The Oakland


Nestled within the heart of the north essex countryside, yet close to main travel routes, scenic waterfronts, and the bustling, historic town of Colchester, these homes offer you the best of both worlds. Welcome to Chestnut Row, Great Bromley. A collection of 24 homes in total, 8 of which are available for private sale. All have been carefully planned to offer the best use of space, light and facilities, indoors and out. All the homes in Chestnut Row have been designed with utmost care and attention to detail. The external appearances and materials - pitched roofs, steep gables, timber cladding and smooth, clean white render - complement the architectural styles around Great Bromley and make sure the homes are in keeping with the character of the village. Inside, the living spaces have been planned to cater for all the needs of young and growing families.


You’ll find open-plan rooms perfect for important shared family time and entertaining guests, but also separate living areas so that everyone can find time and space to themselves. To the rear are generously-sized, south-facing gardens, giving you the maximum amount of sunlight throughout the day, as well as beautiful views across the neighbouring open countryside.

Orwell Homes are all about creating comfortable, practical, attractive homes that provide a positive environment for everyone who lives in them. With 50 years’ experience in building high-quality housing, you can trust that every space has been thoughtfully designed to exacting standards.


You’ll be able to enjoy both stunning countryside and the convenience of a thriving town right on your doorstep. Great Bromley is just 7 miles east of Colchester and 5 miles south of the picturesque waterside town of Manningtree, with quick connections to the North Essex coast, Ipswich, Chelmsford and beyond to the M25 and London.

For your daily needs, The Cross Inn to the north of the village hosts a post office and cafe every day until noon and the nearest supermarket is Budgens in Elmstead Market, just five minutes away by car. You’ll also find a wide range of food and household shops and supermarkets less than six miles away in Colchester.


Great Bromley Cricket Club plays fixtures throughout the warmer months. If you love outdoor pursuits, Alton Water reservoir, just over the Suffolk border, with its watersports activities, cycling trails, modern visitor centre, coffee shop and restaurant will be right up your street.


Within a ten-mile radius, you’ll find a wealth of places to visit for all the family, including Colchester Zoo, Castle Museum, Firstsite Gallery, Mercury Theatre, football stadium and famous Roman remains, as well as Jimmy’s Farm, Dedham Treasure Trail and Mistley waterfront.


There’s a great selection of local pubs around Great Bromley. As well as The Cross Inn and the Haywain Pub & Kitchen to the north, follow the road south of the village and you’ll find The Old Court House, The White Rose in Balls Green and The King’s Arms in Frating - all within just five minutes drive. As well as great pub food, you’re never far from a well-regarded restaurant, with the award-winning Mistley Thorn near Manningtree and the highly-rated Milsoms Hotel & Restaurant in Dedham. Alternatively, Colchester hosts a wide variety of eateries and quality restaurants to suit every nationality and taste.
