Puffingbilly is named after the first petrol/paraffin tractor bought by the estate in 1944 and parked under cover in this building. It is still safely stored on the farm and was last used to level a lawn in 2006.
Puffingbilly is entered from the car port into a large and beautifully tiled utility room fitted with separate cloakroom. This leads to a spacious and light filled open plan fully fitted kitchen/ dining room. Large glazed bi-fold doors lead to a private south facing garden enclosed with woven willow fence. The full height glazing continues into the snug/bedroom 3, which sits off the kitchen/dining room.
First floor accommodation comprises of a spacious living room with vaulted ceiling with an allowance for a wood burning stove. South facing glazed French windows and a Juliet balcony provide countryside views. A corridor continues to a bedroom with fitted wardrobes, opposite which is a family shower room. The master bedroom completes the first floor and is fitted with build in wardrobes, a spacious en-suite bathroom and a small timber balcony with space for a table and chairs.

Chillesford Lodge Estate is 2 miles west of Orford, considered one of the most desirable Suffolk Coastal towns. Orford is of great historic importance with its impressive Norman Castle and popular Georgian Market Square; where Pump Street's award winning artisan bakery, Ruth Watson's famous Crown and Castle Hotel, and various leisure amenities, shops and pubs can be found.
The renowned Snape Maltings is nearby, well served with a wide variety of shops, restaurants and regular markets, as well as home of Aldeburgh Music and the Britten Pears Concert Hall which deliver an international programme of events all year round.
The popular seaside town of Aldeburgh is also in convenient reach offering a full programme of cultural events through literary, art and music festivals. Further to this is a thriving cinema with live stream screenings from the National Theatre, a good selection of fine restaurants and the chance to buy locally landed fish. The beautiful riverside town of Woodbridge about 10 miles away provides excellent schooling in both the state and private sectors.

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.
