Believed to date back to be early 18th Century with later Victorian additions, this imposing former Rectory is set in an elevated position on the edge of a popular village, with views over the beautiful formal gardens and grounds.
The Old Rectory offers elegant and beautifully proportioned accommodation, as you would expect from a property of this period. Constructed in red brick beneath a tiled roof and enjoys bright, well-proportioned rooms over three floors with tremendous ceiling heights and many period features.
Accessed via wrought iron gates that lead to the parking and turning circle, this fine family home sits in a gloriously secluded setting behind a mature bank of established trees.
Internally the house combines light and spacious reception rooms with comfortable bedroom accommodation to the first and second floors. Of particular note is the south facing kitchen that opens through to the breakfast room; a fantastic entertaining space which runs directly from the impressive reception hall.
Outside is the charming Lavender Cottage, recently refurbished providing comfortable secondary accommodation. There is an extensive range of traditional outbuildings including stabling and storage together with garaging, a gym and workshops.
The gardens and grounds:
A principal feature of The Old Rectory are the grounds which have been carefully designed with formal parterre gardens adjoining open expanses of lawn. The gardens are studded with a selection of mature trees and beautifully stocked borders that divide the grounds to offer areas of tranquility. In May and June, a tall bank of Rhododendrons provides an expanse of colour beyond which is one of two natural ponds. To the south is the paddock with separate access.
