About this property

  • Sea Mist is a unique, spacious home in about half of an acre. Occupying a superb, elevated position, there are far reaching views across the estuary and River Orwell. The substantial family home has well-proportioned, light-filled rooms totalling approximately 3695 sq ft.

    Sea Mist was built in the early 1970s and was designed by the local architects of Abbots Swale's, based in Bury St Edmunds.

    Set on a no-through road, the house is approached over a private drive. The front door opens into a delightful double height entrance hall, which benefits from large floor to ceiling windows, creating a superb, light filled space. To the right is a well-proportioned kitchen/ breakfast room with stunning river views, ample storage and integrated appliances. Beyond, there is a useful utility room.

    The wonderfully proportioned, double aspect sitting room has high ceilings and enjoys views across the fields, water meadow and the river.

    There is a further, triple-aspect, sitting room on the first floor, which offers wonderful views over the estuary and River Orwell. This room is a fabulous entertaining space and opens out to a generous roof terrace, perfect for alfresco dining with exceptional views over the river valley.

    The reception hall stairs lead a delightful principal bedroom with en suite. There are three further good-sized double bedrooms, a family bathroom and sauna.

    Sea Mist has secluded, attractive gardens of about 0.5 of an acre. There is an exceptional south facing terrace, providing outstanding views across the estuary and River Orwell. The garden beyond is laid to lawn with shrubs and mature trees. Steps from the terrace lead down to a further area of garden. The driveway leads to a substantial double garage and a greenhouse.

Sea Mist has amazing views over the river Orwell, which I love. The house is well-proportioned and has potential to be a great family home.
