Full description

Completed four years ago and with a continuing NHBC warranty, 5 The Cygnets is one of a small development of fine houses which enjoy spacious and quiet living. The property features colourwashed elevations under a traditionally pitched and tiled roof and internally it provides exceptionally well insulated and spacious accommodation extending in all to approximately 3700 sq.ft. (approx. 344 sq.m - gross internal floor area). 5 The Cygnets offers versatile, well proportioned accommodation, ideal for family living and with the benefit of a self contained annexe with a large bedroom and shower room off a second staircase landing.

5 The Cygnets is situated towards the end of a secluded cul-de-sac in a popular residential close off Saxmundham Road between Aldeburgh's vibrant High Street and the Aldeburgh Golf Club.

Aldeburgh is a fashionable, unspoilt seaside town in a picturesque position on East Suffolk’s popular Heritage Coastline, a landscape characterised by wide skies, shingle beaches, river estuaries and heathland, creating a delightful environment for walking, birdwatching, golfing and sailing within some two and a half hours driving distance of central London. Aldeburgh’s busy High Street is known for its interesting range of brand name fashion shops, local shops, excellent restaurants and galleries and the town is famous for its Annual Festival for Music & Arts and its active cultural life, a legacy of Benjamin Britten’s long residency in the town.

Follow the drive bearing left at its end and turn right into The Cygnets and No 5 is the second property on the right hand side.
