Enjoy living in a new home in beautiful surroundings
Surrounded by lovely countryside, and not far from Suffolk's stunning coastline, Buckton Place is our collection of new homes in the popular small town of Leiston. Offering a variety of two, three, four and five-bedroom properties, there's a choice of quality family housing here that meets a wide range of needs.
Leiston is halfway between the coast and the A12, the main route from Greater London via Ipswich in the south of the county, to Lowestoft in the north. This location puts work and leisure opportunities within convenient reach making it a great base for a growing family. The coast and countryside in this part of Suffolk are a delight to explore. Classic seaside resorts, such as Aldeburgh and Thorpeness, and historic villages such as Orford, are set within the surroundings of the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This really is a lovely place to live.
This sales office is now closed. All enquires for the last remaining plots will be forwarded to the head office.
Our show homes are open for you to visit. If you’d like to come and visit, arranging an appointment is advisable so we can ensure we have someone here to welcome you, however, this isn’t essential; please feel free to stop by at a time convenient to you. Please just check our opening times above.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
If you enjoy keeping fit, Buckton Place is close to some great leisure facilities. Leiston Leisure Centre, with its state-of-the-art facilities, includes a swimming pool, gym, squash courts, and a soft-play area for young children. Thorpeness Meare is excellent for outdoor activities, where you can hire rowing boats, canoes and kayaks.
Leiston and its surrounding area have plenty of attractions including Orford Castle, Orford Ness National Nature Reserve, and Helmingham Hall Gardens. You will be close to the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Go back in time and visit the 14th century remains of Leiston Abbey, located in open fields just north-west of the town. Aldeburgh, a picturesque sea-side town, is a great place for a day out. The beach is very popular with families, and there are independent shops on the high street, and many places to eat and drink, including an award winning fish & chip shop.
The A12 is the closest main road route, running all the way from Lowestoft in the north-east to Ipswich in the south of the county, where it links to the A14. It continues south into Essex via Chelmsford, and all the way to Romford. You can pick up mainline rail connections at Ipswich, with trains to London taking about an hour and 15 minutes.
