The Old VicarageThe Old Vicarage is a stunning property, with the character, atmosphere and charm of its Victorian origins, and the present owner immediately realised its potential as a fantastic home. The house was in need of renovation, and it was a labour of love to seamlessly blend original features with the comforts of modern life.
Surrounded by the beautiful Radnorshire countryside, The Old Vicarage provides a calm and idyllic life style. With its warm red brick walls and generous windows it has a pleasing, welcoming façade. The impressive hallway gives a taste of the size and elegance of the house and the present owner says it is easy to imagine a Victorian lady in hooped skirts walking down the stairs.
All the reception rooms are used and enjoyed to the full. They are large and full of light that floods through the windows creating a positive ambience. First time guests say what a wonderful and graceful feeling the house has, and how very surprising when they had been expecting a dark, old vicarage. The kitchen is a busy family hub, and a sociable area where the family can chat around the table. The view from the window is glorious. It stretches across a soft green lawn to fields and hills beyond. Now there are lambs everywhere and later on calves. Every room in the house has a similarly pastoral and magnificent scene as a wonderful backdrop.
The large rooms make an ideal entertaining venue for extended family gatherings and parties. The dining room with its Art Deco fireplace, and William Morris wallpaper, is perfect for more formal occasions when you are transported back to another era. The great bay window in the drawing room and patio doors to the garden create a sparkling room, perfect for summer days, when you can throw the doors open to the garden. Two studies provide individual space for everyone. With its six double bedrooms, The Old Vicarage easily accommodates guests. Entertaining is eased by the walk in pantry for storing extra provisions and the cellar with its wine bins, used by past vicars.
The gardens are a magical mix of lawn, ornamental borders and trees. Walk through the woodland garden to the lovely bluebell walk and along the slope of the hill behind the house with cherry, birch and magnolia trees. It is a garden full of bird song and there are numerous places to sit and savour the natural world around you. The large room above the stable, coach house and tack room, where the Sunday school was held, is now a studio.
You can walk to Dolau station, which is a request stop on the Heart of Wales Line, for daily trains into Swansea and surrounding villages. The pleasant towns of Hereford, Ludlow, Leominster and Hay on Wye are within easy distance and the area abounds in walks and horse riding trails. The present owner will miss everything about this fantastic house but takes away many happy memories.
