SOLD: Twist Meadow £79,000 Freehold


Twist Meadow is situated at the northern end of Barham Wood, a larger area of meadows and woodland protected by the woodlands covenant. The meadow is accessed via an excellent stoned track which will be suitable for year round vehicular access.

On arriving at Twist Meadow it is immediately apparent that you are well away from all the hustle and bustle of modern life. The meadow is very gently sloping and well drained. A number of ancient oak trees mark the boundaries and help frame stunning views across gently undulating rural Suffolk farmland. A small bank marks the northern boundary where a bench is located, please do take some time sitting here when visiting to take in the peaceful surroundings.

The meadow could have so many uses in its current form or could also be planted to form a wonderful wildlife haven. It would be a perfect spot to keep bees with the nearby woodlands and without much work could be transformed into a spectacular wildflower meadow. Anyone wishing to offset their carbon footprint could plant trees creating your very own woodland.

Nearby Barham is one of the Villages with a claim to have been the basis of Charles Dickens' story Oliver Twist. Dickens is said to have been shown around the workhouse on a visit to Suffolk and to have seen a record book containing the details of a ten-year-old boy's apprenticeship.

The woodland is only five miles North from the town of Ipswich and a short distance from both the A12 and A14 however feels very rural and offers owners a perfect countryside retreat.

Particulars and plans were prepared by our local manager, Matt Marples

The purchasers of the meadow will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
