Pianist and songwriter Toby Smith moved to this property in 2003, when he had left Jamiroquai after a decade of songwriting and playing.

He was part of the funk and acid jazz band from 1992 直到 2002, but left during their Funk Odyssey tour to spend more time with his family.

In an interview in 2003 he talked about leaving his current home, an unlisted vicarage in the Aylesbury area, to move to this property which had an outbuilding he could turn into a recording studio.

Smith later set up his own recording studio in Oxfordshire, turned his attention to producing and was also manager for The Hoosiers.

He died in April 2017, 老化的 46, 的 癌症, having battled the disease for six years.

The Old Rectory still has a recording studio used by the current tenant and a two-bedroom coach house for extra accommodation.

The main house has 5,360 sq ft of accommodation spread over four floors.

On the ground floor there is an entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, 饭厅, sitting room and lounge, while the lower ground floor has a utility room, boiler room and three other rooms that could be used for a number of purposes including a children’s playroom, wine cellar, gym or cinema.

Upstairs five bedrooms and three bathrooms are spread across the first and second floor.

Outside the gardens are about three acres and include a small lake and a heated swimming pool and a tennis court.

Mark Rimell from Strutt & 派克, who are selling the property, 说: “It is the quintessential English old rectory. The house has a lovely red brick facade and a very appealing symmetry about it.

It has got three really nicely proportioned reception rooms, a lower ground floor that is ideal for play rooms for children and that sort of thing, and good bedroom space.

The Old Rectory has very pretty grounds with a pond and a tennis court and swimming pool, both in need of some refurbishment.

You’ve also got the recording studio that Toby Smith developed himself and the converted stable block.

It’s a really nice package and a traditional family home. For a family wanting to move out of 伦敦, this would be perfection.

The house does need some work but you are starting with the most fantastic canvas.

It’s on the edge of the hamlet of Hoggeston which is just the church plus a couple of houses and cottages.

The hamlet is surrounded by rolling countryside, you’ve got views down to the Chilterns and it’s really good commuter territory for those working in London.
