A pretty 16th century hall house, once used as a Quaker meeting place, has come on to the market in Hethersett.

Former owners of the Grade II listed Myrtle Cottage have found a number of interesting historical artefacts and are offering them, along with papers relating to the history of the house, as part of its sale. It's currently listed with Fine & Country for offers over £750,000.

The property has been extended over the years but still retains an intimate and cosy feel. The current owners have also made several improvements to it, including installing a new kitchen, handcrafted from a felled oak tree from the grounds of Blickling Estate.

The ground-floor family room has an en suite shower room and its own external access and could easily become an additional bedroom.

All upstairs bedrooms are good doubles with vaulted ceilings and the master, which is reached by a second staircase, enjoys plenty of privacy.

Outside, the wraparound garden extends to approximately 0.36 acres. It is home to a surprising diversity of wildlife and birdlife and the current owners say that hedgehogs, bullfinches and a woodpecker are among its regular visitors.
