DESCRIPTION Wood Dalling Hall is believed to date back to the late 16th Century and has been occupied as a family house for many years, having been let for the last 5 years. The property is Listed Grade II* as a house of historic interest and its use over the years has included guest house and restaurant but more recently the property has been renovated and improved and offers super family accommodation on three floors. The property is constructed of red brick with steeply pitched plain tiled roofs on an L-shaped plan with the main façade facing East, with three gables with corbels all with decorated terracotta finials. Much of the original character of the property has been retained and the whole will be of great interest to buyers looking to acquire a first class residence with a great deal of charm, but suitable for modern day living. The property benefits from an oil fired central heating system.

For many years, Wood Dalling Hall has been used a family home and equestrian centre with stabling and barn with orangery, utilising the meadows with outdoor arena. The whole will be of great interest to buyers looking to acquire a property with land and buildings in a popular rural location.

LOCATION Situated within striking distance of the market town of Reepham, about 4 miles away, with all its local shopping and transport facilities and some 10 miles from Holt, itself within striking distance of the North Norfolk coast. The city of Norwich is about 17 miles away. Here is an excellent opportunity to live tucked away in a special place approached via an adopted road shared by a number of properties only and with a great deal of privacy.

Wood Dalling is well placed for schools including Beeston Preparatory School on the North Norfolk Coast and Gresham School in Holt, together with Norwich High School for Girls and the Cathedral School in the city of Norwich. Otherwise there is a very good secondary school in Reepham. There is a mainline railway service from Norwich serving London Liverpool Street and Norwich International Airport is within a 30 minute drive.

WOOD DALLING HALL (LOT 1 - 28.72 ACRES)

GROUND FLOOR The property is approached from the road with a drive leading up to the front of the house. The entrance porch leads to the principal rooms, with the drawing room featuring a central fireplace with doors to the library and dining room and access through to the inner hall and cloakroom. There is a study adjoining the dining room which has access to the rear of the property. The kitchen is located to the rear off the dining room, with access to the cellar and store. The kitchen has been designed to provide family space with sitting, eating and cooking area and a secondary staircase leading to a playroom and a door to the back hall and cloakroom where there are boot room and storage facilities.

In particular, the kitchen has been designed and created to a high standard, being divided up with three distinct areas and including a painted kitchen with central island unit with butler sink, display cabinets and everything that you would expect.

The three principal reception rooms work extremely well and the library is quite delightful, with a wood burning stove and plenty of light as well.

FIRST FLOOR The landing which is L-shaped provides access to the first floor bedrooms and in particular the principal bedroom with storage alcove and door to en-suite bathroom with a separate shower cubicle. The twin aspect provides the room with a great deal of light and also features a central fireplace. The views over open farmland are delightful. Otherwise, there are two further bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a dressing room.

SECOND FLOOR The second floor is accessed via a circular staircase to a landing with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, an en-suite shower room and a dressing room.

OUTSIDE The property is approached from the road and a gravelled drive leads up to the front of Wood Dalling Hall, where there is plenty of hard standing for vehicles. The drive leads past the side of the property to the rear drive where there is further hard standing for vehicles. The triple garage is situated at the side of the drive, being constructed of brick with a pitched roof and consisting of three separate garages with up and over doors, concrete floors and electricity connected.

The grounds around the house include the side garden with vegetable area together with the formal rear garden with terrace approached from the utility room and kitchen. This is a delightful private area leading down to a well landscaped lawn with topiary and a number of brick stores. This area is used a great deal in the summer months for family parties, barbecues, etc. From here there is access to the woodland belt and further land to be included with the Hall.

The Orangery 70' x 10'6" (21.33m x 3.20m) approx is located at the side of the property below Wood Dalling Hall and is an important addition, with a wood burner and double doors leading out to the garden area with views of the meadows and with a great deal of privacy. There are a number of attached buildings at the rear approached via a pathway and including an aviary and various stores. The whole is suitable for a number of purposes with lots of potential.

There is a small terrace included with the property at the far side of the drive to the rear of the orangery.

The property is in reasonable condition throughout and has been let for many years under the terms of an assured shorthold tenancy which is still in operation, the current rent achieved being £600 per calendar month.

THE TRADITIONAL BARN (LOT 3 - 1.27 ACRES) Approached from the public highway and then via a shared driveway and located at the side of the Orangery, being constructed of brick with a pitched main roof and having been used in conjunction with equestrian activities for many years but suitable for a number of purposes with a great deal of potential for conversion to residential or otherwise, subject to the necessary planning consent being forthcoming.
