The Old Rectory is a Grade 2* listed property dating back to 12th Century. It has been much altered over time - all of which was unveiled after extensive research into historical records. The previous owner of the house had carried out some modernisation in the 1960’s but by the time the house was bought in 2012, it was in need of total refurbishment including new electrical and mechanical installations.

Snell David were asked to consider differing options for the layout of the house and the addition of a triple bay garage block. It was quickly realised that, as is the case with most young families, our clients require a large family kitchen / breakfast room which relates to the garden. Following many discussions and negotiations with the Conservation Officer , a scheme was finally submitted and approved for a two storey  wing to the rear which did not involve the removal of any valuable historical building fabric. The traditional design enables the rear of the kitchen to open up to the garden and an additional bedroom suite to be added to the first floor.

The clients have recently engaged Snell David to convert the existing thatched stable building to provide further ancillary accommodation.
