Placed within secluded wrap around gardens is The Old Rectory, an exquisite detached Victorian residence offered with no onward chain, presenting elegant and wonderfully spacious interiors, up to seven bedrooms and a regal setting overlooking idyllic views towards Cannock Chase. Originally dating back to 1864, this former Rectory retains elegant original features throughout to include intricate coving, marble and granite fireplaces, panel doors and deep skirtings, with traditional shutters to most of the ground floor windows.

From the first floor landing, four bedrooms and a master dressing room are serviced by a spacious family bathroom, and the second floor offers three further bedrooms and walk in storage rooms presenting plenty of scope for conversion into additional bedrooms, self contained ancillary living or a home office space.
