The house where the eccentric MP Jacob Rees-Mogg grew up is for sale – and it comes with two things that aspiring Mary Berry’s and aspiring Jeremy Clarkson’s will love
Previously marketed for £2.5 million ($3 million or €2.8 million) in April 2015, a Georgian former rectory at Hinton Blewett in Somerset is for sale once again for the much reduced price of £2 million ($2.4 million or €2.2 million). The Grade II listed residence, which was the childhood home of the somewhat eccentric Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, comes with not only a kitchen devoted to pastry creation but also a garage for upto ten cars.
Built in the 17th and 18th centuries and featuring unusual oversized 28-pane and 16-pane sash windows, The Old Rectory sits within enclosed gardens and has 5 reception rooms, 6 bedrooms, a playroom, cellars and 5 bathrooms.
For wannabe Mary Berry’s, there is not only a Smallbone kitchen with a four oven AGA but also a dedicated Smallbone pastry kitchen with a central island and preparation areas; for wannabe Jeremy Clarkson’s, there is a vast 56-foot by 28-foot heated garage with space for ten vehicles.
