A lovely thatched former vicarage in a tiny, pretty village situated a short distance from the Jurassic Coast.
Dating back to the late 18th or possibly early 19th century, The Old Vicarage is a Grade II listed, charming example of a Dorset ecclesiastical home of the period and is built of plastered cob and brick with three bays, sash windows and a thatched roof. There is a later 19th century addition on the western side of the house, which accommodates the stone-tiled hall and cloakroom and has a slate roof and an open veranda. A charming dining room with floor to ceiling, north-facing windows along one wall has been created from a single storey, former stable block. This links the house to a handsome two-storey single garage, built in the style of a Georgian coach house with a studio/bedroom on its upper floor. The house has a wonderfully private setting at the end of a 120-yard long, no-through road with just the pretty, former parish church of the Holy Rood and open, unspoilt countryside beyond it. It has undergone an extensive programme of sympathetic improvement and refurbishment including recent external redecoration and today is beautifullypresented. A pale, neutral décor combines with tall sash windows and good ceiling height to give a wonderful feeling of space combined with plentiful natural light. The kitchen/breakfast room has a flagstone floor, is fitted with a good range of units and has a new electric AGA inset in the original range fireplace. There is ample space for dining and the kitchen is open to the adjacent sitting room thereby creating a delightful, family hub at the centre of the house. The drawing room is a good size too and incorporates two bay windows, an ornate fireplace, an elegant staircase to the first floor and is well-lit by natural light with a delightful outlook on three sides. The first floor has a part-galleried landing, which leads to three bedrooms and two bathrooms, all of which have attractive views, with the principal bedroom having its own adjacent bathroom.The property is positioned at the end of a 120-yard, no through lane and has a tall boundary wall along the lane with two driveway entrances. The principal, gated entrance leads directly to the single garage and gravel parking area in front of the house and the other secondary drive connects with the far side of the parking area and gives access to a screened fuel store and storage area. The garden and grounds amount to about half an acre and principally extend out in front of the house with a further smaller area around the eastern end of the house. Within the garden are two garden studios, one orientated for morning light and the other for afternoon light.The main lawn is fringed by well stocked borders and studded with established trees and shrubs including mature beech, oak and eucalyptus. At the far end of the lawn are an orchard and soft fruit garden. The grounds provide a high level of privacy and perfectly compliment the house's peaceful setting. Agent's Note: Immediately beyond the northern boundary of the garden is a block of three garages. The middle garage has been purchased by our client to provide additional and convenient storage. This is also available to purchase under separate negotiation.
