A Grade II listed property with a wealth of period features is up for sale in Shotesham All Saints, near Norwich, for £850,000. 

Old Cottage, which was formerly two properties, has been sympathetically renovated to retain original features such as inglenook fireplaces, exposed timbers and staircases, and floors and doors. 

Selling agent Durrants said: “Believed to date from the 16th century, this beautiful Grade II Listed family home retains enormous character blending modern convenience with historical detail.” 

On the ground floor of the property, there’s an entrance hall with pamment flooring and a fireplace.

Doors from the hall and kitchen lead to a rear hallway, which gives access to a shower room and the rear garden. 

There are two reception rooms to the right of the hallway, which are divided by large inglenook fireplaces with wood-burning stoves. Both rooms have period features such as exposed timbers and a former bread oven.

Outside, Old Cottage is tucked away from the road behind two other cottages. A gate opens to a gravel pathway, which leads to the entrance of the cottage, while a gravel driveway leads to a parking area.
