An elegant Grade II listed period house set in mature grounds.
A charming former rectory of classic proportions standing in mature grounds, abutting fields, located in the peaceful village and community of Gosfield. Believed to date from the 17th century or earlier with 18th century and later additions and alterations, the house is constructed of timber frame under a tiled roof. Inside there are light filled rooms and all the reception rooms have high ceilings, of particular note being the sitting room with French doors opening out into the garden. There are four receptions rooms in total, plus a studio, traditional kitchen/breakfast room and utility room. To the first floor there are up to seven bedrooms although one of the rooms is accessed through a bedroom. To the rear of house and orientated with views over the grounds and beyond is a principal suite with en suite facilities.
The accommodation extends to 4,000 sq ft and has been improved by the current owners but offers further potential for enhancement. Externally the house provides a double garage with room above and in total stands in grounds of around 2 acres.
The Old Vicarage is approached over a wide gravel drive sweeping to the front of the house and to a double garage with a room above. The gardens provide a delightful setting for the house surrounded by many specimen mature trees. To the north of the house the gravel sweep is surrounded by shrub beds and herbaceous borders. To the east and south are further areas of lawn. Facing the house to the south east are two former stables behind which is a hard tennis court sheltered behind a high laurel hedge, and to the rear of the garage is a historic kitchen garden. All in around 2 acres.
Mains water, electricity and gas. Private drainage. Oil fired Aga.

I love the setting of this house, in its own mature gardens with lovely views across farmland and Gosfield Church.Karl Manning
