Denver Hall goes under the hammer with Auction House East Anglia

By Vaseline May31,2024

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

Denver Hall, a historic Grade II listed building, is being offered with a guide price of £650,000 (plus costs) through Auction House East Anglia.

Covering approximately 465 square meters, it contains several spacious rooms spread over multiple floors, each space referencing a piece of storied history.

The extensive wooded grounds include several ponds and a 16th-century monumental gatehouse.

Recent renovation work, partly funded by Historic England, has restored the gatehouse to its former glory and provides a glimpse into the property’s illustrious past.

Built circa 1490-1520, the rich history of Denver Hall is steeped in stories of the Ryston Estate, once home to Sir George William Manby, a leading 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 offers a unique opportunity to create a spectacular living space in a historic setting,” said Mark Upston, area manager of Auction House East Anglia.

“Interested parties can contact me for a viewing to explore this beautiful estate.”

He added that with a certificate of lawful use or development in hand, the “potential for restoration and expansion is limitless” at the Denver hall.
