the A140 which connects Norwich and Ipswich, while Bury St Edmunds is a straight route down the A143. The area is well-connected with local bus routes, and the nearest train station in Diss, where you can catch direct trains to nearby centres and London Liverpool Street.
For travel further afield, Norwich International Airport is less than an hour away.
