Don’t dream it, when you can live it – at Griffin Wharf

17 February 2021

Imagine waking up in your fabulous new build waterside home? You could enjoy coffee and breakfast right there, overlooking the picturesque marina.

Or perhaps a short stroll into the heart of town, a jog or cycle along the river or, if you prefer, a few minutes’ drive to the coast.

Bringing this wonderful lifestyle within reach is housebuilder Persimmon Suffolk, developing a selection of contemporary townhouses in Ipswich.

Griffin Wharf is located next door to the marina, overlooking the River Orwell. This emerging neighbourhood combines outdoor life and city living in a most imaginative and attractive way: there’s all you need for day-to-day living, with a Co-op, Tesco Express, post office, health centre and dental practice on the doorstep. 

An affordable dream

Reflecting on the rich lifestyle to be had, Lucy Woodhall, sales director of Persimmon Homes Suffolk, said: “It’s impossible not to feel excited about a development like Griffin Wharf.

“It offers such an amazing wealth of experiences and attractions: so close to town, by the marina, with the beach a short drive away. To have all this, and more, you would normally expect to pay an awful lot. But here, we’ve delivered a wonderful scheme at truly affordable prices.”

Among the properties becoming available to would-be buyers at Griffin Wharf is the impressive ‘Fulmar’ three-storey house. A three-bedroom family home, the first floor offers a spacious open plan kitchen/living/dining room as well as a study.

There are three good-sized bedrooms on the second floor, with bedroom one including an en-suite. With a large family bathroom, downstairs WC and five storage cupboards, this home is not only very stylish but hugely practical too: it even boasts a carport, WC, utility and handy storage cupboard on the ground floor.

Outstanding amenities

Within a short walk you can browse the Buttermarket shopping centre, with its comprehensive variety of high street stores, together with outstanding catering and leisure amenities such as Prezzo, Super Bowl, Empire Cinema and more.

Modern Ipswich is a thriving town with an enviable array of attractions. The town’s New Wolsey Theatre is a delightful 400-seater venue hosting a diverse and vibrant selection of music and theatre productions.

Nearby Ipswich Golf Club and Suffolk Leisure Park feature a vast range of outdoor activities including skiing, snowboarding, climbing and golf.

In addition, don’t forget how close Griffin Wharf is to the splendours of the Suffolk coast: Within a few minutes you can drive to Felixstowe Beach, a perfect spot for a family day out. From here you can relax on the sands, take in the seaside attractions, including the pier and ornamental gardens, or explore the beautiful Suffolk coastal path – which actually extends a full 50 miles up to the Norfolk Broads.

To top it all off, for residents with children there’s an abundance of quality education nearby.

It’s not too late to grab yourself a piece of this perfect lifestyle. Persimmon’s three-bedroom homes are on sale now priced from £222,000 and are ideal for first-time buyers and professionals.
