The Links, believed to be one of the largest properties in Southwold, is an impressive family residence offering extensive accommodation over 3 floors with panoramic views from the front over Southwold Common to Walberswick and the sea. The property has well proportioned light filled rooms with notably high ceilings on the ground floor and amongst a number of focal points are the central atrium in the hall which goes all the way up through the floors to a glazed dome on the roof and the main family living room which is very much the hub of the house.
Entering the property, the entrance hall gives access either side to the formal dining room and the drawing room (currently used as a study/library). The hall continues to the centre of the house which has stairs to the upper floors and the aforementioned atrium over. This leads to the wonderful and truly unique open plan family room which has a dining area, kitchen area with an extensive range of fitted units under granite work surfaces with built in sinks and appliances - oven, gas hob with cooker hood over, fridge and freezer and twin dishwashers. A lobby off the kitchen has a drinks storage area with racking, shelves and wine cooling fridge, off the dining area is the utility room which has twin washing machines and twin tumble dryers. The main sitting area is extremely spacious and opens out on to the rear garden and centres on the spiral staircase which gives secondary access to the first and second floors.
On the first floor is the stunning master bedroom suite which has a sitting room with access on to the balcony with views of the Common, a large double bedroom and en suite bathroom. Also on this floor are two guest bedrooms both with en suite bathrooms.

The second floor has four further bedrooms and two separate shower rooms and a sitting room which would seemingly work equally well as a playroom.
The Links has a shingled front garden and a good sized rear garden with patio and timber garden shed.

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 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 with many concerts being held at the Snape Maltings complex. Transport connections can be found at the main A12 road which is about 4 miles away and from there takes 1 - 1½ to reach the M25 and there is a railway station at Darsham (7 miles) which provides a service (via Ipswich) to London Liverpool Street in about 2 hours.

Enter Southwold going straight over the mini roundabout and proceed up Station Road, turn right towards the Common and Harbour (just before the former Kings Head public house). Proceed along this road and turn left immediately before the Common - this is Godyll Road and The Links will be found on your left hand side on the bend. For SatNav the postcode is IP18 6AJ.
