    About this property

    • Old Hall Farmhouse is a charming and attractive Victorian farmhouse, set at the end of a long lime tree lined drive and looking out over its own 11.5 acres of meadows and gardens. Enjoying an entirely private and peaceful setting, the property provides a wonderful lifestyle opportunity for rural living, yet with the convenience of central Norfolk and access to the A47.

      The handsome façade is a welcoming sight, with attractive Portico entrance. The formal rooms are at the front and south facing aspect of the house, with a drawing room and dining room, both fine rooms with fireplaces, original window shutters and tall ceilings. At the heart of the house is the open plan kitchen/ breakfast/sitting room, a brilliant nucleus to family life with plenty of space. At one end is the kitchen area, with Aga and a lovely view over the gardens and space for a large kitchen table, and at the other is the comfortable living area with fitted book shelves and a woodburner. Tucked away next door to this expansive space is a convenient study. To the back of the house is a rear hall for everyday coming and going, a traditional pantry, and a large bootroom/utility essential for country living, with WC. The house also has a cellar.

      An elegant staircase leads to a spacious central landing. The principal bedroom, with original cupboards, enjoys the use of an en suite bathroom, with a further double bedroom at the front of the house with good proportions. A further two double bedrooms and single bedroom complete the accommodation, with family bathroom. The double bedroom at the back of the house has its own staircase down to the ground floor but is also linked through to the first level rooms. Nearly all rooms have charming views out over the gardens and surrounding land.

      Old Hall Farmhouse is approached from the south, over a long lime tree lined driveway, which spurs off initially to a formal and impressive approach to the front of the house with parking and turning area, whilst also continuing to a more informal approach at the back of the house with copious parking space that adjoins the garage.

      The gardens and grounds are one of the defining features of the property. To the east of the house, and open to the south, is a paved area for outside dining and entertaining, flanked by beds of lavender. The expansive lawns then stretch out away from the house, punctuated by trees including plum, damsons, apples and fine walnut trees. The lawns sweep round to the south, with further specimen trees to the front of the house with a copper beech, yew, oak and magnolia. An enclosed garden to the west provides a sheltered space to enjoy, with gravelled area linking the house with the traditional outhouses which have excellent storage and which would be suitable for a variety of uses.

      The majority of the land is to the south of the house, with well managed meadowland bordered by mature mixed hedging which divides the land into 5 distinct fields. Within the fields is a pond, with woodland around, and a copse at the very southern end of the holding. The land could be used in many ways, having previously been grazed, it would make wonderful wild flower meadows, or even space for a football pitch or children to run freely. At the entrance to the meadows is a stable block, with three loose boxes, a tack room and associated storage rooms.

      Behind the house, by the back drive with parking area, is a single garage, and a purpose built block building providing a further garage space, store room and large workshop of about 9m x 6m, an adaptable space with power and plumbing, and triple aspect with plenty of natural light. The space offers great potential for a games room, office or annexe.

    I love the approach to this house, down a long lime tree lined driveway, to the house tucked away at the end. It is the sort of drive that you would expect to have to buy a country estate for.
