By their very nature, rectories don’t come on to the market very often, and 3 Rivington Glebe is a particularly well restored example.

The property is the principal part of a former Georgian rectory dating back to the 1800s.  Built from mellow Cotswold stone, it has been renovated extremely well to create a fine home.

With well-proportioned rooms and classic high ceilings, the period features have also been retained including stone mullions, open fireplaces, large sash windows complete with secondary glazing, original shutters and ornate plasterwork.

The property provides you with a reception hall, kitchen/dining room, a light and elegant drawing room, utility/cloakroom, a master bedroom, second en-suite bedroom, bathroom, guest bedroom suite with dressing area and bathroom.

There’s also an easy to maintain courtyard garden for entertaining, a garage and parking.

Little Compton is on the border of Gloucestershire and Warwickshire and equidistant between Moreton-in-Marsh and Chipping Norton.  It is also handy for Daylesford Farm shop and Soho Farmhouse.

Note to editors:

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are located in the heart of England and within the counties of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Wiltshire.  It is the largest designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales, and very roughly starts to the east of Gloucester and Cheltenham in the west, runs up to just below Evesham in the north, includes parts of West Oxfordshire where Burford is known as the Gateway to the Cotswolds, and south to the Cotswold Water Park a few miles beyond Cirencester, the former Roman city and Capital of the Cotswolds.

With excellent road and rail communications - London, Bristol and Birmingham are all within an hour by train - the area has become popular with those moving out of the city or wanting second homes to escape at weekends.
