Full description

Detached Georgian house in secluded village location with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms, and kitchen/breakfast room. Set in 5.3 acres s.t.s, it combines country-style living with easy access to excellent local amenities.
The Old Hall is situated in a secluded location in the middle of the much sought after village of Brooke. It is well maintained, with five bedrooms, three bathrooms, three reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, grounds of 5.3 acres s.t.s., walled vegetable garden, paddocks, fuelwood copse, stabling, triple garage, workshops, outbuildings and ample parking. Parts of The Old Hall are believed to date from the 18th Century and the property provides a number of period features including a large inglenook fireplace in the dining room and leaded lights in much of the older part of the house. A light and airy property, The Old Hall offers well proportioned family accommodation. The property is approached through wrought-iron gates and a gravelled drive. The front garden has established mixed borders, a range of mature shrubs and trees, lawns, a summerhouse, and a large stone terrace with a well-established wisteria. There is a cottage garden to the rear with a pond feature, rose trellises, and a sitting area. Outbuidings adjoining the rear of the house provide storage for a freezer, garden equipment, bicycles, oil storage tanks, etc. A walled kitchen garden is laid out in a bed system for good and easy management; it is currently used mainly for vegetables but would lend itself equally well to more perennial crops such as fruit trees. Adjacent to this is a period greenhouse with power and water supplies and an automated watering system. The Passmores stable block has two loose boxes and a tack room, and adjoins the workshops (with inspection pit), garaging for three cars, and carport. There are 3-4 acres of grazing paddocks and additional areas planted with mainly indigenous trees, including a fuelwood copse; this area is bordered by mature traditional hedging. (A range of gardening and grass-cutting equipment could be available by arrangement.) Brooke village is well served with shops, post office, church and chapels, two public houses, garage, primary school and pre-school, and a wide range of leisure and sporting activities; all these are within walking distance. There are hourly bus services to Norwich and Bungay.
