A fully restored and beautifully presented old rectory standing in mature grounds.
Fast Find: 42637
The Old Rectory was originally built circa 1805 of red brick under a slate roof. The property has recently been extensively renovated and refurbished to an extremely high standard, rarely seen in a house of this period and size in the Norfolk/Suffolk borders. The sympathetic refurbishment work included re-wiring, re-plumbing, insulation, timber treatment and re-roofing, all done to the highest specification. In addition, modern appliances were added throughout the house, demonstrating the high standard of the project and included a high pressure water system linked to the heating system, which includes under-floor and radiators. All system sources are located in the cellar of the house, including the hot water tank, boiler, computer server and the high specification security system. This is a video system linked to the electric gates and security lighting. The dry, restored cellar also provides further storage space, alongside a wine store.
The current owners have taken great care to maintain and restore all period detail to the house, including cornice work, fireplaces and traditional locally sourced oak flooring. A hard wood conservatory was added to the west of the house, creating an open plan kitchen and dining room. This leads out on to the patio, enjoying fine views of the surrounding garden and farmland. There is currently planning permission for an orangery to the east of the house. There are classically proportioned rooms throughout, with the main reception rooms and bedrooms to the front of the house facing south. All rooms in the house have telephone and TV points, internet connectivity and a number of power sockets. The bedrooms and main ground floor rooms also enjoy double aspect views over the countryside.

Gardens & Grounds
There are two driveways to the Rectory, the original driveway accessed from Church Lane. This is a sweeping driveway leading through the gardens to the west side of the house. The most used driveway is approached through the north through electrically operated remote controlled gates via a graveled drive leading up to a parking area adjoining the house. To the north of the house is a large area of lawn, part of which has been professionally laid out as a grass tennis court. To the east is a raised kitchen garden with path leading up to the outbuildings, which include three store rooms and 3 bay cart shed. These outbuildings are shielded from the house by mature trees. This in turn leads to a large pond located to the south of the house next to the main area of lawn which adjoins the patio. The patio runs the full south face of the house, leading round to the west and the south facing conservatory. This part of the garden has a parklike setting sweeping from the south to the west of the house and adjoining the church. There are a selection of flowerbeds, with newly planted rhododendrons and fine, mature trees. To the north west of the house is a further area of lawn with seating area. This is reached by a graveled path, which also leads to a wooden framed outbuilding, useful for storage. The gardens and grounds as a whole are bordered by established hedging and, to the south, young hedges. There is planning permission for a barn, which incorporates a workshop. The gardens extend in all to approximately 3.3 acres.
