A large country home near Thetford and its entire contents is up for auction.

Croxton House is being presented in a stand-alone auction at Diss Auction Rooms at 10am on February 16.

The property has been described as a "rare" opportunity by auctioneers TW Gaze.

It will be showcased along with the entire contents of the house in over 300 lots.

The lots include furnishings, fine art, silver, jewellery and collectables such as candlesticks, frames, glass bottles, sculptures, and pieces of furniture.

Croxton House was built in the 1970s by Sandra and Bob Emberton, the founders of Thetford metal finishers Dove Anodising.

The couple met through a mutual friend and got married in 1962. They lived in Spain and Ghana before moving to Norfolk for the birth of their first child in 1966.

After being used for decades as a family base, the large country house has now had to be fully vacated and its contents sold.
