Property SummaryThe Old Rectory was completed in 1901 and thus is one of the last examples of a classic late Victorian rectory. Built of brick in a commanding position set well back from the lane, the house has all the expected period features such as sprung floors, solid doors, large sash windows, good fireplaces, picture rails and skirting boards. These are set within well proportioned rooms with large light windows to make the most of the views. The current owners have lived at the Old Rectory for many years and have ensured that it has remained a comfortable and happy family house.
The Old Rectory is situated just outside the village of Garway on the borders of Herefordshire and Monmouthshire amidst stunning countryside. The village itself has a Primary School, thriving Village Hall and highly popular Inn, The Garway Moon. A useful garage / village shop is one mile away in Broad Oak whilst Monmouth is a short drive and has all the expected facilities of an important County town including a Waitrose and Marks & Spencer. Monmouth also has exceptional Schools including the Haberdashers for Boys and Girls and the popular comprehensive. There are good leisure facilities which include the Savoy Cinema, Blake Theatre, leisure centres and a rowing club on the River Wye.
Communications are excellent with the A40 dual carriageway running through Monmouth and up to Ross and onto the M5, and South to the M4 and national motorway network.
Gardens and Grounds
The gardens are to three sides of the property with the North elevation having the large garage block and the former carriage house and stable, the latter now just a useful outbuilding with potential. To the front, lawns with laurel hedgerows, flanked by woodland and the drive, run from the gravelled parking area down past the former tennis court to a lower lawn. To the rear are orchards and kitchen gardens. The orchard includes various mature apple and pear trees, whilst a cordon apple splay is either side of a flagstone path. Eight raised vegetable beds are adjacent. Beyond the house is a large chicken run with a good paddock and a dew pond beyond. From here there are 360-degree views looking out to at least five Counties.
Mains water and electricity. Private drainage, oil fired central heating and Aga.
