General - It is rare for a period house with so much potential to come to the market in the area. The Old Rectory is a property of considerable character in a beautiful setting adjacent to the 11th Century village Church. The house which has been in the ownership of the same family for over 60 years is believed to date from the 18th Century with additions over the years the most recent being the annexe in the 1960s. The grounds extend to 0.65 acres and there is approximately 3400 square feet of living space excluding a range of useful outbuildings.
The house does now require substantial renovation and updating but there is potential to create a magnificent country house with or without an annexe or indeed further develop the property subject to the usual local authority consents.
Location - The property is located within the delightful and exclusive village of Aston Flamville and although it does not have its own amenities the village of Burbage is a short distance away offering a wide range of amenities including shops, schools, restaurants, sports clubs etc. There is a primary school and high school in Burbage and Market Bosworth, the historic market town is home to one of the area's leading private schools.
