Waveney Road has justifiably become one of the most coveted roads in Beccles. Rich in history and architecture, this superb home is perhaps the finest on the street – it should come as no surprise that it has remained within the same family for decades.
Originally built as a Headmaster’s residence, the timeless grandeur of this home radiates through the vast array of reception rooms, all with notably high ceilings, whilst the natural light spilling through the ornate windows highlights the exquisite period details.
We especially like the grand hallway, which links all the reception rooms to the kitchen, giving the ground floor a pleasing natural flow and highlights the modern versatility each room offers.
Rising to the first floor, the elegant proportions continue throughout the four double bedrooms and family bath suite which all lead from the pleasingly large landing. Careful modern considerations have been added here, including an en-suite shower room to the master suite and the option of both a shower and bathtub within the family bathroom. The natural light continues to bathe each room, pouring through the large windows that are architecturally and charismatically different at every turn. Lastly rising to the second floor, a large expanse of space with one large room filling a majority of this floor, great for teenagers with a degree of separation for some slight independence or potential to create a luxury master suite over the entire floor. A second shower room and sixth room can also be found on this floor, which again really opens up the versatility within the layout.

Arguably, one of the best features to this stunning home is the generous plot to which the house is perfectly placed within. Beautifully landscaped with a wide array of mature shrubs and greenery, the garden is wonderfully private and quite romantic. An iconic feature of the garden has to be the mesmerising Magnolia Tree, which elegantly stands before the bay windows from the grand sitting room offering magnificent views throughout the seasons. A terraced area leads from the kitchen side, complete with ornate pond and more landscaped borders. The detached garage can be found further to one side behind the driveway which allows space for off-road parking.

Franks Thoughts...

There’s no point in hiding it, Frank is a little in love with this home. The timeless grandeur seams perfectly with little pockets of cosiness whilst the light just seems to know what beautiful little scenes to highlight. If you’re looking for the best house on the best street, then this is it.
