A rare opportunity to acquire a Grade II* Listed residence of architectural and historic interest in the quiet North Norfolk Village of Trunch.

FULL DESCRIPTION A stunning opportunity to own a piece of British History in the quiet village of Trunch. The Old Manor Listed Grade II* as a house of notable historic and architectural importance is offered in excellent external order, but requires a full renovation programme internally to bring the property back, to its former glory. Once named Hall Farm the current owners decided to change the name of the estate and with it complete a list of impressive changes to the roof which was completely removed and a new thatch was fitted by National Master Thatchers 'Broadland Thatchers'. Included within the roof was the replacement of the majority of the roof timbers, and replaced roof timbers in the ground floor ceiling making the structure stable and now suitable for any internal renovation.
You approach The Old Manor via a large shingled driveway and wooden gates open with access onto the courtyard. There are gardens to both front and side aspects mainly laid to lawn and offer a private aspect being enclosed by various barns and original flint walls. Furthermore the property features an attached two bedroom cottage in need of renovation, which could quite easily be converted to an annexe. There is a large stable/workshop and a shed built July 2019 in the garden with both outbuildings being incredibly useful for storage.
Internal accommodation requires a full restoration throughout, and we would advise any changes wishing to be made would need to be discussed with a conservation officer. Currently there is a large kitchen and spacious lounge all in good order and suitable for living.
