A large period farmhouse with an attached cottage and half an acre of gardens will go under the hammer later this month - and it would make an ideal renovation project.

Auction House East Anglia, selling the property, say that the main house has well-proportioned living accommodation and would make a "delightful" family home, with the potential to create a self-contained two-bed annex or separate dwelling to the rear – for which full planning permission has been granted.

The current property, which has three first-floor bedrooms and three attic rooms, retains a number of charming period features and also includes separate sitting and dining rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room.

The adjoining cottage offers three bedrooms off a first-floor landing, as well as a sitting room, kitchen, study and bathroom.
