An imposing Grade11 Listed Manor House, 2 miles from Downham Market. Lovingly restored family house. Lake, Gardens, Folly, Coachman's Cottage, 3 apartments.
Also suitable for alternative uses such as a wedding venue or a boutique hotel, subject to planning.
A house has existed on the site since 1040 and it once formed part of a much larger sporting estate. 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 interior design comprises rich and vibrant colour themes combining a mixture of English, French and Oriental tastes and influences.
The central hall, with its wide staircase, galleried landings and lantern; the well proportioned and high ceilinged reception rooms with their open fire places, are ideal for entertaining.
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.
The north wing was surplus to the familys requirements and
was converted into 3 self-contained flats, which are currently let on assured shorthold tenancies, providing an income of £20,160 pa. Access is currently gained through electric gates.
A Coachmans Cottage is currently being refurbished as a
two bedroom cottage and would provide a further source of
income of say £10,000 pa.
An adjacent former Game Larder has been converted into an office or gym. The gross internal area of the apartments and Coachmans Cottage is about 4,114 sq2.
The Hall offers a warm family home which can be maintained
with the income from the additional properties, and would
also make a lovely boutique hotel, religious retreat or wedding venue.
