Pertwee Estates has just gained permission from Ipswich Borough Council for the conversion of one of the town’s most interesting and historic buildings into office accommodation. This iconic building, to be known as The Maltings, is close to Ipswich station, town centre and business district. It will become part of a new ribbon of development and regeneration along Princes Street and the riverside towards the Waterfront.
The Croft was a rather uninspiring house in a superb location. The site was acquired and planning permission gained for a completely new 4,000 sq ft house in a style more akin to its neighbours and the surrounding area.
Lodge Park is an established Business Park specialising in renting Serviced Office Suites and was developed and run by Pertwee Estates Ltd. Lodge Park is located on the opposite side of the A12 from the Colchester Business Park, only yards from the A12 / A120 junction.

Oaks Drive had been used for many years by an Osteopathy Practice, having originally been built as flats in the 1960’s. Pertwee Estates totally transformed the property for the Colchester Catalyst Charity to prepare it for sale.
Manor Farm was a Grade II listed jettied Hall house that had been variously altered over the years. In 2000, planning was gained for a substantial new wing of circa 2,000 square feet, built in a Georgianised Tudor style.
