Sales Particulars

Wright Marshall estate agents are honoured to offer for sale what is arguably the finest house in the Village. The Old Rectory is a substantial period residence of quality, character and a most distinctive and aesthetically pleasing elevation. The property is located in the centre of the village yet enjoys generous gardens and grounds, with a swimming pool and tennis court, exceptional rural views and close proximity to icons of the village including the beautiful St Helens parish church and the iconic Swan Hotel. In addition to the extensive gardens and grounds, the house offers magnificent eight bedroom accommodation with the overall square footage extending to 6,309.

As one would expect the house oozes quality, character and appeal. There are numerous features of note and only upon internal inspection will prospective purchasers be able to truly recognise and enjoy the many finer points of detail. The reception hall is in itself a magnificent room extending in total to 36’6″ x 13’7″. In addition to the distinctive tiled floor, the property also has access to a small original chapel and has a bespoke hardwood staircase rising to the first floor. There are numerous receptions at ground floor level that briefly comprise the chapel, drawing room, dining room, sitting room and sunroom. Each room has its own character and points of interest. The drawing room is particularly attractive having a wonderful proportion with a large bay window with seat overlooking the principal gardens to the rear. In addition to these many reception rooms, there is also an excellent breakfast kitchen which lies adjacent to the dining room and completing the accommodation at ground floor level is a pantry, laundry room and cloakroom.

At first floor level, the accommodation continues to impress with the half landing having a feature window overlooking the views to the rear and the landing itself being spacious and elegant. As one would expect the master suite is hugely impressive in terms of proportions with the bedroom measuring 20′ x 16′ and the en-suite bathroom 19’11” x 11’8″. Bedrooms two, three and four are all very large doubles and the house bathroom is again a good size and well appointed. The bedrooms could, of course, be used alternatively as hobby rooms and/or additional reception rooms given their proportion and scale and it should be noted that there is already a first-floor study. Bedroom five has been cleverly designed so as to offer the potential to be a self-contained suite having adjacent to it a kitchenette and bathroom. Crowning the building are two further bedrooms and a storeroom.

Externally the property has numerous features of merit. To the front of the property, there is a sweeping gravelled in and out driveway and access to the useful outbuildings that incorporate a double garage and further additional garage. To the front, there is also a raised area of lawn with mature trees, whilst the rear and side gardens are principally laid to lawn but also incorporate a tennis court and pond. The rural views beyond the gardens are a real delight and very rare to be found in such a central village location.

Mr Robert Reed and Mr Nigel Eckersley of Wright Marshall would be happy to answer any queries from interested parties on this fine, unique and most splendid residence. Given its rarity value, significant interest is anticipated.
