Traditional period charm in an exceptional position.
The Rectory at Abbess Roding is Grade II listed and dates back to the early 19th century. Understood to have been at one time, a Methodist Manse built circa 1849, before becoming the Abbess Roding Rectory. It is set on a decent sized plot of around 1.4 acres with no near neighbours and benefits from outstanding rural views over surrounding countryside in three directions.
On the ground floor the central entrance hallway gives access to the principle reception rooms all of which retain much original character such as high ceilings, ornate coving, traditional windows and period fire places. The main reception room is dual aspect with doors opening to the South over the rear garden, it features a lovely fire place as well. On the other side of the hall there is a sitting room with an aspect to the front and a family room to the rear. The kitchen sits in the centre of the house and provides a traditional range of wall and base units, integrated appliances and also has a view over the garden. To the rear the breakfast room opens onto the patio to the side of the house and provides the everyday dining space. Finally on the ground floor there is a good-sized utility room and a guest cloakroom.
Moving upstairs, the master bedroom is of a great size and comprises of a walk-through dressing room and en suite shower. The three remaining bedrooms on this level share a family bathroom/WC.
On the outside adjacent to the house and at the end of the driveway is a modern triple garage with up and over doors and a self-contained office to the rear with a view over the farm land.
The house sits on a sizeable plot with the main gardens to the South and additional paddock to the North of the property in total there are around 1.4 acres. The house may offer further potential to extend possibly with the addition of an orangery style kitchen extension to maximise the views over the gardens subject to planning permission.

I really can't find fault with this style of house. It ticks so many boxes for me in terms of good living space, privacy and wonderful views.Justin Godfrey
