FULL DESCRIPTION Hemblington Hall is a stunning country residence listed Grade II as a house of architectural and historic interest with the situation boasting views over rolling fields and beyond. The property offers a fascinating back story with the original part of the home believed to date back to circa 1690, with a later Georgian front facade.
The property was separated as two separate dwellings for many years, and with this has two council tax bands. In the early 1990's the current owners purchased the older 17th century part of the property, and then a few years later had the opportunity to purchase the Georgian facade with was known as Hall Farm. The years that followed involved a full renovation programme to the front Georgian facade to restore the features, fireplaces, and windows, and to marry what was once Hall Farm into the old 17th century property. The work continued and with the Georgian part now completed and the building now as one, the current owners updated the older part of the house which includes updating part of the wiring system, installation of a new shower, and the installation of a stunning 'shaker' style Eric Bates kitchen which includes hand painted units, granite worktops, a double butler sink and a two oven AGA, as well as a restored 'Gradient' cooking range.
Hemblington Hall boasts a unique opportunity to enjoy two separate eras with the front Georgian aspect offering high ceilings, lovely coving, cornicing and large bespoke windows which flood the property with light, whilst continuing through there as a warm cosy feeling with the inglenook fireplaces, original wooden beams, dairy and stunning kitchen with AGA range, with the property featured in Burkes and Savills guide to country houses.
To the outside the formal gardens and grounds extend to 1.6 acres (est) offering a great mix of woodland, laid to lawn gardens, a large terrace perfect for dining and a range of single storey outbuildings and stores. The property is approached via a pair of sculptured timber gates opening to a gravelled drive with parking. To the front there are attractive hedged and walled gardens with lawns and a vegetable patch, with the East side of the property benefiting from a large driveway where a right of way is in place in favour of Hemblington Hall, leading to a large parking area. The current owners have deliberated over building a cart lodge close to the single storey outbuildings for parking with discussion seeming favourable subject to listed building consent. A large part of the formal gardens and grounds have been created by the current owners with great care and attention, with the grounds leading away from the south-east side and offer a large terrace seated area ideal for dining in the summer months. As you walk through the garden there are large beds and shrubberies stocked with traditional plants, which offer beautiful colours and scents during the summer months. Continuing through to a more informal part of the grounds a natural pond, and woodland is featured with plenty of wildlife constantly roaming this landscaped setting.

Solar panels have been installed in the informal part of the garden and generate a good annual income.

Over the driveway to the East are two barns which have detailed planning permission and are in need of complete renovation. They will either be sold separately, or as one with Hemblington Hall; with details of the barns being available through Brown&Co.
