Downsizing couple find perfect home at Chilton Place

One of the first couples have moved into their new home in Anderson’s Chilton Place development in Suffolk.

Graham and Kelly Cook were one of the first residents to move into the new development in Sudbury – downsizing from their former four‐bedroom property in Harlow, moving into a two-bedroom bungalow.

With their three grown-up children settled elsewhere, the couple were looking for a new-build property in Suffolk, next to a reasonable-sized town, offering peace and quiet and a more countryside setting.

They chose Chilton Place, in the bustling and historic market town of Sudbury, nestled in the beautiful Stour Valley.

The development is an inspired collection of two and three bedroom bungalows and two-, three- and four-bedroom houses perfectly placed to enjoy the countryside while having excellent transportation links.

The Cooks wanted a new-build property and a plain canvas to make their own mark.

As an engineer, Graham could envisage how the house and development would look, so buying off-plan was not a concern.

They made an offer in September 2020 and had their choice of the first homes on the development.

“Externally I love the style of the building, particularly the colour of the bricks and roof design,” said Graham. “The large French doors lead on to a really lovely big patio.

“Outside is really something special and we’re not overlooked. I also really wanted my own garage and driveway so that was a big bonus for me. Inside we have a spacious kitchen/dining area and that’s where we spend most of our time.”

Sudbury is a quaint market town on the edge of the River Stour. As a keen cyclist, Graham’s really enjoyed exploring the local villages and cycle trails.

“It’s somewhat more hilly than Harlow, but very beautiful and relaxing,” he said.

Having lived in the same property in Harlow for 24 years it was a big move.

“The Anderson team have been thoughtful and both the sales and sites teams very responsive,” said Graham.

“Our family have all fallen in love with our new home and we’re looking forward to getting to know our new community as the development grows.”

The final phase of Chilton Place has launched and is now available to reserve.
