Location Crew Quarters occupies a prime position within the centre of Aldeburgh, overlooking the High Street to the front, as well as the surrounding roofscape, beach and sea to the rear. Aldeburgh is one of the region's most popular seaside towns and well known for its annual carnival, held in mid August each year which takes place along the High Street, immediately outside Crew Quarters. The High Street is thriving offering an excellent range of local shops with a Co-op supermarket, fine restaurants and art galleries. The town also benefits from a cinema, library, doctors' surgery and hospital. The town has its own golf and yacht clubs and nearby Snape Maltings, with its world class concert hall, is home to the Aldeburgh festival. Other attractions in the area include the popular resorts of Thorpeness, Walberswick, Dunwich and Southwold, together with nature reserves at RSPB Minsmere and Havergate Island. There are also ancient castles at Orford and Framlingham. The neighbouring market town of Saxmundham (7 miles away) has Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets and a railway station with direct and connecting services to London Liverpool Street Station. The County Town of Ipswich lies about 25 miles to the south-west. 

Description Crew Quarters is a spacious two/three bedroom apartment arranged over three floors, extending to just under 1,200 square feet in all. The property was extensively renovated approximately 15 years ago, together with the neighbouring property, Waterfront Cottage, and the ground floor retail premises fronting onto the High Street, which is currently occupied by Crew Clothing. Last year the vendors refurbished almost all of the property throughout, and it now presents very well indeed. The accommodation comprises a secure ground floor entrance lobby, which leads to both Crew Quarters and Waterfront Cottage, an entrance hall, kitchen/dining room and 16' sitting room with large bay window overlooking the High Street. On the second floor is the master bedroom, with fully glazed French doors and Juliet balcony providing views over the neighbouring rooftops and towards the beach and sea beyond, and an en-suite shower room. There is also a second bedroom and an extremely well fitted bathroom. On the third floor is an attic room, which could be used as an office, play/games room or additional bedroom, and this benefits from Velux windows to three elevations providing almost panoramic views of the High Street, surrounding roof tops, beach and sea.  

Terms Crew Quarters is to be sold leasehold with an unexpired term of approximately 110 years. The current ground rent is £100 per annum, payable to the freeholder, Gorse Developments Ltd, which is a locally based company. The lease provides for the ground rent to double every 25 years.
