The Old Rectory is situated on the west side of the churchyard and is a two storey Grade II* listed house of timber, brick and plaster, the roofs are tiled. The building is said to be on the site of a cell of Burnham Abbey and was built-in the first half of the 16th century. In recent times the building has been used for parochial purposes. The actual building forms three sides of a central courtyard.
This luxury development exudes quality and character. There are numerous exposed beams, high ceilings, period fireplaces and views of the Old Town, church and pretty private and central courtyards, through beautiful diamond leaded light windows. This wonderful conversion of an historic period building has been undertaken with amazing attention to detail, retaining an abundance of original features with high quality fittings and finishes.
The apartment can be accessed via video entry pedestrian gate into the central communal courtyard or alternatively from its own private courtyard garden. A private front door leads into the impressive beamed reception hall with an understairs storage cupboard and a door to the courtyard garden. Of particular note off the reception hall is the staircase rising to the first floor landing with the original central newel and handrail. The sitting room with views over the private courtyard, has wood panelled walls on three sides and a fine carved stone fireplace with a wood burner as a focal point of the room. The kitchen/breakfast room is well appointed with Hacker handleless units and integrated Siemens appliances complemented by quartz worktops. Appliances include an induction hob, wine cooler, Quooker tap, double oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer. There is a large central island with a breakfast bar and seating for four. A cloakroom completes the accommodation on this floor.
On the first floor, the landing is generous and wraps around to create a useful space perfect for a seating/study area and features an attractive stone fireplace with herringbone brick detail. The principal bedroom is a beautifully proportioned room with a feature period fireplace and a bay window giving views over the church and the Old Town. There are fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. The second bedroom has a beamed and vaulted ceiling, fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room.
