Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Reception hall, sitting room, dining room, study, kitchen, utility room, two cloakrooms, two ground floor bedrooms, a bathroom and en-suite shower room. Two first floor double bedrooms, one with balcony, and a shower room. Ample parking. Attractive gardens with garaging and other outbuildings. Woodland. In all about 1.5 acres. 

Location Set back from the small road running through Bromeswell via a small drive, the property is located in the most lovely private, yet not isolated position within an area of heath and woodland. Bromeswell is a small village, three miles from Woodbridge, bounded on the west by the River Deben and which benefits from a restaurant, The Unruly Pig and a golf club. It is the gateway parish for the environmentally sensitive district known as the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its protected rural landscape. There are numerous walks from the front door, with Rendlesham Forest being just 10 minutes walk away. The village lies only a mile from the World Heritage Site of Sutton Hoo; the burial ship of the Saxon King Raedwald. Bromeswell is well positioned to provide easy access on to the A12 trunk road or, alternatively East Suffolk's Heritage Coast. The nearby popular and historic market town of Woodbridge benefits from an excellent choice of primary and secondary schooling in both the state and private sectors together with a wide range of shopping facilities along the Thoroughfare in the heart of the town. Woodbridge is also a popular destination for sailing as it sits on the banks of the River Deben which is probably best known for its iconic Tide Mill building. The County Town of Ipswich is approximately 11½ miles to the west and Inter City rail connections from here to London's Liverpool Street take just over the hour. 

Description Whilst a spacious and unique house, Bromeswell Hollow's greatest asset is its wonderful quiet and private location. The grounds really are delightful with their formal gardens and additional woodland. The house itself is an eclectic mix. The original property is believed to have been a woodland bothy which was then altered and substantially extended over the years. At one end is a 1950s extension, and at the other, a single storey 1970s extension. The house benefits from a spacious reception hall as well as a sitting room opening to the dining room, and also a study. Also on the ground floor is a kitchen with Aga, a utility room and also two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and also a bathroom and two cloakrooms. On the first floor are two bedrooms, one of which opens out to a balcony with spiral stairs leading down to the garden. In addition is a 'Jack and Jill' shower room.
