The Setting 
The property stands at the end of a long gravel driveway which begins at a pair of fully automated ornate metal gates and continues through an arching "tunnel" of laurel trees. As you emerge and bear to the right, the house comes into view, framed by a beautiful old beech tree. It's hard not to be taken aback by the stature and symmetry of the house upon its raised terrace, and the tranquillity of the mature and secluded gardens in which it stands.

Ground Floor 
The house is entered the original Georgian panelled door, which has a pilaster case with open pediments and an ornate fanlight over. You are then greeted with an impressive central reception hallway, off which all principal rooms radiate. To the right, the formal drawing room can be found, which features an authentic Louis XV white marble fireplace, picture rail and elaborate ceiling rose. This room offers dual aspect views through shuttered sash windows and south facing French doors to the beautiful gardens and terrace that surround the Old Vicarage. To the left, the dining room features the original herringbone parquet wood floor, original fitted cupboards with recessed glass display cabinets over, a period fireplace with cast iron inset and an ornate ceiling rose. The snug also contains a wealth of period features, including an elaborate cast iron fireplace with slate surround, shuttered sash windows, picture rail, decorative ceiling rose and original cupboards with arched...

First Floor 
The beautiful original Georgian staircase leads to the spacious landing where you are immediately greeted by the large double height ceiling and a graceful Georgian arch. There are four well-proportioned bedrooms, one with an en suite and many with cornice work, ceiling roses and original shuttered sash windows. A separate shower room and a further family bathroom with very large Jacuzzi bath, both with tiled walls and sash windows, and from which the considerable and partially boarded attic space can also be accessed. The family bathroom was originally the fifth bedroom, and potential exists to revert it back to bedroom use.

Outside 
The Old Vicarage stands beautifully in approximately 1.2 acres of well maintained grounds. Well hidden from the Barton Road behind dense wall of mature trees and shrubs giving security and complete privacy to the house and gardens. Entry to the property is through automated electric-gates which lead directly access an impressive tree-lined driveway leading up to the house. The spectacular mature gardens provide a wonderful year-round setting to this fabulous home and include expansive lawns, mature shrubs and borders, sweeping drive, extensive parking and a large beautiful pond with privacy in all directions. A raised antique York flagstone patio area to the East affords a perfect, sheltered yet sunny spot for breakfast and lunch. Afternoons and evenings are best enjoyed sat upon the terrace or beside the large pond with the beautiful Beech tree providing shade if required.

Outbuildings 
Situated in the grounds are a range of traditional outbuildings, the largest of which is a barn dwelling (the former Church Hall), which currently has planning permission in place for self-contained living or Granny-flat conversion. This offers fantastic potential to add to the existing accommodation. There is a further detached garage (the former carriage store and stables), plus several other outbuildings currently used for storage and an outside gardeners' WC.

Development Potential 
The planning authorities have also approved in principle the possibility of a substantial extension to the property. Provisional architect's sketch plans have been prepared and are available for inspection.

It's been wonderful to live somewhere which feels so private and hidden away yet is in the middle of a lively village.
