A substantial Listed former rectory
The Old Rectory dates from the early 18th century with 19th century extensions and is constructed of coursed, squared and dressed limestone beneath a stone slate roof with ashlar. Situated adjacent to the parish church, the property is Grade II listed and retains some charming period features inside and out. There is a useful range of outbuildings which offer enormous scope subject to the relevant consents. The possibilities are endless - party barn, gym, holiday cottages, garaging for car collections and offices or workshops to name but a few.
The property is brought to the market for the first time in 40 years and is now in need of sympathetic modernisation.
There are three excellent reception rooms leading off the entrance hall. The drawing room has a deep bay window and an open fireplace. There is a good sized sitting room lined with bookcases, part-panelled walls and two window seats. The dining room is well-proportioned with a flagstone floor and fitted cupboards with display shelves to a deep alcove. Doors from both the drawing room and dining room lead to an office which in turn leads to a greenhouse.
On the first floor is the principal bedroom suite with dressing room and bathroom. There are two further bedrooms, a shower room, bathroom and separate WC on the first floor. Two more bedrooms and a bathroom are situated on the second floor. In addition there is an integral flat set out over the first and second floors comprising: sitting room, two bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. Accessed off a rear hall is the kitchen, the focal point of which is a large fireplace with wood burning stove. Completing the ground floor is a utility and cloakroom.
The property sits within mature landscaped gardens with well-maintained lawns and specimen trees. There is also an area of woodland and a paddock.
The property will appeal to buyers looking for a substantial house enjoying a rural position yet within comfortable driving distance of Cheltenham and Worcester. The rail and road links are ideal for commuting further afield.
