Has been in the sellers family since 1959 and was the later focus of the original dairy farm and livestock enterprise centered here in Bradwell. More recently the farm has been extended significantly as an arable holding with the major land blocks to the west in North Suffolk.

The location of Bradwell Hall is rather special with the marshes in the Norfolk Broads National Park area set against a backdrop of Breydon Water a great wild expanse of tidal wetland internationally renowned for its wildlife. In juxtaposition the port of Gt Yarmouth is only a couple of miles away on the North Sea coast and the A12 the principal arterial route to London within 1 mile

The property has three main elements, the Hall, Farm Premises and marshes vis:


Originates from 1731 and is constructed of solid mellow red brick mainly under tiled roofs .Over the succeeding 100years the house has been extended on the western elevation now with a rather beautiful Entrance Hallway and typical late Georgian arrangement with Dining Room and Drawing Room leading symmetrically therefrom. The latter has in turn been extended southwards allowing a flood of light to enter.

Further to the east is the very comfortable Sitting Room with wall panelling and large fireplace with heavy bressumer over. The domestic offices adjoin with study and former Dairy.

On the first floor there is a spacious landing from which the principal bedrooms radiate. The large sash and other windows face west and south giving expansive views over the gardens and allow a high level of natural light to permeate this storey. There is an en-suite bathroom to the main bedroom and further family bathroom.

It is envisaged prospective purchasers may wish to upgrade the kitchen fittings and make more use of the Dairy and the under-utilised Bedroom 5.

In all 391sqm (4,200sqft)

These lie to the south and east of the Hall

The 18th Century very attractive brick and tiled Barn 9.7m x 6.3m with parapet gables is located on the periphery of the Hall gardens, a building quite possibly constructed in tandem with the Hall. No investigations have been made in respect of redevelopment of this structure for alternative uses.

The traditional and modern farm premises lie at the south eastern extremity of the farm and were originally livestock orientated comprising:

Brick and block Former Parlour and Milk Room 8.7m x 8.5m

Brick and asbestos cement roofed Covered Cattle Yard 8.6m x 7.1m

Brick and pantiled Calf House 15.8m x 4.6m

The concrete framed General Purpose Building 37m x 15m was constructed as a covered cattle yard with bull pen extension. Now with 6.2m ridge height, asbestos cement roof covering, roller shutter door and attached blockwork Workshop 6.1m x 4.3m

The various buildings have excellent access with a wide concrete apron linked to the access roadway leading to the marshes to the north.


These form part of the Burgh Castle pumped level which run down to Breydon Water. There is a good spine road access from the Hall farm premises and they formed the ´home meadows´ to the former dairy enterprise.
