A six-bed home has come up for sale in Guestwick, near Dereham, for £1.3m - and it has a few surprising features.

Selling agents Minors & Brady describe the property, known as The Old Rectory, as an “exceptional find”, boasting a “one of a kind” mix of period features and contemporary interiors, two successful holiday lets and a built-in barbecue area within its impressive two-acre grounds – not to mention the unusual feature found in the kitchen. 

The ground floor of the main house includes an entrance hall, study and dining room, which is currently used as a gym, as well as an impressive lounge boasting high-vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and sandstone flooring complete with underfloor heating.

Other areas of interest in the space include the feature fireplace, which has an inset wood burner, six arch feature windows and triple aspect sliding doors which lead outside, to the seating and entertainment area. 

The real heart of the home, however, is the kitchen, which boasts an unforgettable feature in the form of a 7.5m well, which is thought to be part of the original rectory and is covered with 4.4mm toughened glass and spotlighting to create a unique viewing deck.

The ground-floor also has a utility space and a snug.
