This semi-detached house was completely renovated in 2015 and was purposely refurbished to accommodate five working professionals. Upton Close is a cul-de-sac, and despite being very central is a quiet residential road situated off Woodbridge Road. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the town centre and a 2 minute walk to many main bus routes, including the 66 bus route to Kesgrave/Martlesham/BT. The house has a total of five double bedrooms ranging from £370 – £450 per month, depending on size. Each room is fully furnished and has a TV point, wireless internet throughout the house and a lock on every bedroom door for privacy. The largest room (£450) has two large double mirrored wardrobes so ideal if you need a lot of storage for clothes. The second largest room for £400 has patio doors giving private access to the garden, so ideal if you are a smoker (outside only). The two medium sized bedrooms (£380) are still a good size with plenty of storage and the small double room (£370) would suit somebody on a low budget who would like a small but comfortable room in a lovely home.
The house also has two shower rooms (shared between the five tenants), a communal kitchen/diner (equipped with a table to seat six, two fridge freezers, oven, hob, washing machine, separate tumble dryer, microwave, kettle and toaster), and lounge area with sofas/seating area with a large TV. There is a small private garden with a washing line and a separate locked side entrance (in addition to the front entrance) which is ideal for storing bikes securely under a roof.
Situated in east Ipswich, in one of the most sought after areas in which to live, there are direct buses to BT Adastral Park and the hospital. There is off-road parking for one car and this is allocated to a specific tenant on a first come, first served basis for an additional charge of £30 per month. There is also unrestricted parking on Alexandra Road which is opposite the house. A single yellow line outside the front of the house means you can park there after 6pm and before 8am Monday – Saturday and all day on Sundays.
We are happy to send you video tours of any of our available properties as well of the individual bedrooms on Whatsapp in case you are not able to view the property in person. If it is not possible for you to attend a viewing and meet us in person, then we would require a video call with you, in place of a face to face meeting, in which we would talk you through the application process to ensure you are happy and able to fulfil our application criteria.
Please be aware that we require a holding fee one week’s rent to secure the room whilst we take you through the application process. Our application process includes references, checking ID and share codes if you are not a UK resident. Once the application process is complete, we will then require a full month’s rent as a deposit, minus the one week’s holding fee you have already paid. These deposit details will then be entered into the ‘Mydeposits’ scheme and you will be issued with a certificate as proof of this protection. The day that you move into the property we will require another month’s rent for the month ahead. To help your budgeting, basically we require a payment of two months’ rent (broken down in the three stages as described above) before we can let you move in.
