Property description

The Old Vicarage is a stunning example of Victorian architecture which has been lovingly updated and modernised by the current owner, who has owned it for nearly 20 years. An 8 bedroom country retreat with exceptional and flexible living space benefits from privacy and seclusion behind the electric wrought iron gates and is set in around half an acre of gardens. All doors and windows have been replaced which now makes the Vic a little more modern, draught free and yet still maintaining its Victorian roots. All downstairs rooms beneft from high ceilings and beautifully crafted dado rails in all the min rooms.


The Old Vicarage is approached through wrought iron electric gates accessing a large blocked driveway allowing parking for numerous vehicles - at the far end of the driveway is an oak framed 3 bay car port with a matching slate roof - the whole structure is in exceptional condition and sits comfortably next to the main house. Immediatley beside the entrance gates is a newly built double garage with office above - with matching slate roof and new electric rolling garage door. To the side there is an access door and window - the door matches the side door access to the Vicarage making for an eye catching setup - added to this is the 1.2m round stained / coloured glass window to the front aspect of the new garage.

The gardens are wrap around style to the main house and stretch from the oak framed car port right around the house all the way back to the new built garage - the gardens are fully matured and established and managed by a gardener for the last 10 years who manages it lovingly.

The trees at the Old Vic are some of the tallest in the area and add to the established and mature setting that is the Vic.
