About this property

  • Broke Hall Lodge is an exceptional 19th century house, included in Nikolaus Pevsner's “The Buildings of England” series, set within beautiful grounds, with planning permission to create a fabulous family home.

    Built in circa 1859 by R. M. Phipson – known for St Mary-le-Tower in Ipswich and the restoration of Moot Hall in Aldeburgh – in his characteristic Early-Tudor style. The building abounds with character features and period charm, including mullion windows and octagonal chimneys.

    Our clients have secured approved planning permission to create a spectacular modern wing, on the footprint of an earlier 1980s extension, comprising an incredible, light filled sitting room, with glazed doors out to the garden; a substantial kitchen/breakfast room and principal bedroom suite with an adjoining bathroom, dressing room and balcony. The permission includes the creation of an outdoor swimming pool.

    Presently, Broke Hall Lodge comprises the charming original wing, with high-ceilinged rooms including a delightful, curved dining room (which would become a snug in the proposed plans); a study; kitchen and cloakroom; with three double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor.

    A further wing, built in the 1980s, houses the triple aspect sitting room, with a wood burning stove and French windows out to the garden and veranda; and principal bedroom with dressing area and en suite shower room.

    Broke Hall Lodge has beautiful and secluded south-facing gardens with mature borders and trees.

    Off the sitting room is a veranda with parterre garden beyond, including an historic well.

    Accessed via electric gates, the property has ample parking, a double garage and cart lodge, above which is a self-contained studio flat or home office.

    Broke HallL
    Broke Hall Lodge is set on the edge of the grounds of the Broke Hall Estate and residents have access to the parkland, which leads to the foreshore and sand beaches along the River Orwell.

    Broke Hall was designed in 1792 by James Wyatt, the acclaimed Georgian architect and President of the Royal Academy. The estate was home to the Broke family, whose members include Rear-Admiral Sir Philip and Admiral Sir George Broke, from the Tudor age until the late Victorian period.

    The Grade II* listed house has been divided into exclusive apartments and there is an active community with drinks parties and barbecues.

    Residents can take advantage of beautiful, Repton designed parkland, with a stunning lime tree lined drive and numerous mature trees, including a particularly special Cedar of Lebanon, which was brought to the UK in the 1750s.

    There are stunning dog walks and residents have direct and private access to the foreshore of the River Orwell, including the right to launch dinghies. Along the beach is a pleasant walk to the village of Levington and the popular public house, The Ship.

    Included in the sale is a share of a 16 acre meadow, currently used by a local shepherdess for grazing.

Broke Hall Lodge is an absolutely superb house, set in beautiful grounds on the edge of the magnificent Broke Hall Estate. I love the history of the house and the beautiful Repton designed deer park which you can walk along to the foreshore and beach.
