Thalassa is a large, contemporary detached property. It occupies a prominent position in a quiet exclusive development of luxury houses in the beautiful Victorian seaside town of Aldeburgh.  It is located within 10 minutes’ walk of all the facilities on the High Street whilst the famous Scallop sculpture by Maggi Hambling on the beach is only a 5-minute stroll away.  With premium quality styling throughout, the property comes with a really spacious living area on the ground floor that flows from kitchen to a large dining area and through double doors to a generously proportioned, comfortable lounge with a woodburning stove. This is a house ideal for get-togethers of families and friends with sociable spaces and quality British handcrafted furniture and designer furnishings. The good size garden is peaceful, private and secure and is perfect for outdoor eating or evening drinks. The themes of sea, space and light are evident throughout this special property. Each bedroom has individual touches and the property contains 4 bathrooms to complement the 4 large bedrooms. Distant sea views are afforded from three upstairs windows and the top bedroom enjoys a Velux balcony that pushes out for star gazing to the sounds of the sea. The house has ‘eco’ credentials with solar heated water, a heat recovery system and high levels of insulation. There are 2 dedicated parking spaces at the far side of the house. Thalassa provides a wonderful, luxurious relaxing holiday home in this enchanting seaside town.

Aldeburgh and the surrounding area have inspired many authors and poets in the past, but the most famous son of the town is Benjamin Britten who founded the Aldeburgh Music Festival which now has worldwide acclaim and is held every year in June at Snape Maltings. Fishermen still pull their colourful boats up on the shingle beach and sell fresh fish from the picturesque huts. The wide, mainly Georgian high street has many attractive buildings with a variety of quality shops, restaurants and art galleries.  The nearby Alde estuary and Thorpeness Meare offer a great variety of water-based activities.

Thalassa (Aldeburgh) was an excellent property with a lovely homely feel about it. Ideal for a family get together in a prime, quiet location, but only a few minutes from the sea and the town. We appreciated the high standard of everything - including cleanliness - and the fact that each bedroom had its own bathroom was a real "selling" point.

Mr Anthony W,

The property was delightful. Very well decorated, maintained and thoughtfully furnished and accessorised. . The position was peaceful but easy to reach the beach. WE would have no hesitation in returning to this property.

Mrs Shirley S,

Lovely, comprehensively equipped house.
