A unique new build home in Ipswich
Braid House will be a substantial property set in two acres of mature grounds next to Ipswich Golf Club. The marketing details describe it as ‘unique’ and it is easy to see why. With both a tennis court and swimming pool, it will be an lovely detached family home that Hills assure prospective buyers they will build with ‘innovative design and an obsessive commitment to quality’.
The property will have five bedrooms and a host of generous living spaces and before construction starts there is also a window of opportunity for the buyer to determine a bespoke finish. The developers can work alongside a buyer’s own stylist or use their own to create inspired interior schemes such as a contemporary New York Loft to an inviting Ward Room or Gentlemen’s Club feel.
Braid House is located directly south of Ipswich Golf Club on the eastern corner of Purdis Farm Lane and Purdis Avenue. Accessed from Bucklesham Road, this is a private residential area with individual housing formally arranged within a landscaped setting. It is handy for Ipswich station – just 4 miles away – and its commuter link to London Liverpool Street, and the historic market town of Woodbridge – about 8 miles away – with its independent shops and boutiques, riverside walks, superb restaurants and historic pubs.
Levington is a village nearby and has an excellent marina on the northern bank of the River Orwell. And for the golf enthusiast, Ipswich Golf Club is within walking distance and there are further sailing opportunities and golf courses at nearby Felixstowe, Waldringfield and Woodbridge.
There are some excellent schools in the area including the independent Orwell Park School, Ipswich School, St Joseph’s College in Ipswich, Woodbridge School and Ipswich High School for Girls at Woolverstone. Farlingaye High School, Northgate High School and Kesgrave High School in the state sector are also within reach and subject to catchment availability.
