A spacious and characterful property, beautifully finished and set in the historic Chillesford Lodge Estate, located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Whitlock, named after the grain conveyor belts that used to sit in this building, is a spacious barn conversion, skilfully blending the convenience of modern living with the charm of a character property set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
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 including high specification bathrooms and under floor heating whilst maintaining a wealth of characterful features including exposed beams, vaulted ceilings with many original windows, retained where possible with the addition of heritage double glazing. The sound proofing and insulation within the property 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 and protects the tranquillity of the wider environment.
Whitlock has its own private garden as well as direct access to a large communal garden with an 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. The estate also offer access to a large indoor swimming pool + leisure complex currently under construction.
The estate sits in the heart of the Suffolk Heritage Coast on the east bank of Butley Creek accessed at the end of a private tree lined drive.
The properties are subject to certain covenants. For more information please ask.
A maintenance fee of £1000 per year, is payable for upkeep of communal areas.
