The house dates back to 1884 - originally built for the village doctor. An imposing double-fronted five bedroom, four reception room end-terraced house of brick under a slate tiled roof.

Castle Acre
Castle Acre is a picturesque village about four miles from the market town of Swaffham. The village is one of Norfolk's best-kept secrets and is well known for its 13th century Priory and castle ruins. Interest centres around the village green where there is a tearoom and a wonderful pub. There is a fine church along with a convenience store/PO, toy shop, hairdressers, bus services and excellent playing field, well-used village hall and brand new school. Castle Acre is the mid point on Peddars Way, the old Roman road, and is a popular stopping point for walkers. The house is adjacent to a private cul-de-sac which leads to the castle ruins.
