STARTING initially within a ten-mile radius of Ipswich Town, their office, located at the foot of Christchurch Park is in the perfect position to cast their net towards top quality and high-end Suffolk assets.
With over 25 years of expertise, Richard has been running a successful bespoke property finding service, in St. James’ Square London, since 2011, buying and renting homes and offices for high-net-worth clients in prime locations. Richard spent his childhood at his parents cottage in Shingle Street, near Woodbridge, and later moving up here with his own family.
Over the years, he’s often been asked to advise on where to move to, particularly from the North London sector. “It’s seemed natural to us to open a completely separate enterprise and offer to the wider audience a collection of best-in-class homes and commercial opportunities available for purchase and rent; continuity is everything and if we can be part of that journey for people from London to Suffolk, then that’s perfect for us” he says.
‘The annual meteoric rise of capital values in the sought-after London post-codes have resulted in astonishing sales and rental figures. However, political and economic upheavals, changes to Stamp Duty Land Tax, and Brexit, have seen the ‘prime price tide’ turn firmly towards the exit.
‘The gravy train is over’, writes Richard. ‘The best-in-class properties were purchased some time ago by the Internationals with deep pockets, and cash, and in a negative market, there’s no panic from this sector; they’ll ride it out, or write it off, to their next generation.’ This puts the thirty something young professional London families with 1.5 children looking further afield for their big move.
For years, there’s been a propensity to buy, make money and move on, now it’s different. People are either buying a home to ‘live in’ or renovating their existing residence. Value for money and better quality of life is the driving force.
We already have a very special family home to offer, that’s very private, and secluded. This gem cannot be viewed from the road, yet it’s walking distance to Ipswich Marina, the bars, restaurants and shops.
To find a house with gardens of approx. 1.25 acres so close to town is virtually impossible; with a possibility to extend and develop, subject to the necessary planning consents this is a rare opportunity!
