Stylish seaside holiday home within a few minutes' walk of the beach...
Located in the delightful seaside village of Walberswick on the Suffolk Heritage Coast, Ferrins is a spacious holiday cottage tucked away in a quiet corner of the village. The cottage has recently been redecorated and is a wonderful example of fresh, contemporary mid-century modern design.
With five bedrooms, Ferrins is ideal for an extended family or two families to enjoy a traditional beach holiday or weekend away. The ground floor offers spacious and well-designed living accommodation as well as a conservatory opening on to a lovely terrace. There are three bedrooms on the ground floor (one with an en-suite shower room) and a separate shower room. The first floor features a beautiful family suite with two bedrooms and a spacious ensuite bathroom.
The cottage also benefits from three garden areas, plus parking for up to three cars and a garage which has been adapted to provide a games room. The garden to the rear of the cottage is a particular feature of the house and offers a large space for all of the family to enjoy. The area outside the conservatory and kitchen has a patio with table and chairs leading onto a grassed area enclosed with established flower borders. A beech hedge divides the garden in two and through the gate you will find a large grassed area perfect for children to play. There is also a barbeque built into a brick surround.
There is a games area housed in the garage with a high quality (Kettler) folding table tennis table, a small air hockey table and a dart board. We do request that guests use these facilities with care and consideration for the neighbours (preferably with the door closed). Shop: 200 yards. Pub: 600 yards.
