The property enjoys an attractive setting adjoining open farmland with Allington village itself offering a good range of local amenities and facilities.


The Old Rectory is a substantial period former rectory set on the
outskirts of the village in an attractive open position. The property is in need of complete modernisation and refurbishment but offers very generous well proportioned accommodation, which could be upgraded to provide a glorious long term family house in a very attractive setting.

The house stands in lovely formal grounds and gardens of about 1.87 acres or thereabouts and includes a small stable yard and separate coach house.

A separate paddock is available by separate negotiation and additional land may be available to rent.

The main house in brief, offers well proportioned accommodation
comprising a fine reception hall, lovely drawing room with an aspect to the side garden, dining room, separate sitting room, good sized dining kitchen, rear hall with access to cellar, cloaks and W.C, boot room and a separate small reception room/study.

There is a fine staircase to a semi galleried landing with a lovely central roof light over. Six bedrooms to the main property, with an additional wing offering a further three rooms with scope for further renovation. There are two full bathrooms and the layout will allow the creation of separate bedroom suites during the refurbishment works if required.

Sitting in mature gardens, the property is set back from the road with a small stable courtyard and a range of outbuildings including a period coach house and garage.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial period house, sensibly priced to take account of the restoration and renovation works required and in a glorious and very convenient setting.

Ground Floor - fine entrance door with tracery fanlight over, leading to a reception hall. Drawing room with shuttered windows overlooking the side garden, open hearth to a carved chimney piece. Dining room with shuttered windows to the side garden. Sitting room with a chimney piece and open hearth with views across to the garden. Dining kitchen, separate utility with a stone sink and fitted cupboard. Rear hallway with access to cellar. Boiler room with an oil fired boiler providing central
heating and hot water, excellent drying room/laundry room. Boot room with shuttered windows. Further reception/study with sliding doors and access directly to the gardens.

The first floor is approached by an attractive dog-leg split staircase to a semi galleried landing, with a large central roof light over allowing natural light to flood through the landing and hall area. Large fitted cupboard.

Within the principal house there are six good bedrooms plus a spacious family bathroom and W.C. The configuration of the rooms and linkage would allow separate suites to be incorporated within the renovation work if required.

There is a rear hallway which leads to a box room. Second full bathroom with W.C and a rear wing for complete renovation currently offering three separate rooms.

Outside, the property has a mature tree lined frontage to Bottesford Road with a driveway leading through to a courtyard area with an extensive range of outbuildings, including a separate detached coach house/garage, garden store and workshop and further useful brick stores. There is a small L shaped stable courtyard with boxes, tack rooms and storage, again in need of some renovation. There are also two garages.

The gardens and setting of the property are delightful, extending to about 1.87 acres or thereabouts, with a number of mature trees with spectacular roses climbing through, shrubs and separate garden areas with walks cut through.

Note - an adjacent area of paddock extending to some 3.3 acres or thereabouts is available by separate negotiation and is shown on the Ordnance Survey plan.

Further land of up to 60 acres could be available to rent.


The historic village of Allington lies to the west of Grantham off the main Nottingham to Grantham road.

The property is best approached from the A52 taking the turning north signposted Sedgebrook and Allington.

Follow the road round into the countryside and the property will be seen on the right hand side.
