The individual flats were fully renovated some years ago and have been well maintained ever since - two have the benefit of gas fired central heating and two have electric night storage heating. The accommodation is light and airy with large windows and there are fine views to the rear over the town towards the Orwell Bridge from the upper floors. there are a number of gracious rooms with high ceilings, deep skirtings, some original cornicing and fireplaces which are all characteristics of a fine period house of the era.

Local shops are only a short walk away. Ipswich mainline railway station with its regular inter-city service to London's Liverpool Street Station (approx. 70 minutes) is only 5 minutes drive.
