Beautiful family home in sought-after location

The Old Rectory in Walberswick is an elegant house in a beautiful location close to the historic heart of the village.

Built in 1931, this spacious four to five bedroom home is situated in grounds extending to around three quarters of an acre and stands adjacent to the picturesque 15th Century parish church of St. Andrew.  The current owners of The Old Rectory have undertaken some refurbishment to create a beautiful family home with generously proportioned rooms while maintaining many of its original features including arts and crafts style windows and original fireplaces.

Shirley Keeble has lived at The Old Rectory since 2003 and says it was a property she always had an ambition to own when visiting the village.  “It was our ‘hopefully’ home until we were eventually able to buy it,” she said.  “It is a very happy house in a beautiful location.”

An outstanding feature of the home is a generous bespoke handmade kitchen by Henry Gordon Jones including a built-in china cabinet, an oil Esse range cooker which also provides hot water and heating, as well as built-in electric hob, oven, dishwasher and a double butler sink.  Double doors open out onto the rear garden.  The dining and sitting rooms have double aspects, making them light and airy, with a log-burning stove in the sitting room.

The four first floor bedrooms all feature interesting and varied views over The Old Rectory’s surroundings with the double aspect master bedroom enjoying outstanding views of the church.  Downstairs there is a double aspect family room, which also doubles as a guest bedroom.

The well-established gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of shrubs, hedges and trees.  The hedging allows the garden to be separated into different areas including a children’s play area.  Double gates lead to a shingle driveway and forecourt with ample parking.

Richard Brown from agents Flick & Son said: “The Old Rectory is a delightful and spacious family home in an envious location and really merits a viewing to appreciate its well appointed features and great surroundings.”
