A seaside house, home to generations of the same family for at least 100 years, is up for sale.
The property, which requires total renovation and is not connected to mains water, is billed as either a development or renovation project.
The three-bedroom house in Scratby, near Great Yarmouth, is going under the hammer with Auction House East Anglia on February 9.
Auctions manager Robert Hurst said the house likely dated from the 1800s and had been occupied by generations of the same family.
He said it had been rendered and was difficult to value, but a guide price of £375,000 had been set.
Doing it up would be an option for buyers, as would demolishing the house and building a new home in the substantial plot.
The sale particulars also include drawings showing a proposal for eight bungalows on the site, which is a short walk from the beach.

The sale includes a Norfolk flint barn which is not listed.
In common with a dwindling number of Norfolk homes the house has its own private water supply fed from a well and is not connected to the mains.
The details say: "This three bedroom property is set well back from the road and backs onto open farmland.
"It has been in the same ownership for over 100 years and is now to be sold with vacant possession.
"It is in need of complete modernisation and improvement."
The plot is said to offer "significant development potential."
The sale will be live-streamed on February 9 when 53 lots including two Great Yarmouth guest houses will go under the hammer along with Winners public house in South Beach Parade.
Viewing is by appointment only.
