Heathlands Park is situated in a desirable location, close to the town centre of Ipswich but just outside the Ipswich town boundary, in a quiet position bordering the local golf course. It is a secure development, with a security barrier at the entrance to the park. The entrance is in Foxhall Road, but the park is set back from the road so that there is no traffic noise.
As you drive down a short side road and through the security barrier, there is a beautiful garden area, including a large pond. From there, tarmac roads lead to spacious plots arranged, for the most part, in small cul-de-sacs. There are car parking spaces throughout the park; most of them are in the cul-de-sac areas, so they are very close to individual homes. There are car parks for visitors, too, and some garages are available to rent.
The park has mature shrubs and trees throughout. There are beautiful communal garden areas, and residents’ gardens are also well cared-for and full of colour. Electricity and mains gas is individually metered to each home, and these and telephone connections are all underground, so there are no overhead cables to spoil the beautiful appearance of the park
Local Services and Amenities
A bus service runs along the main road outside the park, serving the town centre and the two major supermarkets (Tescos and Sainsburys). There are also shops within easy walking distance, including a Co-op grocery store, newsagents, chemist and hairdressers. Other local amenities include a Post Office, supermarkets, doctors, hospitals and a large pub/restaurant called The Golf Hotel which offers a range of meals.
Heathlands Park has been owned by Kevin Morfett since 1983. Helping him in the office is Nickie Grant, whose friendly and lively manner makes her very popular with the residents. James has recently joined the family business, previously working in residential property in London.
