Many people agree that Suffolk is a lovely place to live.
Fifteen locations in the region get a mention in The Sunday Times ‘Best Places to Live in Britain’ guide, and the town of Woodbridge is named as the best place to live in the East of England.
So, if you’re set on a new home in Suffolk, where should you look?
Miller’s Quarter, Bury St Edmunds
Millers Quarter comprises 135 modern and luxurious one- and two-bedroom apartments. It sits on the A14 trunk road between Cambridge to the west and Ipswich to the east
Millers Quarter enjoys a town centre location which means a wide range of amenities are within easy reach. Expect the usual high-street offerings, plus independent retail outlets. There’s also a bustling, award-winning market and a good choice of cafes, not to mention Bury’s historic Abbey Gardens.
The final phase of this Weston Homes development is now available.
Laureate Fields, Felixstowe
Laureate Fields is a development of 197 two- three- and four-bedroom houses and one-bedroom apartments in Old Felixstowe. It’s set against the wild beauty of the Suffolk coast’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and there are beaches within easy walking distance.
Also within reach is Felixstowe town centre, where you’ll find high-street favourites alongside independent stores. There’s also a good range of places to eat, plus the Spa Pavilion and Palace Cinema for entertainment. There are excellent road and rail links to Ipswich, London and Cambridge.
Longwood Fields, Melton
This Bloor Homes development of two- three- and four-bedroom houses sits in the charming village of Melton, just a short distance from Woodbridge.
There’s an excellent range of established local facilities, amenities and transport links as well as local shops, pubs and eateries. The countryside is stunning, with open green spaces and riverside walks.
The development is in the early stages of construction, making it a great time to get in touch for the freedom to choose the finish you want for the kitchen, bathroom and en-suite.
What else is planned?
There are lots of new developments in the pipeline too. Brightwell Lakes at Martlesham Heath will see up to 2,000 homes – including affordable housing – plus a school, community centre, sports ground, convenience store, and those all-important areas of open space.
The Ipswich Garden Suburb, meanwhile, will see the construction of 3,500 homes across three distinct neighbourhoods. It’s one of the largest developments ever proposed in the town.
