Description

Sandy Castle is an award-winning modern house, quietly tucked away in the centre of Southwold. It was designed and built by the same company who constructed Southwold Pier. There is emphasis on light and space throughout the property, with a secluded south-west facing terrace with walk-on glass floor! The property incorporates modern technology to create comfortable and well-appointed accommodation ideal for a couple or small family. Shop: 70 yards Pub: 75 yards.

The following comments are from the jury of the RIBA East 2009 Ingenuity Awards who voted this property the winner of the home award -

"An ingenious and airy house shoehorned into a tiny backland site. The building might have been there for years and has an ageless quality - we could all learn lessons from this sophisticated design and the high quality execution."

Reviews

Sandy Castle is a different holiday let from usual cottage, having a games room is a bonus. The upstairs living area is very light and airy and has an added unusual outside space. We enjoyed it very much.
