THE PROPERTY

OUTSTANDING VICTORIAN HOME OCCUPYING AN IMPORTANT POSITION IN THE CENTRE OF CAPEL VILLAGE.... The Old Vicarage is a most impressive and attractive late Victorian residence in the heart of Capel village. The current owners purchased the property from the Diocese of Guildford, about 18 years ago, and they instigated a significant programme of updating and modernization throughout the intervening years, together with a first class contemporary extension. The Old Vicarage provides extensive family accommodation of around 4000 SQ FT arranged over three floors, retaining many of the characteristics of the Victorian era that one would expect, including well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings, original doors, sash windows, and many open fireplaces. The impressive entrance hall leads to the two formal receptions rooms, both with double aspects and original fireplaces. There is a cloakroom and two further reception rooms, whilst in 2011 the current owners completed a superb extension to encompass the kitchen/dining room, a further cloakroom, utility room and hallway that leads to the front driveway. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with handmade bespoke kitchen furniture, incorporating integrated appliances, a Quooker hot water tap, with a central island complimented by granite worksurfaces. The upper floors have an array of delightful rooms, comprising the main bedroom with dressing room and en-suite and six further bedrooms together with two bathrooms. The gardens are a delightful feature of The Old Vicarage having been well-maintained over the years, offering a good degree of privacy and seclusion, with sweeping lawns surrounding the property from east to west. There are fine views over the neighbouring farmland. There is substantial terrace leading directly out from the sliding doors in the kitchen, which makes for a delightful space for outside entertaining. There is a driveway to the front providing ample parking with an electric car charging point and there is also access to an integral garage. In all, the grounds extend to about 0.58 of an acre.
