A traditional Norfolk farmhouse has come up for sale in South Creake, near Fakenham - and it could be your dream renovation project.

Manor Farm is listed for sale for £1.5m and comes with plans to remodel it to create a modern family home, although for a slightly smaller project, it could also be refurbished with its current layout.

The new plans include open-plan living spaces alongside more formal rooms - including a large open-plan kitchen/breakfast room, a sitting room with a feature fireplace and a formal dining room and snug - as well as farmhouse essentials such as a boot room, utility room and pantry.

The proposed plans also offer five en suite bedrooms, including a master bedroom with private dressing room, and one with its own study.

Manor Farm has a grand feel for a farmhouse, with higher-than-average ceilings, and new openings have also been included in the plans to better connect the house to its south-facing gardens, which extend to around 3.4 acres and sweep away to the River Burn and beyond.
