About this property

  • This handsome double fronted Victorian house was built in 1863, formerly the old vicarage for St Michael's church. It is beautifully presented and positioned on the edge of Winterbourne Earls in a conservation area. The current owners added an extension to the kitchen and extensively updated the house over the years.

The drawing room has a large bay window, fireplace and French doors leading to the conservatory. The dining room is adjacent and shares similar proportions with a matching bay window looking out to the front of the house. The library offers built in alcove bookcases, a woodburning stove surrounded by a marble mantelpiece and duel aspect windows overlooking the garden. A guest WC is off the hallway with stairs leading to the cellar.

    The kitchen has been extended to create a generous breakfast room. There are plenty of floor and wall mounted cupboards with granite surfaces and an island with a solid wood and granite worktop. A gas Aga takes central stage with the addition of an electric oven and a hob for the summer months. The appliances are integrated and there is a large butlers sink. French doors with side lights lead from the breakfast room to the terrace. The utility is accessed from the kitchen and houses the washing machine and the tumble dryer under the counter.

What I love about this house is the unspoilt fabric of the main rooms, full of character, with the very practical aspect of modern day living. The party barn and home office are superb as well.
