New House Farm is situated in the heart of the village of Little Bromley. It is within easy reach of the centre of Manningtree which lies at the head of the Stour Estuary and is situated between Colchester, Ipswich and Harwich. It offers a wide variety of amenities including sailing, various pubs and restaurants, a supermarket, general stores, optician, doctors surgery, primary and secondary school, delicatessen, banks and sports centre. There are direct commuter trains from Manningtree station direct to London's Liverpool Street, taking approximately 55 minutes with a connection at Stratford to the Dockland's Light Railway. The sought after villages of Dedham and East Bergholt are within just a few minutes' drive. The nearby town of Colchester, reputed to be the oldest recorded Roman town in Britain, and Ipswich, Suffolk's county town, also offer main line rail links as well as a wider range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities. There are regular ferry services to the continent from Harwich.


Listed Grade II of Special Architectural and Historic Interest, New House Farm has undergone a thorough restoration by the current owners and is now presented to a particularly high standard throughout. The house has enormous period character with superb reception rooms, particularly the drawing room and dining room which both have excellent ceiling heights, large full height sash windows, open fireplaces and exposed wooden floors in the hall. The house divides well between the large and imprssive formal reception rooms and the informal kitchen/breakfast room and smaller sitting room, also with an open fire.
The kitchen/breakfast room is a particular feature of the house with exposed beams, a refurbished four oven Aga and extensive bespoke floor and wall kitchen units. A playroom lies just beyond the kitchen, ideal for families with young children although this room could be equally well used as a study.

The house is set well back, approached over a gravelled drive and surrounded by numerous trees & hedges. The drive culminates in front of a large Grade II Listed 18th Century Barn currently used as garaging and storage but has potential to convert into additional residential accommodation, subject to the necessary consents.

The gardens of New House Farm surround the property with mature trees, lawns and a heated swimming pool with a hydraulic safety cover surrounded by clipped yew hedges.
