Mission Hall, sleeps 6+2 in Thorpeness just launched!
The Mission Hall, built in 1900 as a meeting place for the local fishermen, is a wonderfully unique and quirky holiday house situated a stones throw from beach on the outskirts of Thorpeness, about a miile from the coastal town of Aldeburgh. This detached property is ideal for those who enjoy a property with character!
The arched front door opens into a hallway, with a king size bedroom with ensuite shower off to the left and double doors opening to the main accommodation on the right. Doors then lead off to the family shower room, third bedroom with super king bed and the living/dining area. The kitchen and family bathroom open off the living/dining area with the stunning galleried sitting room with sea views, and further king bedroom above.
The Mission Hall has a wooden fence surrounding it with a path around three sides and a gate opening onto a grassed area with ample space to park three cars. There are some shrubs and ornamental grasses, however the property is quite open and has a public footpath along two sides.
This spacious double aspect room is full of character with unique arched windows facing both north and south; wood burning stove for cosy evenings; galleried bedroom and sitting room above with wrought iron balustrades; attractive chandeliers from the sloping and beamed ceiling, and French windows opening onto the deck. The floor is wooden and there are padded fabric shutters on all of the windows.
A lovely spacious and bright room with windows facing south and west; this room has a king size bed as well as a large wooden day bed which is ideal for a couple wanting some privacy; or provides accommodation for two children with the pull out bed underneath the day bed. The room has wooden floors with a large rug and high sloping ceilings. There is a small flat screen TV, DVD player, hanging space, tall boy, cute arm chair with coffee table and a small dressing table with mirror and chair.
Thorpeness is a mile along the beach from Aldeburgh and there is a coastal footpath between the two. Thorpeness is unique, designed and built as a holiday village by the Scottish playwright and barrister Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie a century ago, inspired by the writings of J M Barrie, author of Peter Pan.
There is a challenging golf course and active country club, several places to eat including the Dolphin Inn, The Kitchen and the Meare Tearoom.
