Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Vicarage hasn't been on the market in over 60 years so here's your opportunity to be the next custodian of a slice of our architectural history, it's a splendid period house in a picturesque village setting. It's hard to choose, but here is a list of just some of our favourite things?

From the moment you cross the threshold there is a warm and welcoming feeling, this is a happy house which three generations of the vendors' family have been proud to call home.

The property is rich in character, it wraps itself around you - mullion windows, window seats, panelled reveals and some working shutters, a double entrance with decorated lintel and painted sundial above, there are old panelled doors, some with Suffolk latches, old oak floor boards, ceiling beams, picture rails and deep skirting boards. Adding a focal point there's a marble fireplace in the sitting room and stone fireplace in the dining room.

Historical connections - Historic England's Grade II schedule notes that it was the home of William Paley (1743 - 1805), philosopher, and utilitarian. Paley was educated at Giggleswick School, where his father was headmaster and went on to become the Archdeacon of Carlisle.

Potential - for many years it has been arranged as a four bedroom house and a one bedroom cottage although it could easily be reinstated as one property. There is also a cellar under part of the dining room, capable of upgrading.

Views - there's a lovely aspect at the front over the garden to the fountain and green. From the side and flat the aspect is towards the limestone crag in the distance.

Income stream - The cottage and flat to the rear above the garage are both currently let on Assured Shorthold Tenancies but would also be ideal as an Airbnb for passing walkers. You might also like to accommodate returning young adults or invite granny to come and stay!

Green fingers? Behind the front walls and railings there are attractive and well established gardens complete with flagged pathways and seating terraces, a vegetable garden and fruit trees.

Good outdoors space - there is a double garage, a double open fronted car port, an open fronted store/boat store and a small stone and slate garden store. There's also parking for several cars.
