The BNT said, “Set-back in its own beautiful and large cottage garden in the centre of St George’s, the Old Rectory is a two bedroom cottage with an extremely attractive interior that boasts spectacular original architectural features, including a cedar-paneled master bedroom.

“Built in or before 1699, the Old Rectory is one of the oldest houses in Bermuda. The cottage features great vernacular beauty and the entire structure is extremely architecturally significant. The Old Rectory is a main attraction at the Bermuda National Trust’s annual Christmas Walkabout.”

The property offers 1600 square feet of living space with a large cottage garden, air conditioning in master, updated kitchen with dishwasher, full laundry, parking, as well as historic and architectural features.

It is available Oct/Nov 2015, and if you would like more information, or would like to be put on the list to view the cottage in October, please contact Dorcas Roberts at 236-6483 x 216, or email dorcas@bnt.bm

    Wow, $2,850. How much would this rent for elsewhere? Seems to be that rents are/have crashed in the east end?

    • Renter says:

      From what I have seen, double that in a central parish.

        Yeah , a lot of people are erroneously hanging on to that dream that it’s still the good old days in real estate. They haven’t , or refuse to , reset their clocks and expectations yet .

    • serengeti says:

      And I have a feeling you would be equally negative about it if the rent were expensive.

    • Pamela L Flood says:

      These trust properties used to have a clause in the leases requiring them to be open to the public on certain days during the summer seasons. Don’t know if they still do but it might explain the ‘lower’ rents.

  3. During a walk-about in St. George’s held not too long ago the public were permitted to enter many of these old buildings; this particular cottage was one of many places to explore and may I say it was / is quite attractive to say the least…Now, as far as ghosts, that’s Tommy rot!
