Peter Ogilvie, property agent from Savills in Ipswich, said: “Ivy Lodge Barn is a very rare property in the market.

"Set in a wonderful, peaceful rural position between Woodbridge and Framlingham, it blends a contemporary finish with period character remarkably well.

"The home and extensive grounds are exceptionally well presented and the original beams and open studwork of the main timber barn combine seamlessly with modern features like underfloor heating.

"We have seen phenomenal demand this year – with people continuing to want more space both inside and out and easy access to the countryside and coast – and I’m sure it will attract great interest.”
