Sunset or sunrise, take your pick of the views - out to sea, or over the marshes. This is a place for contemplation, for peace. Live as if you’re in the pages of an interiors magazine. Heaven on earth.
Stylistic touches subtly woo you as you walk around this extraordinary, newly built holiday cottage. Designed and built by the owners, an architect and his wife in 2012, you’ll know you’re in a truly unique location the moment you arrive. The Perch has been awarded an LABC Building Excellence Award for outstanding construction and workmanship and is featured in Homes By The Sea on Channel 4.
The Perch is the perfect name for this wonderful place, with its staggering views stretching out in every direction. To the front, you’ll gaze over the dunes, venture up to the first floor balcony for panoramic views of the sea. And to the rear you’ll enjoy stunning vistas across the marshes, the town, the River Blyth and Walberswick. Every angle of this house has been thought through.
Your gorgeous kitchen oozes cool calm with its stunning worktop and grey cupboards, given a zing of colour with carefully placed crockery and accessories. Enjoy the splendid view of the marshes from the spacious sitting room with its squishy sofas and carefully placed decor. Light the award-winning open flame gas fire on a cool evening. When the weather is clear and bright, push back the huge glazed doors which span the entire width of the sitting room and set out to the large raised deck. Dining al fresco here in summer or winter is pure bliss.
The garden is a gorgeous floral and gravel courtyard. A perfect spot to enjoying a glass of something cold and revive your senses.
Southwold is a simply perfect location for a holiday, with a fabulous array of independent shops, a greengrocers, deli, restaurants and pubs. The gorgeous beach is also complemented by Southwold Denes - a must for walkers and nature lovers. The area is also renowned for its surfing, windsurfing and fishing.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Enjoy the morning sunshine from your king size bed or window seat in the master, or take in the magnificent sunsets from the loft bedroom. Indulge in the power showers and the en suite dressing room.
Due to the nature of the property and original art works the owners do not consider the property suitable for children under 12 years old.
