Arguably one of the finest private houses in Godalming close to the station, shops and Charterhouse.
The Old Vicarage is an incredibly special 7 bedroom family house offering 7,400 sq ft of beautifully presented and extensive accommodation over three floors right in the heart of this historic town.The property is Grade II listed with both Georgian and Victorian elevations and is believed to be offered for sale for only the third time in its 400-year history. It is understood the property dates from the early-mid 18th century with earlier sections. The house was altered in the 19th century with late 19th century and early 20th century additions.The current owners purchased the property in 2014 and carried out a significant refurbishment to both the house and gardens to create a sensational family home which very much has the feel of a grand country house yet benefits from everything that Godalming has to offer on its doorstep. The ground floor has 5 impressive reception rooms including a stunning reception hall and a substantial bespoke kitchen/breakfast room with Aga. Two separate staircases lead up to the first floor where there is a very fine panelled double drawing room as well as 3 double bedrooms including a fine principal bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom. There is also a very useful utility room keeping all laundry away from the ground floor. On the second floor are 4 double bedrooms and 3 further bathrooms.The Old Vicarage is approached from Borough Road through electric wooden gates into a large gravel parking area off which is an attractive barn-style double garage. The grounds have been beautifully laid out to provide both formal andinformal areas and include a wonderful terrace with pergola enjoying long views down the garden. At the end of the main lawn is a lovely timber gazebo ideal for a sundowner. The front of the house with its Georgian elevation and elegantly planted parterre has lovely views towards the neighbouring church of St Peter & St Paul.
