A 17th century farmhouse in Upper Stoke Holy Cross, near Norwich – said to look like the house in the festive film 'The Holiday' – sold today at an online auction.
Tagus Farm, situated in more than 11.5 acres, went under the virtual auction hammer today with Brown&Co and sold for £842,000 - almost £100,000 above its guide price of £725,000-£750,000.
It took just over 14 minutes for the property exceed its reserve, with bids sending the price rocketing in the last few minutes of the auction, which was held online.
The property, which includes a number of outbuildings, as well as a garden room/summer house, paddocks and grazing land, had not come up for sale for many years and has now been sold to a local family.
Peter Hornor, chartered surveyor and auctioneer at Brown & Co, said: “We are delighted with the results of our online sale. This is a wonderful property with so much potential in a lovely location overlooking a valley with stunning views and we have loved showing it to potential purchasers.
