A 17th Century townhouse in Halesworth that needs a "complete" revamp has hit the market for just under £600,000.

The Laurels, hidden away off Chediston Street, is a five-bedroom home that dates back to the Victorian era.

It has been owned by the same family since the mid-1960s, but estate agent Clarke & Simpson has put it up for sale with a guide price of £599,500.
