The county town of Ipswich provides a full range of shopping and commercial facilities and lies just 3 miles away and also provides a mainline rail service to London Liverpool St, taking approximately 65 minutes. The A14 is just 2 miles away and provides links to the east coast ports, Cambridge and the Midlands, as well as to London and the country's main road network (via the A11).


Shannon House is a delightful property offering light and airy accommodation with striking large sash windows and extends to 2000 sq. ft. The property is a wing of stately home and has recently been completely renovated by the current owners and is beautifully presented throughout, incorporating the finest fixtures and fittings.

The property is approached via a quarter mile long driveway with mature lime trees and stunning views towards the River Orwell. The driveway heads toward Broke Hall and veers to the left to the parking area for Shannon House.

The front of the property is accessed through an iron gate, and a central pathway leads to the front door. There is a beautifully designed formal courtyard garden to the immediate front of the property, with a seating area, which is enclosed by a brick wall to allow for privacy.

The property is entered via an impressive entrance hall with Manhattan blue honed stone flooring and leads to two well-proportioned bedrooms. The double aspect master suite with American walnut flooring has a luxury en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom is fitted with English light oak flooring and incorporates a walk-in wardrobe. Both bedrooms benefit from extensive built-in bespoke storage. The family bathroom, at the far end of the entrance hall, comprises floor to ceiling polished marble and includes a walk in shower and wall mounted WC.

First floor accommodation is accessed via a contemporary oak staircase and comprises the grand living room with Walnut flooring, hand crafted fitted alcove units and carefully designed cornicing and an architectural ceiling all taken from moulds of traditional designs in old English houses. The spacious bespoke fitted kitchen has been thoughtfully designed with oak lined main units with a hand painted finish and a solid oak island all topped with black granite work surface. The units incorporate many built in appliances and benefits from extensive storage space and room for a dining room table. The living room and kitchen enjoy stunning far reaching views over parkland and towards the River Orwell. The first floor is completed by an elegantly finished workstation on the landing made from solid English "Pippy" Oak and a separate WC.

Shannon House is situated in the peaceful setting of Broke Hall Park within a 45 acre Repton designed deer park and resting on the banks of the River Orwell, opposite Pin Mill.

From the grounds there is access to the foreshore and to a riverside path, which leads to the neighbouring village of Levington.

In nearby Nacton Village there is a primary school and village shop, and the outstanding private school, Orwell Park, is within a half mile of the property.
