An outstanding Grade II listed Georgian rectory built in 1834 for the Reverend A Farwell and extended in later in the 19th centuary. The property offers a wealth of original features including fireplaces, cornicing, sash windows and all set in beautifully proportioned rooms. The property is surrounded by super gardens and woodland filled with specimen trees, shrubs and flowers. The accommodation includes three large reception rooms, five bedrooms two of which are en-suite and a fitted kitchen/breakfast room. Of further note are the two separate letting units which are incorporated in the main body of the building, one of which has separate access and one of which can either be accessed from the main hallway or to the rear of the property. These two letting units can either remain as such or be brought back into the main body of the accommodation or be used as annexe. There is an elegant drawing room with French doors onto the gardens and a fireplace with a wood burning stove. The dining room is large and atmospheric with wood burning stove and carved wooden surround. There is a third large reception room, which is presently used as a games room.
