A five-bedroom house, along with outbuildings that include a former Norfolk bowls club, has come up for sale for £1.25m.
The property in Ashill comprises the main house, which is a large five-bedroom period property, as well as a two-bedroom annexe, two-bedroom cottage and a range of outbuildings.
Included within these is a former bowls club complete with both indoor and outdoor greens and a large function room. “This is a fantastic building which could be used for a multitude of purposes, and would be of interest to any car enthusiasts needing good-quality heated storage, or possibly an indoor equestrian riding school,” say selling agents Strutt & Parker.
The current owners have lived at the property for 34 years and ran the business, known as Old Hall Leisure Centre for 33 years. But when Covid came along last year, they decided to retire.
The main residential property sits centrally in the grounds, which extend to over six acres. The ground floor features two large reception rooms, accessed off a central entrance hall, and a kitchen, utility room and guest WC at the rear. There are five bedrooms, a bathroom and a large shower room upstairs.
The first floor links to a two-bedroom annexe, which has its own reception room, kitchen and bathroom and is adjacent to the leisure centre's former members’ bar. It also enjoys private access and would be an ideal home for elderly relatives who also enjoy their independence.
There is a courtyard garden at the rear of the home, providing access to the wide range of outbuildings, including the garages and a separate, single-storey cottage. This is found in the property's former snooker hall and offers a great letting opportunity. It has a reception room, two bedrooms, a bathroom and
The former bowls and leisure club can be found towards the north of the property and includes a large steel-framed building housing a 9,472 sq ft indoor bowls green with a club bar. There are also changing rooms, toilet facilities and an office, plus a large entertainment hall converted from the former squash courts.
