A one-bedroom apartment situated in a former Grade II listed farmhouse has come up for sale in the north Norfolk village of Binham, which is home to several other listed buildings and the 11th century Benedictine priory.

Advertised at a guide price of £230,000, the one-bedroom apartment is located on the second floor of Abbey House, formerly known as Abbey Farmhouse, which was constructed in the 16th century.

The original house was thought to be 'L'-shaped but was re-faced in the late 19th century, when a new wing was also added. It was formally listed by Historic England in 1951.

Today, the building is divided up and access to this particular apartment, which is currently on the market with Sowerbys, is through the main reception hall.

The apartment itself is no ordinary space. Its private entrance hall has currently been partitioned off to allow enough space for a single bed, and there is also a good-sized sitting room featuring a dormer window that overlooks the rest of the property's well-kept grounds.
