The Story

HISTORIC HOUSE
The oldest parts of The Old Hall are believed to date back as far as 1570. Over the centuries since then – particularly in the 17th century – the house, which is moated, has been extended and remodelled by previous owner but still presents a plethora of attractive period features.
“These include the main wooden staircase, some beautiful exposed timber beams and inglenook fireplaces in the sitting and drawing rooms: one of these has an open fire while the other has been fitted with a wood-burning stove – there is also an old bread oven in the kitchen,” she says. “The current owner has been careful to maintain the incredible character of the house and to ensure it still has a very historic feel while also making it an extremely comfortable place to live.”

GENEROUS ACCOMMODATION
The main house offers generous accommodation. Visitors enter via a lobby and find the reception rooms include a drawing room, sitting room and family room or study. Upstairs there is a spacious master bedroom, four other bedrooms, a dressing room and two bathrooms.
“There is also an attic, which currently has three rooms but could be arranged to suit the needs of new owners to comprise more bedroom and bathroom space, or perhaps a leisure area. This is a house, which offers very generous family accommodation and certainly plenty of space for guests for anyone who enjoys entertaining.”

EXCEPTIONAL ANNEXE
The adjoining barn contains additional accommodation, which can be brought into the main house if necessary. “The annexe is superb – it has been creatively converted to offer its own sitting room, dining room, kitchen and conservatory, as well as two bedrooms and en-suite bathroom and bathroom,” she says. “This could be enjoyed by new owners in all sorts of ways. It could be perfect for a multi-generational family wishing to be close to each other but within separate living spaces or it could be suitable for guests or staff, or as holiday accommodation.

PERFECT POSITION
More than anything, the current owner has enjoyed the ease of life offered by The Old Hall, says the agent.
“She loves the fact that it is so easy to walk into Mulbarton, which has a lovely village green and is great for dog walking; her children also loved it when they were younger. The village also has a pub, doctor’s surgery and local stores, together with a supermarket,” she says. “The fact it is so close to Norwich and enjoys fantastic access out to Wymondham and A11 makes it ideal for commuting.”

FINE CITY
The city of Norwich is known for its superb shopping areas, sports facilities and transport connections. It has a railway station with mainline trains to London, a coach station and an international airport. People travel from across the region to shop and work in Norwich, and to enjoy its leisure facilities.
“Norwich has some fantastic restaurants, cafés, cinemas and theatres,” she says. “Norfolk is also known for its various attractions, from its beautiful beaches, Broads and countryside, to its charming villages, country pubs and farmer’s markets.”
She adds: “The Old Hall would be a wonderful place from which to enjoy all that Norwich and Norfolk have to offer.”
