I loved Cranbrook, it is set in one of my favourite spots in Southold with amazing far reaching views across the Blyth Valley and down the coast towards Dunwich. It has a wonderful feeling of space, garden and parking and being in good condition provides a wonderful combination which is so rare to find in Southwold.
