Listed village house two miles from Chelmsford city.
The Old Vicarage is listed Grade II of Architectural or Historical Interest and an extract from the listing states: "Grade II*. A good early C18 red brick house with a parapet on 4 sides, swept up at the corners and with a moulded and dentilled brick cornice on the north, east and west fronts. 2 storeys, attics and cellars." The house has been in the same ownership for 37 years, the current owner having taken it on from the Church in April 1986.
The house enjoys substantial and versatile accommodation with generously proportioned rooms with high ceilings. There are four large reception rooms including a substantial reception room linked to the utility area at the rear of the house, which would make for an independent annexe, having an external doorway (subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents).
There are eight bedrooms over two floors serviced by bath or shower rooms.
A vestibule opens into the substantial hallway which runs the full depth of the property and provides access to three generous reception rooms and the kitchen/breakfast room which sits at the rear of the property overlooking the gardens. Linked to the kitchen is a large utility room, bathroom and rear reception room. This area would make an ideal annexe facility. There are four generous first floor bedrooms, three en suite, with stairs to a second floor to four further bedrooms and a shower room.
A substantial courtyard parking area in front of the house is approached through a broad brick-walled entrance. To the left is a large plot laid to lawn and beyond is access to storage outbuildings divided into three areas. The gardens at the rear are walled, predominantly lawned and include a scattering of mature trees. Immediately behind the house is a raised terrace, ideal for al fresco dining. The gardens offer a great deal of privacy with the plot in all extending to about three quarters of an acre.
Mains water, electricity and drainage. Gas-fired central heating.

Having grown up in Great Baddow, I have always admired this landmark house. It's a real privilege to be involved in the sale.Stephen White
