This Grade II listed farmhouse in Pulham St Mary, near Diss, would make an ideal renovation project – especially for an owner who wants to make their mark on history.

It dates back to the 17th century and is set in an unspoilt rural position, approached off a small lane. It is currently on the market with Savills at a guide price of £575,000 and, internally, it is very much a blank canvas, requiring a complete programme of restoration and refurbishment.

The property is known as Garlic Farm and is every bit a traditional Norfolk farmstead; its farm buildings remain largely intact and include a magnificent timber frame barn and former dairy, which stills forms part of the property. These offer a lot of opportunity for a potential buyer and could be converted, subject to the necessary planning consents being obtained.

What’s left of the internal accommodation is currently arranged over three floors, with a reception room, dining room, kitchen, utility space, study and cloakroom on the ground floor.

On the first floor, you will find five bedrooms – including an exceptionally spacious master – and a family bathroom. Two further bedrooms can be found upstairs.

Outside, the house is approached from the south, where there is a large hard standing area for parking, as well as access to the barn and numerous outbuildings.

The house itself sits in a large area of garden, which is mainly laid to lawn and surrounded by mature shrubs and trees. There is a line of orchard trees to the east, as well as a large natural pond, and further east you will also find a large meadow. This enjoys a slightly elevated position and, as a result, offers fine views over the neighbouring farmland.
