Love to be beside the seaside – watch the tide from your bedroom and catch the scent of sea salt on the lawns while marine details inside remind you that the seafront lies on your doorstep.
You might not always see it but the sea comes part and parcel of this roomy Suffolk home. Full views of the tide ebbing and flowing next to the salt marshes are visible from three of the spacious double bedrooms. You’ll always feel a touch of sea salt on the air in the huge gardens and inside, the marine and nautical details remind you that The Gables enjoys a privileged spot by the sea.
Spread generously over three floors, living comes spacious and light with the entire house done in delicate whites and creams with the odd grey accents and of course, those seaside reminders. Whether it’s the jaunty nautical stripes, the pictures of fish and the friendly whale, or the sailing yachts on the window sill and mantlepiece, at The Gables you know you’re never far from the sea.
Two living rooms offer comfy seating with a cosy open fire (don’t miss the navy tile surround) in one and garden views in the other. Dine in the kitchen with the whale or in the bright and airy dining room; both spaces offer more than enough room for all your party. Or move outside onto the sweeping lawns where picnic tables, chairs and a barbecue offer perfect al fresco dining with a gentle sea breeze.
On the doorstep lie the delights of Aldeburgh, a Suffolk seaside town where life moves at a traditional pace in tune with the tide. Buy fresh fish from the boats on the shingle beach; explore the little shops and galleries on the Georgian high street; or set sail yourself from the nearby Alde estuary.
