South Green Lodge is, arguably, the most impressive of a group of properties designed by Elizabeth
Wayth in 1820. Originally built as two lodging houses the property has impressive accommodation with split level floors which further enhance the feeling of space. Of particular architectural interest are the two balconies with wrought iron columns and balustrades and the French casements, to the upper ground floor sitting room, with shutters and decorative wreath relief above. Views from both balconies are, quite simply, stunning.
The property is set back from the green by an enclosed paved courtyard area which gives access to the property's entrance lobby. The lobby has plentiful space for coats and boots - perfect after a blustery walk on the beach. Half glazed double doors lead in to a well fitted kitchen/dining room which is flooded with light from large windows to the side and rear. The garden room, located at the rear of the property, is accessed from the kitchen area as is the half basement which accessed via a trap door and is divided in to several areas, one of which retains original slate shelving. Stairs from the dining area lead up to an impressive reception room which is classically proportioned with a corner fireplace and access to the balcony.
The master bedroom suite occupies the majority of the first floor and is generously proportioned with access to its own balcony area. An en-suite shower room is located to the rear of the room and is fitted with a double sink, wc and large walk in shower enclosure. Also located on this floor is a useful utility room accessed off the landing.
On the second floor there are three further bedrooms with one currently being utilised as a snug/study. A family bathroom, at the rear, completes the accommodation.
Outside, there is vehicular and pedestrian access to the rear of the property where a single garage is located. Please contact the agent for further information regarding ownership of the rear outside space.
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.
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.
