The Old Rectory, located in the village of Bookham, in Surrey, is a wonderful Edwardian family home with accommodation over three well proportioned floors and boasts many original features such as high ceilings, fireplaces, wood floors, wood panelling, and a turned staircase rising two floors in old mellow pine. Many windows are original including an attractive rectangular bay window in the drawing room and a feature oval window in the family room. All of the bedrooms are doubles with fantastic views of the garden.
There is a subtle curved theme to the house, from the front door and the exquisite glazed inner door through to the various elegant internal archways throughout the interior. The entrance hallway has a warm, welcoming feel with the original quarry tiled floor and a fireplace with marble surround. The ground floor accommodation flows from here with steps down to a cloakroom area and external door to the garden. There are four principal receptions rooms: a pleasingly proportioned drawing room with double aspect windows and a fireplace; a dining room with stripped original floorboards and dado rail; study with oak floor boards and finely detailed curved wood panelling; family room with original built in bookcases and cabinets to the recesses plus a woodburner. The kitchen/breakfast room is split level with a range of wooden units and gray granite worktops plus matching breakfast bar and dresser. There is also a Falcon range cooker, a Siemens's stainless steel American fridge/freezer, and an integrated dishwasher. From this room, there is a door to the utility and a door to the swimming pool area with its Spa, Sauna and Steam room.
The central staircase with its wide treads and beautiful wooden balustrade rises gently to the first floor landing where there are four double bedrooms, all with built in wardrobe storage, with the master bedroom having its own walk-in dressing room area and en-suite bathroom. This floor has two further bathrooms both arranged as en-suites, but one which doubles as the family bathroom. On the second floor, there are three further double bedrooms, two with ornamental fireplaces, each with their own en-suite shower rooms and storage.
This is a great home with huge character offering a beckoning lifestyle in the Surrey countryside, a fantastic house for family living and for entertaining.
