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.
