Property Description

Full description

18 ACRES (STS). A beautifully situated and historic moated country house in an enviable rural setting between Norwich and Diss.

Situated in an exceptional rural setting, Shelton Hall is a beautifully restored historic Grade II listed country house, believed to date back to the 1600s, whilst standing on the site of a former moated manor house.

The accommodation beautifully blends the warmth of the Tudor frame, together with Georgian and early twentieth century wings, whilst the restoration fuses modern nuances which skilfully complement the original characteristics to create a stylish family house.

The living accommodation extends to around 6,000sq-ft, providing adaptable and very useable living space, with the ground floor comprising a large reception hall with wood-burning stove, a beautiful drawing room with four sets of French doors to the south-west terrace and a double aspect dining room and stairs leading up to a cinema room.

To the north is a games room and library, side hall, and to the west is a superb ‘live in’ Aga kitchen/breakfast/living room with wood-burning stove. In addition there is a useful utility/prep kitchen and outside boiler room.

On the first floor is a superb master bedroom suite with vaulted ceiling, modern bathroom and dressing area. There are two further first-floor suites, with two further bedrooms served by the family bathroom - all of these bedrooms offer a stunning outlook, over the grounds. To the second floor are three attic bedrooms.

Shelton Hall is approached from the village lane onto a long driveway leading over the bridge to a large parking area. To the north of the house surrounding an attractive paved courtyard are a small range of outbuildings including a studio, garden store with shower, a wood store and a plant room.

The majority of the grounds for Shelton Hall are laid to lawn and interspersed with a mixture of mainly broad leaf trees including some fine specimens such as ancient Beech, Willow, Yew and Oak. Access via a wooden bridge is the island and as its name suggests is moated and is mainly laid to lawn with some delightful areas of bluebells and spring and summer flowers.

Adjacent to the house on the south western side is a sun terrace. The majority of the remaining grounds and paddocks can be found to the south, north and west of the house. In total, the grounds extend to 20-acres.
