About this property

  • Old Hall Farm is a Grade II listed country house situated in the popular countryside village of Ringsfield near Beccles. The property offers a superb opportunity to own what feels like a mini estate comprising of a main residence, believed to be built in 1650, a separate three bedroom cottage, substantial outbuildings and lands totalling about 11.5 acres including a fishing lake.

    The main house comprises of six bedrooms spread over both the first and second floors and these are well served via three bathrooms and with the principal suite benefitting from a walk in dressing room. Spacious ground floor accommodation is made up of a characterful sitting room with fireplace, formal dining room excellent for family occasions, a study which is ideal for anyone looking to work from home, snug/family room which could be utilised for a variety of purposes such as a television room or a playroom if needed. The rest of the ground floor makes for a country kitchen/breakfast room, a utility room and cloakroom. Two cellar rooms provide further scope for conversion or good storage space.

    The Cottage allows for either multi-generational living or as the current owners have successfully achieved, a consistent income generating property. Comprising of three bedrooms, a shower room, kitchen, utility and sitting room, the property is well placed for either a relative looking to move in also or as a holiday let/long term rental. The Cottage also benefits from its own enclosed garden space and former dairy outbuilding as well as a summer house which has been insulated and therefore usable as an office space if required.

    Outside
    The property is approached via a lengthy gravel driveway providing off road parking for numerous vehicles as well as garaging and cart bays. Old Hall Farm boasts significant outbuildings totalling over 3000 square feet and so offers a multitude of potential uses as workshops, potentially for classic cars, gym spaces or just exceptional storage.
    The gardens and grounds extend to about 11.5 acres of which a portion of about 7 acres is currently designated as arable and currently let to a local farmer. A fishing lake gives opportunities either for a hobbyist to use themselves or as a potential commercial venture and is well stocked with carp. The more formal gardens around the property are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs and outdoor seating areas in situ as well as patio terracing. The attractive meadow features a wildlife pond and the fruit trees add a blend of character to the gardens as well as typifying a country lifestyle.

What I love about Old Hall Farm is how it feels like a mini estate in its own right with an excellent mix of accommodation and outside space this is an all too rare opportunity to miss.
