Property
This imposing Victorian house was built in the middle of the 19th Century by the Earl of Sheffield as the parish vicarage. The house has been subsequently extended and divided and this is the major portion. The house still retains much of its character and excellent proportions to the rooms.

The large arched front door opens into an entrance lobby with quarry tile floor and door to the hall. Off the hall is a sitting room which is a good size with open fireplace and steps to the lower ground floor. The living room is a similar size with French doors to the garden. Also on this floor is a cloakroom and former kitchen which would make an ideal study.

On the lower ground floor is a hall which is open to the family room with a further fireplace. Beyond is the kitchen/breakfast room with fitted units, woodblock worktops, Rangemaster Professional range with 5 hobs and 4 ovens, an island unit with breakfast bar, tiled floor and glazed door to garden. At the end of the kitchen is a utility room and wet room. Off the hall is the annexe with kitchenette, bedsitting room with a bathroom and door to the garden.

On the first floor is a landing with shelved airing cupboard. There are two good sized bedrooms, family bathroom and shower room.

On the second floor are 2 further double bedrooms.
