The elegant, Georgian-fronted country house is set in about 33 acres of land, and offers outstanding views towards the River Stour.

The property is available as a whole, including the hall and granary, barn, paddock adjacent to the barn, ancient woodland, pasture/paddock, further paddock and Christmas tree wood, or can be divided up into separate lots.

Dimbols Hall, which is believed to have been built in the early 19th century, has been completely renovated and extended by the present owners.

An impressive vaulted and galleried reception hall opens into the kitchen/family room, which forms the hub of the house. The room incorporates antique oak units, granite work surfaces, natural stone flooring and a feature brick fireplace with a woodburner.
