A Grade II Listed former Vicarage, together with detached Coach House lying on the edge of the village. Reception hall. 5 reception rooms. Kitchen/breakfast room. Offices. Orangery. Cellar. Master & 2 guest bedroom suites. 4 further double bedrooms. Bathroom. Mature garden. In all about 0.54 of an acre.

THE PROPERTY

Dating to 1862 The Old Vicarage enjoys a private position on the edge of the village with views over open countryside from the upper floors. The property is constructed of red brick with blue banding under a pitched slate roof with decorative ridge tiles. The Vicarage was designed by the Luton architect George Hamilton for the Rev. James Milne-Hamilton in a muscular Gothic style.

From historic records the Vicarage was built by John Vickers of Dunstable and John Ayre of Hockliffe at a cost of £1,250.

The current owners have been extremely good custodians of the property and whilst upgrading and modernizing the house they have been very sympathetic to its inherent Victorian character. Typical of the era, the main reception rooms and bedrooms all enjoy very good proportions and many period features remain in the form of original tiled flooring and exposed floor boards, along with decorative detailing typical of the time.

Complementing the main house is the Coach House which was built in a matching style. The Coach House retains many original features with two stall stables, harness room and coach house with hay loft above. Planning permission was granted in August 2001 for the conversion of the Coach House into annexed living accommodation, and clearly this potential still exists.

The property is surrounded by a mature garden that provides privacy and protection with the gravelled drive offering an abundance of parking.

THE DESCRIPTION
A paved path leads to the brick porch with part glazed front door opening into the red and black tiled reception hall, with inner hall leading off and dog leg staircase rising to the upper floors. The principle reception rooms lie to the front of the house.

The sitting room with its large bay window features a white marble fireplace housing a multi-fuel wood burner. A pair of part glazed doors peel back to reveal the drawing room with the centerpiece being the open fireplace with mantelpiece.

Lying across the hall is the dining room benefitting from matching cupboards with display shelving above, slightly recessed either side of the marble fireplace. All three main reception rooms benefit from picture rails, deep coving, exposed timber floorboards and central ceiling roses.

The inner hall runs through the middle of the house with the orangery at the far end. The kitchen/ breakfast room features handmade base and eye level units with granite work surfaces and a Butler sink with mixer tap. Appliances include electric four oven Aga Range with six ring gas hob and integral hob, Neff dishwasher and Baumatic fridge. An archway leads through to the back kitchen with matching base and eye level units, along with pine fireplace with cast iron grate. To one side is a full height pine cupboard and opposite is a door revealing the rear staircase. Beyond is the pantry and separate utility room, both with red and black patterned tiled flooring. Units adorn the walls of the utility room with a 1.5 bowl sink and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer. The room also houses the Thermecan oil fired central heating boiler.

The study lies off the inner hall with oak strip flooring and at the far end is the orangery with part glazed double doors opening onto the gravelled drive and doors allowing access to the workshop, coal and wood store.

At the far end of the reception hall is a cloakroom, door to exterior and access to steps leading down to a large dry cellar.
