The Accommodation
All Saints Vicarage is an imposing country house constructed of brick with decorative part tiled facades under a tiled roof complemented by tall chimney stacks, cast iron downspouts and mullioned windows. The facade bears a masonry date stone of 1904 as the property was constructed specifically as a vicarage for the incumbent clergy and completed to an exacting standard. Whilst the property would benefit from a reasonable scheme of modernisation, the accommodation is of good proportions being arranged predominantly over 3 floors with the benefit of oil central heating and a majority of the windows being double glazed. Period features are in abundance throughout with tall ceilings, deep architraves, picture rails, open fireplaces and solid parquet flooring and despite the spacious living space, the vicarage certainly has scope to be extended subject to gaining a satisfactory planning permission.
