The Old Rectory dates from 1865 and was designed by Ewan Christian, a prominent architect of his time who, amongst numerous other ecclesiastical commissions, designed The National Portrait Gallery. As a result the property stands out as one of the finest in the area and whilst it has received a number of additions, including garaging and a large garden room, it has been sympathetically maintained since passing into private ownership in the 1960s.

Over the past 40 years the present owners have continued to update and improve the house and its extensive gardens, creating a comfortable family home. Period features have been preserved and modern improvements sensitively added. The rooms are of near perfect proportions and are all blessed with copious amounts of natural light, the majority enjoying delightful views across the gardens, neighbouring farmland and the Yorkshire Wolds. This is a handsome house, large but not too large, occupying a private position in this picturesque rural village situated in beautifully rolling countryside, marking the point where the lower slopes of the Wolds meet the edge of the Howardian Hills.

The gardens extend to approximately 1 acre and surround the house on three sides; to the south, west and east. Leading through the garden are 2 sweeping gravel driveways which draw up to a large turning area with mature trees on either side and a stumpery in centre. Much like the house, the gardens have been lovingly maintained and improved; more recently becoming an entry into the Yellow Book National Garden Scheme. Featuring manicured lawns, large colourful beds and numerous specimen trees including a majestic sequoia, copper beech, willow and various firs as well as an ornamental pond. The garden provides points of interest and outside seating spaces, including a summer house in the south west corner which enjoys magnificent views. At the far end of the garden is a copse of mature trees and a vegetable garden alongside which stands an attractive coach house providing additional storage space.
