The property, which is in Scarning near Dereham and priced at a guide of £225,000-£250,000, requires some modernisation throughout. It has been in the same family ownership for almost a century.

The cottage could benefit from an extension or further redevelopment and is well situated in a good-sized plot with river frontage. It offers a wealth of character features and exposed beams and has been recently fitted with a new sewage treatment plant.

Auction House East Anglia describes the property as offering “enormous potential” and it would be perfectly suited for a developer or private individual wanting to create a unique family home.

Currently, accommodation comprises a lounge, sitting room, kitchen, pantry and storage barn on the ground floor, with two double bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.
