A much loved detached three bedroom bungalow at the centre of Eastbridge, occupying a large plot with views towards open countryside and within a very short walk of the Eel's Foot Inn. Meldon has been well maintained and offers tremendous scope for extension and modernisation. The accommodation, which is double glazed and centrally heated by oil-fired radiators, includes a large sitting room/dining room with a fireplace and patio doors to the garden and sun terrace. There is a fitted kitchen/breakfast room, three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The garage has been divided and converted to provide a reduced store room and a very useful outside office/studio. Being an integral part of the building these (now two rooms) could be adapted again and incorporated into the main accommodation. The garden is a notable feature of the property. It is very private, sunny and beautifully landscaped with extensive lawns which are interspersed with mature trees and shrubs and has an attractive water feature at the front. The driveway affords good off street parking and there is space to create additional parking for boats/trailers etc.

Meldon lies at the heart of the picturesque Suffolk village of Eastbridge, on the threshold of Minsmere and ideally situated for access to the Suffolk Heritage Coast and the seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold. There are two nearby pubs: The Lion Inn at Theberton and the famous Eel's Foot at Eastbridge. There are walks from Eastbridge onto Minsmere nature reserve and a delightful walk, just down from the Eel's Foot, which winds its way through the marshes all the way to the beach. The nearby towns of Leiston and Saxmundham offer good local shops. Saxmundham has a Waitrose and a Tesco supermarket. The railway station at Saxmundham provides connecting services to London, Norwich and Cambridge. Leiston has a sports centre and swimming pool, cinema and a museum dedicated to the town's proud industrial heritage. There are golf courses at Aldeburgh and Thorpeness and sailing on the Alde/ Ore. Among the many other attractions in this part of Suffolk are the ancient castles at Orford and Framlingham and the world famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall which is home to the Aldeburgh Festival. This part of Suffolk has become a haven for writers, artists and musicians.
