Description

The Old Rectory is a classic Regency rectory in need of some work, with painted brick elevations under a slate roof and a number of period features. Steps lead up to a glazed conservatory entrance with double doors to the charming reception hall and staircase rising to the first floor. The three principal reception rooms comprise a large south and east facing drawing room, a spacious south and west facing study/sitting room and a graceful west facing dining room, each featuring open fireplaces and double height sash windows. The west facing dining room and study windows open up onto an elegant verandah.

An inner hall, with secondary staircase to the first floor, provides access to an extensive cellar and the kitchen, with built-in dresser and walk-in larder as well as cupboards, sink, double oven, fridge and induction hob. Steps lead down to a rear kitchen/utility room with butler’s sink and further storage units. The rear hall also provides access to a boot room incorporating an old bread oven. An internal passage leads to a cloakroom and garden door, with steps up to a mezzanine storage room/potential study.

On the first floor a galleried landing, with central circular roof light above, provides access to the south and west facing master bedroom with en suite bath/shower room and two further bedrooms, one with patterned plaster ceiling and wash basin. The inner landing leads to three further bedrooms, bathroom and separate cloakroom, as well as the secondary staircase.

OUTSIDE
Immediately to the rear of the house is a range of brick and slate outbuildings. The adjacent yard provides extensive parking and a separate brick and slate garage range (former stables) with two sets of double doors and further additional storage buildings beyond.

COTTAGE
Forming part of the buildings around the rear yard is a former gardener’s cottage, fitted out as a library, with adjoining double garage. The entrance hall and two reception rooms are lined with floor to ceiling bookshelves. A staircase leads to the first floor bedroom, bathroom and galleried study area. On the ground floor there is a kitchenette and cloakroom and to the rear of the cottage is an area of decking and an atmospheric garden room with folding doors.

GARDENS & GROUNDS
The Old Rectory is totally screened from the adjacent village street by a magnificent holly hedge and a part rendered brick wall with trees and hedge behind. A white painted wrought iron gate between flint walls leads into the front drive with gravel sweep and steps up to the front door. An ornate rose garden lies to the east of the house, with lawn to the south and west and brick-faced ha-ha and meadowland beyond, all surrounded by mature specimen trees. The lawn slopes down to a pond and rhododendrons with an archway through a hedge to a pretty ornamental lily pool garden with herbaceous border and curved brick walling at either end providing seating areas. Beyond is the part-walled vegetable garden with fruit trees, greenhouse and store, leading to stables, paddock and meadowland. To the east of the rear entrance driveway and lane are allotments, rented to village residents, and a further field for grazing.
