A unique opportunity to purchase this grand and elegant Grade II listed Georgian Former Rectory (totalling 4538 sq ft approx) dating back to 1820, set within 0.75 acres with outbuildings. The house is in need of modernisation, but retains a plethora of period features and charm and could be restored to an impressive family home, or converted into a number of commercial uses (subject to consents). Properties of this calibre rarely come to market, so this is not one to miss! Entering through a large vestibule, you are welcomed by a grand entrance hall with impressive ceiling rose and arched doorway. The first reception room to your left is a large room, currently used as a library with wooden shelving to one wall, and has an abundance of period features such as sash windows with wooden shutters (which are continued throughout the whole house), cornicing, picture rails and a large solid wood mantlepiece. The second reception is a grand and imposing room, flooded with light through French doors and two large sash windows, a beautiful decorative archway and an ornate cast iron fireplace boasting picturesque views across the gardens. The third reception is a well-proportioned dining room with direct access to the kitchen. The kitchen is a generously proportioned room with an Aga, two large walk-in larders, a range of modern base and wall units as well as original wooden wall cupboards. The final rooms on the ground floor are a number of multi-use store rooms off the kitchen which would work well as a utility room and storage. Ascending the grand staircase with beautiful picture window and window seat, there is a large central hallway leading to five bedrooms, two bathrooms, and access to the loft. All the bedrooms are generous in size but two in particular are exceptionally large and have stripped floorboards and ornate cast iron fireplaces. There are two bathrooms, one with a bath and WC and one with WC, shower and bath. There is an exceptionally large airing cupboard which also houses the stairs to the loft rooms, which are not currently used, but could be converted into further accommodation (subject to consents). Externally, the property has a beautiful wrought iron Pergola and historic walled gardens with a plot totalling 0.75 acres. The landscaped and mature gardens wrap around the house and give the opportunity (subject to planning) to build an additional residence (or residences) whilst still retaining a large garden for the main house. There are outbuildings to the front of the house which would have once been stables, but could now be used as garages or a workshop, or converted into ancillary accommodation (subject to consents). *Please be advised that the property is subject to an overage clause on the basis of a 10% payment of the finished market value of any additional dwellings built upon the site for a term of 25 years. *The new owner will not be permitted to use the word Rectory as the house name, nor any other words such as Old Rectory , or anything which could imply a link with the C of E. This will be one of the standard covenants.
