Heavenly spot for handsome rectory
ON THE MARKET
Here’s a rare opportunity to acquire a handsome Grade II Georgian former rectory with extensive gardens in a village location five miles from Ashford. The accommodation includes three reception rooms, farmhouse kitchen with Aga, four-room cellar, cloakroom, spacious landing, four double bedrooms (one en suite), family bathroom, garage and extensive gardens. Meadows was a rectory and much of the detail is typical of the later part of the 18th century including high ceilings and tall sash windows – some with internal shutters. The house has splendid views over the gardens and surrounding meadows towards the Norman church. Most of the rooms have deep skirting boards, elegant fireplaces and spacious dimensions. There is a large cellar which extends to four rooms. The house forms the principal wing of a larger property and despite its enormous appeal still offers considerable potential. On the western side is a garden with lawn, fruit trees and shrubs. Next to the house is a paved terrace with a gate leading to the back garden. The gardens extend beneath the trees to a wild garden enclosed by a further variety of mature trees and woodland. For more details contact the agent on 01233 506220.
