the UK. The nearby canal and footpaths provide access to fine

walks.

For Sale Freehold

The Old Vicarage, which is Grade II listed, dates back to the

mid-18th Century and was remodelled 1815 by Thomas Cundy

Senior, the surveyor to the Grosvenor family’s London estates from

1821, and was involved in the initial stages of the development of

Belgravia and Bloomsbury.

It is a very handsome period house of superb proportions, with

large sash windows that fill the living space with light and allow a

view across the mature south facing gardens. It retains much of its

original character and features, including window shutters to

certain windows, panelled doors, decorative cornice, picture rails,

high ceilings and traditional fireplaces.

Double front entrance doors open to a vestibule, with a further

door opening to the large entrance hall.

wash hand basin and a further door opening to the WC.

The large drawing room has an impressive bay with three floor to

ceiling windows, one of which incorporates glazed French doors

opening to the terrace. There is also a fine working fireplace with a

marble surround. By contrast there is a smaller cosy sitting room

with a wood burning stove. Further reception rooms include a large

dining room, with French doors opening to the terrace and a study.

The fitted kitchen with part granite worktops, also has French

doors opening to the terrace and there is a door to a useful pantry.
