Wisteria covers the stone facade of Norfolk’s handsome Narborough Hall – a Grade II listed country mansion surrounded by 79 acres of private parkland in the Valley of the River Nar.
While parts of the East Anglia property date back to the 16th century, it’s a real patchwork of history, extended in both the 18th and 19th century. Its facade features bay and sash windows and a crenellated parapet (because what country home is complete without one).
Interiors are brimming with character following a delicate restoration. Narborough Hall’s owners have peeled back the layers to reveal Rococo ceilings and linenfold panelling. White walls and wooden floorboards provide a soothing, minimalist backdrop to striking 18th-century fireplaces, which take on a starring role in the freshly refurbished interiors.
For sale with Inigo for £4.5m, the seven-bedroom Norfolk property is a private home, though also operates as wedding venue and events space, with several outbuildings. These include a barn with a swimming pool and two separate annexes, floristry studio and office spaces.
The grounds include ancient woodland, landscaped Romantic gardens and lakes that are open to the public for tours and have featured in the likes of Country Living, House and Garden etc. The owners run a public cafe that serves food made from fresh produce grown in the mansion’s gardens, while the village cricket pitch is also located on the grounds, and has served the community for over 150 years.
