This stunning property offers well-proportioned family living accommodation of significant charm and character. Commanding an enviable position overlooking the attractive village green to the front and south facing gardens overlooking the River Tees with fishing rights to the rear.


The Old Vicarage is a classic example of a Grade II listed Georgian country house which retains many original features including fine fireplaces, sash windows, decorative cornicing and picture rails, together with gardens and conservatory.

The spacious and classical reception hall links all of the ground floor living space and gives access to the cloakroom and to the rear gardens. The principal reception rooms are ideal for entertaining and include a fine drawing room with large feature sash windows with original shutters overlooking the gardens and conservatory, marble fireplace with open fire and ornate cornicing. The dining room is a stunning room for entertaining with its superb fireplace and views across the lawns. A sitting room with oak panelled wall, "Priest Hole" and fitted bookcases features a stone fireplace and also has access to the cellars. A morning room is ideal for informal entertaining and leads into the well fitted breakfast/kitchen with Aga that leads into the large hardwood timber conservatory with established vine. A large utility room with boot room and cloakroom have access into the garage and a separate staircase leads to a well-proportioned study and a separate store/hobby room.

A lovely Georgian staircase leads to a half landing with archway which leads to three bedrooms which all enjoy views over the gardens and open countryside and there are two bathrooms. There are two large double bedrooms to the front of the house which overlook the village green and a family bathroom. To the second floor are two further double bedrooms and a useful storage room.

The house is accessed via a crescent gravelled drive with double wrought iron gates. A separate drive leads to the triple garage with its attached workshops and outbuildings including a former stable and tack room. The mature gardens are primarily laid to formal lawns which are surrounded by some fine trees. There are well stocked flowering borders and a variety of shrubs, plants and trees. The gardens are south facing and an attractive stone flagged terraced area is a perfect place to enjoy 'al fresco' dining. There is an outside potting shed and the garden has steps at the rear leading to the River Tees and enjoys fishing rights.

The Old Vicarage is enviably located in the centre of this most desirable village and within walking distance to good local amenities. Gainford is a thriving village with local shops, tea rooms, butchers, hair salon, public house, theatre, doctor's surgery and a village school. It affords very convenient access to major travel routes; A1 (M), A66 Trans Pennine, East Coast Mainline, Durham Tees Valley Airport and both Newcastle and Leeds/Bradford Airports are within easy reach. The market towns of Barnard Castle, Darlington, Richmond and West Auckland are nearby and the area is particularly well served by state and independent schools.
