VENDOR INTERIVEW

“We had admired The Old Rectory for some years and had always hoped for the opportunity to own it. When it came on the market, the first thing that impressed us was the sense of space and the original heritage features that create a feeling of calm and warmth. Every room was generously proportioned, including the hall and the striking staircase. The house was built c.1895 and was sold into private ownership during the 1960s. Since then, we are just the fourth owner and the house came with original features intact, including many that are reminiscent of its history,” recall the current owners.

“The house needed significant modernisation when we got it. During our 8 years here, we have made a number of enhancements as well as restoring the original features, woodwork and the servant bell system. We also formed a large connecting doorway between the living room and the kitchen, offering a more open plan space as and when required.”

“The location has been ideal as we enjoy easy access to the town centre and the fast train service, yet we also appreciate the privacy and seclusion of the house when we come home. We love the River Thames, the Promenade, the Fort Gardens, St George’s Church, the small independent shops and cafés, the market, the pier, country parks and walks, in fact the list is endless and there is so much to do without getting into the car.”

“The back garden with its mature trees and shrubs, lawned area and tree house is the focal point for much of the summertime. It’s west facing so gets plenty of afternoon and evening sun. We enjoy entertaining and have held many of the kids’ birthday parties in the back garden, as well as wonderful family Christmases, dinner parties in the spacious dining room, and a constant stream of house guests.”

“We love every room in the house – each one is perfectly and generously proportioned and just seems to ‘work’. If pushed for a favourite, we’d go for the sitting room as a centre point for the family. It has offered us a versatile space from kids’ gymnasium to sunny reading room, winter garden and cosy fireside.”

“We’ll be very sad to part with this lovely family home. We’ll particularly miss the calm, the charm, the sense of heritage, the space, being in town and our neighbours dropping by.”
