Illustration of the troubled state of the UK’s prime property market is provided in the form of Morley Old Hall in Norfolk. This Grade I listed manor was marketed for £2.65 million in 2009 and after being sold in 2010, was placed for sale for £3 million in 2012. It did not sell and after being launched to the market again for £2.4 million in June 2015, is now on offer again for £2.25 million ($2.8 million, €2.6 million or درهم10.3 million‎‎).

 

Purchased by a couple described as “irrepressible” by Country Life’s Penny Churchill in 2001, Morley Old Hall was subject to a £1 million renovation by Alison and Richard Warden. It was built in the 16th century, truly is an especially fine example of a moated Elizabethan house and stands in 32 acres of gardens, paddocks, woodland and a long, tree-lined drive.

Currently owned by a country letting specialist firm named Clarenco, the estate’s star feature is the main, three-storey manor house. It includes two grand Tudor reception rooms, a large kitchen, seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. In the grounds and set away from the hall itself are three holiday cottages, various outbuildings and stables.

 

Used as a location in The Only Way is Essex and a butler training school also in recent times, Morley Old Hall is now for sale through agents Strutt & Parker.

  1. You’d have to be stupid to buy this money pit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Demolish it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Build something new and practical!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. As the guy who bought this amazing property in 2001 and spent a small fortune on it my anger is towards the short sighted aspect of charging ruinous stamp duty causing a slump in more expensive housing
