About this property

  • The Old Rectory is wonderfully located in its own secluded grounds. Believed to date back to the Georgian era with Victorian and later additions the house is built from brick under a pitched slate roof. The accommodation is particularly appealing with well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings, sash windows, shutters and several period fireplaces throughout. The accommodation flows from the entrance hall/conservatory which gives access to the five reception rooms and kitchen/breakfast room. The Aga kitchen is fitted with bespoke base and wall mounted units and an island and French doors opening out in to the walled courtyard. Off the kitchen lies the service rooms which include two utilities, a larder, cloakroom and boot room as well as access down to the extensive cellars. The drawing room, sitting room and dining room all boast open fireplaces, sash windows and views across the south facing gardens with the sitting room bay window opening directly on to the terrace, perfect for al fresco entertaining. The first floor is reached by an impressive staircase which leads onto a large landing. The master suite offers south facing garden views and benefits from a large en suite bathroom and dressing room.
    There are a further five bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms (two en suite).

    Outside
    The house is approached through gates and over a drive that culminates in a parking sweep to the side of the detached double garage and carport. The gardens surround the house with a number of mature trees and sweeping lawns with a terrace off the sitting room with parterre box hedging. There is also a kitchen garden with raised beds, a greenhouse and fruit cages, as well as an orchard with apple, damson and plum trees and a summer house. A walled courtyard along the eastern boundary provides a sheltered terrace, a swimming pool which is heated via an air source heat pump, a pool house and a superb well-fitted separate studio/office.

    Services: Mains water, gas, electricity & drainage.
