A Grade II listed farmhouse in Larling, near Thetford, has come up for sale for £1.1m.

Fen Lane Farm, which is set in 2.5 acres, is believed to date back to the 17th century.

The current owners have added an extension to the original farmhouse to create over 3,000 sq ft of contemporary living space, as well as two separate self-contained annexes, which could become holiday lets.

Selling agents Sowerbys say that great care has been taken to retain the farmhouse's original character while creating flexible accommodation, which is light and airy.
