    About this property

    • The Property
      The Old Rectory is a stunning Victorian country house enjoying uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. The property has been extensively renovated and extended to create a period country house with the benefits of modern living.

      The centrepiece of the property is the spacious kitchen/dining/family room which is ideal for entertaining. Bi-folding doors lead out on to the terrace and offer views across the grounds and over countryside beyond. Cleverly installed recessed lighting both above and under the kitchen units enhance the chic style the owners have implemented. A careful duty to retain period features has been maintained and a particular highlight is the Victorian cast iron oven.

      The ground floor accommodation includes a separate sitting room and useful home office. There are five bedrooms on the first floor including the impressive principal bedroom with adjoining bathroom and dressing room. There are two further sizeable bedrooms with en suites and a Jack and Jill bathroom servicing bedrooms four and five.

      The property also offers the potential for multi-generational living if desired via the self-contained two bedroom apartment and an income stream via the Coach House which is currently run as a two bedroom holiday let.

      Outside
      Situated within private grounds of about 7.87 acres and nestled within delightful South Norfolk countryside.

      The Old Rectory is approached via a long driveway leading to the front of the property where there is ample parking provided by the open fronted garaging and cart lodge. There is a further access via electronic gates which leads past the secondary accommodation and apartment.

      The generous terrace faces south west overlooking the gardens which are well stocked with mature trees and shrubs giving excellent natural privacy without interrupting the views of the surrounding countryside.

    The style and quality that the owners have implemented really is a must see, with the kitchen my own personal highlight and a real standout.

    Local information

    • Location
    • The village of Ashby St Mary is located about eight miles south-east of the Cathedral city of Norwich. The village was recorded in the Doomsday Book and is named after the many ash trees planted in the parish and the Church of St Mary which still serves the villagers. It is well placed for the market town of Loddon, approximately 3½ miles away, which offers a good range of everyday facilities and amenities including a supermarket, doctors' surgery and dentists', as well as schools in both the private and state sector. The neighbouring villages of Thurton, Seething and Bergh Apton offer primary education and the latter village has a well-regarded farm shop.
    • Norwich, the regional centre of East Anglia, is accessed via the A146 and offers thriving retail, cultural and education sectors alongside excellent transport links with a mainline rail service, located about ten miles from the property, to London Liverpool Street and an airport with international destinations via Schiphol. Norwich also offers multiple local events throughout the year, such as live music concerts and art events including the Norfolk and Norwich Festival.
