    About this property

    • Occupying a spectacular position with far reaching views over the sea and marshes, The Battery is a single storey dwelling comprising well proportioned, light filled rooms with high ceilings and double glazed windows.

      The front door leads to the entrance hall. To the west is a kitchen, dining room, sitting room and two sun rooms. To the east are three bedrooms, a family bathroom and shower room. All these rooms enjoy fabulous views across the beach, to the sea and spectacular marshes behind.

      The Battery is set in about 3.8 acres. The enclosed garden contains a variety of plants, shrubs, and established trees. The grounds extend beyond the fence which is part of the shingle beach. There is ample parking and a double garage.

      The Battery is in need of total renovation, subject to the necessary consents.

      There is an abundance of history at Shingle Street, which was known as Shinglestreet in the late eighteen century.

      Shingle Street was originally a place where fishermen and pilots stayed to help navigate the River Alde and River Ore, over the treacherous shingle bar.

      Early in the 19th century, during the Napoleonic Wars, Martello towers were built to act as a deterrent against foreign invasion. The Martello towers were later homes for the coast guards. Many of the original buildings date from this period.

      The area is now a small community of homes and the sense of a place steeped in mystery and history remains.

    The Battery is set in the most wonderful and beautiful position. I especially love the uninterrupted views over the sea, river and marshlands. Now requiring renovation and modernisation, The Battery offers a unique opportunity to create an extraordinary seaside home.
