About this property

  • The Property
    Sarum Hall is an impressive and substantial family home enjoying a peaceful and elevated position, yet within four miles of the centre of Norwich.

    The house, designed and built in 1988 by the notable Norwich architects Lambert Scott & Innes, has well-proportioned accommodation centred on a circular turret room, carefully designed with curved door frames to provide access to the main reception rooms on the ground floor, and to the main bedrooms on the first floor. A particular feature is the striking staircase/entrance hall room and a large garden room with views out over the garden. There are four double bedrooms, including a principal bedroom with dressing room and shower room, and a further bathroom en suite to the guest bedroom and a separate family bathroom.

    The accommodation offers useful rooms associated with family living including a utility, study, ground floor cloakroom and airing cupboards. The house enjoys plenty of natural light throughout, with views to the west towards the Wensum Valley and Ringland Hills beyond. To the rear of the property there is a self-contained single- storey annexe which creates the opportunity for multi-generational living.

    A further advantage is the property is being sold with no onward chain.

    Outside
    Sarum Hall is approached via wrought iron gates leading to a brick weaved driveway and garage. With a further set of gates it allows for an in and out driveway.

    Sitting on a generous plot of about 0.56 acres the grounds are a particular feature of the property and create a wonderful family friendly garden which is perfect for entertaining. The property features a good deal of natural privacy with the boundary featuring several specimen trees as well as a copse being located behind the house. The majority of the garden enjoys a southward aspect.

I love the individuality of the house as you approach and on first entering the stunning hallway sets the scene for this utterly unique home.
