About this property

  • Situated in a private elevated position close to the centre of this picturesque village, The Old Vicarage is believed to date from the 16th century, with later19th century additions, the property has evolved significantly throughout its history, receiving a significant extension on the southern flank showcasing some impressive Victorian architecture, topped off by a recently built single storey garden room. A neighbouring brick annex was built by the owners to serve as an inviting garden room and home office but could be easily adapted to form a self contained annex.

    Available to purchase for the first time in over 40 years, this well-proportioned and much loved family home extends to around 2368 sq ft, arranged over two floors. There are two sizeable reception rooms on the ground floor, the sitting room being an amalgamation of three rooms and the dining room more classily proportioned with high ceilings and large sash windows overlooking the surrounding garden and a trap door opening to a useful wine cellar. Complimenting these is a traditional kitchen/breakfast room and separate utility/scullery. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, all with fabulous views of the surrounding countryside and two bathrooms. In addition there are several useful outbuildings/stores and a double garage with workshop/store to the rear.

    The property stands close to the southern edge of the larger than average garden which has been divided into sections; a pretty walled garden alongside the entrance driveway, with central lawn and mature hedge/shrub border dotted with specimen trees and a cedar greenhouse with its own water and electric supply, a stone patio extending around the edge of the buildings and around to a productive vegetable garden to the north which gives way to a sizeable block of mixed woodland dissected by paths and open glades. In all the grounds extend to around two acres and provide a wonderful playground for children and keen gardeners alike.

    This is a rare opportunity to purchase a property in a prime village location, which has been well maintained but would now benefit from a degree of modernisation and redecoration.

I was charmed by The Old Vicarage, situated in a prime location, with impressive privacy, the property has endless scope for the new owners to create a fabulous forever home.
