Each month in Suffolk homes change hands for many hundreds of thousands of pounds – sometimes millions.
Here we take a look at some of the most expensive domestic properties currently on the market in the county.
Wyndham House, Aldeburgh
A Grade II-listed Regency-style property with seven bedrooms, Wyndham House is described by agents Flick and Son as one of Aldeburgh’s finest residences.
As well as enjoying views over the sea it has a walled garden, swimming pool and a triple garage, as well as plenty of parking space.
The new owner will also enjoy deep sash windows at high ceilings throughout the house, while one of the bedrooms on the second floor opens out onto a small roof terrace.
The asking price for the property is available on application to the agents.
Balaton Lodge, Newmarket
Properties in East Anglia’s horseracing hub often attract high prices and this one is no exception.
It’s on the market for £2.5million – but you do get a lot for that price, including six bedrooms.
The master one has its own dressing room and bathroom, while there are five reception rooms, a basement with gym and a galleried landing.
High ceilings, bay windows and open fireplaces are all period features found in this home believed to have been built in 1890
Balaton Lodge is fairly close to the town centre and is equipped with its own alarm system, CCTV and electric gates at the end of the drive.
Marshland House, Sudbourne
Described as a contemporary mansion by agents Bedfords, Marshland House has two wings, seven bedrooms, a gym space, a jacuzzi and sauna room and a separate, indoor swimming pool.
It’s on the market for £1.975m, which also gets you mature gardens and grounds of around 15 acres and a hard tennis court.
Two of the bedrooms have both en suites and dressing rooms, while another bedroom also has an en suite.
No 1 Wood Barn Place, Great Woodbridge
This is a newly built property which is fairly close to Seckford golf course as well as being within easy reach of Ipswich.

There are two more bedrooms with en suites on the second floor and in the basement are the fifth and sixth bedrooms (with small en suites), a gym, a spa/sauna room, a laundry and a cinema.
A separate triple garage also has an office above it and additional land is available if required. The price is available on application to agents Humberts.
Vale Farm, Hollesley
Not only do you get a seven bedroom house for the £1.95m guide price, but the ten acres of grounds include a very large pond – probably better described as a small lake.

As well as the main house there is a separate self-contained two bedroom annexe.
