General Description - A fine and substantial Grade II listed former Rectory occupying walled grounds approaching circa 1.75 acres in the well-serviced East Midlands village of Kegworth. The property boasts circa 7,600 square feet gross floor area across the living accommodation, Victorian coach house and pool house, both detached and constructed in the substantial gardens. The property is believed to date back in part to the 18th-Century, and has undergone a large renovation and extensive remodelling works completed around 1849 in a Victorian vernacular.
The Old Rectory - The property boasts circa 6,000 square feet of generous and impressive living space laid across three floors and with the addition of a cellar. A beautiful reception hall with grand early Victorian staircase makes an instant impression and leads in turn to the main grand rooms in the house. Both the drawing and dining rooms have beautiful sash windows with original shutters, and in addition is a garden room, fully fitted kitchen, w.c, and an operating garage that was formerly the music room and could easily be restored to its former glory. Upstairs are eight double bedrooms in total, laid across the first and second floors. There is a four-piece family bathroom, and the impressive grand principle bedroom boasts private en-suite facilities.
Gardens And Grounds - The main front door is accessed via the street, giving a delightful glimpse of the scale and Grandeur to follow. A period wall runs the length of the plot affording the grounds a high degree of privacy and security. There is a pedestrian access and two vehicular access points into the grounds, one of the latter to the southern edge of the boundary adjacent to a beautiful Victorian coach house that could be restored and renovated subject to the necessary consents.
The mature and varied grounds have a largely private aspect. There are formal gardens to the front of the main elevation, various seating terraces, and substantial tree lined lawns. To the Northern end of the boundary is the working garden.
There is a detached pool house that is unused and derelict, and could be recommissioned and the building rebuilt on its footprint should the purchaser wish. There are also a collection of smaller outbuildings with gardeners w.c and stores.
Location - Kegworth is a large village settlement bordering the counties of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire. The village has excellent transport links via rail, road and air. There are a full host of amenities to include a thriving High Street with restaurants, eateries, a doctor's surgery and grocery shop.
