This is a rare opportunity to buy a well-located residential, sporting and amenity farming estate of just over 1,000 acres in South Norfolk.

Formerly part of The Riddlesworth Estate, Lodge Farm, Gasthorpe is for sale with Brown & Co www.brown-co.com

It comes to the market at a good time in the context of demand and maintained land value levels, say the agents, offering a buyer the opportunity of acquiring a seldom encountered mix of arable land in full production, commercial and amenity woodland and pasture, including water meadows and the whole with distinctive sporting and amenity appeal. But will it be bought as a farm, I wonder?

Approached over a long sweeping drive, exclusively and very privately situated close to the Little Ouse River, marking the Norfolk/Suffolk boundary, Lodge Farmhouse is a beautifully set historic home, part dating to over 300 years, which is ready for some modernisation and refurbishment. It offers six bedrooms, three receptions and a kitchen with an old dairy and scullery. The views from the house over the water meadows to the south and east are very special.

Nearby the house stands a significant Norfolk Barn, with associated outbuildings which together offer enormous potential for conversion, subject to planning. At the head of the main farm drive stands Lodge Farm Cottage, a handsome detached house with five bedrooms which has been very well cared for and stands in extensive and well-presented gardens and grounds.

In respect of the farming element, a buyer will have plenty of opportunity to farm in hand or perhaps in the current climate, it might be snapped up for other purposes?
