Denver Hall going under the hammer with Auction House East Anglia





A historic hall is going under the hammer as people are given a “unique opportunity” to restore it.

Denver Hall, a Grade II-listed period property, is being offered with a guide price of £650,000 - plus fees - through Auction House East Anglia.

Spanning approximately 465 square metres, it contains several spacious rooms across multiple floors - with each space alluding to a bit of storied history.

The extensive wooded grounds feature various ponds and a 16th-century Grade II-listed gatehouse.

Recent refurbishment works, partly funded by Historic England, have restored the gatehouse to its former glory, offering a glimpse into the property's illustrious past.

Constructed circa 1490-1520, Denver Hall’s rich history is steeped in tales of the Ryston Estate, once home to Sir George William Manby, a distinguished figure and close confidant of Lord Nelson.

The stone coat of arms, framed by terracotta pilasters, is believed to represent the Willoughby family.

"This property presents a unique opportunity to create a spectacular living space amid historic surroundings," Mark Upston, area manager for Auction House East Anglia, said.

"Interested parties can contact me to book a viewing to explore this magnificent estate home."

He added that with a Certificate of Lawful Use or Development in hand, the “potential for restoration and expansion is boundless” at the hall in Denver.

An indicative site plan from the vendor's architect offers a glimpse into the property's potential, pending planning permission and Heritage England approval.
