Spectacular River & Sea Views

About this property

  • High Broom is a light and bright bunglaow constructed from timber frame and is thought to date back to the late 1920's. The house which has been in the same ownership for nearly 80 years has enormous charm. The sitting room benefits from an open fireplace and french windows that open out to the decked & covered terrace that has beautiful far reaching views over the river and sea beyond. The accommodation is well laid out with two or three bedrooms, a kitchen and two bath/shower rooms. Outside is a detached studio/utility room and further from the house is a detached garage. The spacious plot is elevated and well planted with a range of mature trees and shrubs. Paths lead from the house through the wonderfully wild grounds providing spectacular views in all directions both back towards Orford and over the ness and also to the south over Havergate Island and the sea beyond. The amazing views continue to the west where elevated views over the Butley River can be found.

Local information

  • High Broom is set in one of the very finest settings on the Suffolk Coastline with superb far reaching views over The River Ore, The Butley River and the sea. It is remarkably rare to find a property in such a wonderful secluded and entirely quiet position with such a range of spectacular views of the rivers and sea. The views are varied being over Orford Ness and also Havergate Island. The wildlife and in particular birdlife is abundant. There are a variety of beautiful walks directly from the property down to The Butlely River, along the River wall into Orford, across the marshes to the river and along a range of footpaths across the attractive surrounding countryside. The Butley Ferry (a volunteer operated rowing boat) allows access across The Butley River to the coastal paths to the south.
  • High Broom is positioned just outside the village of Orford, a particularly attractive village set on the banks of the River Ore. The immediate situation of High Broom is rare being set in a such a large plot with wonderful far reaching views yet close to the facilities in the village. Orford benefits from numerous facilities including a sailing club, two public houses, a hotel & restaurant, a bakery and primary school. A much wider range of shopping and educational amenities can be found in the historic market town of Woodbridge set on the banks of the River Deben and also further south in Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk, which also provides a rail service to London's Liverpool Street Station.
