Eynsford House is approached over a gravelled driveway and is surrounded by its own charming gardens and grounds of nearly 2 acres. It stands close to the centre of the delightful small market town of Reepham which has an excellent range of shops, schools, doctors' surgery and other facilities. The market towns of Aylsham and Holt are both within easy reach and there are excellent schools at Reepham, Holt (Gresham pre prep, prep and public school), Beeston Hall prep school and several in Norwich.

The cathedral city of Norwich is renowned for its excellent shopping and cultural facilities, schools, university and is the business centre for the region. The North Norfolk coast with its long sandy beaches, bird reserves and sailing facilities is within easy driving distance as too are the Norfolk Broads. There are a number of golf courses and other leisure pursuits in the area.

Eynsford House is believed to date from 1848 and was for many years the doctor's house. It forms an elegant and spacious family house with well-proportioned rooms with good ceiling heights and has many period features throughout the property. These include original window shutters, sash windows, fireplaces, cornices and picture rails in the main reception rooms.

The house is approached through the fine columned porch to the entrance hall with double doors leading through to the staircase hall with the elegant staircase with handrail and door down to the cellar. Off the hall is the double drawing room originally 2 rooms with large interconnecting arch, fireplaces at either end, the casement windows make for light and elegant rooms. Across the hall is a sitting room ideal for everyday use whilst the dining room has doors through to a small sun room which leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room - originally 2 rooms now joined together with oil fired Aga and range of units. Leading off is the larder and pantry, whilst next door is the laundry room which also houses the boiler and has the back staircase. On the first floor is a spacious landing and the master bedroom has en suite bathroom and walk-in dressing room. There are 6 further bedrooms - 1 with en suite bathroom and a family bathroom with both bath and shower.

A feature of the property are the extensive range of outbuildings and the wonderful gardens. From the large gravelled parking area in front of the house, a gate leads through to an inner courtyard and the former coach house, stables and tack room now providing garaging and storage. Behind this is a carport and former double garage housing the garden equipment, whilst nearby is an excellent potting shed suitable for over wintering of plants.
