DESCRIPTION The Old Vicarage is a delightful period home which has been sympathetically improved to offer comfortable, modern living accommodation within a commanding period property lying privately in beautiful, well maintained grounds.

This superbly restored building dates back to 1834 when it was the Vicarage to the Church of St. Marys, which sits close by the property but is now redundant. The current owners purchased the property from the Church in 1983 and in the en-suing 35 years have sensitively modernised it retaining the original character but teaming it with tasteful decoration to provide elegant living accommodation and a family home.

The property is approached through wrought iron gates flanked by brick pillars, past the detached brick garage with double entrance doors and space for several vehicles, down the side of the house and to the impressive circular driveway with feature fountain. Entrance to the property is through the original entrance door to the imposing spacious hallway with living room and dining room on either side, the living room being dual aspect with open fireplace and of elegant proportions. Further along the hallway is a sitting room with open fire which has a cosy relaxed atmosphere, there is a contemporary cloakroom and then on to the beautiful hand painted bespoke kitchen with a range of integral appliances, just off the kitchen is a utility with door to the garden and patio area. Steps lead down to the cellar which is dry and well cared for, ideal for the wine connoisseur! To the rear of the property is a large family room which would be suitable for a number of uses such as a further sitting room, party room or games room. To the first floor are five double bedrooms, one with dressing room and one with en-suite shower room, the stunning family bathroom has a contemporary suite with a beautiful free standing slipper bath and double shower unit. Outside, the one and a half acre gardens lie predominantly to the south being laid mainly to lawn with mature shrub and perennial beds and surrounded by mature trees which afford a high degree of privacy. The gardens sweep down to the large sheltered patio area which is ideal for entertaining.
The property is quietly located on eastern outskirts of the delightful village of Barnetby, sitting in an elevated position, overlooking and adjoining the beautiful open countryside lying on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, yet within easy reach of good local facilities. There are many footpaths and bridle ways close by including the Viking Way which runs through the village.

This is a family home but the versatility of the accommodation offered makes it one of the most prestigious houses in the region, suitable for entertaining at the highest level. Viewing is strongly recommended to fully appreciate the quality and elegance of accommodation and surroundings.
