A 16th century house in one of Norwich’s oldest streets topped the list of the most expensive sold in the county in August.
Number 36, Elm Hill, which first went on the market in August 2018 for £900,000 and then transferred to another agent in May 2019, sold for £650,000. The Grade II star listed house had not been up for sale before that for a quarter of a century.
Situated in one of the biggest tourist attractions of Norwich, it is one of the remaining residential properties in Elm Hill. It has four bedrooms, is timber framed with 18th century additions, a cellar and has a spectacular lateral 31-foot double reception which fronts the property and forms part of the flying freehold over the carriage arch below. Outside it has a courtyard garden at the rear.
August, typically a slow month for sales because of the summer holidays, saw buoyant activity following lockdown. No home listed in the Land Registry price paid data sold for more than £650,000 however this data is not comprehensive. It does not include homes sold as part of an estate such as a commercial farm, for example.
