Substantial Grade II listed farmhouse with adaptable accommodation in sought after village close to Norwich.


Trowse is situated in what is probably one of the closest villages to the city centre of Norwich. The village offers ease of access onto the A47 Norwich southern bypass, linking the city to the major trunk roads south. There are regular bus services in and out of the city and within the village is a primary school, general store, two public houses and restaurant. There are excellent walks around the village and its meadows, woods and green and excellent sporting activities including a sailing club, large Broad and dry ski slope within walking distance. The village is approximately one mile from Norwich.


Old Hall Farm is a substantial Grade II listed farmhouse, circa 1600 with later additions and alterations. The property is of brick and flint construction under a slate roof. The later Victorian additions are under a tiled roof. We understand that the original house was thatched.

A great deal of upgrading and modernisation works were carried out by the previous owners from around 1997, who converted outbuildings into the games room/sitting room with additional bedroom above. The attic was opened up to create two large bedrooms and shower room. The property was re-wired and re-plumbed and bathrooms upgraded as well as a Bryan Turner kitchen installed incorporating a range cooker and four oven Aga.

The principle rooms enjoy good ceiling heights and we draw your attention to the floor plans for a full explanation as to how the flexible accommodation is arranged. There is also potential to create an annexe or work-from-home office if required.

Old Hall Farm is a great entertaining house both inside and out. There is a substantial paved terrace leading out from the kitchen with built-in seating, barbeque and a range of external stores including a ‘beach hut’ style building with electrics and plumbing for external cooking. Leading away from the courtyard is a decked area across water looking out to the meadow with sunken lighting and capturing the evening sunshine.

The front of the property features a second courtyard with artificial grass, paved areas and a contemporary glass fronted pavilion finished in green oak and overlooks the front elevation of the house and a stainless steel water feature with mood lighting.

The property is approached via a shared driveway split between six properties and then through a pair of electrically operated gates onto the private paved parking/turning area on the south/south west side of the house.

There is a garage block comprising garaging for three cars with power doors. The drive serves a side porch which leads into the kitchen and a pathway leading around to the front and formal entrance to the house. There is also an entrance into the games room from the main drive which has full length fold back doors.

Between the house and the garage block is pedestrian access to the decked area and meadow beyond with willow trees marking the boundary. In the far corner of the meadow is a separate enclosed kitchen garden. On the north side of the house is a range of timber stores which are approached via the courtyard leading out from the kitchen/breakfast room. The front courtyard with contemporary pavilion is on the east side.

The gardens and grounds in all extend to about 1.5 acres.

Square Footage: 6,522 sq ft
Acreage: 1.46 Acres


Leave Norwich via Bracondale, and at the County Hall roundabout continue straight ahead into Trowse village. Continue past the shop and then follow the road sharply to the right. After passing the green on the right and two detached houses, take the next right into a gravelled driveway which leads to a pair of electrically operated gates and the entrance to Old Hall Farm. The postcode for the property is NR14 8TG.
