Guide price £2,000,000
An elegant Georgian town house with sea views enjoying a prominent position in the heart of Aldeburgh close to the beach and High Street. Listed Grade II and understood to date from 1790, Wyndham House is attached but disassociated from its former rear wing and today presents some 5,600 sq ft of accommodation set on four floors. Facing south and east and with elegant regency style elevations, the house offers light, well laid out and flexible use accommodation all set within delightful walled gardens. Within the accommodation, which benefits from a mains gas fired central heating system, features a central reception hall set off which are three stunning principal reception rooms. All have high ceilings and include, an elegant twin aspect drawing room with deep sash windows and an attractive curved elevation, an equally well-proportioned dining room with a feature sash window, herringbone pattern parquet block flooring and a fine fire place. The third, referred to as a games room/sitting room, could have also been called the ballroom and is a real ''wow factor' room, suitable for a variety of uses, with a wood boarded floor and central French windows opening onto a secluded garden terrace. The ground floor is completed with a well-equipped kitchen from where there are attractive views across the garden, together with a rear hall and a pair of cloakrooms. There is a total of seven bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms on the first and second floors above, with many of those rooms enjoying views across the varied rooftops of Aldeburgh towards the beach and sea beyond. The second floor landing is wide enough to be used as a study area and there is access onto a delightful area of roof decking from where there are further coastal views. An impressive basement has recently been refurbished with the former vaults creating a wine cellar and laundry, as well as offering access to a scullery/workshop with an external access. The private shingle driveway sweeps to an extensive parking courtyard to the side of the house fronting onto which is a range of three secure garages plus a workshop. Wrought iron gates open into the delightful gardens. Situated mainly to the south and east of the house and partly walled these feature beautifully maintained lawns, well stocked and colourful herbaceous and shrub borders and a wide paved terrace, with a central, shaped swimming pool overlooked by its own summer house. A line of mature holm oak trees provide further shelter and despite being so close to the very heart of the town the gardens provide a surprising private setting. In all the property extends to about 0.4 of an acre. Wyndham House enjoys a prominent position at the end of the High Street close to the seafront and within sight of the beach and sea beyond. Such a location provides easy access to the many and varied amenities that Aldeburgh has to offer. The thriving coastal town offers a wide range of local shopping and commercial facilities, together with restaurants, pubs and hotels, a library, cinema and Cottage Hospital. There are a variety of sporting clubs and societies, including golf, sailing and tennis. Directions From Ipswich travel in a north easterly direction on the main A12.
