The Old Vicarage is a stunning and imposing property which dates back to 1894, set amongst beautifully maintained gardens and grounds. The charm of this former vicarage flows throughout with stone mullion windows, cornicing and touches of stained glass adding to the character.
The principal reception rooms, accessed from the reception hall, sit on the southern elevation of the property enjoying glorious views of the garden and the Coquet valley beyond whilst being flooded with natural light. The delightful drawing room offers an open fire with marble surround and leads into the garden room, a later addition, with glazed walls to three sides that is beautifully shaded by a productive grape vine. French doors lead out to the garden. The study, with attractive window seat, is of a generous size with two windows overlooking the gardens to the front. The dining room and kitchen/breakfast room are the real heart of the home with an archway between the two creating a generous living and entertaining space suited to modern day living. The dining room has an open fire and looks out onto the garden, with steps leading down to the kitchen. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of units, stainless steel sink with double drainer and space for appliances. A wood burning stove sits within an inglenook to one end, whilst a door leads to a rear hall giving external access to the side of the property. A cloakroom with separate WC completes the accommodation to the ground floor.
The main staircase leads from the reception hall to first landing with a generous storage cupboard and a large window at half landing level. Three double bedrooms sit to the front of the property, with two further bedrooms also leading off the landing. The family bathroom comprise spa bath with shower over, wash hand basin set within a vanity unit, WC and airing cupboard.
The annexe is a useful addition to this property and can be used separately or incorporated into the main house. A formal entrance lead from the parking area into an entrance hall, whilst a separate access leads from the courtyard with an entrance porch leading into the sitting room and then into the kitchen. A stair case leads to the first floor with one bedroom, bathroom and access through to the main house. Two further bedrooms are located on the second floor along with access into the attic space which provides ample storage.
The Old Vicarage is approached via a private drive, flanked with mature trees and rhododendrons, leading to the parking area with space for several vehicles. There is an outhouse, a wood pellet store and a single garage, which is currently used as a workshop and houses the wood pellet boiler. Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments bring in income, and these payments will transfer to the new owners. The cellar for the property is accessed externally at the side of the house giving useful outside storage.
The well maintained gardens sit to the south, offering a high degree of privacy with mature hedges and trees throughout. A variety of fruit shrubs and trees are interspersed throughout the garden along with a generous vegetable patch to one corner and a greenhouse.
