Dating back to the early 1800's the property was built for the Rector William Harrison to provide a free school and a cottage for the Clerk to the Parish Council. At the turn of the 19th Century, the property became the social centre for the village when a new school was built and was known to be used for a mothers union, gun club and dance hall. Old Rectory Farmhouse was enlarged with a second storey addition around 1950 and sympathetically extended in 2008. Constructed of brick beneath a slate roof with wooden framed windows and a beautiful Virginia Vine to the front elevation, the property sympathetically combines many character features with all the convenience of modern family living. Features include beamed ceilings, oak internal doors, solid oak flooring and a hand cut local blue Hornton stone fireplace with 'Clearview' multi-fuel burner to the Sitting Room and an additional log burner to the dining room. The 'Cotteswood' of Chipping Norton kitchen is well fitted with a range of base and eye level units, granite work surfaces and fitted appliances and features a Rayburn set into a brick surround fireplace. The light and airy bedrooms enjoy an outlook across the gardens with the master bedroom benefiting from a generous Dressing Room and En-Suite Bathroom with white sanitary ware including whirlpool bath. No onward chain.
