The high end of the property market remained strong throughout August, with all of the top ten most expensive homes selling for over £600,000 and several being bought for more than £1,000,000.
According to the latest Land Registry figures, Hill House, a six-bedroom detached home in Hassingham, was the most expensive property sold in Norfolk in August.
The luxurious family home first went on the market in March with Jackson-Stops & Staff for a guide price of £1.25m but sold for £1,200,000.
Originally built in 1896 by a local farmer for his daughter, the property was extensively modernised between 1999 and 2002 and is today complete with drawing room, dining room, family room, games room, conservatory, study, utility room, attic room, two self-contained annex barn conversions and 3.4 acres of grounds including landscaped gardens with pond, decking house and children’s play area.
Following on from this, the second most expensive home sold within the month was Falgate, a six-bedroom brick and flint structure marketed by Bedfords, that was purchased for £1,135,000.
Built in Burnham Overy Staithe in 1847, the farmhouse style property today boasts impressive views out towards the coast from its elevated position, as well as four bathrooms, utility room, car-port, bi-fold doors and various reception rooms.
A stunning duplex penthouse apartment in Norwich’s Grade II listed Albion Mill development sold in August for £940,000 making it the third most expensive home sold in the month. Marketed by Savills, the 4,000 sq ft apartment on the river is comprised of three bedroom suites, wrap around balconies, Villeroy & Boch bathrooms, french windows, large open plan kitchen and living spaces, dining area and utility area.
At the other end of the list, the ninth most expensive property was 6 Elliott Close in Holt, a 6-bedroom detached house built in 2011 by local builder Character Homes Ltd.
Situated in a cul-de-sac with just seven other houses, the home offers around 3,200 sq ft and features a study, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, double aspect sitting room, cloak room, en-suite facilities and a private garden.
The final property, a five-bedroom detached house on Warren Road in Holt, called Ravensdale, sold for £690,000.
All of the top ten properties sold for over £600,000 making the figures considerably higher than the ones for July 2016.
The majority of homes on the list were sold within Norwich, with three of the ten being sold in this district, two in North Norfolk, two in South Norfolk, one in Breckland, one in Broadland and one in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.
