*** 16TH CENTURY MANOR HOUSE *** 1.2 ACRES OF GARDENS *** Aldreds are delighted to offer this substantial 9 bedroomed 16th century manor house situated in this very desirable Oulton village location. This outstanding home has been maintained to an excellent standard throughout and offers versatile spacious accommodation including 5 reception rooms and up to 9 bedrooms. There is many in keeping and original features with much historic interest being grade 2 listed. The east wing of the house has been converted to 2 independent dwellings giving the potential for 2 rental incomes on standard tenancies or holiday lettings. Both these areas have individual meters and separate heating systems. They would also lend themselves to be ideal for family members or if 2 families were wishing to live in one property. To the outside of the property there is approximately 1.2 acres of gardens and woodland with a long sweeping driveway leading to a variety of garages and outbuildings. A very rare opportunity to purchase and an early viewing is strongly recommended.
The Manor House is a substantial and impressive Grade 2 listed property set in a very secluded location surrounded by 1.2 acres of gardens and woodland. The property dates to the late 16th century and has been altered considerably with a large late 19th Century addition on the east side of the property. The property is of particular historical interest due to some of its interior rooms especially on the first floor in the southwest and southeast rooms where entered through an early 18th century 2 panelled original door and frame, and the main bedroom has elaborate plastered ceilings dating back to the 1590's. The current owners have maintained the property to an excellent standard with sympathetic modernisations. The east side of the house has also been converted to 2 separate flats/annexes being ideal for rental incomes or holiday lettings. They would also lend themselves to be ideal if 2/3 families were all wishing to live together in one property. All rooms within the main dwelling are very well proportioned with excellent ceiling heights providing a very spacious feel to the accommodation and we draw your attention to the floor plans for an explanation of how the rooms are arranged. The accommodation offers a good decree of flexibility and in particular a feature of the manor house is its delightful, secluded setting yet well placed for all local amenities.
The Manor House is in this superb Oulton Village location having the benefits of being very secluded backing on to open horse fields. However, all local amenities are within easy reach, within walking distance there are major supermarkets and the Broads National Park. Also within a short distance are Camps Heath countryside walks along with 2 railway stations offering direct links to Ipswich and Norwich City Centre. Pakefield and Lowestoft beaches are also accessible from Oulton village with Southwold beach and town centre being just 10.2 miles away.
Outside to the front there is a long sweeping driveway providing ample off-road parking for a variety of vehicles. The driveway goes off in to 2 separate directions so you can park directly outside the Manor House or leading to a variety of garages and outbuildings for secure parking. To both sides and rear of the property there is approximately 1.2 acres of gardens and woodlands which backs and sides on to open land on 3 sides with a full range of mature shrubs and trees. Further to the rear of the garden there could be the opportunity for further development subject to the appropriate planning permissions as there are benefits of a separate side access for vehicles. The current owners have previously spoken to the planning department about building a further substantial detached bungalow and local architects have suggested this could be possible subject to planning permission. Further details of this can be received from the Aldreds office or from the vendors at the point of viewing.
The east side of the property has been divided in to 2 separate dwellings. A 2 bedroomed dwelling on the ground floor and a 3 bedroomed maisonette on the first & second floor. These have been let on standard tenancies in recent times with a return of approximately £16000 - £18,000 a year in income. This income could be increased with the idea of holiday lettings or Airbnb or would lend themselves as accommodation for family members if 2 or 3 families were looking to live in one property. there could also be the opportunity to build a detached property in the west side of the gardens subject to the appropriate planning permission.
Strictly by appointment with Aldreds office where we will arrange for you to meet the vendors at the property where any questions or queries can be answered.
