Property Description

Having been substantially extended and renovated by the current owners, the property offers approximately 3026sqft of accommodation over two floors in the main property. Entering via the porch, there is plenty of space for coats and boots after a day exploring the coastline. An entrance hall connects the living accommodation and sleeping quarters on this floor.

Of particular note is an impressive kitchen/dining room measuring approximately 13m by 5.8m at its maximum with a large island. Bifold doors open on to a sandstone terrace with steps down to the remainder of the large garden. This room offers plenty of space for a large dining table as well as sofas, ideal for socialising. Accessed from the kitchen is a useful utility room with additional sink and storage space

There are two double bedrooms on this floor overlooking the garden, one of which has substantial built in wardrobes. There is also a beautifully presented family bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower.

The ground floor accommodation is completed by a large studio with vaulted ceiling. Although currently used as a studio, this room has a separate WC, which could accommodate a shower, and its own rear doors so could be used as a separate element to the main accommodation if required (subject to any necessary permissions).

Stairs rise from the entrance hall into a light and spacious sitting room. Large windows maximise on the view with a door opening out onto a balcony, ideal for soaking up the sun. The sitting room is filled with light through windows at the front and rear of the property and is currently also used an office space and library area. The principal bedroom is situated on the first floor and is a particularly spacious room with ensuite shower room, balcony accessed via sliding glass doors, vaulted ceiling and a built in wardrobe space set up with shelving all of which creates a particularly impressive and impactful room. There is a further bedroom with vaulted ceiling and ensuite shower room.

Outside the front of the property faces on to Gorse Road, where there are two parking spaces, however the main driveway is accessed via Bridgefoot Corner, not far from the bridge into Southwold. The gravel driveway provides parking for a number of vehicles with further parking available in a detached double garage with additional workshop space. Above the garage is additional useful accommodation.

The garden is beautifully divided including lawn, raised beds for growing vegetables and an attractive terrace.

Situated just a short stroll from the seaside hotspot of Southwold, the property provides a fantastic peaceful retreat away from the busy coastal town whilst ideally located to enjoy all the restaurants, seaside attractions and shops that it has to offer.

The popular village of Reydon offers a number of local amenities. Reydon provides a number of shops, public house and medical centre with Southwold offering an abundance of local shops, restaurants and coastal attractions.

Reydon is situated three miles from the A12 and therefore offers good transport links by both road and rail with a train station at both Halesworth and Darsham with services to London Liverpool Street Station via Ipswich.
