Do you watch period dramas pure to see beautiful English country houses? (guilty) Then you might want to stick around for this blog post. In the valley of the River Nar and surrounded by 79 acres of parkland, woodland and lakes stands Narborough Hall.
Narborough Hall is a Grade II-listed building which its foundation lying in the 16th-century. Around 1770 the country house was altered and enlarged which included the dual-bay brick extensions. In the 19th-century another wing was added, which at that time was used as a service wing but what is now a working kitchen.
The current owners have carefully restored this historic building. The interiors are stripped back to fully appreciate the many historical details like Rococo ceilings and 18th-century fireplaces.
At this time the house is also used for various public functions like a florist studio, weddings have been held at Narborough Hall, the estate included a café which serves dishes with home grown products and the gardens are open to the public.
The stripped back interiors mean that all our focus goes to appreciating the bones of this beautiful country house. A gorgeous Rococo ceilings can be seen in this sitting room and an impressive stone fireplace sits on one wall.
The kitchen feels like stepping into the sun with yellow rose-patterned wallpaper. The kitchen includes a dining table overlooking the garden and a sitting room. All covered in this cheerful and romantic wallpaper.
The entrance hall has its original flagstone flooring and the wall panels have been painted in Farrow & Ball’s “Peignoir”.
The are seven bedrooms upstairs, most of them southfacing. This mean you can enjoy a view of the garden and the surrounding parkland from your bedroom window.
A romantic bathroom with clawfoot bath and the same rose-patterened wallpaper that we also saw in the kitchen. It is rather lovely after all.
A view from the bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own color scheme, often colors picked from the floral wallpaper.
Narborough Hall stands on 79 acres of private land. Much of the garden has been re-wilded over the years and in summertime this garden is a romantic beauty. The roses come into bloom, there are waterlilies in the lake and the “blue garden” has lavender plants and herbs.
There’s also a kitchen garden with vegetable patches and fruit trees.
Did I mention there’s also a swimming pool? Oh yes! The stable courtyard now houses a large open swimming pool which lies in the sunshine most of the day. The old stables houses changing rooms, a working kitchen and a dining room.
Narborough Hall has now been put up for sale at Inigo for £4,500,000
