Is this the most remote house in Norfolk?

If you buy this house in Haddiscoe, for sale for £500,000, don’t forget the milk – it’s a very long way to the nearest shop or even neighbour.
Seven Mile House, The Marshes, Haddiscoe is tucked away down an unadopted track which itself is two miles long and when you get there, you certainly aren’t going to have a problem with noisy neighbours – there aren’t any.
You have nothing and no one for miles around with the nearest other property being a marsh cottage some distance away.
The house can’t be seen from any road and it’s so remote, the agents marketing it are showing it on Google Earth to give you an idea of its isolated, but peaceful, location.
What you do have are beautiful, panoramic views of the surrounding marshes and the river – ideal if you want a bit of peace and quiet but perhaps a little remote for some.
The property is in good structural order, say the agents, but does need a bit of cosmetic work inside and with a number of outbuildings, could make the perfect place to relocate a business if you’re looking for total privacy.
Guy Storrs, from agents William H Brown Select, selling the property, said: “You can’t see it from any road, it’s really fabulous in that it has utter privacy. There’s just nothing near it at all; Haddiscoe, about three miles by car, is the nearest place for a shop and schools.”
The house was bought by its owner about 30 years ago and he and his family lived there but he’s now in his seventies and has moved out.
Inside, the house offers beamed ceilings and some timber framed walls and a cosy sitting room with exposed brickwork and latch doors.
Outside you also have a slightly incongruous sight in the middle of the marshes – an old fashioned red telephone box which the owner had put in the garden.
