A beautiful house and family home, situated in a generous plot in this most sought after coastal village.
The Old Rectory is an elegant and imposing house situated in a generous plot extending to three quarters of an acre (sts). It is set in a peaceful location, gated and set back from the road, standing adjacent to the picturesque 13th Century parish church of St Andrew. The Old Rectory has undergone some refurbishment to create a beautiful family home with generously proportioned rooms which maintain many original features throughout. The Old Rectory features a bespoke handmade kitchen by Henry Gordon Jones, including a built-in china cabinet, an oil Esse range cooker which also provides heating and hot water, a walk-in larder, as well as a built-in electric Miele hob, oven, dishwasher and a double butler sink. Double doors open onto the rear garden. The two reception rooms both have double aspects, making them light and airy, with a log burning stove in the sitting room. There is a study and a family room/5th bedroom. The utility room, which is off the kitchen, is also bespoke handmade by Henry Gordon Jones. A downstairs cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation. The four first floor bedrooms all enjoy interesting and varied views over the church and gardens, with the double aspect master bedroom enjoying outstanding views of the church. All further three bedrooms are of a good size and share the family bathroom and separate W.C. The property is approached via double gates onto a shingle driveway and forecourt, providing ample parking for several cars. The Old Rectory stands on a generous and envious plot of three quarters of an acre (sts). The well established gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature shrubs, beech hedges and various trees including a copper maple and various fruit trees. The hedging allows the garden to be separated into different areas including a children’s play area with a Wendy house. There are two large timber sheds and a greenhouse.
The Old Rectory is set back from the road in a delightful central location next to St Andrews Church.
