    About this property

    • THE OLD RECTORY
      The Old Rectory is an attractive and striking unlisted property which occupies a prominent position on the edge of the village within gardens of circa an acre. Dating from 1857, the period house retains the grace and elegant proportions of its era with spacious, symmetrical principal rooms with period fireplaces and cornices, high ceilings and a bright interior lit by large sash windows that offer views of the village, garden and setting, coupled with spacious double bedrooms.

      With a generous reception hallway, three formal reception rooms and six bedrooms over three floors, extending to over 3,600 square feet on the floor plan, all within an acre of gardens, The Old Rectory is a fabulous family home. The former coach house and stables provides garaging and storage, but are thought by the sellers to have potential, subject to consents, for further ancillary accommodation.

      ACCOMMODATION
      The wide entrance hall opens to the bottom of an attractive oak staircase, with access to the three reception rooms, the utility and cloakroom, and a large tiled kitchen. The spacious Drawing and Dining room both boast dual-aspect bay windows with original period fireplaces, whilst the triple-aspect sitting room provides views of the attractive landscaped gardens.

      The first floor comprises an impressive master bedroom with en suite, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom with an additional shower room. On the second floor, two more double bedrooms reside with loft and roof access.

      OUTSIDE
      The landscaped garden stretches around the front and sides of the property, with pear, apple and plum trees among its lawns. A gated driveway provides access to the double stone garage, car port and various outbuildings, which include stables, a workshop and original gig store. An attractive garden room sits on the stone patio, a wonderful summer spot. The property resides in almost an acre of gardens.
