    About this property

    • The Old Vicarage is an elegant and beautifully appointed Georgian family home, built originally as the vicarage for St Peter's Church, situated directly opposite. The Grade II-listed property was built in 1720 and has later additions built in 1840, and has character features including panelled doors, a lattice porch with overlight. Internally there are picture rails and original cast iron fireplaces. The gracious home is the ideal family residence, with large formal and informal rooms perfect for entertaining, plenty of space upstairs for visiting guests and large gardens where dogs and children can play. The outbuildings also present a great opportunity for conversion, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

      The accommodation extends to about 2500 sq ft over three floors, with two formal reception rooms at the front including a sitting room and dining room. The kitchen has space for a farmhouse table and has an adjoining pantry, leading to a garden room at the front, a utility room and a WC. Upstairs there is a bedroom with en suite shower room, three further bedrooms (with one currently used as a study) and a family bathroom, plus a bedroom and a sitting room on the second floor.

      The outbuildings attached to the house include two garages, an open car port and a garden store, with lots of private parking on the gravel driveway to the front which is accessed by wrought iron gates. The gardens are attractively landscaped in a cottage style with plenty of shrubs, flowerbeds and mature trees, all of which helps to make the space feel wonderfully secluded.
