Fenn Wright are delighted to bring Depden Hall to the open market with a guide price of £6.1m
This beautiful Grade ll Listed Hall is a fully moated property dating from the 17th Century, set in 463 acres of rolling countryside. Available as a whole, the property incorporates arable farmland, mature woodland and Depden village green, including the title ‘Lordship of the Manor of Depden’.
The Hall offers comfortable and spacious family accommodation with six bedrooms on the first floor, two further attic bedrooms on the second floor and a cellar below. This attractive arable farm extends to about 463.20 acres (187.48 ha) and offers seclusion from the centrally located farmstead, consisting of the moated Grade II Listed Hall and a range of buildings.
The majority of the farmland is Grade 2 fully drained boulder clay ideal for growing a wide range of combinable crops, and to the north is the village green. Several woods were strategically planted which now offer Depden Hall an enjoyable shoot, as well as adding to the overall conservation value of the farm. The Lordship of the Manor of Depden is an ancient title that comes with the property, which was once vested with the Marquess of Bristol at Ickworth House, just a few miles from Depden.
The sheltered gardens lie within the moat and are predominantly laid to lawn with part being a grass tennis court with summer house and boat house to one side. With a southerly aspect, there are several well hedged areas which offer private courtyard and rose gardens with mature shrubs, roses and box topiary within brick and paved terraces.
Situated to the south of Bury St Edmunds with far reaching views over the surrounding Suffolk countryside. Nearby Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket offer a good range of facilities, whilst Cambridge (28 miles) offers a wider range of services, including its famed university and educational opportunities. Stansted Airport is about 30 miles away and central London is about 55 miles.
