This is an exciting opportunity to acquire a substantial period
farmhouse together with a separate detached vacant cottage arranged around a large central courtyard area. There are extensive period former agricultural buildings set around the courtyard offering great scope and potential. One element has been previously converted to provide a separate leisure/studio annexe, with direct access out on to an outdoor heated pool and entertaining area which includes a hard surface tennis court (requiring renovation).

Hall Farm House itself offers well specified period accommodation with three ground floor receptions, plus a lovely garden room and well fitted kitchen breakfast room with utility. There are five bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms to the first floor. This property benefits from separate access and courtyard area and very private partly walled gardens with generous lawns and delightful well stocked borders.

The Granary is a skilfully converted barn of much character and offering a generous sitting room, kitchen and utility on the ground floor and three bedrooms and a bathroom to the upper floor.

The central courtyard area gives access to the previously converted and renovated range of period buildings creating The Annexe and leisure/entertainment space which is currently created as a large games/living area, changing room and utility with shower and separate W.C, bar, seating and entertaining space with a studio area to the upper floor. There is direct access out to a paved courtyard beyond the annexe to an open air swimming pool area and tennis court.

The remainder of the courtyard area has some of the original farm and agricultural buildings including a glorious double height barn nearly 60 ft in length, and additional ranges of period outbuildings offering fantastic potential for further adaptation subject to any necessary consents.

The setting and the gardens of Hall Farm House are quite delightful and in total are approaching an acre or thereabouts. There is considerable scope for improvement and amendment of the current accommodation to suit a purchasers requirements.

This is a substantial conversion of former agricultural buildings to offer a separate residential unit with accommodation on the ground floor, comprising a large sitting room with beamed ceiling and a wide stone fireplace to a raised hearth. Fully fitted kitchen with large utility and rear porch off, separate cloaks and W.C. To the first floor there is a large master bedroom with high vaulted ceiling and two further bedrooms and from the landing a bathroom and W.C.

The Outbuildings
There are extensive period outbuildings set around the courtyard which offer great future potential subject to any necessary consents.

A pre-application enquiry has been submitted by the current owners to Newark and Sherwood District Council. The report concludes that the local authority would have no objection in principal to the residential conversion of the outbuildings at the rear of Hall Farm House on the basis that they are sensitive to the character and appearance of the existing property.
