“It is a haven of tranquility and now we must go back into the real world until we can come back again.”
This chic two bedroom period cottage is a stylish retreat for couples or a family who would appreciate a central seaside location in Aldeburgh combined with an inspiring interior.
Sandpiper Cottage is one of our very own properties and has been through an exacting period renovation – fire places have been uncovered, beautiful panelled walls rediscovered, the walls painted in natural lime-washed paints, sash windows restored, and all finished off with the best of contemporary furniture, art and design!
Adorning the walls are fun works of art made especially for the house from driftwood by local artist Paul Crisp, and the house comes with wifi-access.
On the ground floor is a living room with a powerful wood-burning stove, a large kitchen with large patio doors leading outside to a small decked area with a table and chairs, a dining room and and outside utility room. Upstairs there are two bedrooms (1 king, 1 twin), each with it’s own bath or shower room. The ceilings are high in all of the rooms.
Dining room: The panelled front door leads into the dining room with an original open fire (not in use), traditionally oiled floor boards, original wall panelling, a smoky black glass dining table with seating for four people and a glass side table with candles on it for atmospheric dining.
Living room: A door from the dining room leads into a stylish living room with charcoal grey sofa and armchair, dark glass coffee tables, white painted floor boards, a flat screen TV, DVD player and Ipod docker and wifi access. The focal point is a wood burning stove, ideal for winter breaks spent reading or watching DVDs in front of this lovely fire.
Kitchen: The living room leads to a large kitchen with large glass patio doors leading out to a small decked patio. The fitted kitchen was handmade by local joiners and painted in Farrow and Ball paint to compliment the terracotta floor tiles. There’s a large range-style cooker with a 5 ring gas hob and electric oven, a dishwasher, fridge, microwave and extractor fan. A washing machine can be found in the utility room accessed over the small decked patio.
Stairs with a hand rail lead up to a small landing with access to:
Bedroom 1: A stylish room dressed in off-white and deep red colours for a restful sleep. There’s a king-size handmade oak bed made by a local craftsman, a silk ‘Romo’ roman blind, original pine floorboards and open fire (not in use), bedside tables, a chest of drawers and a built-in wardrobe.
Ensuite shower room: A large shower with white and grey-blue tiles and white painted floor boards, w.c. and hand basin.
Bedroom 2: A twin bedroom in grey-blue and off-white colours with original floorboards and natural coir rug, an open fire (not in use), bedside table, and a built-in wardrobe.
Bathroom: This room has a deep free-standing Victoria and Albert claw-foot bath, w.c. and hand basin, original floorboards and lovely painted wall panelling.
Outside: The patio doors in the kitchen lead out to a small enclosed patio, nestled in the gap between neighbouring cottages, with a small table and chairs to seat two people. (The next door neighbour has a right of access over the patio although this is rarely used.) There’s a utility room out here which houses the gas central heating boiler and a washing machine. On-road parking usually available in nearby side streets.
