I am not aware of any built up bikes that come fitted out like that.
But, there it would not be too hard to build one up.
Ideally, you would need a frame with horizontal rear drops (or track ends) to tension the chain. Or you could use a chain tensioner. A Surly 1x1, for example has disc tabs and track ends. And there are numerous similar frames out there. Getting the suspension fork would be the easy part.
Just curious, but why IGH and a sus front fork? That seems like an odd choice. Few IGHs are rated for serious off-road. And I am of the opinion that there is no need whatsoever for suspension on the road.
