The architect-owners' influence is evident everywhere in this stunning residence as featured in Homes By The Sea on Channel 4. Set just back from the sands, it's full of light, intimate detailing and flashes of design brilliance, with an open plan layout and sophisticated finishing touches which ooze with elegance.

Bedrooms and bathrooms
A large, lofty bedroom fills most of the first floor and is flooded with light thanks to skylights and large windows - enjoy magnificent sunsets from your rear bay window seat, or watch the waves from the adjoining beach-facing balcony. Downstairs, a second bedroom also boasts a large bay with window seats, a king size bed and the benefit of the morning sun streaming through the venetian blinds. Both the upstairs en-suite and the ground floor bathroom are stylish in white and have refreshing power-showers - perfect after a day in the sun.

Cooking and dining
Ultra-cool white floors and steely grey kitchen appliances add an urban sophistication to the opulent, open plan living, dining and kitchen areas, while freshly-coloured soft furnishings and original artwork add to the property's style credentials. Fold back the glass doors to bring the outside in and enjoy food or a drink al fresco on the large deck that overlooks the garden.

Boasting superb views across the Common to the Edwardian townhouses that epitomise Southwold, The Perch is within walking distance, too, of the bustling Blackshore harbour. But the true beauty of this holiday hideaway is its proximity to the beach - take just a few steps across the dunes for an energising dip, or enjoy the sounds of the seashore from your first-floor balcony. To the rear of the property, steps lead down from a decked area to a seaside-style garden with expansive marsh vistas.

Awarded for outstanding construction and workmanship, this is a holiday home where all your whims are catered for. Wi-Fi, Smart TV, open flame gas fire and an extensively-equipped kitchen provide the ultimate in entertainment and easy living, and free parking is available close by. Please be aware there are original artworks within the property therefore care should be taken at all times.

A security deposit of £350 is required four weeks prior to your holiday. 

Please Note:  Regrettably, adults only at this property due to the different exterior levels and marshland.
