Impressive Victorian rectory in over 5 acres

About this property

  • Grade II listed Bressingham Lodge is a fine example of an early Victorian rectory standing in impressive grounds of approx 5.5 acres. It was built in 1842, as the rectory for St John the Baptist Church in the South Norfolk village of Bressingham. The
    former rectory was designed by the known Gothic revivalist
    architect Samuel Sanders Teulon. Offering spacious accommodation throughout including five bedrooms and four well-proportioned reception rooms, the property makes an excellent family home. The current owners have sympathetically renovated the house where appropriate, whilst
    maintaining the period details. To the first floor, a feature of
    particular note, is the stunning stained glass window, very much a centrepiece of the Gothic inspired design. Many of the rooms enjoy views out to the delightful gardens.

    Outside
    Bressingham Lodge is situated in extensive grounds of
    approx. 5.5 acres. In addition to the formal lawn, there are
    areas of meadow, orchard and woodland. Mature trees surround the property and provide natural privacy. Approached via a five bar gate and gravel drive leading to a generous parking area including cart sheds and an attractive listed Stable block that offers further scope for conversion should the owner desire. A children's play area has been
    incorporated close to the house and is included within the sale.
    To the back of the house is a courtyard with useful outside
    storage space. There is further vehicular access through a side gate via a private road.
