A magnificent Georgian grade-II listed rectory with charming mature gardens.
Situated at the heart of the much sought-after village of Peakirk just seven miles northwest of Peterborough, this substantial Grade-II listed rectory was originally constructed in 1750 and retains its Georgian grandeur due to a wealth of original features, including mullion windows, shutters, intricate cornicing and servants stairs. Internally the home has been thoughtfully renovated to create a contemporary residence for the modern day with elegant high-ceilinged rooms and stylish décor that is sympathetic yet neutral, allowing for a new buyer to add their personal stamp while honouring the character of this unique home. Modern touches include the stylish bath and shower rooms with underfloor heating, a large gymnasium with air-conditioning, a sauna and steam room, CCTV and an alarm system. The detached property stands within extensive and private grounds of about 2.8 acres with beautifully maintained mature gardens and an outdoor tennis court.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors and extends to approximately 7446 sq ft with ample space inside to suit growing families with equally spacious grounds outside for entertaining and big family celebrations.
The ground floor is accessed via a grand and imposing entrance hall leading through to a formal drawing room, sitting room, dining room with wood-burning stove and handsome kitchen with a delightful adjoining conservatory. From here is the ancillary accommodation with its own separate entrance comprising a family room, study, utility room, useful boot room and shower room, sauna and steam room with a spiral staircase leading to a reception room with en suite shower room which has excellent potential to be converted into a bedroom if desired.
On the first floor is the principal suite benefitting from a large dressing room with fitted storage and sleek en suite shower room, two additional doubles with en suite facilities, two further bedrooms, and a contemporary family shower room.
The Old Rectory occupies a generous plot nestled away down a peaceful lane behind striking wrought-iron gates with a sizeable driveway to the front providing ample parking for a number of vehicles. The stunning formal gardens enjoy a favourable southerly aspect comprising a large outdoor tennis court and well-maintained lawns interspersed by specimen trees, immaculate and seasonal flower beds, an idyllic pond and a large vegetable patch with greenhouse enclosed by brick walls. A spacious paved terrace provides the perfect spot for al fresco dining and outdoor entertaining in the warmer months.

A private oasis behind the gates, the former Rectory offers so much both inside and out. Perfect for entertaining, I can imagine children running around the grounds, playing tennis or in the games room, all whilst entertaining guests in the spectacular reception and dining rooms of an evening, with plenty of room for them all to stay.Victoria ShortProperty agent
