Tasburgh, Norwich, Norfolk, NR15

££3,500,000 Guide

15 Bedroom Manor House For Sale

"Tasburgh Hall is a mansion of red brick in the late Jacobean style and stands in well-timbered grounds, with formal topiary gardens, orchard and lake".

Faden's map of 1797 shows a dwelling called "Tasburgh Lodge " on this site and it is this 17th century dwelling that incepted the story of Tasburgh Hall.

The earliest known occupants of Tasburgh Lodge were the Beevor Family, descended from Thomas Beevor of Peninstone. The property was sold around 1815 to General William Gwyn. Whites Directory of Norfolk 1836, stated that William Gwyn Esquire owned a pleasant seat called Tasburgh lodge.

Around 1880 the Tasburgh Lodge Estate was purchased by Edward Johnson, son of John Johnson of St Osyths Priory. The Hall then disappears from the county directories between 1885 and 1890 as the lodge was being replaced by the hall on the instructions of Philip Berney Ficklin, a collector of antiquities and philanthropist.

He made some substantial additions and renovations to the property including a gatehouse and entertaining room where private dance balls where held. His coat of arms is evident within the property and on the stone memorial in the garden, commemorating the findings of skeletal remains and pottery.

From the 1900s the Hall disappears from the electoral registers. The Hall was requisitioned early in the Second World War when it became the head quarters of an army search light unit.

Later in the war, the army vacated and it was used to house and educate evacuees. Subsequently the Hall became a Buddhist Centre. Ownership then passed to four families, who shared the house and resided in it as separate dwellings. It was from here that the current owners took over Tasburgh Hall in 2007, undertaking a 15 year project bringing the house back to a single home and returning it to its former glory.

Over the last fifteen years, the house has been renovated to exacting detail, incorporating elaborate plaster mouldings, gilded radiators, oak and stone flooring , branded bathroom fittings , Clive Christian kitchen, Neville Johnson study, six wood burners, under floor heating and much more.

As for the gardens, these have been enhanced with the planting of specimen trees, topiary gardens, formation of a stocked lake , boundary fencing, addition of two Hartley botanic greenhouses and a cart lodge.

"I still remember the first time I stood at the gates of Tasburgh Hall, mesmerised by the grandeur of the house watched over by its gargoyles, gently mellowed by the softness of its beauty"

As one sweeps through the gates and along the gravel driveway, you are greeted by the ornately carved front door into the welcoming hallway profusely panelled with deep moulded plaster cornice above and the warmth of a flickering wood burner.

Tasburgh Hall has 15 bedrooms including a principal bedroom suite comprising two dressing rooms and an en-suite bathroom.

The second floor of the property is accessed by two separate staircases, providing the potential for compartmental living and working.

The West Wing presents itself in a more contemporary style and is currently used as a place for leisure and guest accommodation.

There is a two bedroom gatehouse serviced by one of the entrances to the estate.

The Hall sits in 25 acres (sts) of formal Topiary gardens, woodland, orchard, pasture land and vegetable garden serviced by two Hartley Botanic greenhouses. Solar panels provide a substantial amount of energy to the Hall.
