Treasure house at Edgefield, near Holt, sells for guide-busting price

A rural house that auctioneers discovered was stacked with collectables has sold for well above its guide price at a Norwich auction.

The Mount at Edgefield, near Holt, went for �640,000 when sold by Brown and Co at The Assembly House in Norwich - despite the guide price of �485,000-525,000.

The six-bedroom home was packed with antiques and bygones squirrelled away by the couple who lived there. Some of them were still untouched in their auction boxes dating back to 1973: others had not seen the light of day for half a century.

The first batch of contents went under the hammer last week at brown and Co's saleroom in Brigg, Lincolnshire, making �11,700 at auction. Hundreds more lots will be auctioned on later dates.
