9 Church Walk was the home of Imogen Holst from 1964 until her death 20 years later, designed by H.C. Cadbury-Brown within the grounds of his Aldeburgh home, number 3. It is situated down a quiet residential street within close walking distance of Aldeburgh High Street.
In 2010 the property was given to Britten Pears Arts by the Holst Foundation. We have aimed to maintain the unique spirit of place of the modest single-storey property. Imogen Holst led a frugal life and the décor and furnishings in the property are comfortable but sparse and functional.
- Detached bungalow
- One double bedroom
- Living room
- Bathroom (bath, no shower)
- Music room with upright piano
