Crazy properties; great potential, Norfolk & Suffolk

Couple of Southern crazies for you today (and no, I'm not talking trains). 
First the pricey but lovely detached Norfolk manor house, above and below, in the village of Low Common, about seven miles from Wymondham.
There are no internal pix but there is a floorplan (how does that work??) which shows a main house of good-sized living room, dining room, kitchen downstairs, plus three bedrooms and bathroom upstairs.
Then this weird attached bit with three separate entrances to store, washroom and that extraordinary go-nowhere folly:

Then a bunch of big barns - big enough for a second house, and half-an-acre of land.

Lion Cottage is Grade II-listed and, according to the agent's blurb, lots of period stuff but needs work. Pictures of both would have been helpful...
On the market with a guide price of £375k through TW Gaze. Details here and here.
Also on the pricey-but-interesting property scale is the former malt roasting house, below, in the Suffolk village of Long Melford.

Fabulous middle-of-village location and great frontage, but a crazy mix of offices, workshops and industrial sheds. 
In its time, the 1920s building has hosted businesses from malt roasting to building to church organ restoration to dollshouse making. It's being sold with planning permission to turn it into one big house.

The detached building comes with a reasonable-sized parcel of land and parking area.
On the market through Bedfords at £400k. More here and here.
