DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY In a fantastic setting, The Old Rectory offers buyers an increasingly rare opportunity to purchase a significant home with much character and soul in a very popular, exclusive village. The property itself is believed to date from the medieval period, having since been extended by following generations, most significantly in the early19th Century. The substantial family home available today is the result of these additions and is the perfect residence for those wanting the peaceful surroundings of a village and the proximity to a vibrant, thriving city.

An entrance porch opens into a ground floor hallway, off which all four principal reception rooms are located. The largest of these, the drawing room, features an especially impressive Sicilian marble mantelpiece with wood burner within and a south facing, bay window looking over the garden and fields beyond. Both the study and the dining room look over the front elevation and have open fireplaces. The sitting room includes an exposed stone chimney breast with wood burner and is immediately adjacent to the kitchen and also connects into a further multi-purpose adaptable fifth reception room with cloakroom off. A second staircase, from the family lounge, also leads to the first floor bedrooms.

An elegant staircase leads to the first floor and six double bedrooms. The two largest are both en suite; whilst the bedroom to the south-east corner features a Medieval window. All these bedrooms have use of a family bathroom and a separate WC.  

GARDENS AND GROUNDS The Old Rectory is located to the historic heart of this village in an unrivalled, secluded plot. It is approached via a driveway to the side of the Church of St Brides which is shared in part with one neighbouring property. The driveway sweeps through a gated entrance to the front of the property and circles around to one side. A separate drive provides access to a further parking area to the northern side of the property. The thoughtfully considered gardens have matured over time and provide a seasonally changing screen. The principal garden spaces are to the east, south, and western sides, the largest area of lawn is to the western side of the property catch the afternoon and evening sun.
