The Old Vicarage West is a fabulous example of Victorian architecture, understood to date from circa 1898. It offers versatile and spacious accommodation over three floors and a guest annexe totalling a huge 4332 sq ft.
The property has been completely renovated in the last three years to create a modern, light family home. This has taken the form of updated kitchen and sanitaryware along with modern light fittings and fitted carpets throughout. The period features include panelled doors, sash windows, fireplaces and high ceilings that have been retained and celebrated through the sympathetic renovation.
The extension to the property offers a large annexe approached from the kitchen via a secondary staircase that includes a kitchen/living room, shower room and large bedroom. This offers the possibility of multigenerational living, a live-in nanny, an Airbnb (subject to the necessary consents) or a very welcoming base for visiting guests.
The property is approached via a gravel driveway which offers level parking for numerous vehicles. The modern front door opens onto a large practical lobby with inbuilt shelving for shoe storage and wall space for hanging coats; ideal for a large family. Once entering the property from the porch, the dual aspect sitting room to the right offers a light and relaxing space; the large bay window and fireplace really showing off the property's heritage. Adjacent to the sitting room is a second reception room which is used as a great sized family room by the property's current owners. A snug also on the ground floor offers a cosy space for film nights but also has the potential to be used as a home office or hobby room.
The recently renovated kitchen/diner on the ground floor of the extension includes a large island, white handleless units and white granite worktops, along with all modern appliances. The kitchen/diner is a wonderful space for family dining and entertaining, with the added benefit of bifold doors opening on to a patio area and mature gardens. To the side of the kitchen is a large separate utility room with space for several laundry appliances, sink and storage space. There is an internal door leading from the kitchen to a double garage with an electronically opening door for convenience.
To the first floor the magnificent family bathroom is dual aspect creating a light, tranquil space; the focal point being the cast iron bath on a raised platform. In addition there is a separate shower cubicle featuring a rainfall shower. The master bedroom features extensive built-in wardrobes complete with LED lighting. The ensuite has been completely renovated to include a large walk in shower with Hansgrohe rainfall shower above. The light, spacious hallway featuring wooden balustrades and arch details leads to the second floor that contains three double bedrooms and a cloakroom to serve the floor. The accommodation is again versatile with one of the bedrooms currently being used as an office. The second floor offers breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside and Buxted Park Hotel.
