Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This wonderfully situated late-1960s house designed by the architects Gordon White & Hood, is located overlooking the beach at Aldeburgh. This is a rare example of an outstanding Modern house in an excellent seaside setting. The property has three bedrooms (the master bedroom has wonderful sea views), an open-plan kitchen / living / dining room and both a front and rear garden. There is a garage with an electric door, plus one space in a shared car park. It is situated at the end of a short, staggered terrace of similar houses (Aldeburgh Lodge Gardens) on the site of the former gardens of a large country house.

Refurbishment has been carried out by the current owners, who have installed oak floors and new aluminium-framed double-glazed windows. They have also landscaped the rear garden. All work has aimed to be in keeping with the design of the house. The architects Gordon White & Hood clearly conceived of the scheme with a view to making the most of the wonderful setting. Full-height glazing on both the ground and first floors allows sea views and create a fantastically bright space.

Aldeburgh Lodge Gardens is located approximately five-minutes’ walk from the centre of Aldeburgh, which is renowned as one of Britain’s most attractive coastal towns. It offers superb opportunities for walking, fishing and sailing. The town provides an outstanding selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, and is renowned for the annual Aldeburgh Music Festival and the Dunwich Heath and Minsmere Bird Reserve. It also has something of a reputation for outstanding Modern architecture – notable examples include the house of H. T. Cadbury-Brown in Church Walk (1964), Snape Maltings (a malt house converted by Arup Associates in 1969 under the instructions of Benjamin Britten) and the recently built Dune House by Jarmund / Vigsnæs.

The house is approximately 7 miles from Saxmundham railway station, which runs commuter services direct to London Liverpool Street in just under two hours. The station also runs services to Ipswich, which offers connections to London Liverpool Street throughout the day.
