PROPERTY SUMMARY The Old Vicarage is among the better examples of an impressive former vicarage, with its imposing central pillared porch flagged by ground floor bay windows. The elegant and extensive accommodation is arranged over three primary floors with 4173 sq ft of living space comprising; entrance hallway where the first thing to catch your eye is the wooden balustrade of the turning staircase which rises to the first floor, the recently redecorated drawing room and sitting room sit either side of the reception, there is also a separate cloakroom, conservatory, dining room leading to a bespoke fitted kitchen and utility room on the ground floor. The balustrade on the first floor galleried landing continues the theme of period elegance - the landing is of sufficient size to allow a study area or dressing area for the master bedroom and adjoining bathroom. There is a further refitted bathroom serving the other three bedrooms - adjacent to the study and staircase to the second floor where an imaginative conversion of the attic has created a study / play area and fifth bedroom with its own en-suite as well as plentiful eaves storage. Outside the former garage is now arranged as a gymnasium, the rear garden is enclosed with a decked area, five seat 'hot tub' with jet stream swim facility (can be bought by private negotiation), gated car parking and side pedestrian access. Being located within easy access to local shopping amenities, bus routes, recreation grounds and commutable road links, early internal viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
