Surely one of the finest privately owned historic residences in the area, lovingly and meticulously restored and extensively renovated in sympathy with its age and styling. The Old Rectory was thoughtfully designed in that the principal reception rooms and bedrooms overlook the garden and benefit from a Southerly aspect.
Situated in the centre of this sought after village and very close to the amenities of Beverley, the property is beautifully positioned in generous gardens approaching two acres which have mainly a Southerly aspect towards Walkington Church.
The extensive and fabulously presented accommodation has the benefit of a further, very recently renovated and contemporary styled detached two bedroom Carriage House which has great flexibility of use and offers a ground floor Master Bedroom with En-suite Bathroom.
The property is located in the very centre of this extremely popular East Yorkshire Wolds village which lies approximately two miles from the centre of Beverley with its extensive range of amenities and which is accessed over the Westwood Pastures.
The property is situated on the South side of East End (B1230) close to local amenities which include a Post Office and Village Grocer, three highly regarded Public Houses, Primary School and sporting facilities.
Walkington lies 46 miles East of Leeds, Humberside Airport 19 miles, Doncaster/Sheffield Airport 34 miles, York 28 miles and Hull 7.5 miles.
The Old Rectory is Grade II listed being of architectural and historic interest and is believed to date from the late 17th Century but probably with earlier origins. The house was largely rebuilt in 1810 and was subject to further additions and alterations in 1891.
