Description

The Old Rectory is an impressive Grade II listed Victorian country house occupying a prominent position on the edge of the picturesque and popular market town of Reepham facing the church. In spite of being within a short walk of the most attractive market square, the house has a significant area of land behind with extensive parklike gardens which in turn lead into woodland. The house has been in the ownership of the same family for 50 years and now requires updating and refurbishment. The house retains much period detail with large and well proportioned rooms typical of the period, shuttered sash windows, panelled doors and a fine principal staircase which is top lit. The extensive gardens and grounds contain some magnificent and mature trees.

There is an extensive range of traditional outbuildings offering excellent potential for further development.
