Classic Grade II listed Rectory in a highly sought after village with lovely rural views
Overlooking Chenies Cricket Club grounds, the Old Rectory is a
landmark property in the village and is approached through gates and sits well within in its plot with far reaching views to the rear to Sarratt. The house is Grade II listed and is rendered between a slate roof and offers the discerning buyer the opportunity to remodel and refurbish the property. There is a large block of outbuildings that offer scope to create further ancillary accommodation, subject to planning permission.
We believe the property dates back to the early 19th century and has been in the same family for over 60 years and offers bright and light comfortable living space. Features include sliding sash windows and the house retains much character.
The house opens into a lovely reception hall which has views out to the garden and beyond. The principal reception rooms are of good proportions and feature fireplaces and high ceilings. The family room, which is situated off the inner hall, and kitchen have lower ceilings and built-in cupboards.
The drawing room features a fine bay window and a feature fireplace and is a lovely room to sit and relax. The dining room across the hall also connects to the study which has a long picture window overlooking the garden.
The kitchen is another bright room fitted with a range of wall and floor units with a built-in double oven and gas hob, integrated fridge and dishwasher together with space for a central breakfast area. An inner lobby leads to a cosy family room with built-in cupboards and off the hall is also a large walk-in larder, a wine cellar and a generous utility room.
The light landing area with a deep picture window affords views to Sarratt and there are five double bedrooms with the master bedroom having an en suite bathroom plus there is a separate family bathroom. Each bedroom enjoys views to either the Cricket Club to the front or out to Sarratt at the rear.
There is a long brick outbuilding which includes a double garage with remote up and over door, a separate single garage and an arrangement of outbuildings including original stables, tack room, freezer room, other ancillary storage areas with one having a loft area above. The driveway to the front offers parking for several cars.
The gardens are a fine feature and are part walled being mainly laid to lawn enjoying countryside views as far as Sarratt to the rear. A terrace to the rear leads to a glass conservatory a lovely sitting area to enjoy the garden from. There is a fruit and vegetable area and the garden is bound by hedging to the rear. The overall plot is 0.7 acres.
