Roughton Hall is a substantial Victorian country house that has been completely restored, modernised and extended by the current owners. The house is not listed and has been renovated from top to bottom to an extremely high standard. It has had a new roof, chimneys, windows, a full rewire and re-plumb to list some of the more significant things.
The house has excellent ceiling heights throughout, and the owners have managed to retain a number of period features, such as the coving, and the charming Victorian tiled floor in the entrance hall. Of particular note is the superb kitchen/breakfast room which has a high specification kitchen, with all modern appliances, and direct access via French doors to the large entertaining terrace. There is a wood burning stove in the drawing room and the sitting room and due to the large new windows, which don’t have glazing bars, all of the rooms are remarkably light.
The accommodation at Roughton Hall is flexible, with a rear staircase giving access to an impressive bedroom suite and the substantial home office which sits above the double garage. This could be used as a self-contained flat/annexe if required. Via the main staircase, there are four bedrooms on the first floor all of which have delightful views over the gardens and grounds, and on the second floor is the principal bedroom suite with bedroom, sitting area, walk-in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom.
Roughton Hall sits in an elevated position and is approached via a newly laid gravel driveway ending in a parking and turning area at the front and side of the house also giving access to the double garage. The driveway continues through the property up to the outbuildings. The gardens and grounds are mainly laid to lawn, interspersed with a mixture of broad leaf and coniferous trees, including some fine specimens. The current owners have planted an orchard which has taken extremely well and has a mixture of apple, pear and plum trees. Roughton Hall would be suitable as an equestrian property with some of the grassed areas ideal as paddocks. Adjacent to the house is a large entertaining terrace which also has a bar.
Roughton Hall is located in north Norfolk, on the outskirts of the sprawling village of Roughton which has a shop/garage, renowned fish and chip shop, public house and farm shop nearby. West Runton is about 3.5 miles, which contains the popular Beeston Hall Prep School and Holt which has a comprehensive range of amenities is about 8 miles and contains Greshams School. The north Norfolk coast is about 3.5 miles away and the charming seaside towns of Cromer and Sheringham both have excellent golf courses and a full range of amenities and railway stations as well as sandy beaches at low tide.
