The house is built of gault brick under a hipped slate roof, and is described in Pevsner’s Buildings of England. It has retained much of its period detail, with fine sash windows and elegantly proportioned rooms, flagstones at the entrance and attractive panelling.

It has six bedrooms, three bathrooms, drawing room, dining room, study, sitting room, a kitchen/breakfast room, conservatory, cellar and four further attic rooms. Outdoors the property also comes with a one bedroom cottage, and another two bedroom cottage is available separately.

Outside to the front is a large expanse of lawned garden bordered by mature shrubs, hedges and some very fine trees. There are shrub and herbaceous beds in the southeast corner, and to the south mixed woodland leads to a lime avenue. To the southwest is a formal rose garden bordered by clipped yew hedging which leads to a heated swimming pool and to the west is an orchard and also a kitchen garden, and a pond surrounded by mature horse chestnut trees.

The stable cottage to the north east of the Hall has been sympathetically converted and has a sitting room and dining room/kitchen, bedroom and a bathroom.

Nearby is the market town of Baccles, which has an excellent range of shopping, banking and transport while Lodden, only a mile away, provides for everyday shopping needs. There are also good state and private schools nearby.
