Ipswich is the county town of Suffolk and major commercial centre of East Anglia.  The A12 and A14 trunk routes provide excellent road communications with London, Cambridge, the Midlands and the national motorway network.  The M25 and Stansted Airport are both within an hours drive and the approximate train journey time from Ipswich to London Liverpool Street is  1 hour and 10 minutes.

The property is located in the central business district, on the west side of Museum Street, the town’s prime shopping area being immediately to the north.


The property comprises a purpose built office building arranged upon ground and two upper floors providing open plan accommodation.  Good quality glazed and studwork partitions have been installed to create individual offices, meeting rooms and kitchen facilities.  The rear area of the ground floor, previously used as a computer room facility, has scope for conversion to provide further offices.

A side entrance leads on to a small landscaped courtyard with gated access to the secure covered car park providing 12 spaces and approached via a service road off Blackhorse Lane.

We have not tested any of the services and all interested parties should rely upon their own enquiries with the relevant utility companies in connection with the availability and capacity of all of those serving the  property including IT and telecommunication links.


The front section of the ground floor has been refurbished and the rear section of the ground floor requires full refurbishment or conversion to offices, depending upon future requirements.  The entire first floor was refurbished upon the tenant originally taking possession in December 2018.

The front suite of the second floor would benefit from refurbishment prior to occupation although the rear suite was fully refurbished upon the premises being let to Sedgewick International UK in 2018, the tenant having vacated following the service of a break notice in October 2023.
