The Old Vicarage is a lovely old period house, full of warmth and character, in a very desirable position at the heart of Whitchurch village, close to the post office, pub and within easy walking distance of Whitchurch Down and Dartmoor. The house has been owned and enjoyed by the same family since 1966. The accommodation is arranged over two floors with three bedrooms, two reception rooms, a dining room and kitchen. There are open fires, low ceilings, and the original shuttered windows. The original porch, with its filigree detail, is still standing although the Victorian veranda visible in old photographs has been lost. To the rear of the house is a brick-built extension, housing the kitchen, and there are a number of separate stores. The plot is generally level, the front garden is South facing, and there is ample private driveway parking for several vehicles. For sale with no onward chain.
