About this property

  • The Old Vicarage has most handsome stone elevations under a slate roof and is believed to date from the 18th Century, with Victorian additions. The house has light and spacious accommodation including a good size reception hall with stripped wood floor, drawing room with bay window and fireplace, sitting room, dining room and large family kitchen/ breakfast room with inglenook and AGA as well as double doors to the terrace.

    On the first floor are four bedrooms with three bathrooms and a second floor with a sitting room, kitchenette, shower room and two further bedrooms. Many of the rooms retain period features including window shutters, exposed floorboards and exposed beams.

    Outside

    The gardens are a major feature of the property and are almost entirely enclosed by pretty stone walls. To the front a lawn is dissected by a stone path to the front door. To the rear the kitchen spills out onto a large terrace on the south west elevation beyond which is the main lawn with mature borders with the church as the backdrop.

    There are some fine trees dotted around the gardens. Separate walled garden including a small orchard and kitchen garden and outdoor swimming pool with recently fitted air source heat pump faces almost due south. A part shared driveway on the east leads to a gravelled parking area with a garage, store, cloakroom and pool room.

I particularly like the walled garden, the perfect spot to soak up the sun around the swimming pool
