Property Description

Hidden behind an unassuming façade, this historic home offers accommodation that exudes grandeur, unique views towards the sea, Walberswick and across the marshes as well as a south facing garden, all concealed away from the road.

The property, previously, Park Villa, was built in 1833 as a two storey house with a third floor being added by John Eustace Grubbe in the 1850's. In 1949 the house was sold at auction, the third floor was removed & the building divided vertically into three separate dwellings, the east side now known as 22 Park Lane.

A gate leads into the driveway, offering parking for a number of vehicles as well as a detached single garage. Entering the property via the main entrance hall, a cloakroom is situated to your right. An impressive glazed door leads you into a hallway, with pamment tile flooring, that opens up into the stairwell, the property boasts the original staircase for the building, so is a particular feature of Number 22. The kitchen would now benefit from some updating, but offers a pantry cupboard and access to a porch where there is a further external door.

To the rear of the ground floor, a real highlight of this home, are the formal sitting room and drawing/dining room. These rooms radiate opulence with period features including beautiful cornices, ceiling roses and feature fireplaces. The sitting room also boasts ornate shelving with cupboards below and a door to the rear.

The ground floor accommodation is completed with a conservatory to the rear, accessed via the drawing/dining room.

Stairs rise to an impressive landing on the first floor with a large window to the west. To the rear sits the principal bedroom which leads through into a small room with three glazed sides, boasting truly stunning views across Skillmans Hill, towards the sea and across the marshes to Walberswick and further afield. To truly experience the spectacular views this property offers, we would strongly suggest arranging a viewing to appreciate them in person. There are two further double bedrooms, the largest of which has a sizeable built in storage cupboard and also enjoys the impressive views to the rear. There are a number of storage cupboards and an airing cupboard accessed from the landing. The first floor accommodation is completed with a family bathroom.

A beautiful established south facing garden to the rear is a particularly attractive feature of this home, mostly laid to lawn with borders providing a mix of plants and shrubs. A patio flanks the rear of the property. Attached to the rear of the garage is a useful outbuilding, previously used as a coal store.

Situated in arguably one of the best locations in the historic coastal town of Southwold, the property is within easy reach of the many facilities within Southwold and is only a minutes' walk to the beach. Southwold has a wide range of facilities that include good shopping, a golf course, a pier and sailing club. There are good transport links with a railway station at both Halesworth and Darsham with services to London Liverpool Street Station via Ipswich.
