A Chance to Live in the Grounds of Historic Priory

A Chance to Live in the Grounds of a Historic Priory

Details have been announced of new homes built within the ground of the historic St Osyth Priory.

The owners of the priory, which dates back to the 12th century, were controversially given permission in 2014 to build homes on the site despite ferocious opposition from villagers. The scheme was part of an enabling development which will see cash generated from the new homes go towards repairs of the historic buildings. The estate includes 22 separate Grade I and II listed buildings. The 73 new homes range from large four-bedroom detached family houses to one- bedroom apartments and developer City & Country says they will be built in traditional styles. Prices will range from £200,000 to £750,000. The properties feature details such as soft red Flemish-bond brickwork, clay roof tiles and purpose- made joinery.

Suzanne Aplin, sales and marketing director said: “Our new homes really do give buyers an opportunity to be part of something special. They offer a rare opportunity to live within an idyllic estate in a protected heritage setting that is genuinely exceptional. Beautiful designed and specified to a high quality, this wide range of new homes is perfectly suited to family buyers and professionals, or for purchasers looking to downsize in a tranquil location.”

City & Country also will be working to transform some of the historic buildings on the priory site into a visitor centre, wedding venue & restaurant/ pub.
