A huge Georgian house, which is Grade II listed and set in almost two acres of beautiful grounds, has come up for sale in Shropham near Attleborough for £1.5m.

Selling agents Strutt & Parker say that the six-bedroom property, known as Shropham House, has been lovingly restored, and now offers family-sized living spaces extending to over 7,000 sq ft.

It's also kitted out with underfloor heating and includes a large dining space with bi-fold doors that open out on to a courtyard.

Two additional bedrooms can be found in the extended wing, as well as a family bathroom and a comfortable home office, which has been particularly well-placed to enjoy some privacy away from the rest of the house.

Outside, mature gardens and grounds surround Shropham House, which is accessed by a grand entrance and over a gravel carriage driveway.

There is also a detached brick-built barn, which includes a large garage, store room, workshop and multi-purpose room with four rooms above. This offers new owners lots of potential and could even be converted to create further annexed accommodation, subject to planning.
