Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Delightful and substantial former vicarage dating from 19th Century occupying a secluded but highly convenient position in a much favoured parish on the edge of the city.

Believed to date from around 1875 the house is not listed and occupies a secluded position at the end of its long drive and stands in some 4 acres of mature gardens and grounds. An important and significant period family home, Frere House combines convenience with a semi-rural highly favoured setting with generously proportioned and well planned accommodation. The house was re-roofed about 6 years ago and although some updating might be desirable, the building has been well cared for by the present owners who have been in residence for many years. The spacious reception hall is a welcoming introduction to this fine home from which an easy turning staircase rises to the upper floor. Both the main reception rooms focus on attractive fireplaces one with a Jetmaster open grate and have plaster cornices, shuttered windows, display bookcases in one and window seats, the low sills affording lovely garden views. The large kitchen/breakfast room with its lofty beamed ceiling incorporates a gas fired Aga and the cellar houses the modern gas fired central heating boiler. The spacious and well lit landing serves 5 / 6 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, one of the bedrooms could adapt to being a dressing room if required, and the inner landing gives access to a secondary staircase. On the second floor there is a large play or hobbies room and stores. All the rooms have a private and pleasant outlook over the garden and grounds and the master bedroom and attic have stunning and far-reaching views across the paddock.
