    About this property

    • Enjoying a rural location between the market town of Aylsham, and the Georgian town of Holt, Hall Farm is the unique offering of a house with plenty of lateral living, yet in a countryside setting.

      With over 3300 sq ft of living space, predominantly on the ground floor, Hall Farm has an excellent layout that would suit many lifestyles. Life at the house revolves around the expansive open plan kitchen/living area at the heart of the house, with high ceilings and plenty of glazing to allow in natural light. The four oven Aga and island unit defines the kitchen area, with a generous dining space in the middle of the room, next to a comfortable and relaxing TV area. A spacious study with triple aspect, wood burner and french doors to the terrace, is the sort of room that has the scale to evolve as life does and be used in many different ways. A further sitting room is the formal room of the housel, again with an emphasis on space and complete with a woodburner, and french doors to out to the gardens.

      A wing of bedrooms provides a conventionality to the accommodation. The principal bedroom is tucked away at the end of the wing, a great size at 6.6m x 6.2m , and with en suite bath/shower room. A further two double bedrooms are served by the family bathroom, with a fourth bedroom complete with en suite shower room. The fifth bedroom is the only room on the first floor, and could arguably be considered the principal bedroom, with plenty of storage areas and a well fitted en suite bath/shower room.

      An essential utility room, storage room and WC complete the accommodation list. The entire ground floor enjoys underfloor heating, with conventional radiators to the first floor, and the house is run by two air source heat pumps, whilst there are also roof mounted Solar PV panels provide a quarterly income.

      Gardens and grounds
      Hall Farm is set within almost an acre of grounds, with a good balance between service space and gardens. Panelled electric gates open to a drive that sweeps down to a shingled parking and turning area for many cars, next to the house and to the double garage, workshop and car port. The garaging has electric doors, and an EV charging point.

      Set next to the garaging is the kitchen garden, of raised beds and greenhouse, and providing excellent foundations for self sufficiency. A paved area is to the north of the house, with a large timber pergola. The main terrace is to the south of the house, positioned to enjoy all day sun, and is an expansive area for entertaining, relaxing and dining. From the terrace you enjoy views down the garden, with sweeping lawns stretching around the house from east to west, with trees and shrubs dotted throughout, with wildflower areas, orchard and a delightful summer house providing another fantastic vantage point over the gardens and countryside beyond.
