Inside Little Haugh Hall in Norton which at £6,350,000 is Suffolk's most expensive house on the market




One of the biggest goals for young people today is to own their own house.

But even many of the most successful adults couldn't dream of owning a property worth several million pounds.

The most expensive property on the market in Suffolk today is Little Haugh Hall in Norton near Bury St Edmunds and it could be yours for just £6,350,000.

Sitting at the centre of 158 acres of parkland, woodland and farm land, nothing about Little Haugh Hall is little.

The late Georgian manor house, which dates back to the early 18th century, is accessed by a driveway which runs through parkland and over a 17th century bridge.

It is a Grade II listed building, with carved staircases, domed ceiling and ornate fireplaces and plaster ceilings.

However, the house has also been given a modern touch in the last 20 years and now also offers a fully integrated digital audio and communication system.

With seven bedrooms and the same number of bathrooms, it is a far cry from your average family home.

Attached to the master bedroom is a dressing room with extensive fitted wardrobes as well as a bathroom with a mounted spa bath and twin basins.

On the ground floor, off a large entrance hall, there is also a drawing room, library, dining room sitting room, play room, kitchen and breakfast room and a utility room.

The entrance hall also leads to a four-room cellar while a two-room attic can be accessed from the rear landing.

A self-contained 'Cottage Wing' is also located at the northern end of the house which estate agent Strutt & Parker described as 'ideal for a family member' or 'live-in staff'.

The Cottage Wing has its own kitchen and dining room as well as a study and sitting room, with an adjoining conservatory.

On the first floor, there is a master bedroom with an ensuite as well as two other bedrooms and a bathroom.

Another feature which sets Little Haugh apart from other properties on the market is its surrounding land and outbuildings.

The grounds to Little Haugh comprise 60 acres on which there is a folly, lake, daffodil arboretum and fully mature Oak trees.

A walled garden houses well-kept beds of vegetables and fruit, a large greenhouse, potting shed and garden store.

On the south-facing terrace, there is a heated outdoor swimming pool with a hot tub. There is also a nearby pool house, which has a sauna and changing rooms, as well as a Tikki Hut for summer dining.

A tennis court, large treehouse, sunken trampoline pit and grass helipad are also located on the south lawn.

The three-bedroom Lodge Cottage sits by the main gates, while the former stables is located within 75 metres of the hall and has been converted into an events space which can be used for private or corporate events.

And it doesn't stop there. A traditional flint barn has planning permission to be turned into two residential suites, while around 25 acres of conservation land on the fringes of the estate have consent for 10 holiday lodges to be built around a number of lakes.

The estate is on offer as a whole or as five separate lots.
