As house prices reached a record high recently, what were the top homes sold in Norfolk in 2020?
Unsurprisingly, the majority of the highest prices paid for properties which were not a country estate, farm or business, were located in north Norfolk.
The most expensive home was Flint House, High Street, Thornham which sold privately for £2.28m in August.
But another property in the same location, Tanglewood, High Street, Thornham also ranks in the top of the million pound plus homes sold.
Others include Hill House, Bramerton, an impressive Victorian home with its own castellated tower.

The house, which went on the market in November 2018 for £2.5m has marvellous views over the Yare valley and is situated in a private location.
