On the market for the first time in 28 years, The Old Vicarage reflects much care and attention to detail by the vendor in the enhancement and restoration of its period features. The joinery detail is a feature in natural wood finish including tall sash windows, panelling, picture rails and heavy panelled doors. The elevations are of dressed Bargate stone and brick with wide bays and tile hanging, sash and casement windows under a tiled roof. Most rooms enjoy a fine outlook over the colourful gardens with principle south, east and west aspects. The Old Vicarage is appropriately recorded on Waverley Borough Councils’ list of ‘Buildings of Local Merit’, formally known as ‘Locally Listed’ buildings.

Complementing The Old Vicarage and providing a most attractive, private setting with colour and interest. A gravel drive of good length with an electric gate and pedestrian gate leads to a broad sweep at the front of the house. Wide lawns and a stand of sweet chestnut and other varieties border the drive and the lawns, which are framed by banks of azaleas and rhododendrons and link around the house offset by a gravel apron.

The lawns incorporate a croquet lawn and are punctuated with flowering shrubs, trees and a gazebo shrouded in roses and a feature rose garden enclosed by beech hedging with Yorkstone, flanked by lavender and mixed varieties of roses. Screened by a bank of flowering shrubs is the hard tennis court with adjoining spring bulbs. The grounds are studded with sentinel oaks and pines and attract a lot of sun.
