Chillesford Lodge Estate is an architecturally distinctive group of Grade II 19th Century red brick farm buildings converted to deliver stylish and contemporary open plan living. The individual designs combine modern materials whilst maintaining a wealth of characterful features including exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and many original windows which have been retained where possible with the addition of heritage double glazing.
Whitlock is named after the grain conveyor belts that used to sit in this building. The estate sits in the heart of the Suffolk Heritage Coast near Orford accessed at the end of a private tree lined drive.
The properties all benefit from a liberal use of glazing which provides panoramic views over the peaceful surrounding AONB countryside. Glazed bifold and stable style doors on the ground floor enable a seamless transition between inside and outside space. The sound proofing and insulation within the properties is set to ‘hospital consulting room’ standard with floor thickness almost double that of a normal build. Floorboards are engineered oak laid on resistance battens which, along with clever use of built in wardrobes, minimises noise disturbance within the properties and protects the tranquillity of the wider environment. Each home has its own private space as well as access to a large communal garden with additional leisure amenities including a beautiful new indoor swimming pool complex, all weather tennis court and a luxurious Shepherd’s Hut for picnics in sublimely private places, moved seasonally to appreciate the wealth of diverse habitats actively managed by the estate.
With a limited number of properties, early viewings are recommended.
