Full DescriptionThis magnificent Victorian four storey property stands prominently on South Green in the heart of Southwold.
Acton Lodge has a colourful and prominent history within the town. Built on the site of the The Nor'Sea Boat, a former public house & later becoming the Customs House before being redeveloped in 1872 by a William Hotson who named the house Acton Lodge after Caroline Acton, a well-known benefactress.
The house offers fine classic Victorian grandeur with features including large rooms and high ceilings, fireplaces, original wooden floors & large windows. Of particular note is the 'Turret' Room which offers wonderful far-reaching views to the north, east, south & west. A roof terrace offers fine sea views to the east & views across the marshes to the west.
The Victorian splendour of Acton Lodge is complimented by a modern streamline kitchen & four bathrooms, two of which are en-suite. All have been carefully incorporated ensuring that the character of the property has been retained.
The well-known & popular town of Southwold offers a good range of shops including two supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, boutiques & gift shops. A lovely sandy beach is within a few minute's walk as is the pier & Lighthouse. For those interested in outdoor activities there are golf, tennis & sailing clubs in Southwold & lovely walks along coastal paths. Many events take place throughout the year including the week long Arts Festival in June & the ever popular Christmas Lights switch-on.
