Tenure: Freehold

The Old Vicarage is a most appealing and Grade II Listed detached house located in the heart of this popular village. The main part of the house was built in the middle of the 19th century although had earlier origins, principally with stone elevations beneath a slate roof. Many original features are retained including sash windows with working shutters, both on the ground floor and first floors and many of the original fireplaces remain throughout the property. The accommodation is arranged over two floors with the main areas featuring traditional high ceilings and much natural light through sash windows. Former single story outhouses have been converted into a most useful utility/boot room and a generous study which could also be used as a ground floor bedroom. The property also features a substantial cellar which is sub-divided into useful storage areas and a games room. At the front of the plot is a most useful detached former coach house which provides conversion possibilities for ancillary accommodation to the main house or potentially as letting accommodation (subject to the usual consents). Please note that there is no onward chain involved with the sale of this property.

The Old Vicarage is approached through wooden gates onto a circular tarmacadam driveway that widens at the front of the house and encompasses a lawned area. The front garden is enclosed by walling and fencing and is planted with an abundance of shrubs, climbers and perennials along with mature specimens of Holm Oak, Yew, Maple and Holly to name just a few. The driveway additionally leads to a detached two storey Coach House that is currently being used as a garage and store.

A metal gate and fence leads from the front to the side garden which is mainly laid to lawn and again, borders planted with a variety of shrubs and climbers. An arched pergola leads to the rear garden which opens out into a lawned area edged at the rear by a well-stocked herbaceous border and again, the whole garden is planted with mature shrubs, climbers and trees that include apples and fig. To the rear of the house is a paved terrace area that gives ample space for seating and al-fresco dining. There is also a most useful utility area that is hidden from the main garden for composting etc. and a woodshed.
