About this property

  • Built around the middle of the 19th century this is an extremely comfortable house with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. As one would expect with a property of this status and age there are good ceiling heights, well proportioned rooms with large windows and very attractive period details throughout.

    On the ground floor, there are three good reception rooms leading off the main entrance hall. The rear hall, which has an impressive and original slate floor, leads to the large kitchen/ breakfast room with Aga, office, laundry and various stores. There are two cellars; the first is accessible from the rear hall and the second from outside in the driveway. On the first floor there are five good bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms.

    The house is approached by a gravel drive where there is ample space for parking and turning several cars. The established and private gardens are mainly to the south, where there are large areas of lawn, mature flowerbeds, and a particularly magnificent cedar of Lebanon tree. To the north of the main house is a former coach house which is currently arranged as a garage and storage on the ground floor with a large open plan studio room at the first floor.

    In the past, planning permission has been granted for this to be converted into ancillary residential accommodation, however, this has now lapsed. To the west is the heated swimming pool.

I love the feel of The Old Vicarage, a classical period house with great charm and character, but unspoilt. Importantly, the gardens and grounds enhance the setting and provide a lovely backdrop to this elegant house.
