SUFFOLK & NORTH-EAST ESSEX
From our base in Ipswich we are well placed to provide residential surveying advice throughout the IP and CO postcode areas.
A direct train line from London which takes around an hour, affordable property prices and ever improving leisure facilities make Ipswich a popular destination. Recent developments by the waterside make the most of the views, are perfect for taking advantage of the many restaurants and bars the area has to offer and may still be within the budget of first time buyers.
Further inland there is no shortage of pretty villages within the Suffolk countryside including Lavenham, which made the Sunday Times’ list of the best villages in Britain and Framlingham where singer Ed Sheeran was brought up and still spends much of his time today. Further west, close to the border with Cambridgeshire, is the cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds which, amongst other things, is the home of the famous Greene King brewery. A visit and tasting session is highly recommended.
Coastal towns are always popular, the largest of which would be Felixstowe to the west of the county. A particular feature is the Grade II listed Victorian Seafront Gardens which span between the town and the sea front and then there’s Stowmarket, the largest town in mid-Suffolk with a shopping area to match.
Over the border in Essex is the town of Colchester with its stunning Norman castle. Colchester has a claim on being the UKs oldest recorded town but whether that is true or not it is well worth a visit. With property prices considerably lower than the capital and a commute that is well under an hour Colchester is another popular choice for first time buyers.
