A Grade I-listed house which boasts a barn used as a popular Norfolk wedding venue is up for sale for a guide price of £2,850,000.
Hales Hall, near Loddon, includes a six bedroom Tudor country house, the 184ft Great Barn – the largest brick-built Tudor barn in England –and around nine acres of moated grounds.
There has been a house on the site in Hales Green for more than 1,000 years and the barn and hall were built in 1478 by Sir James Hobart, the attorney general to Henry VII.
The property was purchased by the previous owners in 1971 and an extensive restoration was carried out. The current owners acquired the property in 2011 and have carried out further significant restoration and refurbishment work. Hales Hall is on the market with Savills and also includes Gate House Cottage and a further two bedroom cottage.
Louis de Soissons, head of residential and a director at Savills, said the property was both historically significant and architecturally important.
