An attractive one bedroom first floor apartment forming part of the impressive and prestigious Grade II Listed 18th Century Orton Hall set in around five acres of lawned grounds and woodland on the edge of the picturesque village of Orton.

This attractive one bedroom apartment is situated at the front of the first floor of the very fine Grade II Listed Orton Hall. The Hall was originally built by a Dr Burn in the late 18th Century but was considerably altered and enlarged between 1898 and 1900 by Harvey Goodwin. In more recent years Orton Hall has been developed into apartments.
