An exquisite former rectory with superb equestrian facilities, situated in a private position

The Old Rectory is an exquisite family home, offering approximately 4,938 sq. ft. of accommodation in the main house, presented to an exceptional standard throughout. The current owners have modernised the house to provide the best of family living, retaining the original character of the property with features including large sash windows with shutters, open fireplaces and high ceilings. Truly outstanding views can be appreciated from most of the accommodation.

There are four large reception rooms on the ground floor including the sitting room, dining room and study at the rear of the house, all of which are well-proportioned rooms with open fireplaces and attractive exposed floorboards. The fourth reception room, the courtyard room, is situated in a newer extension to the property which complements the rest of the house perfectly, featuring an intricately tiled floor, exposed stonework and a large skylight providing ample natural light. Also in this part of the house is the very spacious kitchen/breakfast room which has a range of stylish fitted units with granite worktops, a large kitchen island and breakfast bar, an AGA, dishwasher, Siemens electric oven and a wine cooler. There is also a separate utility room which provides additional storage with fitted larder cupboards and more granite worktops. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a family bathroom, a useful boot room and a gym.

Four generously-proportioned double bedrooms are located on the first floor, all which have wonderful views of the surrounding verdant countryside. Two of the bedrooms share a Jack and-Jill shower room, whilst the other two are serviced by a well-appointed wet room. There is also a laundry room.

The second floor offers a large double bedroom, also with stunning views, plus an adjoining room which could be used as a seating area, dressing room or additional sixth bedroom. There is an adjacent en suite shower room.
