FULL DESCRIPTION An exceptional detached property of great character and charm.
The property was built at a time when the vicarage was often the grandest home in a village and the church was the centre of activity.
The deliberate scale and grandeur of the original design is today much in demand for flexible family living, while the quality period features are also highly sought after.
From the driveway and original stone steps to the front door, guests are welcomed through stained glass doors into a spacious hallway with original mosaic tiling.
Three large formal reception rooms, including one used as a family room, boasting high ceilings and original plaster cornicing. All windows have been refurbished to double glazed sash timber with lock fasteners and brass lift hooks together with full length shutters, high ceilings. The dining room benefits from windows on two sides, while light pours into the lounge through almost floor to ceiling windows and a large bay overlooking the garden.
The practical, stylish, modern kitchen has a range cooker and limestone tiled flooring.
There is the bonus of a breakfast dining room, an ideal space for informal meals with children and other activities. A useful shower room and boot room are also located nearby on the ground floor.
A utility room leads an enclosed walled courtyard complete the adaptable downstairs space.
Upstairs, five of six bedrooms have feature fire surrounds, there is a family bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower. There is a second staircase from the landing leading to the kitchen.
The sixth bedroom is distanced from the other rooms so is ideal for a family member who prefers some privacy, or as a home office.
It is also worth noting that the property benefits from a 40 KW Baxi Combi boiler system, the hot water is gas powered and there are radiators to all rooms. There is also a basement with a floor area of 28ft x 7ft, accessed in the hallway via a floor hatch.
From the moment you enter this property the sheer quality of the accommodation on offer is immediately evident, truly a credit to its current owners. Early viewings are strongly recommended to avoid disappointment.
