Beautifully presented former Victorian rectory with outbuildings, tennis court and swimming pool located in a peaceful setting surrounded by unspoilt countryside.
The Rectory is in a superb and peaceful setting. The property is slightly elevated giving views over its grounds either to unspoilt adjoining countryside towards the Cotswolds or to the adjacent church. The pretty village of Oldbury on Severn with a community shop and a highly rated public house is only 0.3 mile.The Rectory was purchased from the church in 1997 when in need of complete modernisation. It has since been sympathetically restored, carefully preserving and enhancing features appropriate to the period. There are tessellated, flagstone and slate floors, working window shutters, moulded ceiling cornices, moulded skirting boards, architraves and panelled doors, period fireplaces, butler's pantry, stained glass window and a fine staircase rising to the first floor.The charming interior is extremely well presented and has a warm and friendly atmosphere, with comfortable ceiling heights and light rooms.Double doors open from an entrance vestibule and inner hall leading into a lovely staircase hall with archway and a tall stained glass window at half landing level. The drawing room, sitting room and dining room are arranged off the hall and all enjoy views across the gardens and surrounding countryside. There is access to a butler's panty which has a large original dresser as well as a lead lined sink and a cloakroom. The original servants' bells are still in place and there is access to the cellar. The kitchen has an Aga, flagstone floors and original dresser which leads onto a large rear hall, currently used as a large cloakroom but could be used as a separate breakfast room. This room has a secondary staircase and there is a utility room off.A fine staircase leads to a gallery landing with five double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room. There is a further shower room and a good size family bath/shower room. From the inner landing, there is access to the second floor and the attic rooms. One of the rooms has potential to be used as a 6th bedroom or study, and there is plenty of further space with good ceiling height and the potential to create further accommodation, subject to any necessary planning consents.The Rectory is approached through double wrought iron gates which open to a tree lined drive, parking for several cars and to a detached former stable / coach house which now comprises a garage and laundry with cobbled floor. There is a former hay loft at first floor level and above the laundry which, via an archway gives access to a boarded storage area above the garage. This building, subject to the necessary consents could form additional accommodation or an annexe to the main house.From the drive a double and single timber gate open into a rear walled and part cobbled courtyard, where the garage / laundry building can also be accessed, together with a further stone and tile building housing wood and oil tank store, further wood store and bin store.the gardens and grounds are a delight and have been informally planned to compliment the period of the house. The views are superb. There are expanses of level lawn, one ideal for a croquet lawn and includes a tennis astro turf court. The gardens are interspersed with mature trees including olive trees. Around the garden are herbaceous borders, a variety of mature shrubs, roses, lavender borders, kitchen garden and stone and tile tractor shed. A mixed orchard and wild meadow are located in the lower area of the garden and the strategically placed outdoor heated swimming pool with stunning views make is an ideal area for entertaining In all the property extends to approximately 2.02 acres.
