A Perfect Place to Live

Quietly residing on the Suffolk Coast, Chillesford Lodge Estate provides both the tranquility of a stunning rural idyll with easy accessibility to the coastal attractions on offer locally.

Perfect Places to live vary according to Who’s looking. For some it may be an uber chic modern minimalist apartment, for others a flat above MacDonalds next door to a throbbing nightclub, few still might choose a remote croft five hours by ferry to the outer Hebrides.

Figures released recently by Suffolk Coastal District Council made the front page headline in last Monday’s East Anglian Daily Times (21/8/2017) :-

“10,000 more homes for coastal Suffolk….that’s nearly as many houses as there are currently in Felixstowe”

For those who are looking for a peaceful retreat in the heart of the Heritage Coast with no prospect of ribbon development to spoil the views, Chillesford Lodge Estate may just be the only place to live. It would mean living in a private hamlet a short hop from the bustling town of Orford; a well known holiday destination in the heart of the Heritage Coast. It means peace and tranquility day and night but easy access to the delights of town when occasion demands, with Aldeburgh just up the coast for those that need a beach, carnival, cinema………crowds, and never forgetting the sensational programme of international music staged by Aldeburgh Productions at Snape.

Living on a working agricultural estate also brings the benefit of seeing the rhythm of the seasons both in the fields and along the hedgerows, infinite entertainment for all nature lovers and a real potential to glean nature’s larder onto your plate. Elderflower cordial, plum crumble, sloe gin, blackberries galore, all free food for those that want to harvest it.

With a deep rooted commitment to preserving the environment the estate management team have designed homes that not only are cheap to heat and have natural build finishes, they also take full advantage of the beautiful views outside making it perfectly possible to enjoy the richness of the rural setting without leaving your armchair. The minimal use of external lighting also brings the night sky alive with a chance to enjoy spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and mesmerising meteor showers when weather permits.

Suffolk is lucky, it is the second driest county in the country and near the top for having the most sunshine hours, both factors which explain why people regularly holiday here year after year and then choose to retire here. Its also only two hours from central London making it commutable for those that have to divide their time between town and country. Its why there is a high percentage of second home owners, especially at the coastal hotspots, and why the planners have often granted planning with a holiday occupancy condition. Chillesford Lodge Estate homes have no such restriction.

With noise and light pollution at their lowest, coupled with direct access to a substantial national network of bridleways and footpaths, not to mention an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, Chillesford Lodge Estate is a unique development and for some perhaps, a Perfect Place to Live.
