Located in the pretty market town of Woodbridge along the banks of the River Deben, stands this outstanding contemporary home. This award-winning house is a magnificent example of modern design, which sits harmoniously within its country landscape.
Having been built just three years ago, buyers will benefit from the installation of the most state of the art technical and energy efficient features. Fingerprint door entry and computerised under floor heating, which adjusts its temperature according to the weather, are just two of the impressive mod cons that are fitted throughout.
Light and airy rooms give this large property a sense of spaciousness and provide spectacular views towards the Deben. Sliding glass walls of the principal rooms open onto the terraces and decked areas to give a versatility of living, which few houses possess. The open plan layout provides a model space for entertaining, with a glass roofed dining room and wine cellar being ideal for dinner parties. A home cinema and games room ensure that a night in will never be dull.
The upstairs consists of a master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite bathroom, a sitting room, shower room, gym and four other bedrooms. If this isn’t enough for you then Broom Heath also possesses a beautiful outdoor pebble-lined swimming pool. Enclosed within it’s own private garden, the pool has an outdoor entertaining and BBQ area, with changing rooms adjacent.
Situated close to the main property stands a self-contained annexe, which houses its own spacious studio and kitchen. Underneath there is a double garage and a car port/boat store. For additional parking there is also a gated driveway, offering owners privacy and security. For those looking for a country get-a-away, without compromising on city lifestyle, then Broom Heath answers all your prayers. Woodbridge has a theatre, cinema, swimming pool, and a multitude of restaurants and cafés, with two excellent schools being located nearby. While Ipswich is just a short trip away, with regular train services to Liverpool Street allowing access into London in just over an hour.
