Nether Hall is an exceptional Grade II listed family house set in beautiful grounds in a highly sought after location with easy access for stations and good schools. Believed to have been one of the last Suffolk Hall houses built in the early 1500s, the property is of a magnificent honey coloured oak framed construction with rendered and brick elevations under a peg tiled roof. Fine period features include exposed timbers, fireplaces, an internal mullion window, intricately carved doors and some open studwork.
The interior is naturally light and well presented with a pleasing easy-flowing layout which is ideal for family living and entertaining. A full height reception hall gives access to the generous dining room which flows into the drawing room, both of which have impressive fireplaces. A cosy sitting room and study adjoin the farmhouse-style kitchen/breakfast/family room which leads into a wonderful Amdega conservatory with lovely views over the garden towards the river. There is also a utility/boot room and cloakroom as well as a useful ground floor bedroom suite with a flexibility of use. On the first floor, the charming landing gives access to the master bedroom with an ensuite dressing room and bathroom, 3 further double bedrooms and 2 further bathrooms. Nether Hall sits well back in its established grounds ensuring a lovely outlook to all aspects from within.
The established grounds of about 3.15 acres form a special feature. Nether Hall is approached over a gravelled drive leading to a 5-bar gate opening onto a wide parking sweep enclosed by brick walling and traditional outbuildings. These
include a former stable block of traditional construction which provide useful storage with office/studio potential. A 4-bay cartlodge adjoins. The Suffolk barn has full height double doors to the front and rear with a second floor and impressive timbers; currently providing a party barn/storage there is excellent onward scope (stp).
Nether Hall is adorned in climbing roses to the rear and sides with a delightful and well stocked walled gardens to the front elevation. A south facing sun terrace adjoins the conservatory which overlooks the neatly tended lawns which sweep towards the River Box as well as a pond. The river borders the south-western boundary for some 100 metres and offers trout and other fishing, albeit it is currently fenced. A fine variety of trees include willow, oak, beech and fruit trees. Towards the western boundary is a newly refurbished hard tennis court and from here an expanse of lawn leads back to the front of the house providing an ideal area for children to run around or could provide a pony paddock.
Nether Hall is situated in the hamlet of Thorington Street which is set in the undulating countryside of the Dedham Vale between the popular villages of Stoke by Nayland and Higham. The area has been designated as one of outstanding natural beauty and is famous for the works of John Constable. Stoke by Nayland provides an excellent village stores/post office, 2 highly regarded restaurants including The Crown, a school as well as the Stoke by Nayland Country Club with a gym and popular golf course. Colchester and Ipswich are within easy reach for good schools. Daily commuting from Manningtree or Colchester stations with fastest trains to Liverpool Street taking from 48 minutes.
