Bellway to unveil two showhomes at new development in Whitton

Ridley's Orchard by Bellway Homes

Ridley’s Orchard by Bellway Homes – house-hunters will have the chance to explore not one but two brand-new showhomes at a development on the outskirts of Ipswich this spring.

Bellway will be opening the doors to its Silversmith and Tailor homes for viewings at Ridley’s Orchard in Whitton on Saturday 30 April.

The housebuilder is building 190 homes at the 25-acre site off Old Norwich Road, which has been named in homage to the Ridley family’s apple orchards that were founded on land in the area.

The Tailor is a three-bedroom home which features an open-plan kitchen and dining room with French doors leading out to the rear garden. The ground floor also includes a separate living room while upstairs there is a modern family bathroom and an en suite to the main bedroom.

The four-bedroom Silversmith has two sets of French doors leading out to the garden, from both the spacious living room and the open-plan kitchen and family room with breakfast bar. There is also a formal dining room, while the top floor features all four bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Jenny Walker, Sales Director for Bellway Essex, said: “We have experienced a great deal of interest in Ridley’s Orchard with a large number of potential buyers getting in touch with us even before we launched the site at the end of January.

“One of the added attractions for homebuyers is that all the homes on this development will be from Bellway’s flagship Artisan Collection. This is a high-quality range of spacious properties, designed after decades of customer feedback, which combines modern construction techniques and traditional craftsmanship.

“Both of these excellent showhomes are perfect examples of the attention to detail and high-specification that are hallmarks of this contemporary collection. The three-bedroom Tailor and the four-bedroom Silversmith will appeal to growing families, downsizers and professional couples looking for a property which has the space and flexibility to incorporate a home office.

“We believe that the Silversmith, in particular, will tick all the right boxes for families needing more room both upstairs and downstairs. Visitors will be able to appreciate the incredible feeling of light and space created by the two sets of French doors which both open onto the rear garden.

“Given how popular the development has proved so far, we are expecting lots of interest from people wanting to view these two showhomes on launch day so we would advise potential purchasers to book an appointment to secure their place.”

Ridley’s Orchard will feature 123 houses for private sale, ranging from two to four-bedroom properties, as well as 67 affordable homes available for local people through rent or shared ownership

The development will also feature a large area of public open space with a children’s play area and footpaths.

There is currently a selection of three and four-bedroom homes available to reserve at Ridley’s Orchard, with prices starting at £309,995.
