An exceptional Victorian Vicarage in a charming village setting with excellent transport links and beautiful grounds.
The Old Vicarage is thought to date back to around 1860, and offers a substantial family home modernised by the present owners to an exacting standard.
It offers generous living accommodation with grand reception rooms and large bedroom suites, all encapsulating a wealth of character and original features.
Approached via a gated entrance, a gravel driveway flanked by well tended lawns sweeps in front of the house. A gabled entrance porch and magnificent oak entrance door opens into the very impressive reception hall, with a central fireplace
and attractive tiled flooring. From here there is access to the principal living accommodation, including a grand drawing room of superb proportions, an elegant bay fronted dining room
and a welcoming sitting room with pleasant views across the front lawns and entrance approach.
The kitchen and breakfast room are found on the opposite side of the reception hall, partly open plan with a central fireplace dividing the two. The kitchen is appointed in antique style handmade oak units with a Lacanche Cote D'or' range
cooker and integrated appliances. The breakfast room offers much space and houses the original servants bells, with flagstone flooring extending into both rooms. To complete the ground floor there is a separate utility room and rear hallway
with a secondary staircase to the first floor. Stairs lead down to a cellar.
The first floor offers 5 bedroom suites, with the potential of a further two bedrooms being put into place. The principal bedroom is particularly large with a bay window affording delightful garden and woodland views. There is an en suite bathroom complete with a claw-legged bath and twin wash
hand basins set into a marble topped vanity unit. A further
bedroom is serviced by a large en-suite showerroom. The remaining bedrooms share the use of a family bathroom and separate shower room, all benefitting from Victorian fireplaces and pleasant outlooks.
The property sits in grounds of approximately 2.25 acres, split between lawned formal gardens and woodland. The front garden is principally laid to lawn with a variety of mature
shrubs, trees and flower bed borders. A stone wall separates the fruit garden, whilst to the rear, areas of lawn lead to the woodland and tennis court beyond.
There are a range of stone outbuildings to the eastern boundary, forming the original stables and 2 coach houses. They offer much potential subject to the relevant permissions, with a separate access already in existence to the public highway.
