About this property

  • The Property
    Garboldisham Hall is a most impressive country house built in 2008 on the site of the former hall. Offering over 5800sq ft of
    living space in the main house, the flexible accommodation comprises five reception rooms and up to seven bedrooms with scope to utilise the space as required. The main reception
    rooms enjoy dual aspects allowing plenty of natural light and high ceilings to further the grand proportions. The Kitchen has been well designed with useful island, built in appliances and ample cupboard space. Of particular note is the large utility room and store room to compliment the existing kitchen space.
    We feel bedroom seven could serve as an excellent games
    room or home gym located on the top floor if desired. Balconies to the front and rear off the first floor landing provide an excellent vantage point to survey the stunning grounds.

    Garboldisham Hall sits within a tranquil parkland style setting
    of about 12.4 acres. Reached via large double iron gates, a
    sweeping gravel driveway leads up to the house. The surrounding grounds feature many varieties of tree including Oak, Chestnut, London Plane and Redwood as well as an attractive walled garden, dovecote area, woodland and open lawned spaces. Ample off road parking is provided via the
    large driveway and garage with spaces for four vehicles as
    well as a useful loft storage room above. A further double
    garage is situated within the grounds to provide storage for
    garden machinery. There is an old workshop divided into two
    rooms and access to the original cellars of the former
    hall below a self-contained one bedroom detached annexe which is requiring modernisation. The setting provides a wonderful sense of space and privacy and must be
    viewed to be appreciated.

The grounds are some of the most beautiful I have seen and offer outstanding privacy.
