The main property dates back to the 19th century, with later additions, and is thought to have originally been a pair of clay lump farm cottages.

Now it is in need of full modernisation and remedial repair with the potential to expand. It could even be converted back to its original form as two cottages – although this is subject to planning.

There are also a number of dilapidated outbuildings in the large garden at the rear, which could also be incorporated into future living accommodation.

The auction will begin at 11am on Wednesday, June 15. Contact Auction House East Anglia for more information.
