A huge country house dating back to the 16th century has come up for sale in Edgefield near Holt for offers in excess of £1.3m.

The Old Hall is Grade II listed, set in around three acres of gardens and grounds and "of considerable character" according to selling agents Strutt & Parker.

It is mainly constructed of brick and flint and boasts a number of interesting architectural details, including its three-storeyed gabled porch with impressive buttresses and pyramid-shaped finials.

Inside, many of the rooms offer excellent ceiling heights and are of a good size, letting in plenty of light from their many windows and offering lovely views over the gardens and grounds. There are also some fine examples of ovolo moulded door and window cases in the original part of the house.

Other highlights include an open fire in the reception hall, a wood-burning stove in the drawing room and the kitchen/breakfast room, which is particularly lovely and has a four-oven Aga, parquet floor and a walk-in pantry with an adjoining utility room.

Although the property dates back to the 16th century, it also includes some later additions, including those dating from the 19th century and even the potential to further develop it.

There is scope to add a garden room or orangery, subject to planning, and although the property offers lots of lovely living spaces, new owners may still want to improve and modernise it further.

A number of attic rooms, located on the first floor, could also be converted into further living space or perhaps a studio or office.

Outside, The Old Hall is approached by a gravel drive which ends in a private parking and turning area to the side of the house where there is also a bank of open-fronted garages. Again, these offer significant potential; they could be converted into more modern garages, or be converted into an annexe or home office.

The driveway then continues to a private roadway, which the property has a right of way over but is owned by the Stody Estate.
