Sea View is an historic detached coastal house with stylishly designed interiors and private landscaped gardens. The house is a short stroll from the beach and pub, in the unspoilt village of Dunwich, at the heart of the conservation area. It is surrounded by some of the country's finest nature reserves and is the ideal location for enjoying country and coastal activities from your doorstep. Southwold and Aldeburgh are both a short drive away.

The space
Sea View is an an early Victorian detached estate cottage with a characteristic local style. This beautiful house, fully renovated in 2012, has been designed using a mid-century/modern Scandi and coastal style. Parking is easy all year round. It is extremely well equipped, with a log burning stove and lots of original features. The private garden with lawned area was professionally designed and landscaped by a leading garden designer, and is equipped with garden furniture and loungers.

The large kitchen (with a dining table) has all the equipment you could need; a real cook's kitchen.

There are two reception rooms: a large dining/living room opens out on to the garden to form an indoor/outdoor space, and has a long dining table which can sit 8 people comfortably. The other reception room is the main living room with 2 sofas and 2 armchairs; it is a great place to lounge and has a TV and a wood burning stove.

There is a free standing bath and shower room with WC downstairs, and an additional shower room with WC upstairs.

The house is equipped with central heating, water softener, internet, Wifi, SONOS speaker, Bose bluetooth speaker, DAB radio, Smart TV, DVD player, fridge/freezer, Nespresso coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer.

The accommodation is comfortable for 6 people, and would ideally suit couples or a family of up to six. There are three bedrooms: one with a king size bed, one with a double bed , and a third bedroom with full sized bunk beds.

Sea View has been the name of the cottage for over 150 years, and is still the postal address. In the intervening century trees have grown up and now the sea is mainly obscured from view.
