About the Area The thriving town of Ipswich is set on the estuary of the River Orwell and has undergone an extensive gentrification programme in recent years, mainly around the waterfront and has become a popular “commutable” town to London. Ipswich is the county town of Suffolk and offers a wide variety of shopping, commercial and leisure facilities including a full range of sports clubs and societies, restaurants and high street stores. There is an excellent choice of schooling within both the state and private sectors.

Excellent sailing and golfing facilities are both available nearby or on the popular Suffolk Heritage Coast. Ipswich provides good access to various road networks via the A12 to the South with links to London and the M25 and via the A14 to The Midlands and M11. The railway station provides mainline railway links to London’s Liverpool Street with an approximate journey time of sixty-five minutes. 

Directions Leave the town centre via Bolton Lane and turn right onto Tuddenham Road. Take the right hand turn into Vermont Road and continue into Vermont Crescent. The property can be found on the left hand side. 

Vendor Statement “We have enjoyed this superb family house for over four years now and have loved the proximity to Christchurch Park and having a fantastic school within easy walking distance.

The train station is conveniently close for me to commute to London and the house is a lovely to come home to. The children have made many friends in the area and it is great to see them play in a safe and quiet location. We have had many great parties here and the patio fireplace is a great success with guests on winter and summer evenings.

We will be sad to leave this wonderful home but look forward to building our own ‘grand design’ in the future.”
