This gloriously grand home encapsulates all that’s special about Southwold itself – it’s in an enviable position, combines old-style charm with contemporary covetables, and puts the emphasis on relaxation and laid-back living. Close to the beach, Common and town centre, Hill House is generously proportioned, bursting with period and boasts statement-making features, stunning décor and spectacular views… to stay here is to experience luxury of the very highest level.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Five bedrooms, five bathrooms and two additional cloakrooms deliver convenience for all, even when the full complement of eleven guests is in residence. The first of those cloakrooms is on the ground floor, as is a spacious shower room that’s ideally located close to a second entrance into the property – perfect for washing the sand off after a day at the beach. Another shower room is on the first floor, where the landing features book-filled shelving and leads on to three drool-inducing bedrooms. Two of these boast super-king beds and over-sized windows looking out towards South Green, Gun Hill and the sea beyond, and each has its own en suite bathroom complete with roll top bath… there’s even an additional shower cubicle and two basins in one of these, so something for everyone! A third bedroom on this floor offers a slumber-inducing king-size bed and a Juliette-style window with views over the freshly-landscaped garden. Furthering the choice of sleeping locations, a shallow staircase leads to the second floor – do pause a while to savour the views from the window halfway up! – where you’ll find a sea-facing bedroom with breathtaking views and a super-king bed, and another room where there are three single beds and more superb seascapes courtesy of its Juliette-style window. The sense of grandeur flows through this uppermost floor: its bathroom features a large roll top bath, separate shower cubicle and twin basins, and there’s a cloakroom at this level too.
Cooking and dining
The kitchen and dining room here could have come straight from the pages of a glossy magazine – combining bespoke built-in cabinets, a contemporary colour palette and an oh-so-cool open plan layout, it’s sure to be the setting for many happy holiday moments. There’s a six-ring gas hob, double oven, Fisher Paykel fridge-freezer, not one but two Bosch dishwashers and an island unit with sink and breakfast bar incorporated. Large glass panels and full-height glazed doors capture all the light of the west-facing garden beyond the beautiful dining table, its complementary bench seating and chairs – the attention to detail here really is exquisite.
A seaside-cool garden leads from the grand front door towards South Green and Gun Hill, whilst to the rear of the residence, doors from the dining area and snug open onto a west-facing rear garden with access to the lesser-known space that is Skillmans Hill. A large patio offers oodles of privacy and is perfectly positioned for watching the sun go down while, beyond, there’s a lawn plus a second paved area complete with deck chairs – sit back and enjoy the sea breeze!
Comfortable furnishings and the grey and green tones of the grand sitting room set the scene for convivial evenings of conversation and laughter, while there’s more fun to be had in the second, snug sitting room where guests can chill out in front of the large wall-mounted TV, choose from the selection of games, or wander out into the garden. Mindful of the big-group credentials of this gorgeous holiday home, the owners have equipped the ground floor utility room with two Bosch washing machines and a tumble dryer, and of course there’s free WiFi and gas central heating to boost your connectivity and comfort. A highchair will make mealtimes with a baby more manageable, and – so important in this prime location – there’s private parking for two cars. Park, unpack and immerse yourself in luxury!
