Location is a key thing here, perhaps as important as the house. Described as one of Britain’s most attractive coastal towns, it has everything from outdoors activities to shopping and dining to its own music festival, not to mention a few modernist properties.

This is just one of them. Built in the late 1960s by the architects Gordon White & Hood and overlooking the beach at Aldeburgh, it has an entrance porch, inner hall, cloakroom, living room/dining room, fully-fitted kitchen and understairs cupboard on the ground floor.

Upstairs, you’ll find the landing, three bedrooms (the master bedroom with those all-important sea views) and a family bathroom. Outside, there is a lawn to the froth, plus a rear garden with plants surrounding further lawns.

Refurbishment has been carried out by the current owners, who have installed oak floors and new aluminium-framed double-glazed windows. They have also landscaped the rear garden. Fear not though, as all the work has aimed to be in keeping with the design of the house. The images do bear that out.

Fancy it? This ’60s seaside retreat is on the market for £475,000.
