Plans have been submitted to rebuild part of a Grade II listed Norfolk mansion that was damaged by a wartime bomb.
The late-18th century three storey red brick Roydon Hall, on Hall Lane in Roydon, near Diss, which boasts a swimming pool, tennis court, a three-bedroom coach house flat and sits in around 10 acres of land, was one of the top five most expensive houses bought in Norfolk last year, selling for £1.7 million.
Now its owners have submitted plans to South Norfolk Council that would see them rebuild the mansion’s east corner that severely damaged by a Second World War bomb.
The proposals would also see the removal of 1950s structures and the reinstating of the original classical and formal plan form of the hall, whose owners from as early as 1766 were the Frere family. The plans also include the construction of a sleek modern swimming pool.
