About this property

  • The property has been designed and constructed to take advantage of the fabulous views over the River Alde. The house, which is situated where the river bends to the west has been constructed on a curve with large windows that overlook the panoramic river views in both directions, both east towards the yacht club and the sea and to the west towards Iken. The views continue across the river to the far banks which rise up with undulating countryside & woodland providing a beautiful backdrop to the spectacular river views.

    The house itself now requires some refurbishment but there is great potential to enhance and improve the property. There is a self contained annexe comprising a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom on the fist floor, accessed via its own external staircase. The gardens are a particular feature of the property and a paved terrace borders the house to the south/south west giving way to a spacious lawn flanked by mature beds well stocked with shrubs and hedging beyond. The garden drops down away from the house right down to the banks of the river. To one side lies a bird hide, nestled in among the mature garden yet situated directly on the banks of the river providing great potential for future purchasers. A gate gives access to the river where a dinghy can be launched to give access to the mooring which the current owners have used throughout their ownership under licence.

This is a very rare opportunity to acquire one of the very finest positioned houses on the River Alde. The views are exceptional and being positioned closest to the river gives an unrivalled view both towards Iken & the moorings. Coupled with the ability to have a mooring at the end of your garden the property is remarkably special.

Local information

  • The property is situated on the edge of the town of Aldeburgh and is positioned in one of the most sought after private residential settings on the banks of the River Alde. The immediate setting is extremely rare with gardens leading down to the river providing access via a dinghy to a private mooring which the current owners have used under licence. The property provides an opportunity to purchase one of the very best positioned houses in Aldeburgh. It sits closer to the river than other river bank properties yet is elevated and benefits from the views over the river in both directions, making the position incredibly rare. The sought after coastal town of Aldeburgh is centrally positioned in the Suffolk Heritage Coastline with superb recreational facilities including sailing and fishing on the coast and River Alde, a number of 18 hole golf courses are in the area including Aldeburgh's own course within easy walking distance, Snape Maltings, the home of the famous Aldeburgh Festival is about 5 miles away and the town benefits from a variety of excellent shops, public houses, restaurants and a cinema. Saxmundham, which is about 8 miles has a station which connects to Ipswich and its direct line to London's Liverpool Street station.
