A comfortable mews house enjoying southerly views over a private valley. The Orangery forms part of the buildings which were converted immediately to the rear of Broke Hall, situated on the edge of the private park and benefiting from stunning views over the meadows and woodlands of the valley beyond. Presenting mellow red brick elevations under a slate roof, the accommodation extends to almost 1,300 sq ft and is set over two floors. The principal reception room and kitchen/breakfast room are positioned on the top floor, commanding parkland views and the two bedrooms, dressing room, ensuite shower rooms and bathroom, along with entrance hall are located on the ground floor. OUTSIDE Double French doors lead from the principal reception room to the steel balcony with brick steps down to a sunken terrace, and then further steps down to the bedroom terrace below. Beyond the terrace the boundary is open and connects with the parkland. To the front of The Orangery is the double garage with up and over door along with parking facilities. LOCATION Broke Hall Park stands on the banks of the River Orwell opposite Pin Mill, just 4 miles from Ipswich town centre. The Hall itself, is a magnificent red brick Georgian mansion, and is Grade II* listed. It is situated at the end of a quarter mile long lime tree avenue and is surrounded by a Repton designed deer park. The 16 acre meadow between the drive and the river is share owned by the majority of the residents of Broke Hall Park. Today the Hall is sub-divided into apartments and flats and within the grounds the former Orangery wing and estate buildings have been converted to a select number of residences. Broke Hall Park is administered by a resident's association with a modest annual charge for parkland and driveway maintenance. There is access to the coastal path, and to a riverside path, which leads to the neighbouring village of Levington. Educationally the area is well served with a wide choice of top performing schools catering for all age groups in both the state and private sectors, including Orwell Park Prep School, conveniently located at the head of the park's drive, a primary school in the village, together with outstanding schools in nearby Ipswich (4 miles) and the charming, historic riverside town of Woodbridge (9 miles). The A14 is just two 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 A12). There are excellent water sport opportunities on the Orwell and Deben estuaries, including the nearby Levington Marina and there are golf courses at Ipswich, Rushmere, Seckford, Woodbridge and Felixstowe, together with a full range of shopping and commercial facilities in Ipswich, and a very convenient village store in Nacton.
