Situated on the outskirts of Penn, this charming 3-4 bedroom semi-detached period house offers a rare combination of convenience and tranquillity enjoying views onto open countryside at the rear, yet lying less than half a mile from the A449 and providing exceptionally easy access into the city centre. Originally two cottages thought to date back at least as far as the mid-1700s, these two dwellings were later combined to create the old vicarage for St Bartholomew’s Church opposite, before being subsequently split into two separate homes once again during the 1980s. The property occupies a prominent position opposite the church and beside a quiet bridleway, benefitting from a rural ambience unusual so close to the city. Arranged over three floors plus extensive dry cellaring below, this wonderful family home retains a wealth of period charm throughout and is just a short walk from well-regarded St Bartholomew’s Primary, while additional schooling options are available across both sectors within the surrounding area. At the front of the property, a wide porch frames the original front door, displaying superb coloured glazing in vibrant yellow, blue, and magenta, which opens to a spacious entrance hall. The invaluable utility and downstairs WC can be found off before a door to the central hallway, a stunning double-height space with a rich oak staircase, galleried landing, and a glorious period window above, matching the front door. The delightful dining room is located at the rear overlooking the garden and the remainder of the ground floor provides a large, open-plan living space and kitchen, featuring patio doors to the rear, a wood-burning stove, and a well-appointed kitchen area. Off the very spacious landing, the master bedroom is a substantial double with en suite and excellent views across the countryside to the rear. There is considerable scope here to add a dressing area, utilising some of the extra space on the landing. On this floor, the second bedroom boasts a wonderfully light en suite in addition to a sizeable office or fourth bedroom, having nursery door to the master and lovely views to the rear elevation. On the top floor, a very private third double room offers breathtaking views over the open fields beyond the garden, an impressive double room with a luxurious en suite, featuring a roll-top bath. Allocated courtyard parking is provided with a further parking space immediately before the front gate, while the adjacent church car park is ideal for guest parking. At the rear, the garden is pleasantly mature, enclosed by a charming stone wall to one side and having a gate directly onto the bridleway, perfect for relaxed country walks.
