Two Bedroom Penthouse In IP1
Home From Home is delighted to offer for sale this prestigious top-floor penthouse apartment in central Ipswich: two floors of generous living space – approximately 1350 sq ft – located within the well regarded IPAXIS development. There is lift access to the apartment and gated entry to the development leading to either the courtyard garden or the secure car park. IPAXIS is located within easy walking distance of high street shops, entertainment facilities, Ipswich Waterfront restaurants and the railway station with its regular services to London Liverpool Street and Norwich. Viewing is essential and you might have thought you had walked through the wardrobe with this property; no lions or witches to worry about though just an inspiring feeling as you encounter some fantastical spaces.
The owner writes: ‘I fell in love with this apartment almost immediately and I hope you do too. I was a regular commuter so loved the ability to get to the station in a short walk; really close by are great restaurants and the marina of course. The apartment is located exactly where you’d want to put a pin in the map.’
General Apartment Information
The apartment benefits from two double bedrooms, two en-suite bathrooms, a kitchen-diner and a large living room with a vaulted ceiling. It has an innovative underfloor heating system which is activated by floor level pressure sensors and there are temperature controls in each room. There is well designed lighting which includes recessed ceiling lights and dimmer switches.
A videophone entry system connects to your apartment television and there is a convenient ‘swipe’ fob entry system for access to the development locally or you can control entry from anywhere in the world with the use of your phone.
The owner writes: ‘You’ll notice that the bedrooms are at entrance level. This proves very practical and is designed to reduce any noise from other apartments or from your own entertaining.’
Kitchen/Diner (16’ 4” X 13’ 5”)
The kitchen is of a contemporary design with integrated appliances: stainless steel oven, hob, extractor hood, washer/dryer, dishwasher and fridge freezer. Down lighters add ambience within this sophisticated apartment.
The owner writes: ‘ The separate kitchen is ideal for those who like to cook and dine as it is a self-contained space away from the main living room. I have had some large dinner parties here as well as some more intimate occasions.’
Living Room (16’ 4” X 22’ 0”)
An exuberant space with a vaulted ceiling. A baby grand sits comfortably in the corner – perhaps waiting to be played or even listened to (‘Play it again Sam’) – amongst all the other entertainment technology. Here there is more than enough space for any occasion. French doors lead onto a private balcony.
The owner writes: ‘ The space lends itself to your imagination. No compromise, bright and airy, well appointed with a balcony which I used for al fresco dining.’
Master Bedroom (12’ 5” X 16’ 4”)
A spacious room with access to a private balcony that runs the length of the apartment.
En-Suite Bathrooms (6’ 9” X 5’ 9”) & (7’ 2” X 6’ 5”)
Each bathroom has designer fittings, full height quality tiling and is well-lit by perfectly placed down lighters.
Second Bedroom (11’ 0” X 16’ 1”)
A delightful guest room with access to the private balcony.
The owner writes: ‘Each bedroom has plenty of space for king size beds and storage; one perhaps suited to longer stays by guests unless you want a massive room for yourself’.
Car Park & Grounds
There is a secure gated car park with allocated permit parking and a radio fob allows access. The courtyard garden is illuminated at night by carefully designed lighting. There is secure bicycle storage and communal bin stores.
