A fine example of a late Victorian three-bedroom semi-detached character property with its handsome facade including twin gables and red brick dressings.
We understand The Old Rectory was a former bakery and subsequently acquired by Rushmon Homes in the 1990s when it was extended and remodelled to its current layout, prior to our clients purchasing in 2006. Following an eleven-year tenancy the property is now being offered to the open market with full vacant possession.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors extending to 98.5 sq.m / 1061 sq. ft. The ground floor comprises entrance lobby with coats cupboard housing electricity meter. A good size living room has a fireplace with wood burner and forms distinct sitting and dining areas with separate doors through to the kitchen as well as the family / play room. There is a small lobby off from the kitchen with larder cupboard, and opposite is a utility cupboard with space for a washing machine. The family / play room also provides a small ornamental fireplace with alcove shelving and double doors out to the garden patio. Upstairs there are three bedrooms (all with built-in wardrobes). The main bedroom has an ensuite shower with sink, and a separate main family bathroom.
Externally, there is a good size, part walled, rear garden measuring over 70ft in length with patio adjacent to the house, the remainder is lawned. The sale includes a recently installed tool shed. There is space to add a more substantial garden room / summer house, if required, which would still allow for decent garden space remaining. The front garden is enclosed by a low-level red stock wall with attractive wrought-iron railings.
Location: The property is located in the heart of West Molesey next door to historic St. Peter's Church; the oldest building in Molesey with its Medieval Watch Tower purportedly referenced in the Doomsday archives. Local amenities are in abundance as well as superb parkland, Thames towpath walks, and plenty of shops and restaurants in East and West Molesey High streets and the village area of Bridge Road. There is also Sainsburys Local a few minutes walk away.
