Property description

The Old Rectory is a most attractively situated country house of character, dating back from the 1620’s with later 18th Century additions and was used in the 1940s by the ladies of the land army.

Principally constructed in a Georgian style of stone under a steep pitched Collyweston slate roof, with moulded stone architraves and mullion windows. The house has been designed to take full advantage of its wonderful setting with three of the main reception rooms enjoying a southerly aspect. Accordingly, the rooms offer excellent ceiling heights and are flooded with a good deal of natural light which pours in through the most impressive windows. The house exhibits many wonderful period features typical of its age, including impressive ornate fireplaces, decorative plaster work, wood panelling and large mullion windows, most with shutters and window seats. The accommodation is on a grand scale and comprises a number of elegant rooms arranged over four floors, in total there are six reception rooms, ten bedrooms, four bathrooms and a cellar (including four rooms). There are two staircases to help circulate through the accommodation and give access to all floors with a separate door and stone steps down into the cellar rooms.

The Old Rectory is approached through a pillared and gated entrance way with a carriage driveway leading to the front of the property where you will find ample parking, however the majority of the parking can be found to the rear of the property. The beautiful grounds and gardens include a variety of useful outbuildings, mature (preserved) trees, a picturesque stream and an unused swimming pool. There is scope for buyers to update/convert the outbuildings (subject to planning) to put their own unique mark on the property.
