A wonderful detached period house with oustanding living space, landscaped gardens of about 0.42 acres, lovely views towards the Church and in a very quiet position within walking distance of the centre of this highly sought after village.
Old Vicarage Cottage offers the perfect combination of charming character with the very latest green technology. The cottage dates back to the 17th century, was extended in 1997 and again in 2005/6 whilst the present owners have made further improvements including a new cartlodge/garage and landscaping the attractive gardens by Paul Baines. The cottage is also part of the Government’s ‘Green Deal’ following the installation of an Air-Source Heat Pump and solar panels. As a result the house generated £1,100 worth of surplus energy in 2016. The focal point of Old Vicarage Cottage is the superb kitchen/family room/conservatory with double doors out to
the terraces. The kitchen features an electric ‘Aga’, built-in ‘Bosch’ oven and 4-ring ceramic hob, fridge, dishwasher, extensive Shaker style wall and floor cupboards and granite worksurfaces. The sitting room and dining room are connected by bi-fold doors hereby creating great entertaining space, both rooms have feature fireplaces and
there are French doors from the sitting room out to the terrace. On the first floor there are 3 double bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room, a single bedroom which is currently used as a dressing room and a family bathroom.
Old Vicarage Cottage is approached over a shingle drive passing brick and flint walls and leading to a wide parking area and the detached double bay cartlodge with an adjoining secure garage which is used as a workshop at present, power and water are connected.
The property is bounded to the south, east and west, by wide terraces beyond which are extensive lawns, numerous specimen trees and shrubs and several recently landscaped flower and shrub borders.
