A spectacular former Grade II listed Vicarage
The property provides three well-proportioned reception rooms and four double bedrooms and a single, featuring elegant period details and stylish décor throughout. There are high ceilings, large sash windows, stripped wooden floorboards and original fireplaces, all helping to create a thoroughly pleasant environment. The front entrance opens onto a welcoming reception hall with exposed floorboards and ornate cornicing and plasterwork detailing. There are three wonderful and well proportioned reception rooms to the ground floor, all of which have dual aspects. To either side of the reception hall are the handsome sitting room and the formal dining room, with the sitting room featuring a cast-iron fireplace and chandelier light fitting. The formal dining room features an original open fireplace and exposed wooden flooring, while the comfortable study provides an ideal space in which to relax as a family, with its attractive fireplace with a tiled surround. The splendid kitchen and breakfast room has hand built, base and wall level, antique pine wooden units (from the Manchester Cotton Mills) , a butler sink and a range cooker, as well as space for a breakfast table for informal dining. There is also an impressive fireplace, with a gas wood effect stove, and the original servants bells. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms of similar proportions, with one of the bedrooms benefitting from an en suite shower room. There is also a large family bathroom with stylish modern fittings, including dual washbasins, a freestanding bath tub and a walk-in shower. The first floor also has a smaller room, which could be used as a dressing room or study, or as a fifth bedroom if required.
Outside, the property is approached along a gravel driveway with a garage and parking for several vehicles. There is a fully enclosed rear garden mainly laid to lawn with a rockery feature using materials from the original old church, mature trees and hedging. A beautiful mature vine covers a lovely pergola, encompassing an outside dining area over a patio area which stretches the length of the rear of the property.

This is a lovely former Old Rectory, it's steeped in local history and is fondly remembered by the village community. It's a rare opportunity to buy such a property.James Eastaway
