An attractive listed former Rectory offering fabulous accommodation within delightful south facing gardens, from which there are spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.
The Old Rectory, Folkingham is a most attractive Grade II listed home. Although built in 1842, the house is Georgian in style with elegant and well-proportioned rooms, so typical of the period. Much architectural detail remains including sash windows, high ceilings and fireplaces, cornice work, and a particularly fine main staircase. The house is situated in well-tended gardens with fruit and vegetable garden and former coach house approached by a gated, gravel driveway.
A substantial and attractive stone property under a slate roof, The Old Rectory offers spacious accommodation over three floors comprising two formal reception rooms, kitchen/dining room and study with six bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The front door opens to an Amtico floored entrance hall which passes a study, sitting room and cloakroom leading on to the drawing room and kitchen/dining room. The kitchen units are hand made with Miele appliances, induction hob and underfloor heating which leads to a family dining space. The dining area has French doors which open onto a gravelled courtyard leading to the coach house and gardens. The laundry and utility room also lead off the dining area. The drawing room has a large bay window overlooking the south facing garden with open fireplace.
The staircase ascends to the first floor which comprises three double bedrooms, family bathroom with marble vanity unit and separate cloakroom. The second floor features two further bedrooms and the principal suite with spacious Jack and Jill bathroom offering far reaching views of the Church and village.
The house has formal gardens laid to lawn with attractive vintage roses, shingled patio for outside dining, vegetable and fruit garden. The former coach house is used for garaging, whilst the boiler room and potting shed are attached to the main house in two brick built outbuildings.

A fine example of an early Victorian Rectory with spectacular views in an enviable position within the picturesque village of Folkingham. I think this is a charming family home with splendid period features, finished to an exacting standard.Nina Armstrong
