Large village house with outbuildings in AONB

I'm a sucker for a nice photo. One well framed and subtly filtered. And this is a very nice bunch of pictures of a very nice - if a tad pricey - property.
This former pub, former butcher's sits in the lovely Norfolk village of Southrepps, about three miles from the coast and Cromer, and within the North Norfolk Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It's an 18th/19th century brick and flint property with a large, six-bedroom house and a run of outbuildings with a separate garage.
The room configuration is a bit odd - you'll want to mash some rooms together, and those outbuildings include the former slaughterhouse (the house includes the former butcher's shop and workroom). As a veggie, I'd want to reclaim those bloody spaces.

There are lots of lovely period details in the house and buildings, with good-sized, light rooms and masses of space overall.
There's a small garden to the front/side of the house (depending on your perspective), and a large yard wrapping around the buildings.

It's location on Chapel Street is nice and central, albeit with the house backing onto the road itself, and the Vernon Arms just across the road.

All in all, a pretty village house with plenty of flexible space, lots of work to do and some issues, including those windows on the road, but masses of potential.
On the market through Savills with a guide price of £345k. Details here and here and PDF here.
