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.
