Property Details

Location This fine Listed house is tucked away back from the street and hidden from view. Tivetshall is a small village around 17 miles south of Norwich with easy access via the A140, and 8 miles or so north of the bustling market town of Diss which has a mainline rail service to London Liverpool Street in around 90 minutes. To the rear are open fields and just a short walk away is The Ram public house and restaurant. For those who enjoy the water, there are the coastal resorts around Southwold and Aldeburgh within 45 minutes or so, or the famous Norfolk Broads within less than 30 minutes.

The Property Mardle Hall is an elegant Grade II Listed house dating from the 17th century and the quality is apparent from the closely studded walls and good quality timbering even within the roof space. Originally a hall house, the outline of former doorways can be seen, and there are other period features too such as the brick floors in part of the ground floor (others may still be covered), wide oak boarded floors upstairs, inglenook fireplaces and period doors.

Whilst the current owners, who have been here 35 years or so, have maintained the house, it is fair to say that in recent years the house has been somewhat neglected and now needs an overall scheme of updating and some general repair to bring it back to its former glory.

Outside The house is set within 0.597ha (1.48ac) which includes garden to the back and a former paddock to the front. This was once the owners pride and joy but has had little done over the last few years creating a blank canvas for a new owner to get their teeth into. There are good 'structural' features such as the rear pond, drainage ditch (this may have been a moat) and various trees.

Outbuildings The buildings to the side are quite new and have been erected to support the brewery business run by the owners. They were built to be able to be converted to a residential use at the time if required but currently they have a commercial planning use. Alternative uses (subject to planning) may be as an annex, or home office business use, domestic storage or a good place to store the classic car collection! Overall the outbuildings provide around 1,200ft² of space.

Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property.

Directions From Diss heading north on the A140 towards Norwich. Go past The Ram Inn, ignore the left turn immediately beside the pub but take the next left (300m) and the house is just over 200m on the right.
