The Old Rectory is a country house providing 5520 sq ft of accommodation over two floors plus a cellar.

Consisting of brick elevations beneath a slate roof, the Georgian property was extended by previous owners in the 1990s to provide a spacious and versatile seven-bedroom home.

Property agent Lucy Banks said: “This is a really stunning family home.

“I love the elegance of the Georgian wing which has been enhanced by the spacious, more recent extension and recently re-fitted Aga kitchen.

“The two-bedroom detached cottage, games room, swimming pool, tennis court and work from home office provide fantastic versatility. What a wonderful family home.”

The home incorporates many period features including deep sash windows and shutters, a large bay window in the drawing room, high ceilings, open fireplaces, cornicing and skirting boards as well as an elegant principal staircase.
