An attractive period old rectory with great potential and sensational distant views.
The Old Rectory is a splendid period family house. The house is believed to have originally been from the Georgian period, with an impressive Victorian front façade. The house was considerably larger until the northwestern wing was knocked down in the 1920s. This, subject to the necessary planning permissions, provides a wonderful opportunity to extend the house in this area to create a modern kitchen.
The Victorian drawing room is a truly elegant room, with wonderful proportions, ornate coving, an impressive fire place and double doors onto the terrace. The dining room and sitting room are both well-proportioned and take advantage of the amazing and distant views. To the back of the house is the kitchen, larder and utility room that leads to the spacious garden room with large glazed doors onto the terrace.
The bedrooms are laid out over two floors. The master suite comprises a bedroom, bathroom and dressing room. There are three further bedrooms, bathroom and WC on the first floor and on the second a bedroom, bathroom and study.
Off the hall, steps lead door to a good-sized study.
The house is approached off the Wield Road through a large evergreen hedge to a gravel drive. Off the drive is a double garage and front door. There is a small side garden with a rose bed. A path leads around to the paved terrace in front of the house which in turn leads on to a level lawn. This slopes down to the main lawn. There are some attractive well stock formal beds and a vegetable garden. From a separate entrance are some storage sheds. The house has a tennis court, beyond which is a tree surrounded grass dell and a paddock.
Alongside the views which stretch beyond Winchester, the mature trees are magnificent, there is a cedar, beech (both green and copper) some further attractive conifers.
