INFORMATION The property was constructed in 1979 as a New Rectory for the Parish and remained as a Rectory until 2000 when it was no longer required by the church.  Subsequently the property has been a family home and has been extensively updated and improved by the present vendors to create a light filled versatile house with well proportioned accommodation throughout.
