Southwold: Seven new beach huts priced at up to �50,000 go on sale

THEY are the candy-coloured huts that can carry an eye-watering price tag.

But holidaymakers will be buoyed by the news that brand-new beach huts are now on sale in Southwold.

Seven wooden chalets, and the lease of their plots, are up for grabs north of the pier, while five huts between South Green and Gun Hill are awaiting planning confirmation.

They are being sold by NPS property consultants on behalf of Waveney District Council, which sought planning permission for 17 new beach huts across North Parade, Ferry Road, and South Green in March.

People are invited to make offers for the huts in line with other prices in the area – with some fetching �20,000 north of the pier and �50,000 south of the pier.

Tony Rudd, valuer for the NPS group, said: “The proposal at the moment will be a hut and lease of a site for 25 years-plus.

“The huts will be done to a specification provided by the council and will reflect other huts in the vicinity.

Southwold is a popular location for traditional seaside holidays, which is why the huts remain so popular.”

Such has been the demand for beach huts in Southwold that some have sold for up to �100,000 at Gun Hill, making them more expensive than a small family home in some parts of the country.
