Queens Drive – a prestigious new development in Woodbridge
Built by award-winning developers Rose, Queens Drive is a collection of 32 new and converted homes nestled in the former grounds of Woodbridge School. An elegant development with properties ranging from one-bedroom apartments to four-bedroom houses, each home has been designed and finished to an impeccable standard.
Historic Queens House, built in 1914, will form three beautifully converted homes whilst the remaining properties will be newly built. Set in 2.32 acres, the design and layout reflect all that is great about traditional design and detailing with relatively low housing density and plenty of green spaces to enjoy.

The interiors however, are far from traditional, with fibre optic broadband, combined terrestrial, Sky and DAB technology as standard, data and USB charging points and CAT 6 cabling. ‘Fabric First’ construction ensures homes are designed to the latest regulations and highly insulated which results in excellent energy performance ratings and minimal heat loss.
As well as underfloor heating to the ground floors, each newly built property will have a stylish, professionally designed and fitted kitchen with an extensive range of finishes and styles available.
