Property editor Caroline Culot selects three of the best new properties currently for sale in Norfolk and Suffolk with different agents.

•Old School House, Beetley;

For sale for £475,000-£500,000 with haart on 01362 696977.

Built in approximately 1850, Old School House as its name suggests was originally a school and a house but has since undergone a loving and painstaking full restoration program which has successfully retained all of the Victorian character, whilst transforming it into an incredibly spacious family residence providing over 4,500 sq. feet of accommodation set on a 0.84 acre plot (stms), with two sizeable garages and an internal workshop. Those who seek character details will fall in love with the feel of the home and all of its retained character with exposed stripped oak ceiling trusses, exposed brickwork, Gothic arch windows, stripped solid oak doors and floors throughout.

It is easy to feel impressively overwhelmed by just how much space has been cleverly created within this historic building and it is a pleasure wandering through with a floor plan to appreciate the number and size of the rooms it provides.

Unquestionably this property would make a wonderful country retreat which we believe would ideally would suit a larger family looking to establish long term roots, write their own history and create a lifetime of memories here. It is quite simply that sort of home.

The accommodation would also provide valuable space to those who are looking for a property with the flexibility and space to work from home.
