Designed by regional housebuilder Hopkins and Moore, 42 two, three and four-bedroom properties in Somersham, near Ipswich, are now on the market with Savills.

Prices start from £270,000 and the first houses should be ready to move into this summer.

Property agent Max Turner, from Savills in Ipswich, said the properties at Lark Grove were already generating plenty of interest among potential buyers, with several homes already under offer.

“Lifestyle relocation remains a big theme of the market and people’s desire for more space and easy access to the countryside continues to drive demand,” he said. “Even with the stamp duty holiday ending there is little sign of the pace slowing.

“Lark Grove ticks all of the boxes buyers are currently looking for. Elegant and unashamedly traditional on the outside, contemporary and spacious inside, the properties have been carefully and stylishly designed to offer flexible accommodation that exceeds expectations.”

A mix of bungalows, terraced, semi-detached and detached properties, the homes are being built to the most exacting of standards and will be finished to a specification of the highest quality.

Kitchens come with a Neff oven, hob and hood fitted as standard – with a Rangemaster range cooker to selected plots, while contemporary style bathrooms and en suites add a touch of luxury.

Each property also has superfast fibre broadband, a spacious rear garden and timber double glazed windows to ensure energy costs are kept to a minimum.

Max continued: “The homes at Lark Grove will meet the evolving demands of modern lifestyles, making them ideal for couples, families, first-time buyers and downsizers, with the added benefit of living in a thriving village community with its own primary school, pub, village store and playing fields.

“You’re also just a short distance from Ipswich and its road and rail links into the likes of Norwich, Colchester and London and when you want to venture further afield the breath-taking Suffolk countryside and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are within easy reach, offering endless enjoyment and activities. It’s the perfect place to call home.”
