The Land Registry figures for July are consistent with those seen in June, suggesting that the property market in Norfolk continues to pick back up following increases to stamp duty and brexit.

A five bedroom semi-detached barn conversion in Burnham Norton marketed by Jackson-Stops & Staff was the most expensive property sold in the county in July, according to the latest data from the Land Registry.

The impressive Grade II listed home, which dates back to the 19th century, boasts an entrance hall, kitchen/dining room, sitting room, study, utility room, family bathroom, cellar, shower room, private parking, open cart shed and garden with terrace and was snapped up for a sum of £1,255,00.

Following on from this was a four bedroom barn conversion called Orchard Barn in South Creake, which was sold by Sowerbys for £880,000, making it the second most expensive home sold in Norfolk in July.

Dating back to 1720, the Grade II listed barn is complete with four bathrooms, a large open plan kitchen/dining room/family room, cloakroom, study, dressing room, exposed timber beams and enclosed gardens.

The Old Rectory on Flowerpot Lane in Long Stratton, a 15th century gem that has been updated to a high specification, was the third most expensive property, being sold by Allgood & Davey for £725,000.

The seven bedroom home hidden away in the centre of the village has five reception rooms, a hand-built kitchen with an aga, modern bathrooms, a heated swimming pool complex and sits within 1.7 acres of grounds.

At the lower end of the list is Tree Cottage, a five bedroom detached house on Fring Road in Sedgeford, which was sold by Bedfords for £570,000. This property, which is situated along a quiet lane in a designated conservation area in the village, was the ninth most expensive home sold in the county in July.

The final property on the list, 129 Norwich Road in New Costessey, is an eight bedroom detached house which sold for £565,000.

The home, which had previously operated as Costessey Guest House, contains a cloakroom, conservatory, office, dining room, owners lounge, utility room, kitchen/dining room, garage, pool house and several en-suite bathrooms.

The majority of homes in the top ten were sold within South Norfolk, with four being located in this district, three in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, two in North Norfolk and one in Breckland.

The figures for the month are very similar to those of the most expensive homes sold in June, suggesting that the top end of the Norfolk property market continued to pick back up after a slow down in April and May, following increases to stamp duty and the lead up to the EU referendum.
