The Old Vicarage

The dream: The name says it all

– and this house is the large, yet

cosy, tile-hung Victorian family

home dream of anyone who has

enjoyed a book by Noel Streatfeild

(her fictionalised autobiography,

A Vicarage Family is a classic). All

the rooms, over three floors, have

wonderful proportions and from

the stately dining room there are

double doors to the twin-aspect

drawing room. There’s a study, a

reading room and a family room –

and it has a kitchen/breakfast room

opening out onto a lovely south

facing terrace, just crying out for

a more characterful makeover.

Where: The southern edge of the

very sought after village of Shamley

Green, five miles from Guildford.

Setting: Wooded, rolling countryside

in the Surrey Hills AONB.

Beds: 9 Baths: 5

Special features: A really spectacular

classic swimming pool, enclosed in

a clipped yew hedge, with an arch.

Pleasing details: Working

original shutters.

Outside: Beautiful gardens,

a big terrace and a very

sprauncy tennis court.

from Guildford to Waterloo.
