Older spacious property near a lovely park in Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk

Our house is a spacious detached property with a large garden in a very quiet residential street in Ipswich, recently voted the 3rd best place to live in the UK. It has 4 reception rooms, two double bedrooms, one with a king sized bed and one a double bed, and a family bathroom.There is a separate upstairs toilet and a downstairs cloakroom. It has a large comfortable conservatory.

We have a large garden with a table seating 6 and some comfy deck chairs in a storage unit behind the summer house. We have a bistro table seating two in our large front garden which is south facing and a very sunny spot in the mornings.

It is a 10 minute walk to the town through a beautiful park within which sits Christchurch Mansion, full of Constable and Gainsborough paintings. Antiques roadshow recently filmed two episodes in Christchurch Park. Ipswich waterfront is just five minutes further on and is a great place to enjoy the many restaurants and cafes set around the lovely marina.

About the location

Eat Anglia and Suffolk are delightful areas with a history of many thousands of years built on the wealth of the wool trade in the Middle Ages. There are many historical buildings in Ipswich and surrounding villages and many medieval churches in the town itself.

Suffolk is a hidden gem with the coastal towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold and the world famous Snape concert hall all under an hour`s drive away. Minsmere, the RSPB reserve when Spring Watch was filmed is a 40 minute drive. Constable county is 15 mins drive.

We are an hour from London, Norwich and Cambridge. East Anglia is the sunniest and driest part of the UK.
