The Old Rectory is a wonderful Grade II listed property believed to have been built in 1611 with later extensions in 1729 and 1850. The current owners have carried out extensive improvements creating a beautifully presented family home whilst retaining all the original features. The rooms are exceptionally light with tall sash windows, many of which have their original shutters and exceptionally high ceilings. In the oldest part of the house there are exposed beams and the original 17th century brick floor in the hallway and boot room.
The ground floor has a large welcoming hall with oak flooring and leads to the sitting room which has the original wood panelling, wood floors and a jet master fireplace. To the rear is the kitchen/breakfast room with a large bay window with three doors opening out to the garden. The bespoke wood kitchen has an excellent range of cupboards, central island, Aga and a fireplace with a wood burner. Next to the kitchen is the snug. In the older part of the house is a delightful dining room, again with a wood burner, and a study with fitted shelves and cupboards. There is a good-sized scullery, cloakroom and boot room.
Upstairs is a very large master bedroom with a bay window making the most of the views over the garden and fields beyond. The en suite bathroom has a large copper bath and separate shower. There are four further double bedrooms and two family bathrooms.
On the top floor the owners have recently created a further double bedroom with exposed beams and a further bathroom.
To the front of the house is a large gravel drive with parking for several cars and a hidden garden bordered by mature shrubs. To the side is a double garage with the potential to create a room above (subject to the necessary planning permissions). To the rear of the house is the extensive garden which is mostly laid to lawn with established flower beds interspersed with mature trees including a magnificent copper birch. A yew hedge with arch creates further areas including a wild meadow area and a peaceful haven with which to enjoy the views towards the house. Adjacent to the house is a large terrace.
