    About this property

    • The building plot occupies a delightful position overlooking the river Brett, lush meadowland and set a long way back from the main street. The site is situated on the edge of this sought after village at the end of a dead end lane.

      The proposed new dwelling is a contemporary design, which respects local materials but reinterprets these into a modern flowing shape. The scheme is single storey and less than 3m in height. The garage is kept to a minimum size and matches the barn garaging. Low in the landscape with a green roof.

      The approved planning application incorporates eco-living designs throughout the property.

      All the planning documents can be accessed via the Babergh Planning portal ref no. DC/19/01922

      Electricity is located near to the site. Water and drainage will be by means of a buyer installing a treatment plant and bore hole.

    The location is breath-taking with the proposed new build perfectly orientated to take full advantage of the southerly views over the Brett Vale countryside.

    Local information

    • Chelsworth lies in a Conservation Area in the sought after stretch of Suffolk countryside which includes historic villages such as Bildeston, Lavenham, Monks Eleigh and Kersey. Between them these villages offer local schools and better than average day to day shopping facilities. A wide selection of shopping, educational and recreation services can be found in the Suffolk market towns of Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Hadleigh and Sudbury, formerly the home of Thomas Gainsborough and also in Essex at the Roman town of Colchester which is reputed to be the oldest in England. Recreational amenities in the area include sailing and fishing on the estuaries of the rivers Orwell, Deben, Stour and Colne together with the waterways around Mersea Island. Golf can be enjoyed at many nearby courses including Stoke by Nayland, Hintlesham and Ipswich and equestrian facilities at Boyton Hal and Highland Hall. The commuter can take advantage of InterCity trains running from Colchester or Ipswich, journey times taking from 50 or 65 minutes respectively.
