The Old Vicarage

A handsome, Grade II Listed Georgian Vicarage dating from 1840. The property offers classically proportioned living accommodation and makes an excellent multi-generational family home having the benefit of an interconnected, but self-contained, one bedroomed annex. The property has been sympathetically maintained and improved and specific features of note include a superb bespoke breakfast kitchen; the heart to this home, an orangery which enjoys the benefit of the wrap around garden and open aspect to fields, and a cellar which could be used as a gym or cinema room. A truly charming home.

Main House

The Old Vicarage is approached via a pillared entrance with wrought iron gates opening to a drive which sweeps up to the main front door. This has stone columns each side and opens into a porch with a mosaic tiled floor which in turn opens to the main reception hall which is spacious with a spindle staircase to the first floor, ground floor cloaks/WC and from here there is access to three principal reception rooms and the breakfast kitchen. Two of the reception rooms overlook the front driveway and gardens, and are currently used as a dining room and sitting room, the third is a large and more formal drawing room overlooking the side gardens. The kitchen is very much the heart of this home and has been completely redesigned and finished to an exceptionally high standard in hand made oak units, with painted frontage and very well thought out layout. There are two electric ovens set into the chimney breast where the Range would have been at one time with slide away doors and drawers below; the island unit is set centrally and has granite work surfaces with an induction hob and extractor canopy above and an oak breakfast bar; there are a range of integrated appliances which include an inset double sink unit with a boiling water tap, microwave, and wine fridge. Other well designed features include a curved coffee cupboard and an illuminated double larder cupboard. From here there is access through to the conservatory, and an inner hall with access to the utility room, study/gym and the interconnecting door to the annexe is here. The orangery occupies a lovely position on the rear of the property which has recently been refurbished with argon filled low energy, solar controlled glass. From here French doors open out to the gardens and there is a staircase leading down to the cellar which could be used as a gym or perhaps a cinema room and there is an excellent wine store beyond

To the first floor the galleried landing has a large window allowing plenty of natural light into this area, from here there is access to four double bedrooms, a dressing room, the house bathroom and a washroom/WC. The master bedroom suite has a marble fire surround with a Georgian style inset and feature open grate. From here there is access through to an en-suite bathroom which has a free standing slipper bath, step-in shower, wash hand basin and high level WC. There is a separate dressing room with a full range of fitted wardrobes to each side. The house bathroom/WC is a modern suite with a white double ended bath, step-in shower cubicle, pedestal

wash hand basin and low level WC.

The Annexe

The annexe enjoys its own independent entrance hall which has arched windows overlooking the central courtyard and from here there is access to a triple aspect living room with fireplace, double bedroom with built-in wardrobes, kitchen with built in appliances and a bathroom/WC. There is an interconnecting door which connects to the inner hall of the main house which eventually leads to the breakfast kitchen.


The property occupies a plot extending to around a third of an acre and is accessed via wrought iron gates to a gravelled driveway and turning area to the side of the property. The garden here is laid to lawn with a hedged perimeter and mature shrub beds with a rose covered arch and gate which opens through to the rest of the garden which wraps beautifully around the side of the building, the orangery, and enjoys open views over fields to the rear. There is a flagged terrace immediately outside the orangery for alfresco dining. In addition, there are raised allotment beds, garden shed, greenhouse and a chicken coup. There is a central courtyard which is a lovely spot for morning coffee. In addition, there are two separate garages.


We are advised that the central heating is oil fired and in addition, there are solar panels.
