A Grade II listed farmhouse with six reception rooms and a separate barn has come up for sale in Hethel, near Wymondham, for £800,000.

Corporation Farmhouse dates back to the late 17th century and is described by selling agents William H Brown Select as being "beautifully presented", with five good-sized bedrooms and extensive gardens.

Later additions were made to the property in the 18th and 19th centuries, including roof changes and a gault brick facade, and according to Historic England it achieved listed building status in 1951.
