Louis de Soissons, head of residential at Savills, said: 'We were delighted to sell Thorpe Old Hall which is one of the most historic houses so close to the city centre.'
Tim Hayward, of Jackson-Stops & Staff, which sold the number two property and also one in Harpley, coming in at number six, said the sales were proof of just how important location was. 'The Malthouse is a very good example of how a premium price can be achieved because of its outstanding location. The secret is not to overprice properties - not to price them out of the market.'
