The Old Vicarage extends to approximately 3000 sqft and offers an impressive array of individual and charming features, coupled with a rich and interesting history.
The Old Vicarage displays charming accommodation at every turn and manages to retain much of the buildings original character. Having remained under The Church Commissioners ownership until 1975, The Old Vicarage was subsequently sold at auction and transformed into this most wonderful family home.
The discerning purchaser is first greeted by a solid oak doorway, which opens to reveal a magnificent entrance hallway – which acts as a centrum to the entire ground floor. Progressing further into the property, this delightful home begins to provide a glimpse of its most charming history. A formal sitting room displays a superior bay window that incorporates ‘French Style’ patio doors that provide access to the extensive grounds beyond. The sitting room further opens onto the separate dining room, which in turn leads to the delightful family room that embraces a sunny south facing aspect across the mature gardens. Further ground floor accommodation includes an attractive breakfast kitchen boasting a gas fired aga, a useful store room and guest W.C.. Leading from the entrance hallway, a solid oak staircase provides access to all the first-floor accommodation. The master bedroom features patio doors that lead to a private roof terrace where a southern and open aspect can be thoroughly enjoyed. There are four further good size bedrooms and two well-appointed bathrooms. A additional smaller stairwell between the ground and first floor is located towards the rear of the property and is thought to have been utilised by the house servants during the days of church ownership.
The grounds of The Old Vicarage extend to approximately one acre and are approached via a shared driveway which leads down the side of the property to a detached double garage. The gardens of this home lay predominately to the side and rear and have been carefully planned and landscaped with many mature plants, trees and hedges which all ensure a wonderful sense of privacy. A stone terrace, accessed directly from the family room, enjoys a sunny south facing aspect and provides an ideal space for al fresco dining. There are several further out houses which can be employed for a variety of purposes, as well as a full sized and functional tennis court.
