Description - This wonderful late Victorian former rectory, enjoys all the splendour that former rectories are renowned for. Originally constructed for the Canon of the diocese and his family and set in almost an acre of formal gardens, hidden from view behind an electronic gate which opens to a driveway that sweeps around to reveal this beautiful home.
Refurbished and updated to a high standard by the current owners, who have been extremely sympathetic to the original character, yet brought this wonderful home into the twenty first century.
The house itself offers flexible accommodation and will be easily adaptable to the next custodians needs. On the top floor could easily be a self-contained suite and the triple garage and first floor gym could also be converted into a detached dwelling, subject to the relevant permissions.
