A Grade II listed former rectory in Hepworth is on the market at a guide price of £1.65 million. 

The Old Rectory was built around a 17th century core, which is said to have stood on a moated site. In 1820, the property was extended and remodelled in a Georgian style to reflect the social standing of the rector. 

Today, The Old Rectory is a family home with lots of character, including sash windows and feature fireplaces. The property is set in 4.37 acres of grounds with a guest cottage, a converted barn and a number of outbuildings.
