As the average UK house price has topped £250,000, what is for sale in Norfolk for that or less?
Despite Covid, average property values reached £250,457 in October, marking a 7.5pc jump compared to a year ago. According to Halifax, it was the strongest annual growth since June 2016.
But what does £250,000 or less buy you? Here are the top lockdown bargains:
The Butts, Kenninghall, near Diss: £250,000
A three-storey townhouse which was built in 2012 with four bedrooms, two reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room and en-suite facilities. Outside there is a garage and courtyard garden.
Cambridge Street, Golden Triangle, Norwich: £240,000 upwards
This two bedroom, hall entrance terraced home with a stylish interior has a lounge, dining room, kitchen and a ground floor bathroom. Outside is a garden.
Royal Naval Hospital, Queen’s Road, Great Yarmouth: £215,000
This Grade II listed two bedroom cottage has a lounge, kitchen and gardens.
These Grade II listed vacant almshouses in need of modernisation were built in 1838 to house the poor. The three cottages each have a lounge with a bedroom, a separate kitchen and bathroom. To the rear are a range of outhouses and the properties share gardens and a parking area.
Leys Cottage, Mere Road, Stow Bedon, near Attleborough: £130,000-£150,000
Formerly a row of three terraced cottages, the property is currently arranged as two semi-detached cottages and is now to be offered as two separate lots. They require modernisation.
Princes Road, Great Yarmouth: £90,000
A four bedroom end terrace in need of some updating with three reception rooms and a utility room, situated close to the seafront.
While a downturn in the housing market because of Covid has been delayed, with the government allowing buying and selling in lockdown, month-on-month price growth has slowed, at 0.3pc compared with 1.5pc in September, the Halifax figures showed.
