A prime location, lavished-with-love interiors and picture-perfect private grounds... Grade II listed South Green House has it all. This glorious Georgian home, so close to the beach and town centre, is an oasis of calm inside, with period detailing sitting comfortably alongside contemporary flashes of drool-inducing design brilliance. Whether you're planning a big group getaway, a special occasion celebration or, simply, a seaside break with family and friends, this elegant residence will be the perfect setting. Prepare to be impressed by the roll-call of high-end equipment and fittings, expect to be inspired by the artist-owner's mastery of mixing fabrics, furniture and one-off shop finds - you can enjoy your own private view of her paintings here, but pop along to her High Street gallery to see more! - and, above all, kick back and relax...
Bedrooms and bathrooms
A double-bedded room on the ground floor plus five others upstairs offer a splendid choice of sleeping locations - each room boasts Hypnos beds, anti-allergy goose down duvets and pillows, 500-thread Egyptian cotton linen and hand-made thermal blackout blinds. To one side of the central staircase, overlooking South Green and with double-glazed sash windows for added quiet, there's a beautiful king-sized room with a period fireplace. A family suite comprising a double-bedded room plus another with bunk beds, all with gorgeous fabrics and plenty of space to unpack and spread out and has its own en-suite family bathroom. A further family room off the large landing has a king-size bed, a full-size day bed with a trundle bed beneath it, and an en-suite shower room, whilst a fifth upstairs room is twin-bedded room, very pretty in pink and overlooks South Green also. A family bathroom on this floor plus a ground floor shower-room / cloakroom - complete with chandelier! - provides a full complement of conveniences; all the showers are from the high-spec Aqualisa range.
Cooking and dining
Sophisticated and superbly detailed, the kitchen here is a favourite spot for get-togethers. There's a large Range oven with five-ring gas hob, American-style fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, dining table and breakfast bar... plus a 48-bottle dual-temperature wine fridge for those who take their tipples seriously. Just across the hallway, a huge dining room seats up to 14 in colourful comfort, whilst for a quiet cuppa you could choose a seat in the first floor Belvedere, which has commanding views of the coastline to Walberswick and leads onto a private balcony.
A pretty front garden enjoys views across South Green and Gun Hill, whilst to the rear of the residence doors from the dining room open onto a spacious decked patio which offers oodles of privacy. A small pond here - grated for safety - is a water-station haven for wildlife, and beyond this the garden continues further with lawned areas, lots of tranquil seating areas and, finally, a huge courtyard featuring a banquet-sized dining table and chairs, gas barbecue and, for those with a competitive streak, a summerhouse with table football and a darts board.
Large screen televisions, DVD players, a games console, Wi-Fi, travel cot, highchair, Apple computer and home safe are testament to the owner's commitment to making South Green House the ultimate holiday home -a personal welcome plus a splendid hamper of food and drinks get every stay off to a good start. A triple-length garage to the rear of the garden provides a much-coveted parking place, and there's a washing machine plus tumble dryer in the spacious utility room. Up to two well-behaved pets are welcome too!
