Privacy and space are real commodities these days and this fantastic Hall has it in abundance. Sitting in a 1.6 acres parkland setting with an adjoining 6 acres of mature woodland this magnificent detached 7 bed residence is a once in a generation opportunity.
Positioned in the centre of Ormesby St Margaret, the property is approached via a private woodland drive, past secure double gates topped with Lacon falcons which in turn leads you to a smart pea shingle driveway adjacent to a quadruple garage and guest complex.
The main house - parts dating from c1810 - is adorned with castellation features and impressive decorated chimney stacks to the front and has been lovingly restored by the current owners who have since 1997 completely overhauled the property to provide an impressive family home.
