THE OPPORTUNITY
This unusual collection of five residential sites offers developers the chance to build-out a cleverly thought-through and sympathetically designed scheme which, once completed, should garner significant interest from both local buyers and those from further afield.

Altogether, the sites include 22 semi-detached dwellings, with just two being classified as Affordable Homes. It includes four bungalows and eighteen two-story homes, with a variety of sizes ranging from 51 square meters to 132 square meters. The entire scheme totals 2,440 square meters.

Three of the sites are found on Woolverstone Main Road (within a Conservation Area), positioned among a variety of substantial period homes and attractive red-brick cottages. The remaining sites (which incorporate the larger of the consented dwellings) are located on a quiet lane (Harkstead Lane) where they benefit from having just a handful of neighbours and superb rural views. All of the sites are found within a kilometre of each other.

Every property in the scheme has been allocated ample garden space and sixteen of the properties will have detached garages.

STYLE AND SPECIFICATION
The scheme was commissioned by our clients using renowned architectural designer, Roger Balmer, who was briefed to emulate the characteristics found in local farmworker’s cottages and listed buildings. At the same time the properties have been designed to meet up-to-date sustainability and energy efficiency standards.

The approved designs are all red-brick buildings with clay peg-tile roofs, with some featuring low eaves, traditionally pitched roofs and attractive brick detailing. Further specifications include powder coated aluminium windows, zinc roofing and capping, and galvanised steel guttering.

Sustainable credentials include electric car charging points, air source heat pumps and heat recovery systems.

ABOUT WOOLVERSTONE
Woolverstone is a popular village on the Shotley Peninsular, which is most notable for its marina on the River Orwell (home to the Royal Harwich Yacht Club) and for being the home of Ipswich High School, one of the area’s top-performing independent schools.

The village is popular with buyers looking for easy access to Ipswich, Manningtree, Colchester and Felixstowe, with the mainline stations at Manningtree and Ipswich providing excellent services into to the City of London.

The county town of Ipswich is located five miles to the north and provides a range of amenities such as high street shopping, entertainment parks, schools (both state and private sector), a university and hospital.  Large supermarket outlets are also located on the south eastern side of Ipswich at Ransomes Europark, or at Copdock Interchange, being south west of town centre. Both are within 7.7 miles of Woolverstone.


POINTS TO NOTE
Full planning permission was granted in September 2023 by Babergh District Council under planning application reference DC/20/03247. Detailed documentation relating to the planning approval is available via the Babergh District Council website.  All enquiries should be directed to Tom Bloomfield or Freya Crossley at Brooks Leney (in association with Bloomfield Grey).

The sites are not for sale separately and our clients will impose a condition stipulating that the existing approved designs must be adhered to.

The planning approval is subject to a Section 106 agreement, a copy of which is available upon request. The salient points of the agreement are to:

·  Construct a bridleway/cycle path, linking Holbrook to Chelmondiston
·  Extend the existing car park adjoining the village hall
·  Create an area of public open space adjacent to the village hall car park; this area will remain under the ownership of our client.
·  Construct two affordable residential dwellings
·  To deliver the development opportunity as a phased development.
·  To make a Habitat Site Mitigation Contribution of £2,681.58

The sites are also subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) - please ask for details.
