New energy-efficient homes close to the coast in Suffolk

02 Mar 23

Foresters Glade is a collection of just 13 contemporary new homes in Bawdsey, marketed by our specialist New Homes team in Woodbridge.  Located close to the Deben peninsula, Bawdsey is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on Suffolk’s Heritage Coast.

Built by highly regarded Crocus Homes, who specialise in building new homes in Suffolk and Norfolk, each of the 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes has been expertly designed and built around the local landscape, offering generous space inside and out.

Each property at Foresters Glade is heated via an energy efficient air source heat pump, and built with a fabric-first approach.  High performing double glazed windows are fitted as standard with highly efficient wall, ceiling and floor insulation and provision for EV charging points.  Crocus pride themselves on building future proofed, energy efficient homes, using the latest technology.


Each home comes with a 10 year structural warranty from the market leading warranty provider, NHBC, and features high quality external finishes, such as contemporary anthracite grey windows, with oak framed porches and electrically operated garage doors.  Internally, you will find individually designed kitchens with quartz or granite worktops, oak veneer doors, LVT and carpets installed throughout, together with luxury integrated appliances, and some come with wine coolers too.  Crocus Homes have worked closely with the local community from day one to ensure minimum disruption and peace of mind.  Christina Hack, Assistant Director at Crocus Homes commented:

 “We have worked closely with the local parish council, the Peninsula Villages Community Land Trust (PVCLT) and the local primary school.  I’m immensely proud of Foresters Glade, as not only will it provide high quality, efficient family homes for the open market, it will also provide much needed quality affordable housing which will benefit the local community.”

The village of Bawdsey is in an AONB close to Shingle Street and the River Deben, and benefits from many amenities, including a primary school, village hall, playground and recreation ground with tennis courts.  Bawdsey Quay is a hidden gem, with a café that is open in the summer months, and a foot ferry which runs across the Deben to the delightful hamlet of Felixstowe Ferry.  The highly desirable market town of Woodbridge is just ten miles away and offers a fantastic range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a train station, cinema and swimming pool.

On 25th March, we will be holding a ‘Meet the builder’ event from 10am – 3pm, where you will be able to view a completed property which hasn’t been released yet.  Prices start from £350,000, please call our team on 01394 333346 to register your interest or find out more below:
