Detached farmhouse in private rural position in south-west Norfolk between Watton and Attleborough. Well arranged accommodation on two floors with 5 bedrooms and 3 reception rooms. Farm buildings with potential and land extending to some 5 acres (subject to measured survey).


DESCRIPTION Old Hall Farm comprises a delightful family home being situated in south-west Norfolk in a rural position with a great deal of privacy. The house dates back to the 17th Century or thereabouts with later additions and is centrally situated within its own grounds. It was renovated and extended to a high standard some 12 years ago.

The flexible accommodation is arranged on two floors and includes reception hall, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, sitting room, study/living room, utility room and cloakroom on the ground floor, together with 5 bedrooms and 4 bath/shower rooms on the first floor.

The grounds are a major feature of the property which is approached via a sweeping drive leading through a parkland style setting up to the front of the house with a drive leading round to the rear where there is plenty of hard standing for vehicles.

The gardens surround the house, being mainly laid to lawn with flower borders and a number of specimen trees. There are south facing views of open farmland to the front. Two meadows are included in the sale, together with farm buildings at the side.

The vendors carried out a sympathetic restoration of this house in the early part of the 21st Century, extending the property with a double storey portion at the rear. The majority of the windows have been replaced and the house is now very suitable as a family home with bespoke kitchen and retains a great deal of the original character with exposed beams throughout.

LOCATION A wonderful opportunity to live tucked away in a special place with a great deal of privacy, yet within easy reach of main communication routes.

The property is strategically situated between Watton, Attleborough and Thetford and within striking distance of the city of Norwich. Access to the A11 trunk road is good and following the improvement of this road the driving time to Cambridge and the M11 has been reduced.

DIRECTIONS Proceed out of Norwich on the main A11 trunk road and continue past Wymondham. Take the Attleborough bypass and at the roundabout carry on and turn left after about three quarters of a mile following signs for Shropham. Continue round and under the main road and proceed through Shropham and after about half a mile turn right onto the B1111, passing the village sign for Breckles. After 200 yards turn left into Low Road, continue long the road for about 150 yards and turn right over a cattle grid. The drive leads through a parkland setting up to Old Hall Farm.
