"The Old Vicarage provides stylishly comfortable 21st century living within a stunningly beautiful house," property agent Katy Stephenson said.

"A hidden gem, placed in the town centre within its secluded garden."

The home is described as an 'elegant and substantial' town house which has been renovated to a 'very high standard' in recent years.

Believed to date back to the 18th century, the home contains both a wealth of period features and 21st century attributes.

Inside, you will find high ceilings, full height sash windows with shutters, and a combination of tiled, wooden floors and luxury kitchen and sanitary ware.

Meanwhile, the majority of the ground floor benefits from underfloor heating.

The accommodation is laid out over three floors, including an entrance hall which gives access to a generously-sized kitchen/breakfast/sitting room.

Beyond the kitchen lies a dining room with wood burning stove and at the rear of the house is a drawing room, which also has a wood burning stove, along with orangery windows which give access out on to the terrace and garden.

Also on the ground floor is the third reception room currently used as a study/office, as well as a utility room, cloakroom, the sauna, garden room/studio with bi-fold doors out onto the terrace and extensive brick cellars.

From the entrance hall and up a sweeping staircase are three large double bedrooms, with the principal bedroom looking out onto the garden from a stair balcony.

There is access at the rear of the second floor to an external staircase, which would give the potential option of using part of the second floor as annexe accommodation.

Outside, The Old Vicarage, which is approached through an electric gate accessed via Church Row, has well-established gardens which provide a degree of privacy and seclusion.

At the rear of the house is a private parking area with garaging and a cart lodge.
