Description

The Old Rectory is a superb 5/6 bedroom Grade II listed property which, we understand was designed by the renowned Victorian architect SS Teulon. Much of Teulon’s work was centred in London and the Home Counties, although a number of his vicarages can be found in Lincolnshire, he is renowned for superb Gothic style residences. The Old Rectory has been sympathetically refurbished and modernised creating a very special family house. The property sits in the middle of its own mature grounds and has an impressive selection of reception rooms including a Vale House conservatory making it ideal for entertaining. With hardwood floors, tall ceilings, mullioned windows and grand proportions The Old Rectory needs to be seen to be full appreciated.

In more detail the accommodation comprises grand entrance hall with stripped wooden floor, fireplace and stone mullioned windows, drawing room set into bay window with fireplace, reception room with fireplace opening through to magnificent Vale House conservatory with fitted ceiling blinds, tiled floor with under floor heating, two sets of double doors opening onto terrace and garden. Handmade bespoke kitchen breakfast room with good range of wall and base units, central island with wood and granite worktops, Aga and stripped wood floors. Dining room with fireplace, utility room, kit room with fitted cupboards, boot room, WC and access to the cellar. The first floor has a master bedroom with dressing room and en suite shower room, guest bedroom with en suite shower room, four further bedrooms (one currently set up as an office) and a luxuriously appointed family bathroom.

Outside the property is set well back from the road in the middle of its grounds and is approached via a sweeping gravel driveway which leads to a turning circle to the front and the outbuildings to the rear. The picturesque grounds have a variety of mature trees and hedges making it very private. There are lawns, terraces, kitchen garden and a pond. There is an impressive range of outbuildings including a Coach House. Finally there is a drying room, workshop, greenhouse, double garage and a three bay open garage.
