About this property

  • Rectory Cottage is an attractive family home built to modern standards which retains much of the character of the original listed building. The house is tucked away in the old centre of Collingbourne Ducis opposite the church and accessed via a private lane set back from the road. The house sits in a garden of around one third of an acre. To the front are views of the church opposite, and the outlook to the rear is across open fields.

    Much of the house was completely rebuilt in 2015 after a fire by Dale Building Ltd who are expert listed house builders. Two extensions were added to create four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The house is in immaculate condition.

    The kitchen complete with a Rangemaster professional range cooker and has plenty of storage cupboards with Silestone worktops and integrated appliances. The orangery is the dining area with views over the garden. The separate utility room has plenty of storage cupboards also with a Silestone worktop with space for both a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

    There are two reception rooms on the ground floor, one with an inglenook fireplace, together with a main hall and cloakroom. The study also has an attractive inglenook fireplace. An additional staircase was incorporated in to the extension along with the existing winding cottage staircase which curves behind the main inglenook fireplace. This provides additional access to the first floor.

    The first floor is laid out with four double bedrooms, two en suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. The first floor allows for a very flexible use of the accommodation. The whole of the first floor can be accessed from either staircase, and two of the bedrooms can be linked. The three bathrooms are fitted out to a high standard including a free standing cast iron bath and a walk in shower in the master en suite.

    Outside
    The gated, gravel driveway at the front of the house leads to a beautiful, secluded garden of approximately one third of an acre which wraps around the house. The garden is predominantly lawn with borders, native hedges and a small period outhouse.

    The property also benefits from a cart shed style outbuilding with cedar boarded walls and a slate roof. This provides garaging for two cars, storage, and also incorporates a spacious secure garden store. This store has been fitted with ducts and service connections back to the house which would enable a variety of uses such as a study or a separate office if required.
