A Grade II listed cottage has come up for sale in Shotesham All Saints, south Norfolk, for £490,000.

Selling agents Arnolds Keys say that "only by inspection can this delightful period cottage be fully appreciated" - no doubt referring to its sought-after mix of period features and contemporary living space.

The front part of the property retains much of the building's original character, including exposed timbers and brick floors, as well as two double bedrooms which are connected by a walk-through cloakroom.

The rear extension has added a further first-floor bedroom, and created additional space downstairs - including a kitchen, utility room and a ground-floor cloakroom.

Other highlights include the dining hall, which has a vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers, the sitting room, which features a gorgeous period fireplace as well as a brick floor, and the snug, which has an Inglenook fireplace and stairs that lead up to the first-floor bedroom.
