The flat which is located on the first floor of Suffolk Place looks towards the Thoroughfare and Sun Lane. The position of the property is ideal for access to the main shops which are found in and around the Thoroughfare, while Elmhurst Park and the river are equally accessible. Suffolk Place provides peace of mind and security to the residents who are the active independent elderly. Access to the building is via an electronic door entry system which is connected to the flat and once inside there are emergency pull cords in the main room. The Residents' Lounge and garden areas provide an opportunity to mix with other residents or to remain independent as preferred. There is a communal Laundry Room, the opportunity to hire accommodation for guests and a lift to all floors. There is an area set aside for parking at the rear of the building, some of which is covered. Woodbridge has very good facilities for its size and these include doctors' surgeries, a public library, cinema, community hall and swimming pool as well as banks, building societies and restaurants.

For more local travel there are bus and taxi services. In order to occupy a flat at Suffolk Place a resident must be retired and have achieved the age of 55 or above.
