  • The Old VicarageThe Old Vicarage is believed to date from 1884 and boasts a wealth of late Victorian character and period features including high ceilings, sash windows, feature fireplaces, stained-glass lights framing the front door and a beautiful mosaic tiled floor. The current owners have refurbished the property and have created a truly beautiful home, benefiting from subtle decoration and a perfect mix of period features combined with modern day comfort.

    The Old Vicarage offers extensive accommodation arranged over three floors, the top floor can be used as a self-contained apartment with independent access if required. There are two staircases within the main house creating an extremely flexible living space. All the reception rooms are light and airy with large sash windows maximising natural light and framing views over the gardens. The well-proportioned drawing room and dining room are accessed from an elegant hallway and boast high ceilings, dual aspect windows and feature fireplaces (the former housing a Clearview stove). The superb kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with an extensive range of units with granite worktops. There is a central island unit, a four oven Aga ensuring a warm welcome, an integrated electric hob, double oven and dishwasher. Off the kitchen is a utility room and a separate boot room with additional storage and access to an enclosed courtyard at the rear of the house. Completing the ground floor accommodation are a study, a second sitting room/library with fitted bookshelves and a conservatory. There also extensive cellars. To the first floor there are six well-proportioned bedrooms (the master with en suite bathroom) and two further bath/shower rooms. To the second floor is a self-contained apartment with a fitted kitchen, sitting room, bathroom and two double bedrooms and separate access via an external fire escape to the rear of the property.

  • Situation The Old Vicarage sits on the edge of the popular village of Diddlebury with Church, village hall and primary school. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with walks on the door-step. Golf courses can be found at Ludlow and Bridgnorth and racing is held regularly at Ludlow.

    The nearest shop/petrol station is located at the neighbouring village of Aston Munslow which also has a public house. The historic market towns of Bridgnorth and Ludlow are easily accessible and offer a range of everyday shops, facilities and schools. The private education sector is well catered for with schools in Shrewsbury, a preparatory school at Moor Park just to the south of Ludlow and others in Bridgnorth and Bucknell.

    Communications in the area are first class. Ludlow is on the Manchester to Cardiff railway line, and when changing once, London Paddington is accessible in a little over three hours. The A49 links Hereford in the south with the county town of Shrewsbury in the north. The M54 is accessible at Shrewsbury and Telford.
