    About this property

    • The Old Vicarage is an impressive period home with attractive half tile hung elevations occupying a private, semi-rural position with glorious gardens. The property has a rich and interesting history, records show a dwelling on the site dating from circa 1450 and the timbers of the original house can be seen both inside and in the roof space. The oldest section of the house is the central portion with a Georgian extension to the east side and more recently the Victorian extension forming the grander, elegant rooms of The Old Vicarage.

      The porch leads to a welcoming entrance hall which extends directly through to the garden. To the right, there is a guest cloakroom and two reception rooms, both with large bay windows and beautiful open fireplaces. The main reception is a classical room, light and airy with a southerly double aspect view over the gardens. The kitchen with its traditional fitted wooden cabinetry has a gas fired AGA and integrated appliances including a Smeg hob, AEG electric oven and integrated fridge/freezer as well as a bay window overlooking the garden. A door then leads through to a well-planned boot room with double doors to the garden, a pantry and larder with convenient access to the front of the house. The family room leads through to a laundry room. There is a useful side access and rear staircase which provides good flexibility to the use of this part of the house.

      An impressive principal suite can be found on the first floor comprising a beautiful bedroom with a double aspect view over the garden and a generous sized bathroom with walk-in shower, bath, WC and built-in storage. There are four further bedrooms with period features, three of which enjoy the pleasant southerly aspect across the gardens. They are serviced by two family bathrooms.

      The Old Vicarage is set in spectacular gardens and grounds extending to approximately 2 acres and there are a number of walks accessible directly from the house. The woodland area is underplanted with many natural species including an array of spring flowers, while the formal garden is thoughtfully landscaped with herbaceous borders, a pond and an attractive vegetable garden. Notable features in the garden include an original well and a separate orchard. A large private paved terrace wraps around the house leading to the level lawn.

      To the front is a gravel driveway offering ample parking and a two-storey oak-framed open bay car port with an attached store. Stairs to the side lead to a versatile studio room above with a shower room and separate WC which is ideal for guest accommodation. There are a number of outbuildings, including a period workshop, three sheds and a Victorian style greenhouse.

    I love the proportions of this beautiful home and the combination of a 14th century home with Victorian and Georgian additions. The garden and the privacy are a popular offering.
