A large Victorian home with links to one of Norfolk's "most powerful" families has come up for sale after a beautiful renovation.

Manor Lodge in Hunstanton, which is for sale with Sowerbys for £850,000, was built in 1888 by the Le Strange family, who lived at nearby Hunstanton Hall.

Historic England describe the family, who continued to live at their ancestral seat until after the Second World War, as "one of the most powerful Norfolk families" in the 15th and 16th centuries.

Today, six-bedroom Manor Lodge is situated not far from Old Hunstanton Deer Park, which was part of the original estate, and offers a wonderful mix of period details and contemporary living spaces.

According to Sowerbys, it was purchased by the current owners in 2000, who have since completed an extensive and sympathetic renovation, including replacing the windows with double-glazed sash-style fittings to match the originals.
