About the development

Brightwell Lakes

In the first phase of the development, Brightwell Lakes will be home to 317 high-quality 2-5 bed homes. This includes 195 homes on our Auster Place phase and a further 122 homes on our Deben Park phase, which is currently home to our Sales Information Centre and Show Homes.

There will be different character areas as you move through the development and phases to create a sense of identity and the design will be in keeping with the building character of the surrounding local area.  

Cycle ways and pedestrian links will feature throughout the development and phase 1 will include allotments for residents and public open space.


Brightwell Lakes masterplan

Brightwell Lakes is destined to be a desirable community, ideal for the whole family. With shops, facilities, a school and an abundance of green space on your doorstep, this is the ideal place to call home. Plus, with community centres, allotments and orchards on-site and within walking distance, Brightwell Lakes will foster a true community feel. Enjoy access to multiple play areas and sports facilities, including a sports pavilion and pitches as well as excellent transport links to the wider area, thanks to the incorporation of footpaths and cycle paths, and investment in improved public transport and highways.

The local area

Whether you're strolling along Ipswich's vibrant waterfront, sampling the bars and cafes perched on the water's edge, teeing off at Woodbridge Golf Club, gazing at coastal views from Felixstowe Beach, or enjoying a spot of shopping at Martlesham Heath Retail Park, there's something to suit everyone within a short drive from Brightwell Lakes.

As part of the planning consent for this development, a number of new homes are designated as affordable housing. These properties will remain as affordable housing tenure and are specifically shown to make it clear that they are not available for general sale. The remaining homes on the development are available for open market sale, including “bulk sales” (meaning the sale of more than one home to a single purchaser) to purchasers, who could be private individuals or another type of purchaser (for example local authorities, housing associations or other commercial landlords), and therefore the mix of tenures on a development may change.

The perfect place to be

On the edge of the rolling countryside, Brightwell Lakes is the perfect place to call home if you’re looking for a balanced lifestyle and want to enjoy life in a welcoming local community. Nearby, you’ll find Tesco Extra for your weekly shop, a range of leisure facilities and a wide choice of pre-school, primary and secondary schools. Or just 5 miles away, the vibrant market town of Woodbridge offers an excellent range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants and indoor and outdoor activities.
