6 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

A wonderful and spacious family home for the past 24 years, The Old Vicarage has been sympathetically renovated to retain numerous original features. The Old Vicarage is firmly embedded within the history of Wisbech St. Mary when in 1855, a new parish was created with Henry Jackson appointed as its first vicar. Also a farmer, he commissioned his brother to design the new vicarage at the edge of the village.

A welcoming sense of space and comfort is immediately apparent when entering through the open porch and into the reception hall with its flagstone floor. The wide staircase rises to an impressive vaulted ceiling and galleried landing.

The large Shaker style kitchen/diner is the heart of this home, with a high ceiling, dual aspect windows and walk-in pantry. A further door gives access to the dairy with slate worktops and ample shelving, a boot room and large laundry room with Belfast sink.

For larger gatherings and entertaining, there is a formal dining room with an open fireplace, and a sitting room with a log burner, both with large bay windows and original working shutters. The library with dual aspect windows, shutters and an open fireplace is flooded with natural light and character.

Upstairs in the main house, are three spacious double bedrooms and a dressing room, all with period fireplaces and delightful garden views, serviced by a well-appointed family bathroom and a further shower room. There are three further double bedrooms at the rear of the house, with adjoining WC, which can also be accessed via a back staircase. Ideal for teenagers.

Outside, a sweeping drive through woodland leads to ample parking and towards the coach house which is currently used as a garden room and garage. This was structurally renovated in 2018. Be it that you need to run your own business, or create a separate annex for a family member, this part of the property is ready for someone new to put their own stamp on.

The garden offers generous space for a variety of activities, with two large lawns, mature trees and shrubs surrounding a well-maintained floodlit tennis court.

The Old Vicarage stands out for all the right reasons. Once used for evacuees during the war, it is now an ideal family home, with an abundance of space and period features. Secluded and private, this property is a rare find.
