Aldeburgh River Views

The Gables is a superbly situated, spacious seven bedroomed town house with exceptional far reaching views over the River Alde. The house which is constructed predominantly from brick has great character with features such as open fireplaces, well-proportioned rooms and bay windows which take advantage of the superb views from the upstairs rooms.

The owners of the house, which has been in the same family since 1880, have converted an attached outbuilding to create a spacious garden room with French windows opening out to the terrace and gardens. The layout of the accommodation works remarkably well with a central hall opening out to the main reception rooms on the ground floor and a large landing serving the bedrooms on the first floor. The top floor bedrooms that face south have the finest views over the river, the marshes and the sea.

The gardens of The Gables lie to the south of the house and are lawned with several fine mature trees. There is a large paved terrace to the south fronting the garden room and to the rear lies a parking sweep fronting the garage and outbuildings.

Peter Ogilvie of Savills in Ipswich, who is marketing The Gables with a guide price of £1.75m comments: “Coastal houses such as The Gables rarely come to the market, especially having both stunning river and sea views, mature spacious gardens, and ample off road parking. The Gables is superbly set in both a central but private location within easy reach of the river, beach and high street and is yet tucked away from the hustle and bustle of this popular seaside town. The Gables would make a wonderful family home or delightful holiday house for someone looking for a bolt hole on the Suffolk coast.”
