Superbly positioned house with views over The Meare.


The village of Thorpeness, which is set around a boating lake known as The Meare, has developed from its Edwardian inception as a fairytale holiday village. Set on the Suffolk Heritage Coast with a shingle beach, the village lies to the north of the well served seaside town of Aldeburgh, and is just a few miles from Leiston where there is an excellent sports centre with a swimming pool. Thorpeness however also boasts its own Country Club, tennis courts, Golf Club, cafes and pub/restaurant. There is a village shop and many more amenities including galleries, a cinema, library and restaurants at nearby Aldeburgh. Saxmundham, approximately eight miles away, has a Wednesday Market, and railway station with direct access to London via Ipswich and Liverpool Street. Attractions in this part of Suffolk include nature reserves at Minsmere and Havergate Island. There are ancient castles at Orford and Framlingham, sailing at Aldeburgh and Woodbridge and of course music at Snape—home to the internationally renowned Aldeburgh Festival.


11 The Haven is a superbly located house in the heart of the village with views over the Meare, a picturesque boating lake. The house is constructed in part from brick and timber with weatherboard elevations under pitched tiled roofs. Internally the house has been thoroughly and sympathetically renovated to a very high standard throughout and is now beautifully presented. The house has great character with a spacious, light and bright sitting / dining room which has been opened up to create a large open plan space with a fitted wood burning stove & windows overlooking the Meare. To the rear of the house the current owners have created a bespoke kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a Plain English kitchen with Carrera marble work tops and a large dual fuel Mercury Range. The kitchen/breakfast room further benefits from bi-fold doors opening to the rear garden. To one side lies a day room / snug which is a perfect cosy room in a quiet corner of the house. The property has both a front and rear garden, lawned at the front overlooking The Meare and paved and landscaped to the rear with a path leading to a rear access to the property. The lane to the rear provides parking but this is not private / not owned by the house.
