THE OLD RECTORY
A rather special Grade II Listed period house dating from circa 1740 (with later additions) set in extensive sheltered gardens and grounds adjacent to the parish church on the southern edge of East Bridgford, a highly rated Conservation village standing high above the south bank of the River Trent, with the unspoilt countryside of the Vale of Belvoir extending eastwards from the village.
The architecture of the house reflects the elegance of the Georgian era, the main elevation having an ornate veranda, with symmetrical French windows opening from the two main reception rooms into the garden.
The internal plan of the house which is planned on three floors extends to approximately 4190 sq. feet (480 sq. metres) offering in summary; Entrance Hall, Inner Hall, Drawing Room, Dining Room, Study and Large Breakfast Kitchen on ground floor level, with four principal bedrooms and two bathrooms on first floor level and two/three secondary bedrooms on the upper level.
The part walled gardens and private grounds extend to circa 1.98 acres; being the formal gardens around the house, the walled kitchen garden with traditional greenhouse and the wooded garden leading down to the grass paddock which has a second access from Trent Lane.
An extensive range of period outbuildings set along the southern boundary offers the flexibility for a range of possible alternative uses; a residential annex, hobbies/leisure facilities, or business use, subject to statutory planning considerations.
It should be noted that The Old Rectory, albeit described accurately as a fine and substantial period house, does require extensive refurbishment, a factor which has been carefully considered in setting the price guide.
The Sellers have instructed John Brailsford Chartered Surveyor to carry out a pre-sale structural report on the house on the basis that the professional responsibility attaching to the report will be transferred to the Purchasers on completion of the sale.
East Bridgford is a highly regarded Conservation village some ten miles to the east of Nottingham, a village having the essentials of the traditional English village; a highly rated Church of England Primary School (http://www.eastbridgfordstpeters.co.uk/ofstedsiams), an ‘active’ Church community, a well-stocked village store and Post Office, a thriving village inn and a vibrant community spirit centred on an extensive range of cultural and sporting activities, including cricket, football, tennis and bowls, with the village spirit being displayed in good measure at the East Bridgford Annual Village Show held annually on Butts Field.
