A stunning new development of family homes in the highly desirable Christchurch Park area of Ipswich is launching on 19th July 2008. New family houses in this area are rare, due to the limited supply of developable land, therefore Hopkins Homes, East Anglia’s largest independent housebuilder, is anticipating strong demand for properties at Albany Place, located on The Albany, just minutes from Christchurch Park. James Hopkins, Executive Chairman, Hopkins Homes, comments: “The area surrounding Christchurch Park has long been one of Ipswich’s most desirable residential neighbourhoods and there continues to be high levels of demand for family homes here. There is no denying that the current property market is tough, but as new family homes in this popular area are so rare, I am confident that these high quality well located properties at Albany Place will still sell quickly.” Externally, the design of the properties has been influenced by Georgian architecture, in-keeping with the large villas and townhouses that dominate the surrounding area. Traditional yellow render and red brickwork combine with bay and dormer windows and varying roof lines and elevations to create an elegant development. Several of the houses form a traditional crescent facing onto a leafy, green open space. The development is surrounded by mature trees and comprises a selection of two, three, four and five bedroom houses set along quiet cul-de-sacs. Every property benefits from off-street parking and a private garden. Internally, the cleverly designed properties have various different layouts, some traditional and some more open plan, providing something to suit all different lifestyles. The chic interiors are finished by craftsmen to the high standards which are synonymous with Hopkins Homes. Fully fitted kitchens include an oven, hob and extractor fan and purchasers can choose from a range of stylish kitchen units, wall tiles, floor tiles and worktops*. Bathrooms are fitted with stylish white sanitaryware with chrome fixtures and fittings. The Suffolk County town of Ipswich has a rich history and is one of the country’s oldest towns. Ipswich offers a variety of cultural activities involving its history as well as the modern facilities this cosmopolitan town is now known for.
