Lots of luxury homes were snapped up across the county last year.
Using the latest figures from the Land Registry, we've compiled a list of the 10 most expensive properties purchased in 2017.
At the top of the list was Saltmarsh House in Burnham Market, which sold for a whopping £3.1 million.
Set at the top of Herrings Lane, the impressive six-bedroom house takes in panoramic views across the countryside and coast, has an eye-catching square design and has won a number of awards.
Will Lightfoot, Manager of the Burnham Market branch of Sowerby's said: 'Designing and building the property was a long process but the result was a house quite unlike anything else both in its style and its use of materials.
'It was designed to catch the sunshine throughout the day and to ensure that every room has a view; it offers spacious, contemporary living areas without feeling cavernous and it incorporates modern technology throughout.'
The second most expensive property sold was Great Witchingham Hall in Great Witchingham, the former base of Bernard Matthew, which was snapped up for £2,250,000.
