BEST OF OLD AND NEW
Set in the heart of Ripley village, this five-bedroom, Grade II listed, Georgian house has been meticulously maintained and updated, while retaining a wealth of period features. The period features include original wooden floorboards, open fireplaces, cornicing and window shutters.
The Old Vicarage has been updated to include underfloor heating and a central sound system running through the home. The Hacker kitchen/breakfast room is beautifully appointed and overlooks the rear garden. Fitted appliances include induction hob, steam oven, fitted refrigerator, freezer as well as stone-work surfaces.
The bathrooms are equally impressive with a three-piece Kohler fitted en suite bathroom and a shower room with Duravit fittings and a walk-in steam shower cubicle.
Outside, the front area is enclosed with wrought iron railings. To the side there is a parking space with twin gates, which lead through to extra parking for two cars – which in turn leads to a large detached Coach House.
The rear garden, surrounded by a high wall, is a feature of the property. There are several seating areas including a charming covered terrace with a mature vine. Most of the garden is laid to lawn with mature borders as well as a half sized ‘boule’ court to the rear.
The Old Vicarage is situated in the heart of the High Street in this historic village, which has an excellent range of shops as well as coffee shops, restaurants and public houses. The Village Green is said to be the largest in England and hosts a monthly farmers’ market. Fast trains from nearby Woking run into Waterloo, while the A3 links to central London and the M25 to Gatwick and Heathrow.
