The Hall has a south and western aspect overlooking farmland and grounds of about 5 acres comprising a unique Victorian Folly and former Chapel, a lake with an island and a boat house, a water garden and landscaped grounds.
The Hall was purchased in a dilapidated state and lovingly restored by the current owners between 1996 to 2008, providing a lovely family house with bright, interlinking reception rooms. The hall suffered a fire and is now in need of refurbishment.
The central hall has a wide staircase, galleried landings and lantern; the reception rooms are well proportioned and have high ceilings.
There are seven bedrooms and two bathrooms and potential to return the apartments back into the main house. The rooms overlook the lake and Folly to the south and over farmland to the west.
