Set back and elevated from the road, 1 Halesworth Road is a unique home which has been subject to an extensive extension, re-design and refurbishment. Previously a modest bungalow, this property was overhauled by the current owner in 2016 to provide a contemporary seaside home.
On entering the property you will find a central corridor which provides access to all major rooms, alongside a staircase to the first floor. The rooms on the ground floor flow effortlessly, weaving together contrasting materials, textures, colours and finishes.
The heart of the home is without a doubt the open plan kitchen-dining-living space to the rear of the house. This wonderful space is bathed in natural light courtesy of the bi-folding doors overlooking the garden and measures almost 10m x 10m in size. In the kitchen area, dark cupboards provide a contrast to the rest of the house, providing a refined and stylish distinction. This is a beautifully conceived space for relaxed entertaining and skilfully marries form and function with ample storage and dining space. Adjoining the main space is an additional reception room. This dual aspect room is currently used as a music/playroom. A utility, bedroom and shower room complete the ground floor accommodation.
Positioned on the first floor are three double bedrooms. The main bedroom is beautifully light and has south-west facing views, a dressing room/wardrobe area and an en-suite shower room. Elevated views from the window extend across to Southwold. Also on the first floor is a family bathroom which comprises separate bath and shower. The largest of the three bedrooms on the first floor, which has sea views, has been cleverly designed so that with the easy addition of a dividing wall, you would create two spacious double bedrooms.
To get back down to the ground floor, you can of course take the stairs but why would you when the property benefits from its own slide to effortlessly return to the ground floor level. Great fun for kids of all ages!
To the front of the house is a small lawned garden set behind an established hedge. Paths lead either side of the house connecting to the rear garden. Here you will find a raised dining terrace and a lawn garden before the back boundary. Also within the garden is a detached garage with parking accessed via Gorse Lane.
The village of Reydon is extremely popular and offers many facilities including a health care centre, shops and a hotel/public house. It also benefits from being on the doorstep of the renowned coastal town of Southwold approximately 15 minutes walk away. Southwold offers a beautiful sandy beach, boutiques, restaurants and much, much more. For those wanting to connect with nature, there are many footpaths near the property for you to enjoy.
From the Agent's Southwold office turn right and proceed along the High Street on to Station Road. Upon passing over the bridge and just beyond the Junction with Lowestoft Road, turn left in to Gorse Road, then immediately right on to Gorse Lane. The property can be found on the right.
All mains services are connected. (Durrants has not tested any apparatus, equipment, fittings or services and so cannot verify they are in working order).
Strictly by appointment with the agent's Southwold Office.
