Description

Intro
Fairfield House East is a well proportioned and thought out property set over four floors, with a self-contained indoor heated swimming pool (available May - September) within the large grounds. Four luxury bedrooms and three modern bathrooms including one with a sauna are superb features, but the additional appeal of this property is the flexible living space; a large open plan kitchen and dining room, formal sitting room and children's TV / playroom and the lower ground floor TV room provide enough space for all. Whether you are planning a large family holiday or entertaining with other couples this property has everything you could require.

Located just a short walk to the Railway station at Saxmundham this property can be accessed easily on foot for those without a car and enjoys parking for up to four cars - perfect for larger groups. It is set away from the High Street in secluded gardens but is also just a few minutes' walk from the independent shops and the local Waitrose food store.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Fairfield House East enjoys four large bedrooms - a master bedroom with super king size bed and a second double bedroom with king size bed located on a split level first floor. On the second floor you will find one room with two 3ft single beds that can be made into a super king size bed (please specify your preference at the time of booking) and a twin bedded room. Each room has been thoughtfully designed with contemporary colour schemes, unique pieces chosen to suit the space and to anchor it with a sense of place. Each bedroom enjoys high thread-count luxury linen and heavyweight premium cotton towels. The property has utilised local finds throughout.

The family bathroom located on the first floor has traditional style sanitaryware and a hand-held shower. The first floor shower room is presented in a contemporary style with powerful electric shower. The shower room located on the lower ground floor has underfloor heating and is also home to a small wooden sauna. The pool house which is in a separate building from the main house also enjoys a separate WC and shower room at ground floor level as well as a changing area and space for hanging clothes and towels.

Cooking and Dining
The kitchen at Fairfield House East is a traditional luxury oak framed cream kitchen with a huge amount of thought as to practicalities. The appliances include a Neff built-in oven, Neff built-in combination oven / microwave, two Neff plate warmers, touchscreen Neff hob, built-in Bosch dishwasher, Nespresso machine as well as a washing machine and tumble dryer located in separate rooms. The wooden topped island acts as both an additional worktop space and indeed a perfect surface for a large glass of wine whilst chatting with friends. A signature touch is the Alessi juicer and Nespresso coffee machine, consistent with the thought and style of this property.

The room continues to a large bespoke handmade in Suffolk dining table using reclaimed timber with seating for eight guests where you can sit and enjoy the views through the French windows out to the lawns.  The room also hosts a pair of tub style chairs for after supper relaxation and a contemporary built-in log-effect gas fire. The formal sitting room has been recently decorated to a very high standard and enjoys a cosy coal-effect gas fire perfect for added warmth when the weather is chilly. This room also boasts a large HD TV with Netflix, DVD and a modular sofa system and seating for eight adults. Past the formal sitting room is a small children's playroom with a wide range of books and games as well as a sofa and flat screen television. Also on the ground floor is a large entrance hall for storing coats, boots and other walking equipment. On the lower ground floor is a cosy TV room set within the old cellar. In here all the technology includes Amazon TV, DVD player with surround sound and access to Netflix. The property also boasts a water softener and wine cellar.

Outside
A long gravel drive takes you to wrought iron gates with the grand property situated in front of you. Fairfield House sits in a large lawned area with mature trees and planted borders. The property enjoys a patio area with teak chairs and table for up to eight guests which separates the house from the indoor swimming pool building. The garden contains superb children's play equipment including two swings, mini climbing wall and slide all situated on deep play bark. Located next to this area is a patio area with bench seating ideal for parents supervising children during playtime. There is private parking for up to four cars.

Practicalities
The property boasts three large flat screen TVs, Sonos speakers, DVD player and Netflix as well as an Amazon TV in the playroom, BT TV in the lower ground floor room, BT Infinity Wi-Fi and all the best conveniences of a modern holiday property. Fairfield House is in a fantastic location to explore the whole of the Suffolk coastline, convenient for the railway station at Saxmundham and the A12 and only twenty five minutes' drive to the beautiful sandy beaches of Southwold and ten minutes to the sophisticated coastal town of Aldeburgh.  One well-behaved pet is welcome to join you on your holiday!

Swimming Pool
The Swimming pool is available to use from 1st May - 30th September annually. Due to re-chlorination, the pool is unavailable from Thursday evening at 18:00 - Saturday morning at 08:00.

Security Deposit

Super house.Mrs Daphne Carter - 14th August 2017
An excellent holiday property, the needs of children being particularly well provided for. The pool and the trampoline were certainly appreciated.Mrs Lynda Gilchrist - 5th June 2017
We had a fantastic holiday the location was great as a base for visiting different places the house was very well equipped with everything you could need never stayed at a self catering accommodation with so much down to children's toys, baby monitors, brilliant . The welcoming bottles of wine and snacks was a lovely personal touch .The indoor swimming pool was great and it was nice that it was private. Great holiday enjoyed by all the family. Mrs D Houchen - 13th May 2017
My family and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend stay at FHE. It is a lovely property and in an ideal location to explore the surrounding areas of Southwold and Dunwich. Would love to return!Dr A Adams - 2nd July 2016
The accommodation and location are lovely for a family break. There were additional extras which we did not expect.Mr Jeffrey Goodwin - 6th June 2016
We chose Fairfield House East for a bank holiday weekend family celebration of my wife's significant birthday. We were three generations with six adults and two children. I doubt we could have chosen better anywhere - everything was perfect from start to finish. Definitely a property and service to recommend. Very well done!!Mr Neil Blythe - 8th May 2016
Lovely house. Very clean and decorated to a high standard.Mrs J Hubbard - 13th April 2016
