Inside Jacob Rees-Mogg’s idyllic former family home for sale with a price tag of £2.75m

Jacob Rees-Mogg’s former family home is for sale with a price tag of £2.75m. The Rees-Mogg family moved to the idyllic Somerset country in 1978, giving the future Tory MP and Cabinet minister a luxurious home to grow up in.

The eight-bedroom property in the postcard town of Hinton Blewett, has also recently been home to om Alexander, the CEO of Orange and T-mobile and the founder of Virgin Mobile. He lived in the Grade II listed property for 20 years, even renting it out for a year to Irish pop band The Corrs.

The Old Rectory is only five miles from Bath and Bristol, with Bristol International Airport only around 10 miles away. The property has been renovated over the years, with the current owners spending around £750,000.

The plumbing, alarm systems, basements, and gutters have all been updated to keep them running efficiently. The previous owners have also added luxurious extras throughout the property.

New bathrooms have been installed along with a heated indoor pool and two new two-bedroom apartments. The L-shaped pool stretches seven meters, reaching a depth of 1.2 meters. It includes an electric retractable cover, toilets, changing rooms, Wi-Fi speakers and even a mirrored ceiling.

The Georgian period house also has six bathrooms, four or five reception rooms, and a kitchen and patisserie. Along with the two new two-bedroom apartments on the top floor, there is another self-contained luxury two-bedroom apartment in the former coach house.
