A Kesgrave woodland is being sold in one 90 acre lot by estate agents with a guide price of £700,000.
Framlingham-based Clarke & Simpson were asked to put the woodland near Foxhall Road and Dobbs and Bell Lanes up for auction after the owner died.
It has oak, coppiced Hornbeam and a block of Scots Pine in the outer belt nearer the gate. In addition, there is the odd copper beach and there are Silver Birch throughout.
Hayden Foster, a partner at Clarke & Simpson, claimed that the land was likely to be used for recreation and it is "highly unlikely" to ever get planning permission for housing.
"Some people like to own a piece of England," Mr Foster said. "There are people who have money to spend in that way."
