    About this property

    • The Old Rectory is a fine example of Georgian architecture offering a rare combination of character and lateral space.

      The property has been substantially improved by the current owners in their 30 years of living in this wonderful house, resulting in a well planned and beautifully designed family home.

      This charming house has spacious and light filled accommodation with the fine reception rooms benefitting from high ceilings, shutters, sash windows, open fireplaces and unspoilt views of the surrounding gardens.

      On the ground floor the house has a grand drawing room, comfortable and welcoming morning room and not forgetting the impressive dining room. All are equally well proportioned and impressive with the opportunity to adapt the accommodation to modern living with a superb combination of family and formal areas all centred on the impressive hallway.

      The kitchen completes the ground floor accommodation, flows very well and is designed with family living in mind and is further benefited by a useful utility room, scullery and laundry room.

      The bedrooms are set over the first floor providing extensive and flexible accommodation with an impressive principal suite and guest suite and four further beautifully proportioned bedrooms and two family bathrooms.

      OUTSIDE
      The gardens are truly exceptional, wrapping around the property to three sides and have been beautifully designed to provide a number of distinct areas with mature tree, borders, raised beds and a wonderful area of complete privacy with the added benefit of the summer house, which would make an ideal garden office. The owners have had many fine events in the wonderful gardens, which provides fantastic space for entertaining.

      In addition to the house there are a range of outbuildings, including the former stable which has since been converted into an office with large space above. There is a fantastic opportunity to have this as a home office or convert into self contained accommodation, ideal for family and friends to stay, subject to the necessary consents.
