An exceptional Victorian vicarage with consent to extend on the edge of a pretty, rural village,
Constructed of mellow red brick under a clay tile roof, The Old Vicarage is a handsome Victorian family home built over three storeys. Internally the house combines light and spacious reception rooms with eight comfortable bedrooms. Each of the main reception rooms face south with beautiful views over the gardens to the pond and paddocks beyond. Of particular note are the proportions of all the rooms, including the drawing room centered on an attractive open fireplace with glazed French doors opening onto the South terrace. The kitchen has recently been extended with an orangery providing an informal dining area and open plan through to the family room.
On the first floor is the substantial master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with views to the church, and a large en-suite dressing room. Planning consent has been granted for a significant extension of the principal house on the 19th December 2016. The plans allow for a large basement and increased floor area on the ground, first and second floors including an orangery on the south side of the house whilst creating an attractive symmetry to the front elevation.
The gardens and grounds are a strong feature of The Old Vicarage, laid mostly to lawn with sculpted yew hedges and studded with a selection of deciduous and evergreen trees. To the south a terrace provides views over the lawns to the brick fish pond and stream and the paddocks beyond.
Situated to the west of the house is the newly constructed ‘coach house’ providing garaging for two vehicles and a very spacious office on the first floor. Subject to planning consent, this could provide useful secondary accommodation if required.
Beyond the stream is an area of mature open parkland protected by a shelter belt of well-established trees. There is a timber constructed stable block on a concrete base providing stabling and feed storage.
