Old Vicarage is a superb, detached period property situated on the edge of the small village of Newbiggin On Lune.
Newbiggin-on-Lune is a village in the Eden valley and is part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and about 4 miles from the market town of Kirkby Stephen, the village lies just off the main A685 route from Brough to Tebay having excellent travel links via road, and rail from Kirkby Stephen on the Settle - Carlisle line. There are excellent walks from the door step including a lovely walk to Smardale Gill Viaduct.
The Property was built in 1907 and retains many original features including high ceilings and generous apportioned rooms one expects in an Edwardian house. It has double glazing, oil central heating and is beautifully decorated throughout. The property was used as a Vicarage until the 1950's and has since been a residential home. The current owners have lived and loved the house for over 20 years.
Internally the property has a feeling of grandeur, the entrance is pleasant having a bespoke oak front door with stained glass surround. This leads through to the inner hall where there is an impressive turned staircase, study and large storeroom. There are two reception rooms, separated by an archway, both of these have lovely open views over the fields and to the fells. There is a large dining room with open fire, a family dining kitchen and scullery completed with a pantry. The conservatory has been added and adjoin the main house to the garage, utility and WC. This creates a lovely room overlooking the garden.
Upstairs are four, large double bedrooms and two family bathrooms. All bedrooms enjoy stunning views of the surrounding scenery up towards wild boar Fell and Green Bell.
The second floor is currently accessed via a storeroom. This space could be converted to provide further accommodation if required, there is ample head room and space to create an extra 2/3 bedrooms.
Externally, the property is surrounded by well maintained and mature gardens. There is a lovely lawn surrounded by mature shrubs, bushes and trees with lovely views out to the South and a flagged patio area is an ideal sun trap seating area.
The double garage/workshop did have planning permission for converting it into a two bedroom annexe, which has since lapsed.
The Old Vicarage is a superb family or active retirement home set in a rural, edge of village location yet within easy reach of local amenities.
