Ipswich might be best known for its impressive heritage houses but one noted landmark has a more contemporary allure and visitors to the city can call it home for a while. With five bedrooms – and the ability to sleep up to 14 people with extra beds moved in – this is at the larger end of the accommodation offerings across the region.
Villa Modica, also known as the House on the Hill, is a multi-level Mediterranean-style house boasting sweeping views across the city and all the way to the distant mountain range. There are five bedrooms and four bathrooms plus two powder rooms, and modern living areas throughout, including decks, private balconies and a rooftop entertainment area, and a backyard pool. Elegant tiling and décor throughout completes the picture.
Villa Modica is named after the Sicilian home town of the owner Vince’s mother. It is a popular option for families in town for weddings who wish to stay at one location, and for groups of friends attending the many events the city hosts throughout the year.
