One of five attractive town houses set in grounds of The Bullride which was built in the 1880s by John Grout who ran a horse dealing business and owned the nearby Bull Hotel. Mr Grout’s stables, located behind the Bull Hotel, once supplied horses to almost every crowned head of Europe including the King of Italy. After his death in 1886 his stables were auctioned off as “first-class accommodation for 42 horses” the following March. Local developer Andrew Frenzel of Foundation Properties has now created “first-class living accommodation” for those looking to live in the town centre of Woodbridge.
The town houses stand on the original footprint of the historic ‘Bullride’ building and are constructed from a selection of reclaimed original materials combined with modern architectural elements. All dwellings benefit from a 10 year buildings guarantee. Each property has been built to a high specification and includes composite aluminium and wood windows and doors, oak flooring in the entrance hall to match the handmade oak staircases, luxury kitchens with integrated appliances including dishwasher, Neff gas hob with extractor, fridge-freezer and two ovens; open-plan living areas, underfloor heating to ground floor and radiators to first floor, all heated by the highly energy-efficient gas-fired boilers. Bathrooms and en-suites are presented with a range of built-in vanity furniture with white sanitaryware, thermostatic showers, wall tiling, mirror and towel radiators. The properties will be completely finished with carpets, tiles and oak flooring.
