Wellesley House

From the moment you step onto the recently re-instated geometric pathway, it is immediately clear this home has undergone a seriously extensive makeover, with irrigated landscaping framing the fresh pointing and crisp brickwork.
From the elegant entrance hall, an unbroken sightline leads you right to the rear of the garden, but there’s so much to explore before you get there.
The grand sitting room is gloriously full of natural light from the tall twin aspect windows which bounces off the elegant fireplace yet it is the boldness of the contrasting colour scheme overhead which really steals the show in this room, highlighting the crisp white backdrop which is a continued theme around this home. A real pop of fun and designed with varying zones in mind, the family room is a welcome burst of frivolity. Alike to the sitting room, aged wooden boards underfoot add a depth of character in this room which in contrast to the vivid turquoise panelling is an interiors enthusiasts dream.

In contrast, the open plan kitchen living space is entirely grown up, cohesive and inviting the Crittle-stye doors merge inside and out and brings in those glorious views over the common which lays beyond the remote-controlled fencing, another genius feature to this home proving the owners have really thought of everything during this renovation. Kitted out with stylish navy cabinetry from Vale Designs and sleek white Quartz work surfaces, the brushed gold hard wear makes a real stylish statement, especially next to the reeded glass which we particularly adore. A range of integral appliances can be found from the bank of ovens, over-sized refrigerator and dishwasher to the most important of all, double sized wine fridge, essential for those long summer evening enjoyed in the jacuzzi.

As beautiful as it all is, functionality was clearly at the forefront of the design specification, from underfloor heating to the convenience of the plush ground floor shower room next to the side entrance, ideal for days straight from the beach and the spacious laundry room being just across the hallway, it’s just so practical yet audacious in attitude.

The crisp white décor continues upstairs, with a bold monochrome palette jumping from the woodwork adding depth of character to the freshness of the vast tall spaces, where every view is so inviting.
The Principal suite will command your attention first, where bespoke shutters open up to distant panoramic views over the coastline and local harbour beyond. Another statement room with commanding décor and tall ceilings with essential en-suite shower room and built-in storage to lead a clutter free life, much akin to the rest of the house, plenty of storage to tuck everything away.
Now onto a different mood with elegant green hues, bedroom two also makes quite the statement with a striking curved en-suite, another architectural triumph.
Further down the landing, the palatial family bath and shower suite rests next to the last remaining bedroom on this floor, offering equally mesmerising views over the common to the rear and church tower.
Rising to the last and final floor, two more double bedrooms can be found up here in addition to another loo, a great space for children seeking a little independence with the added bonus of far-reaching views over to Southwold Lighthouse, an iconic local landmark.

Outside and some important bits...

Landscaped with infant box hedgerow and full irrigation system, the handsome frontage of this impeccable home makes a statement from the word go. Newly laid geometrical tiling leads you right to the front door and completely sets this home apart from the rest.
Allowing a natural indoor-outdoor flow, the Crittle style doors from the kitchen completely bi-fold open to the enclosed rear garden which has been planted with a stylish range of Tree Ferns and grasses for an all year round green outlook whilst the Cherry Blossom tree and neighbouring Magnolia offers a welcome pop of Pink.
The remote control rear fencing is a real slice of genius, closed off gives the perfect degree of privacy when needed and reclusiveness for the hot-tub, whilst opened up brings the common into your garden, ideal for those with energetic children where your garden is immediately extended. The garage, which is access via the lane to the rear comfortably fits one large vehicle via the remote controlled door.
