This magnificent former rectory has been sympathetically refurbished, retaining a wealth of additional features and offering five bedrooms, three bathrooms and four reception rooms, set in stunning private grounds of approximately 1.3 acres and enjoying a peaceful, semi-rural location with a conservation area on the outskirts of Holdenhurst village.

The Old Vicarage is an elegant, period residence which in recent years has undergone a meticulous programme of refurbishment, resulting in a beautifully styled family home with impressive entertaining/reception rooms whilst managing to retain its charm and character with many original features. An impressive entrance hall greets visitors whilst the stunning full height, stained glass window is a centrepiece of this stunning room with a beautiful and elegant staircase. The drawing room is light and bright, enjoys a triple aspect with large bay windows overlooking the gardens, with the centrepiece being a marble fireplace housing a coal effect gas fire with a chimney which could be opened if preferred. There is also an elegant formal dining room and a study also with fireplace centrepieces with wooden carved surrounds. A beautifully fitted kitchen with ivory coloured cabinets, granite work surfaces and terracotta tiled flooring is a particular feature of the property. This room has a useful central island unit ideal for preparation, whilst benefitting from a cosy, adjoining breakfast room with solid American oak flooring and double doors leading out onto a covered rear veranda. From the breakfast room there is access into a small cellar. Next to the kitchen room there is a large utility room and laundry room with a door leading out to the garaging area.

Upstairs all bedrooms are well proportioned. The master bedroom has beautifully carved wardrobe cupboards with vanity unit and large en-suite shower room. The guest bedroom is also well proportioned with adjoining en-suite shower room finished in a slightly more contemporary mix of sanitary ware. There are three further bedrooms, a spacious family bathroom and additional, separate cloakroom.

A long, gravelled sweeping driveway provides an impressive entrance up to The Old Vicarage and leads round to a garaging area where there is a detached double garage with adjoining store. The driveway has three lampposts lighting the approach beautifully.

The grounds are level and divided into distinct areas. The majority of the formal gardens is laid to lawn and is on the south easterly side of the house. Access from the breakfast room via French doors is a covered terrace overlooking a more formal, walled garden which is laid to lawn and has attractive, mature borders. The gardens are a particular feature of the property and offer a good degree of seclusion.

The Old Vicarage enjoys a private, tucked away position within a sought after and highly convenient hamlet within close proximity to the main roads, motorways and railway links, together with the commercial centres of Bournemouth and waterside town of Christchurch which are located approximately 4 miles away and 3.5 miles away respectively.

Castle Point shopping centre offers an array of shops, restaurants and supermarkets and is located approximately 0.5 miles away.
