A Victorian city building once home to the Colman family has been listed for sale for £2m.
The historic Carrow House, on King Street, was first built in the 1860s for the Colman family, who lived there.
It also once housed Norfolk Museums' collection of costumes and textiles, was later home to Norfolk County Council's social services department and most recently housed Norfolk Coroner's Court, which is due to move to County Hall.
But it has been deemed "surplus" to council requirements, and has been listed for sale for £2m.
In 2016, it was estimated that moving staff to council headquarters would save £430,000 a year.
