The Old Vicarage is an imposing Victorian former vicarage which dates back to 1876, when it was built for the Joicey family, and sits amidst established gardens with a fantastic paddock close to the sought-after Tyne Valley village of Newton. The property, which has rarely been on the market, retains an abundance of period features including panelled doors and doorways, sash windows, fireplaces, high ceilings, picture rails and cornicing, all now combined with a bespoke kitchen/breakfast room which forms the heart of the home and offers far-reaching views from floor-to-ceiling windows. The generously-proportioned accommodation is flooded with natural light from tall windows, with many rooms also being dual aspect and enjoying stunning views over the garden, grounds and open countryside beyond.
An open porch with glazed side windows and original encaustic tiled floor leads to the imposing original front door and a lobby, from which a half-glazed door opens into a magnificent encaustic tiled reception hall. The light and generously proportioned drawing room, with arched marble fireplace and gas fire, has a triple sash window and further large bay window offering dual-aspect garden views, together with a half-glazed door that leads out to a beautiful veranda. The adjacent dual-aspect dining room, which also has a marble fireplace, has doors from the hall and drawing room and offers an excellent formal room for entertaining. There are two further reception rooms, including a stunning bespoke-built library with feature glass cabinetry and a spacious study which has a large window overlooking the rear garden and beyond. The large kitchen/breakfast room provides a real heart to the home for everyday living. The kitchen is fitted with a range of bespoke painted units from Newcastle Furniture Company with complementary granite work surfaces and includes a large island, double Belfast sink, gas/induction hob and electric ovens, integrated dishwasher, warming drawer and larder fridge with space and plumbing for a large American-style fridge/freezer. There is ample space for a dining table and casual seating area in the extension which is flooded with light from a glazed lantern and tall windows; glazed doors lead out onto a flagstone terrace. A rear hall gives access to a spacious utility/boiler room and the garage, which has been equipped by the present owners as an impressive gym space with sprung floor and mirrored wall, whilst preserving the garage door mechanism, thus making it a flexible space which can easily be converted back to full garage use. There is a generous dry cellar with shelving for wine storage which is accessed from the reception hall. A large cloakroom with marble fireplace and complementary marble sanitaryware, including a full-height, wall-mounted bespoke cistern from Catchpole & Rye completes the ground floor accommodation.
An impressive original staircase leads from the hall to a half-landing, which has a window with decorative glazing, gives access to a dual-aspect bedroom via a charming bespoke-built 'bookcase door' with original panelled walls that is currently being used as a second study. The stairs continue to the spacious, high-ceilinged main landing. The principal bedroom, which enjoys elevated views of the garden and open countryside beyond from large windows to the front and side, benefits from a luxury en-suite that is Jack and Jill to the landing. The en-suite has a freestanding bath, separate shower, wash hand basin and WC, all Catchpole and Rye, with tasteful limestone underheated flooring throughout. There are four further bedrooms, all kingsize/doubles, one of which could easily provide an alternative principal bedroom, being of dual-aspect with an adjoining dressing room fitted with beautiful bespoke cabinetry featuring automatic lighting and a small marble fireplace. The remaining guest bedrooms are served by a spacious luxury bathroom fitted with a freestanding nickel and brass bath, separate shower, marble wash hand basin with bespoke vanity unit and WC, all Catchpole and Rye. The rear landing has a useful shelved linen cupboard and retains the original ladder and glazed access to the loft, which is very large and gives scope for development, if required. A further loft area offers more storage and is accessed by a fold-away loft ladder in another bedroom.
The Old Vicarage has a gravelled carriage driveway with stone pillared entrances that lead to a parking and turning area to the front of the house and the garage. The double garage benefits from power and light and has doors to the rear and main reception halls.
To the front of the house there are established shrubs and trees which offer privacy, while to the side and rear there is an expanse of lawn with further established planting and a sunken garden. The veranda and a large flagstone terrace provide areas to sit and enjoy the peaceful setting and take in the open views. There is an enviable tree house hidden amidst an established woodland area, which has been a source of excitement to adults and children alike!
The property further benefits from an adjoining paddock of around 3.58 acres, offering manageable grazing and making this a hugely attractive proposition for interested parties looking for an equestrian opportunity in a wonderful setting.
