Country houses for sale

Elegant Queen Anne country house described in Pevsner’s Norfolk Volume of the Buildings of England

Burfield Hall boasts delightful gardens and grounds.

A true Norfolk gem has come to the market: the elegant, Grade II-listed, Queen Anne Burfield Hall, near Wymondham, south Norfolk, for sale through Savills with a guide price of £1.95m.

It was built  in about 1730, according to its Historic England listing, and is set in gardens and grounds of some 18.6 acres. Extended in the late 1700s (‘probably 1789’), the hall is described in White’s Directory of Norfolk (1845) as ‘the handsome seat of Miss A. D. Burroughes’.

Burfield Hall was acquired in 1998 by its present owners, who carried out a major refurbishment of the house and gardens, including complete redecoration throughout, the addition of a fine conservatory, the creation of a new parterre garden and the installation of a new custom-built kitchen in 2010.
