Homebuyers will be bowled over by this pretty rectory on the market for £3.5m - as it comes with its own cricket pitch and pavilion.
The owner of the Old Rectory bought land next to his home more than a decade ago and decided to build a full-size pitch and pavilion simply because he was a "enthusiastic sportsman" and it has been hosting about ten matches a year with amateur and touring teams.
The eight-bedroom Grade II listed property in the picturesque hamlet of Norton, near Faversham, Kent, which offers a slice of quintessential English countryside life, is now on the market with Strutt & Parker.
