Easy Access High Street and Sea Front


The Property
This excellent semi detached cottage offers accommodation with a wealth of character and occupies a great location with easy access to the sea front and Southwold’s High Street. Currently a successful holiday let Happy Cottage would seemingly make the perfect holiday retreat and earliest viewing is strongly recommended.

The property is accessed via an entrance lobby with stairs to the first floor and a door to the sitting room which has a stripped floor and fireplace with multifuel stove (2011). This opens to the dining area which also has a stripped floor, storage cupboard and understair cupboard. The kitchen has a range of fitted floor, drawer and wall units with a built in fridge, oven and hob, sink and dishwasher. A door from the kitchen leads to the utility area with worksurface, wall cupboard, washer/dryer and freezer and a hatch in the kitchen floor gives access to the useful cellar. On the first floor is a good sized landing with two double bedrooms off and a large bathroom with 3 piece suite and separate shower cubicle with power shower.

The garden of Happy Cottage lies at the front and is surrounded by low level walling and laid to well stocked shrub and flower borders with paved walkway and a patio area ideal for sitting out. Behind the property is a small enclosed yard with tubs border and hand pump, space for bin storage and a separate outside WC.

The historic coastal town of Southwold occupies a prominent position on the East Suffolk Heritage Coast and is well placed for access to all amenities in the area which is designated as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The town has a bustling High Street which offers a wide range of shops which cater for most day-to-day needs and there is also a library, unique small cinema and golfing and sailing clubs. The East Suffolk coast boasts a wide variety of attractions including many walks by the sea and inland, notably in Dunwich Forest, a network of designated cycle routes and for birdwatchers the renowned RSPB bird sanctuary at Minsmere. To the south is the coastal town of Aldeburgh which is home to the internationally famous music festival.
