A classic Georgian grade II listed former rectory in gardens and ground in excess of an acre.
The Old Rectory is a fine Grade II listed detached late Georgian village home. It offers handsome period features within well-proportioned accommodation (in excess of 3,900 sq ft) in gardens and ground of about 1.2 acres.
This impressive country home has large rooms with tall ceilings, marble and slate fireplaces, original working shutters and wide sash windows allowing the natural light to flood in. The elegant drawing room has a pleasant dual aspect across the garden plus a substantial marble fireplace with an open fire. The spacious snug has a wood burning stove and the dining room (former kitchen) is home to an impressive Aga. These three very substantial reception rooms all have views of the gardens. The large and impressive family kitchen comes complete with a stylish bespoke hand built kitchen with a range of base, drawer and wall units and large island unit. There is also direct access from the kitchen to the gardens. Additionally to the ground floor is a large and welcoming entrance hall with impressive flagstone floor, W.C, inner hallway with elegant staircase to the first floor, utility room, walk-in pantry and secondary staircase. To the first floor is a master bedroom suite with spacious dressing room and large en suite shower room.
Additionally there are five further double bedrooms, family bathroom complete with separate shower and separate shower room. This impressive former rectory is ideal for families or professionals who value quality living and fine period features.
The property is approached off a long shared driveway which in turn, via gated access, leads into the property where there is a further driveway and large parking/turning area. There is access from the driveway to the side of the house to a garage/coach house suitable for parking further vehicles. The property enjoys extensive established gardens and grounds of in excess of 1.2 acres, which surround the home and comprise lush level lawns, well stocked flower beds, wild areas with views over the neighbouring fields, robust borders and a range of spectacular specimen trees.
The gardens offer privacy and are ideal for entertaining or allowing the children and pets to run free to explore the nooks and crannies.
