A stunning example of mid-twentieth century architecture encapsulated in this stylish three bedroom town house, notable for its clean lines and generous spaces with large windows that contribute to an overall feeling of lightness and wellbeing. The property, which is located in a residential close on the edge of Aldeburgh's vibrant town centre, is just minutes walk from the beach and the High Street galleries and restaurants. The house is of traditional brick on block elevations beneath a tiled roof, and is constructed in the style of "Span" housing. The accommodation includes three double first floor bedrooms which are served by a smart contemporary bathroom. The ground floor comprises a wonderful open plan living/dining room with a picture window and French windows that overlook and open onto a paved terrace and the delightful landscaped rear garden. There is a smart, well appointed kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with integrated appliances including an induction hob and double oven, and a water softener. The spacious reception hall incorporates a utility cupboard with plumbing for a washing machine and there is a useful downstairs cloakroom plus an integral store cupboard, accessed externally from the front courtyard. The property also benefits from a loft room which has clerestory windows to the front and is accessed via a loft hatch from the landing. This space, if accessed via a loft ladder could provide a useful study space. There is residents' parking to the front of the house. The development was designed in the 1960s to provide safe traffic free outside spaces. The garden backs onto light woodland which provides an attractive back drop to the house, enhancing its privacy and seclusion. The garden has been designed for easy maintenance and has paved seating areas and brick pathways. The garden is attractively arranged with raised planters and a rear gate leading to a small "adopted" area which has been planted with native species hedging to attract wildlife. There is a delightful summer house which could be adapted to create a home working space. The house has undergone a recent programme of modernisation (2018/2019) and this work has included the fitting of a new gas combination boiler; a new 'low step over' bath with shower above and bespoke Sharps bookcases and storage in the sitting room and bedroom three. An internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate the style, standard and versatility of the accommodation offered within.
