Bedrooms: 8
The Court is a stunning and recently restored family home. Believed to have been originally built in the early part of the 18th Century as a Rectory for the adjacent St Marys Church, one of the oldest churches in the area. Latterly run as a nursing home, which ran into disrepair, the current owners purchased the property some 10 years ago and set about a complete restoration of the house, returning it into the fine family home you see today.

Whilst the overall accommodation is generous it feels both usable and comfortable.

Built as a statement to the local community, the house is blessed with a plethora of period features, many of which remain today. The house is also broad, with an abundance of recently refurbished windows, many of which are floor to ceiling. This gives the house a light and pleasant feel throughout with a convivial layout, great for entertaining or intimate family gatherings alike.

With such large front and rear gardens the house enjoys surprisingly good and private views from both angles, given its central town location.

The house has a wonderful entrance hall, which acts as the centrepiece to the three reception rooms as well as the 'eat in' kitchen and adjacent dining room. All of the principal rooms to the ground and first floor enjoy fine views over the rear gardens as well as abundant light throughout.

Surprisingly for a Grade ll* Listed building there are five en-suite bedrooms to the first floor, as well as a standalone bedroom and bathroom.

The top floor is currently a walk-in loft and self-contained annexe (accessed internally or externally) albeit this could be enlarged if more space was needed in the annexe.


The gardens are a real surprise in such a convenient town location. The front has recently been re-laid with composite resin bond, creating a seamless hardwearing finish. It is an in/out style drive with electric gates and ample parking for numerous cars. The owners have also installed 2 Tesla Powerwalls, which greatly reduce the electricity cost for the house. There is also a third access, convenient for work vehicles etc. A more recently constructed double garage is accessible from the front.

The rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn with three distinct zones. There is a large patio, which runs along the rear of the house and is ideal for dining. The bulk of the remainder is level and suited to family life and there is a mature orchard to the rear.
