A huge period farmhouse set in over an acre has come up for sale in Corpusty, near Holt in north Norfolk, for £1.6m.

Selling agents Sowerbys describe the property, known as Hollyheath Farmhouse, as "the epitome of today's country house". It has five bedrooms, four bathrooms and what is described as "the ultimate lifestyle" kitchen - as well as its own cinema room in the cellar and a 'secret' study.

Although the property dates back to the 1800s, later extensions to the side and rear have since created over 5,000 sq ft of living space. Recent renovations included extensive work to the structure of the house - including the roof - as well as installing new heating and electrics.

Inside, the main reception rooms are set off an impressive entrance hall and include a formal dining room and a separate sitting room, which features a marble fireplace and French doors that lead out and on to an extensive sun terrace.

Towards the centre of the house is the kitchen, which extends to over 770 sq ft and includes timeless Shaker-style cabinets, a butler-style sink and a full range of appliances, as well as a breakfast bar built into a central island and a large dining area.

The property also has a 'secret' study, play room and guest cloakroom as well as a useful utility room and a boot room to the rear.
