The Old Rectory is a beautiful Georgian Estate nestled in the heart of the Surrey Hills and surrounded by 5 acres of private Italian style gardens and a further 3 acres of rolling fields.
The exterior of the property is typically Georgian with its symmetrical facade and attractive portico entrance. The grand entrance hall to the property is colourful and full of character. Off the hall is the formal dining room, and the drawing room. At the rear of the hall is the sitting room; a beautiful large room in a classical style with period features, open fire and triple bay window, and french doors which open out to the gardens at the rear.
A corridor with pretty painted mural walls lead to the oldest part of the house and to the butler's pantry. Beyond this is a further sitting room with large open fire and exposed beams and the house kitchen, which is filled with a wonderful array of pots and pans, antique furniture, and an original 1930s Aga cooker.
Outside the house, and perhaps even more striking than the interiors are the south facing gardens. A wonderful arrangement of Italianate style gardens lead from terrace to walled garden, to kitchen garden, through self built structures to the rose walk, and to rolling lawns with mature architectural planting. A restored glasshouse. There is even an L-shaped moat inspired by the gardens at Sissinghurst. There is nothing these gardens do not offer, and all just 1.5 hrs from central London by car.
