Chillesford Lodge Estate is an architecturally distinctive group of Grade II 19th Century 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.
The properties lie at the end of a private mile long tree lined driveway leading to an idyllic agricultural estate. Set in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on Suffolk's Heritage Coast, the properties benefit from a liberal use of glazing which provides panoramic views over the peaceful surrounding countryside. In the ground floor living rooms this enables a seamless transition between inside and outside space.
The sound proofing and insulation within each of the properties is set to 'hospital consulting room' standard, with floor thickness almost double that of a normal build. The floorboards are engineered oak laid on resistance battens which, along with clever use of built in wardrobes minimises noise disturbance within the properties as well as protecting the tranquillity of the wider environment.
Each home has its own private space as well as access to a large communal garden including a walled kitchen garden which, once restored, will provide the freshest seasonal produce for residents to buy. Planned amenities include access to indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a tennis court and a luxurious mobile picnic hut positioned seasonally to allow residents private enjoyment of the wider estate and stunning surroundings.
The peace and tranquillity of Chillesford Lodge Estate cannot be underestimated. It is a privileged place of rare sanctuary where residents can retreat yet remain close to world class culture and entertainment.
