Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Rectory is a highly attractive individual house dated 1871 and built of mellow Ancaster stone with distinctive stone mullioned bay windows beneath gabled slate roofs. The property has been comprehensively restored over recent years with great attention to detail and retains a wealth of features characteristic of the early Victorian period. The stylish family accommodation includes four well-proportioned reception rooms, seven bedrooms and three bathrooms. To the rear of the house is an enviable courtyard, the central feature of which is a large heated swimming pool with an orangery and a two storey former coach house that has been converted to a leisure building and incorporates a large party room, gym and sauna. These buildings could easily be converted to provide self-contained ancillary accommodation if required. The house stands in delightful walled gardens and is approached by a private gravelled driveway leading through electric gates to a generous parking area and garaging for up to six cars. There are a further range of good quality stone buildings suited to a variety of uses, a delightful tree house, a large wildlife pond and freshwater stream at the end of the garden. It is difficult to overstress the overall amenity and variety of attributes The Old Rectory now offers and in particular the artisanal approach of the current owner in attention to quality and detail.

Wilsford is a pretty village situated some 5 miles south-west of Sleaford and 9 miles north-east of Grantham. The Old Rectory is located opposite St Marys Church with the nearby Plough public house nearby and a local Post Office/shop on Main Street. The larger village of Ancaster is only about a mile away and benefits from a doctors surgery, Co-op supermarket, butchers shop and public houses. There are popular primary schools at both Ancaster and South Rauceby whilst opportunities for secondary education include Carres Grammar School at Sleaford and both The Kings School and Kesteven and Grantham Girls School at Grantham. These towns contain a comprehensive range of shops and other amenities and Grantham is very popular with commuters and offers access to London Kings Cross with a journey time of around 70 minutes. The A1 is also joined at Grantham and allows rapid north-south road communications. There is golf at Sleaford Golf Club (3 miles) and both golf and leisure at Belton Woods (7 miles)
