The property is entered via a beautiful stone portico into a bright entrance hall.
There are three reception rooms, a sitting room with open fireplace, a drawing room with gas fire with both rooms having shuttered windows overlooking the garden and valley beyond and a spacious study with stone fireplace and door giving access to the garden.
The generous dining kitchen houses painted units with granite worktops, an Aga oven, integrated oven with four-ring gas hob over, 1½ bowl sink, plumbing for a dishwasher and space for large fridge-freezer. A door provides access to the large cellar that provides utility and storage space and is plumbed for a washing machine and has space for a dryer.
All four double bedrooms are located on the first floor. There are fitted wardrobes in three of the bedrooms and the master benefits from a luxurious en-suite bathroom housing a free-standing bath with shower over, WC, bidet and wash basin incorporated into a hand-painted vanity unit. The bedrooms are complemented by a four-piece family bathroom housing a corner jacuzzi bath, shower cubicle, WC and pedestal wash basin. The spacious landing benefits from built-in storage cupboards.
The Old Vicarage stands in mature gardens predominantly laid to lawn bordered with a variety of established trees, shrubs, flower borders and stone-flagged patios. To the front of the property is a large stone-flagged terrace positioned to enjoy the views across the valley and ideal for al fresco dining. Electric gates give access to the driveway and parking area to the rear of the property and in front of the garage. Adjacent to the garage is a large workshop and to the first floor is a generous room, currently utilised as a studio but would lend itself to being a home office or teenager’s den.
