Suffolk is becoming increasingly popular as the place to be for ‘life after London’. Properties in coastal towns and villages close to the Suffolk – Norfolk border in particular arouse great interest, as they not only offer potential residents the opportunity to be close to the sea, but also provide easy access to the vast expanse of ‘The Broads’. Here are two luxury properties for sale in Suffolk, from estate agents in Lowestoft, Gage.
Property One, Corton
Located within the highly sought after, tranquil coastal village of Corton between Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, this property consists of an impressive looking detached cottage.
Exterior – Clad in white with black beams and surrounded by a delightful picket fence, the cottage is set within well maintained front and rear gardens. Predominantly laid out as lawns, both front and rear gardens feature well stocked borders, and there is a pond in the front, as well as a driveway leading up to a double garage. The rear garden contains timber and potting sheds, as well as a timber greenhouse.
Interior – Inside, the cottage feels more like a mansion than a cottage. The ground floor is home to an entrance hall, boiler/ cloakroom and a study; dining room, snug (second sitting room) and kitchen/ breakfast room; a lounge and a shower room/ sauna. On the first landing, there are three good-sized bedrooms and a bath/ shower room. Landing two is home to three larger bedrooms. Featuring radiators and/ or fireplaces in all rooms, the cottage has double glazing throughout; built-in cupboards on the landings and more.
Altogether charming and certainly well appointed, the cottage, an EPC Rating E, Council Tax Band D property, is priced at a surprisingly low £325,000. You can view the property’s full details HERE.
Property Two, Family Home with Holiday Let
Also located between Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth, this two-part property consists of a spacious detached, modernised four-bedroom family home and a recently finished, though fully operational, luxurious five-bedroom holiday let rated by the Tourist Board as a 5-star Gold Award property.
The holiday let is approximately 4000 sq ft, offers five en-suite guestrooms and features an indoor pool, hot tub, changing rooms and a games/function room with confirmed 2014/15 bookings.
Set within around an acre of mature, secluded landscaped gardens, the property boasts magnificent views over the surrounding open farmland and is reported to have made a net profit of approximately £61,000 in 2013. The combined price for these two properties is £1,000,000, with a price for fixtures and fittings to be agreed upon. If of interest, you can see the properties HERE.
Both properties are within easy driving distance of the city of Norwich and, of course, offer easy access to the facilities/ amenities offered in Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft. The market towns of Halesworth, Bungay and Beccles, as well as Southwold and Oulton Broad, which offers excellent sailing facilities, are equally close by.
