Dating from 1898, this imposing 8 bedroom Grade II listed former vicarage extends to around 4,143 Sq Ft, representing a truly unique and rare opportunity. Designed by architect Ernest Jones, well known for his 'high profile' country home commissions across England, the property is constructed of hammer-dressed buff sandstone with ashlar dressing under a Kerridge stone-slate roof.
Set within approximately 1.3 acres the property enjoys the most idyllic setting with commanding views over the surrounding countryside and towards White Nancy, a Grade II listed local landmark. Architectural details such as chamfered mullioned windows, Tudor style chimneys and gable bay windows combine to form a timelessly attractive exterior aesthetic. A studded 7-board front door opens into an entrance vestibule with cloakroom and w.c. to the right whilst off to the left is a spacious reception hall with log burning fire and attractive staircase with trellis style balustrade. There are 3 generously proportioned formal reception rooms accessed off the reception hall, all with fireplaces and views over the rear gardens. The kitchen, accessed off the hall and dining room, leads through to a large versatile room currently housing the boiler which in turn leads through to the utility room, pantry and larder. The cellar is accessed from outside.
To the first floor the part galleried landing leads to 4 double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a box room. There is a separate shower room, bathroom and w.c. to this floor. To the second floor there are a further 3 well proportioned bedrooms and a box room. Many of the bedrooms retain their original cast iron period fireplaces and enjoy elevated views over the gardens and countryside beyond.
A sweeping driveway provides extensive off road parking alongside the front gardens and leads to the detached garage. The property is positioned almost centrally within its plot with established gardens to all sides which are South facing and mainly laid to lawn to the rear. Mature trees form a woodland area to the left hand side.
