Search for Ipswich properties

  • You can search for property of a particular type, within a specified price range.

All of this technology aside though, sometimes it's better to pop into the office and see someone face to face. We have four Ipswich offices:- a town centre office in the Buttermarket, a busy office at the Foxhall Road roundabout on the ring road, our Martlesham Heath office and our office in Norwich Road.  All are manned by very experienced, knowledgeable and friendly staff who are only too pleased to take the time to get to know you and discuss your requirements in depth. Why not call them on 01473 721133 for a chat? Our offices are open from 09.00-18.30 Monday to Friday, 09.00-16.30 on Saturdays and 10.00-14.00 on Sundays. Special arrangements can be made if viewings need to be accompanied outside these hours.

And, don't worry if we can't find what you are looking for immediately! We are taking on new properties every day and we will let you know as soon as something comes in that matches your requirements.

About Ipswich

Ipswich is a thriving university town with a truly cosmopolitan demographic. Its busy town centre boasts a wealth of high street names as well as specialist and independently owned outlets. A bustling community, the average age of which has recently been significantly lowered by an influx of students from all over the country, Ipswich is now the target for many trendy bar and restaurant chains. Yes, cafe culture has come to town and nowhere is that more obvious than down at the docks. The docklands and Ipswich marina are peppered with pavement cafes and bistros.  And what better places to sit and watch the boats go by whilst enjoying a light bite or a glass of wine?

Christchurch Park is perhaps Ipswich's biggest and best known green space and at just 5 minutes' walk from the centre of town you can be there, relaxing in the cool shade of some of its ancient and splendid trees in a matter of moments. It is THE venue in town for many concerts and events, annually hosting a firework spectacular which each year sees thousands of fireworks go up in smoke in time to some great music.

Many live bands have appeared here including Jools Holland, Rick Astley, ABC, Nik Kershaw, Go West, T'pau and Tony Hadley as well as the likes of Katherine Jenkins, Billy Ocean, Soul II Soul, Jocelyn Brown, The Gibson Brothers and Peter Andre. We're not saying you should relocate to Ipswich for the music and the pyrotechnics but it is an added bonus!

Ipswich offers a vibrant mix of heritage, the arts, theatre, cinema, clubs and bars, yet wherever you go in and around the town, you are only minutes away from some of the prettiest Suffolk villages and countryside, as well as the stunning scenery provided by the celebrated Suffolk coastline.

About Suffolk

The Suffolk countryside has inspired artists, sculptors, painters, writers, poets and songwriters for centuries. Within 5 minutes of Ipswich town centre you can be seemingly miles from anywhere, among open fields of wheat and oilseed rape. On your travels you are bound to happen upon one of the very many chocolate box villages and hamlets that this part of the country is famous for. Look out for such places as Belstead, Bentley, Bucklesham, Capel St Mary, Claydon, Holbrook, Kesgrave, Martlesham, Rushmere, Stutton and Westerfield. All of these little gems are within striking distance of Ipswich town centre and yet some are as rural as you could hope to find.

Part of the great appeal of Suffolk is its rural outlook. Breathtaking countryside combines with wonderful coastline and sea views to present a county that quite literally, has it all. Suffolk is the larder of England, its fertile land bringing forth foodstuffs and beverages of every kind. Free range and organic is the order of the day here, and the many farmers markets held regularly throughout the county are a testament to that.

Suffolk is country life at its best and yet the railway stations at Ipswich and Westerfield can have you at Liverpool St Station in less than an hour - still another reason why so many people are choosing to relocate to Suffolk.
