Full DescriptionThis classic Georgian residence can be found in a commanding position on South Green offering stunning views of Suffolk's beautiful heritage coastline.

On the first floor are five further bedrooms and two bathrooms many rooms having iconic original Georgian features.

The well-known and popular town of Southwold offers excellent facilities including hotels, public houses, restaurants, a good range of shops including two supermarkets & a primary school. Near-by is the well-known private school of Saint Felix.
Iconic landmarks within the town include the lighthouse and the pier. A wonderful sandy beach provides acres of sand for all age groups to enjoy with the adjoining promenade offering an array of brightly coloured beach huts, many of which can be hired out. These are interspersed with beach cafes with steps along the promenade giving easy access to the town.
Southwold has changed very little over the years & still offers much of its original charm and character. Gun Hill still retains its famous cannons which protected the town during the battle of Sole Bay in 1672.
From the town, Ferry Road leads to the harbour, where there are a selection of businesses & a public house. A small ferry boat can be taken across the river to the neighbouring quaint village of Walberswick. There are many lovely coastal walks to enjoy along with golf & sailing.
