SUPERBLY LOCATED HOUSE SET WITHIN MINSMERE BIRD RESERVE

Location

Fourwinds is situated in the Minsmere Bird Reseve in a secluded setting surrounded by mature woodland and with far reaching views over marshland to the south.

The village of Eastbridge is popular with a thriving pub, the Eels Foot and superb walks through the bird sancturary towards the coastal villages of Dunwich & Westleton. The walking in the area is unrivalled with heathland, woodland and marshland walks within easy reach.

The nearby village of Westleton has two pubs, a garage and a village shop. Saxmundham railway station lies just under 6 miles to the west and provides services via Ipswich to London's Liverpool Street station.

The house is close by to the popular Heritage coast towns and villages of Southwold, Walberswick, Dunwich, Thorpeness & Aldeburgh as well as being within easy reach of Snape Maltings, home of the Aldeburgh Music Festival.

Description

Fourwinds is substantial house, superbly located, constructed from red brick under pitched tiled roofs. Internally the house has great character with an open fireplace in the sitting room, bi-fold doors opening out to the terrace over which there are fine marshland views, solid oak floors and well proportioned rooms.

The house is well designed to take advantage of the views to the south west over the marshes and sits centrally within the plot. Externally the lawned gardens give way to mature woodland to the north, east and west through which there are numerous walks. There is a large double garage as well as a further red brick built outbuilding which could be well suited to a home office subject to the necessary consents. There is an array of wildlife in and around the gardens and the area has featured on BBC Springwatch.

There is also a further 14 acres of marshland which is available by separate negotiation with the property and is within easy walking distance.

DIRECTIONS

From the Leiston direction, take the first right hand turn to Eastbridge. Proceed into the village passing The Eels Foot public house on the right. Go over the small bridge and before the road turns sharp right, Fourwinds will be found on the left hand side.
