The most expensive home sold in Norfolk in February was Hoveton Old Hall, a seven-bedroom house located on Stone Lane. The large Ashmanhaugh house sold for £1,395,000 which is several thousand pounds less than its original asking price.
The Grade II listed country house dates back to 1567 and has 3.7 acres of land, six reception rooms, five bathrooms and extensive cellars.
Following behind Hoveton Old Hall, the second most expensive home sold in February, according to the latest data from the Land Registry, was a sizeable 1920s church rectory on Wiveton Road in Blakeney which sold for £1,000,000.
The property boasts stunning views of Glaven Valley, six bedrooms, two utility rooms and just over one acre of wooded private grounds.

Property agent, Louis de Soissons of Savills Norwich, who sold Hoveton Old Hall, said: 'Currently there is much more activity in the sale of houses with slightly lower price ranges, particularly those of around £800,000 or £700,000 and under. Anything over £1,000,000 is very price sensitive and the cost just isn't always realistic.'
