Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Believed to date originally from about 1680 and then altered and extended in both the Georgian and Victorian periods, The Old Rectory is a charming and spacious Grade II listed example of a village rectory

All the rooms have good ceiling heights and the house has retained many original period features such as beams, stone mullioned windows and stone fireplaces. The house has been sympathetically restored and updated including the addition of a fine conservatory to a new kitchen to create a wonderful family space for eating and entertaining and the conversion of The Coach House to form a self-contained guest cottage.
The front door opens to a long entrance hall with a fine, broad staircase rising to the first floor and off which are four reception rooms. Also off the hall are the cloakroom, a storeroom and the walk-in larder. With access to both the dining room and playroom are the conjoined kitchen/ breakfast room and conservatory. On the first floor are the master bedroom and en-suite bathroom, four further double bedrooms, a single bedroom, two further bathrooms and the study.
Behind the house is the former Coach House which has been converted into a two bedroom self-contained guest cottage. Next to The Coach House is a barbeque area with a paved dining area beneath a pergola, two storerooms and a covered seating area. Adjacent and screened behind a tall stone wall are the heated swimming pool and a small orchard. The property is approached down a short gravelled driveway, which turns into a large turning circle bounded by a mixture of stone walling and mature trees. In all the garden extends to about 0.9 acre.
