    About this property

    • The Old Rectory is believed to be a 1920s house which has an “Edwardian” period feel with well-balanced living areas and high ceilings. Constructed of rendered elevations beneath a clay peg tiled roof with double glazed windows throughout.

      The property which was refurbished by the current owners extends to approximately 4,392 sq ft is available with no upward chain and can be seen in greater detail on the attached floorplan.

      The house is approached through a set of large wooden gates which open on to a wide deep gravelled parking area leading to the garage and front door. The door opens onto a wide hallway with a reception room to the left with conservatory beyond and a further reception room on the right.

      A home cinema area leads through to the kitchen breakfast room. This exceptional space benefits from a dual aspect and has plenty of room for a large dining table and chairs with double doors leading to the rear garden. To the right of the cinema room, a door leads to a set of stairs and an exceptional home office space which could also be used as a playroom or further reception space as required. Beyond, double doors lead to an elliptical swimming pool with a changing/shower room and a separate gym area.

      Upstairs there are five bedrooms including an incredible principal bedroom which has a large en suite bathroom, dressing area and plenty of space for free standing wardrobes. The guest bedroom is also en suite and there is a family bathroom with separate walk-in shower, large Jacuzzi bath and twin sinks.

      Outside the gardens are well proportioned but manageable and laid mainly to lawn.

    Pulling up to the gates of The Old Rectory I had no idea what I was going to find beyond and I certainly didn't expect the house to have an indoor pool, gym and home office.
