About this property

  • The Old Hall is a substantial country house which totals in at over 8500sq ft of accommodation to the main house as well as a separate cottage, ideal for either multi-generational living or for buyers looking to generate an income. Offering some of the most spacious family living on the market in Norfolk currently, the property is a view to be rightfully appreciated.

    The property is believed to date back to the 18th century but with several later additions including an overhaul in the mid 20th century to significantly extend the property. This was made easier due to the property not being listed and this benefit makes tailoring the house further to a buyers requirements a more straight forward process subject to any necessary permissions. The main house provides 8 bedrooms as well as two further within the adjoined annexe wing and a further 3 bedrooms to the detached separate cottage and this gives large families or those looking to move in with relatives a wonderful amount of options.

    The ground floor features remarkable reception rooms combining both period features and warming fireplaces and of particular mention is the drawing room which measures an impressive 27'11ft x 22'10ft and makes for an ideal venue to entertain both family and friends at special occasions. Three further large reception rooms including the formal dining room can all be utilised for multi-purposes such as playrooms, gym rooms or cinema rooms depending on buyer preference and the literal heart of the home is the kitchen/breakfast room with view into the attractive rear courtyards.

    The property is approached via a long driveway leading to a parking area and onto a garaging and car port complex within the courtyard. Sitting within gardens and grounds of about 3.3 acres the family lifestyle is further provided outside with a hard surface tennis court and outdoor swimming pool included as well as extensive patio terracing for outdoor cooking and entertaining. The grounds are mainly laid to lawn but with a selection of mature shrubs, beds and specimen trees in place and enhancing the natural privacy.
