House in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, England, UK - Cottage With Garden Located In The Centre Of Beatiful Aldeburgh
This historic sixteenth century cottage is centrally located on Aldeburgh’s ever-popular High Street, close to the famous shops, restaurants and the beach. "This is one of the oldest buildings in the smart seaside town of Aldeburgh. It's incredible to gaze up at the rafters in the beamy master bedroom and think that somone was living here doing exactly the same when Henry VIII was on the throne" (Bella Sept 2011). On the ground floor there’s a large living room with a wood-burning stove, a dining room, a kitchen and a bathroom. Upstairs you’ll find two bedrooms (a king and a twin). The main bedroom has raised sloping ceiling which makes it unusual and dramatic. At the back there is a raised patio garden which has a bbq, table and chairs and is suitable for outside eating.
About the Owner
About Toby Belsom
Both of us work in financial services, have 2 young kids and live north of London. We advertise 2 properties on Owners Direct in Lake Como and Suffolk. They are both extremely different in many ways (built almost 300 years apart!). We hope you would enjoy staying in either.
Toby Belsom purchased this cottage in 2010
Why Toby Belsom chose Suffolk
We live north of london and wanted some where as a bit of bolt hole for the weekends. We didn't really know Aldeburgh and the suffolk coast before searching for a coastal poperty within a couple of hours drive of home. We both feel really lucky to own this property and feel like we own a bit of history.
What makes this cottage unique
Walks on the beach (whatever the season), great local pub and an exceptional local fish and chip shop. I also like to play the occasional golf round at either thorpeness and aldeburgh. We ar eboth looking forward to getting to know Aldeburgh much better over the coming years.
