Property Description

Full description

A most interesting mid mews house, forming part of Broke Hall Manor's Orangery. Stunning open countryside views and just a short stroll to banks of the River Orwell, a truly idyllic location.

Broke Hall, a magnificent red brick Georgian mansion, is a Grade II* listed building standing on the north bank of the River Orwell, opposite Pin Mill. It is situated at the end of a quarter-mile long lime tree avenue and is surrounded by a Repton-designed deer park.

The Hall was the ancestral home of the Broke family, having been granted by Henry VIII to Sir Richard Broke, who was at the time First Baron of the Exchequer. However, the most notable scion of the family was Admiral Philip Broke, who was honoured for saving the reputation of the Royal Navy by his famous victory, off Boston Harbour in 1813, when his ship, HMS Shannon, defeated and captured the frigate USS Chesapeake in the War of American independence. 

The Hall itself, is today sub-divided into apartments and within the grounds the former Orangery wing and estate buildings have been converted to a select number of high quality residences. In nearby Nacton village, there is an outstanding private school, plus a primary school and store. 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 to the country's main road network (via the A12).
