Full description

Elegant Rectory in mature gardens extending to over an acre with 3 reception rooms, 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms. Currently run as a quality Guest House however, could also be used as a well appointed family home.


The Old Rectory is believed to date back to 18th century and is adjacent to the redundant church of St James which has Norman origins. Situated on a small lane just off Stirchley Road, The Old Rectory is beautifully well appointed having been sympathetically refurbished by the current owners to a very high standard, using modern fixtures and fittings, whilst complementing original
and character features.

The accommodation is arranged predominantly over three levels and has a useful storage cellar. The Old Rectory offers practical accommodation for modern day living but retains the elegance of well proportioned rooms for entertaining, with many rooms featuring large sash windows providing lots of light. The entrance hall has Victorian floor tiles and is a fabulous introduction to the property, with the three principal reception rooms sitting on either side: the drawing room features solid wood parquet flooring, decorative coving and a marble fireplace with a multi fuel stove; the sitting room, also having a marble fireplace with special Jackfield "Poppy" tiles and a double aspect. Finally, the family/dining room with feature beams, a multi fuel burner one end and a large brick fireplace with an open fire at the other. A downstairs bedroom with an ensuite wetroom has its own separate access from outside and could offer the opportunity for multi generational living or a separate
office. The breakfast kitchen is a good size and features a Rayburn with patio doors leading to a private outside seating area. A utility and downstairs cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

The first floor provides three generously proportioned bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms/shower rooms, two further bedrooms, two family bathrooms and an office. A further bedroom and useful storage area are available on the second floor. The Old Rectory is currently a quality Guest House. In order to
offer greater flexibility for prospective purchasers, our clients have made a planning application for change of use to a private residence. This will provide a time frame of 3 years for current or future owners to decide whether to continue the business or have it as a well appointed family home.

The enclosed gardens extend to just over an acre and are undoubtedly a wonderful feature of The Old Rectory benefitting from an abundance of mature shrubs and trees. There is also a very productive kitchen garden, an orchard and an area for chickens. The property is accessed via a gravel driveway and provides parking/turning for several vehicles. A double garage
with workshop and a timber studio are found to the side of the property.

Square Footage: 4,671 sq ft
