Persimmon Homes

Fabulous for first timers and families

26 August 2020

First time buyers and young families have been flocking to snap up new build Persimmon Homes at a popular Suffolk development.

Gipping Mill, in the village of Great Blakenham, has been a huge hit with those looking to take their first step onto the housing ladder, and Persimmon Suffolk’s sales manager Katy Bent-Marshall knows exactly why.

“Anyone looking for a well-designed, modern home, close to both open countryside and all the facilities of a city, really couldn’t do better than Gipping Mill,” she said. We have a selection or properties that are ideal for first time buyers and young families, with good local schools and village shops and, of course, a huge choice of facilities just five miles away in Ipswich for those who enjoy shopping, theatre, cinema and eating out."

“Gipping Mill also offers excellent transport links, with the A14 just a few minutes’ drive from the development, making it ideal for anyone commuting to Ipswich, Stowmarket, Bury St Edmunds or Colchester.”

For lovers of the great outdoors, Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm and Broomhill Park are both nearby, and Felixstowe beach is only a 25-minute drive – the perfect place to spend the summer with young children.

Katy added: “The affordability of Great Blakenham combined with its semi-rural location make it a lovely choice for those just starting out.”

Properties currently available at Gipping Mill include a spacious three bedroom Hatfield style detached house, priced at £285,000, which boasts a stylish open plan dining kitchen with French doors to the private garden, allocated parking and a main bedroom with en suite.
