So we were in Southwold and wanted to get some shopping so parking behind the Co-op store in its very small car park. Noticed one of the very small cottages in the row on one side of the very narrow road was for sale.

Note there is no mention of a parking space let alone a garage. Nor the fact that the "houses" opposite are part of the Admams brewery complex. But it is the "right side of the church" and right in the heart of the town. Parking will always mean a fair old walk and heaven help you if you stop the car to unload your luggage as you will block the road to all other traffic.
Nor is there a photo of the stairs, I would imagine very twisty and extremely steep.
And that courtyard garden is very tiny no matter what the picture says.
Not to worry too much about the car parking, you will only be using it for holidays and to let to other holiday makers. Oh and you will be able to off set the cost of the mortgage etc against your taxes. Or maybe it will become yet another of the "buy to leave empty and let it grow in value" properties that are blighting Southwold even more than the buy to let for holidaymakers homes. The way Southwold is going nobody will actually live in the town on a permanent basis eventually. The days when people from the home counties sold up and retired to the town with a hefty price reduction on the new home compared to the past are but a memory.
Meanwhile youngsters in the town and surrounding villages are being completely priced out of the area generations of their family have lived in due to the "Southwold effect". And many young and not so young people in North East Suffolk are struggling to find a home they can afford to rent or buy.
Sad isn't it?
