DESCRIPTION The Old Monastery comprises an attached property constructed of brick and timber with pitched main roof and is Listed Grade II as a property of architectural and historic interest. The house dates back to the early 18th Century and is one of the older houses in Reepham with a great deal of privacy, character and charm. The accommodation is well arranged on three floors with 5/6 bedrooms and suitable reception rooms but the important thing is that it has an open plan feel with the kitchen area linking in well with the more recently built conservatory. The vendors have maintained and improved the property over the last 20 years and the accommodation is flexible as well.  

LOCATION The property is situated on the edge of Reepham on The Moor, itself one of the prime residential areas in this part of the county and within walking distance of local shopping and transport facilities. Reepham includes a range of services and amenities, including public house, restaurants, well known local secondary school, doctor's surgery, etc. Access to Norwich is good and there is easy access across to Holt and North Norfolk is within striking distance as well. Here is an excellent opportunity to live within one of the prime residential areas but with a great deal of privacy. 

DIRECTIONS Proceed out of Norwich on the Reepham Road and continue until reaching Reepham. Bear round to the right, continue along the road until you reach The Moor and the property will be seen on the left hand side.
