The Hive at Southwold

There's a lovely feeling of space at The Hive with a wide entrance hall at the heart giving ample space for storage, with doors opening to the living area, both bedrooms, cloakroom and additional shower room. Light streams into the open plan living area which combines an L shaped kitchen, dining area and seating, with door opening to the patio and Tibbys Green beyond. The master bedroom, with king size bed, also has a double glazed door so you can enjoy your morning coffee outside.

An allocated parking space close to the apartment is a huge advantage in Southwold, particularly as you'll be staying within walking distance of the bustling high street, Adnams Cellar and Kitchen, iconic Southwold Pier and promenade. The entrance is off Simons Path with the apartment overlooking Tibbys Green and the beautiful St Edmunds Church, and a strip of shingle patio with low wall and just enough space for you enjoy a coffee or something stronger!

Ground Floor
Enter through the honeycomb patterned glass door into the spacious hall which runs through the heart of the apartment, a great place for storing beach gear and giving access to the living room, master bedroom, guest bedroom, shower room and cloakroom. There's under floor heating throughout and natural timber flooring with the exception of tiles in the shower rooms. There is a two drawer console table with large circular mirror above as you walk into The Hive and also a wooden seat with storage for shoes under to keep things tidy.

Open Plan Living Space
A lovely light and airy room with big windows overlooking the green. A range of kitchen units with granite work surfaces run in an L shape at one side with a full range of appliances, including a Neff five ring gas hob with Wok burner and oven, integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Enjoy meals at the extendable wooden table and four chairs and two further chairs in the apartment. Relax by the patio door in the sunshine on the comfy two seater couch and there's a funky swivel chair with footstool too.

Utility Room
A great addition with built in Hotpoint washer/dryer, freestanding microwave and storage cupboards.

With washbasin and WC.

This modern en-suite has a tiled shower cubicle, wash basin, WC and natural light.

Guest Bedroom
Sitting at the back of the apartment, this room has standard size twin beds and, again, plenty of space for your belongings with a fitted wardrobe with floor to ceiling mirrored door, hanging and shelf space.

Shower Room
