Lot 1: Rectory Farmhouse, Orchard Cottage and Carters Cottage (Coloured pink on the plan.)
About 2.62 acres (1.06 hectares)
Rectory Farmhouse is an imposing, historic house of limestone under a stone slate roof. The house is set back from the village road and approached over a driveway off Church Road to reveal the property. The house has a date stone of 1629 but is believed to be even earlier in origin and to be part of an endowment to St John’s College in 1555. The house is mentioned in “The History of St John’s College” by W C Costin and records that the house was re-built between 1621 and 1641 which ties in with the date stone of 1629 above the front door.
Carters Cottage and Orchard Cottage
To the east of the main house and of the entrance drive are the two holiday cottages. These are essentially mirror images of each other as shown on the floorplans and have been superbly converted from a former cart shed. Each provides 2 bedrooms, bathroom, shower room, kitchen/breakfast and living room. Both have south facing gardens and ample parking area to the front.
Lot 1a Paddock (Coloured green on the plan.)
About 1.86 acres (0.75 hectares)
To the south of Rectory Farmhouse’s vegetable garden is the paddock of approximately 1.86 acres. The paddock is laid to grass and the majority of the boundaries are mature hedgerows and fencing.
Lot 2 Extra Cover (Coloured blue on the plan.)
About 0.24 acres (0.10 hectares)
To the north west of Rectory Farmhouse and accessed off the same driveway is Extra Cover. The house was built in 2001 upon the site of a former barn and provides spacious accommodation extending to approximately 2,300 sq ft (220 sq m). Whilst the house is an excellent family home it also provides potential for a variety of uses such as office space, mixed use residential and office etc subject to the necessary consents.
