About this property

  • 36A Warrington Road is an exceptional contemporary eco house, with light filled and well-proportioned rooms. The house is built to exacting standards in one of the most sought after areas of Ipswich, close to Christchurch Park.

    The house is constructed from highly insulated concrete frame work with part cedar clad elevations and part through-colour render. There is also a maintained sedum roof with solar panels. The eco credentials of the house are exceptional, benefitting from air source heat pump and underfloor heating throughout the house, which is individually zoned on each floor. Internally the spacious accommodation flows remarkably well, with an open plan kitchen/dining room, sitting room and study/bedroom on the ground floor, utility, gym, cinema room, sauna and hot tub room on the lower ground floor and three double bedrooms on the first floor.

    The front door opens into an entrance hall. Beyond is a spacious, double height, open plan kitchen/dining room. The kitchen has Corian work surfaces, Siemens double oven, induction hob, coffee machine and microwave. There is also a built in full height fridge and freezer as well as a Zip boiling and chilled filter tap. Separating the kitchen and sitting room is a back to back elevated Dimplex Optimyst flame effect fire dividing the two. There are full height triple glazed powder coated aluminium bi-fold doors opening out to the gardens, that provide light and bright accommodation. Completing the ground floor is a study/bedroom, which has bespoke built in cabinetry including a clever wall bed.

    The lower ground floor has a spacious gym, a cinema room, a hot tub / sauna and shower room. The first floor is accessed via a curving staircase up to three bedrooms and three bathrooms, the principal bedroom benefits from a dressing room & large en suite shower room. Bedroom two also has a dressing room and en suite shower room.

    Outside
    The house is set back from Warrington Road and is accessed through electric gates, operated via a video gate entry system, down a Himalayan Silver Birch tree lined gravel driveway giving the property a secluded and private position. The south west garden, designed by award winning garden designer Sue Townsend, complements the house and benefits from mature pleached evergreen Japanese tree privets surrounding the garden, and well stocked beds inset around a black limestone and York stone terrace with a seating area, perfect for alfresco dining. There is bespoke lighting throughout the garden, including LED spotlights set into the stone steps, along with uplights, downlights and spots highlighting trees and borders throughout the garden. The garden also has an amazing purpose built outdoor kitchen with fitted pizza oven, barbeque and covered seating area overlooking the garden.
