A handsome country house with exposed brick elevations under a part slate and part tiled roof with beautifully light and airy accommodation throughout, arranged over two storeys, radiating from a central reception and staircase hall.
The current owners have undertaken an extensive renovation programme with energy efficiency in mind, which has included re-roofing, re-wiring, upgrading the drainage and central heating systems with the installation of a ground source heat pump and the fitting of bespoke double glazed, hardwood
sash windows and French doors.
The renovation programme included a planning permission to integrate the former dairy within the house via a glazed atrium with exposed brick walling, open plan to the kitchen; providing a
wonderful breakfast room area/family room with French doors opening into the orangery which faces south and west which has two sets of French doors leading outside onto a large terrace.
The former dairy now provides a fantastic study, boot room and cloakroom with shower.
The renovation programme also extended to the outbuildings and grounds including construction of buildings in the courtyard area to house a sauna and gym room. The enclosed Victorian kitchen garden has had the original walls re-built where required. A new driveway has been instated which leads to the east facing front of the house.
Superb fittings and finishes to the renovation include fine plasterwork with pediments above the doorways to the main reception rooms and cornicing, travertine flooring throughout the ground floor, wooden kitchen furniture with central island, granite work surfaces and an electric two oven Aga (Economy 7) and companion module with electric hob. All of the en-suite bathrooms to the 5 bedrooms are well fitted and designed.
The barn situated to the north of the Hall has previously had planning permission to develop into a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom dwelling with its own roadside entrance and separate enclosed gardens and grounds.
Services: Mains water and three-phase electricity. Private drainage to a reed bed filtration system. Ground floor under floor heating from the ground source heat pump. The first floor is heated via a warm air jet system. Electric towel rails and under floor heating in all of the en-suites.

Gardens and Grounds
The attractive gardens and grounds extend to about 3.6 acres. The principal lawns extend from the house to the south and east protected by a variety of impressive mature broad leaf and coniferous trees including monkey puzzle, wellingtonia, oak, lime and cedar specimens.
There is a fantastic terrace outside the orangery which faces south and a formal water feature which can be viewed from the drawing room, library and two of the bedrooms. Sutton Hall also enjoys uninterrupted views to the south east towards Sutton Mill; Britain's tallest windmill built over 200 years ago. There are also areas of light woodland which are planted with spring bulbs.
Lot 2 is a further 16 acres which surrounds the property (coloured pink on the site plan) and is agricultural classified grade I land which is currently laid to grass. The land lends itself for horse grazing or could be turned back to arable use as the fertile soils are suitable for a variety of cropping. In the
north west corner is an heritage orchard planted with traditional Norfolk and Suffolk varieties of apples and some pears. There is a direct roadside vehicular access into Lot 2 off Hall Road to the west of the Hall.
