Spacious and secluded
Stunning Shadingfield Hall offers a versatile combination of home and business
Shadingfield Hall is a stunning Grade II listed three-storey country house built between 1806-08 by Thomas Charles Scott, who purchased the estate in the late 1700s. The original 18th century Shadingfield Hall was situated directly in front of the current building and was demolished by Thomas soon after completing this beautiful Georgian house.
In 1836, Thomas Scott was succeeded by his son Rev T C Scott who lived at the hall while he was rector of Shadingfield until 1897. The Hall was bought by the Sotterley Estate in 1933 and subdivided into three units, but was then reinstated as a single dwelling in 1987.
Situated on raised ground overlooking arable countryside and wooded areas, the hall is hidden away on the Sotterley Estate, offering seclusion and privacy, yet still within 10 miles of Southwold and the beautiful Heritage Coastline.
Offering equestrian facilities and a successful holiday cottage in the grounds, the property is an interesting and versatile combination of home and business. It retains many original features. The beautiful oval staircase is of particular note and the rooms have classic Georgian proportions with original working fireplaces.
The accommodation comprises a very pretty entrance hall with stone floors and the oval staircase which spirals to the first floor. There is a large kitchen/ dining room with Aga and three receptions rooms with large sash windows. On the first floor there are seven bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Outside the property sits in approximately five acres, with a further eight acres of paddock available to rent by separate negotiation. Within the grounds stands a detached single storey three-bedroom lodge, which is run as a successful holiday cottage, and there is extensive stabling and tack rooms.
The top floor is yet to be developed, left bare after renovation in the 1980s. The space offers enormous potential for someone to create further accommodation or work space. Originally there was a butler’s staircase off the hallway to the top floor and this could possibly be reinstated. There is a wine cellar, a duck pond, a vegetable plot and a small orchard. There is also further development opportunity with one of the outbuildings behind the Lodge. A unique opportunity in the perfect country setting.
