The building has evolved over the years, combining a charming blend of Georgian and earlier architecture to create a substantial house with a wonderful feel throughout. The Georgian element provides elegant formal reception rooms in the shape of a library and drawing room. Both these handsome rooms...
are filled with light through large sash windows and the woodwork has been restored, giving a fantastic warmth to them. The main front door with a delicate fan light above opens to the library. The house retains many period features including beautiful sliding or folding shutters. The kitchen is to the middle of the house with plenty of space for a table; the units are set into a wide bay window. A lobby leads to a door opening to the front of the house and to the utility room. Across an entrance hall, providing the day to day access, is a dining room and a further utility/additional kitchen space.Three further reception rooms are arranged across the back of the house providing two sitting rooms, one with a door to a large store cupboard and the other with a wood-burning stove set in a brick fireplace. A further reception room with a bay window could make a spacious study. All overlook the gardens to the rear.Two of the principal bedrooms occupy the Georgian part of the house, providing beautifully proportioned rooms with large sash windows. A “Jack and Jill” bathroom has a separate bath and shower. There are five further first floor bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and two attic bedrooms.The Old Vicarage offers the most wonderful amount of space combining beautifully the different ages of the house. The room and layout give potential for an annexe, if desired.To the south side of the house is a pretty walled rose garden and beyond this a kitchen garden with a greenhouse. Adjoining is a terrace leading to an expanse of lawn which sweeps round in front of the Georgian façade and provides the main area of garden.   The house is approached over a gravel drive leading to a five bar gate and plenty of parking beyond.
