Originally one with neighbouring Dower House and in part dating back 1622, The Old Vicarage, now semi-detached is full of character and is available to the open market for the first time in more than 40 years.  Located within a conservation village and Grade II listed this spacious home offers three floors of accommodation which includes a fine drawing room with high ceiling and large shuttered windows, beamed sitting room and a large family kitchen that spills out onto the rear garden.  Four bedrooms are served by three bathrooms and a large two-storey coach house, built in 1768, offers extensive garaging and potential for conversion.  Available with NO CHAIN, The Old Vicarage enjoys a sunny south facing plot extending to just over ¼ of an acre in total and early viewing is strongly recommended. 


The village of Barkby lies approximately five miles north east of Leicester city centre and is flanked by some of Leicestershire’s most attractive rolling countryside.  A small rural village hosting two public houses, parish church and primary school as well as being well placed for access onto the A46 and M1/M69.

Ground Floor

The property is entered through a six panel door into a spacious entrance hall with Georgian staircase and two multi pane windows to front.  Two cupboards in the hallway provide useful storage and leading off the hall is a study with external door to the rear gardens.  The drawing room is elegant with high ceiling and two large shuttered windows flood the room with natural light.  An open fire, set within a Carrera marble surround, is a further feature of the drawing room along with original ceiling cornicing.  The sitting room, with external door and large picture window, has exposed ceiling beams and adjoins the breakfast kitchen which projects out into the rear garden.  The kitchen is fitted with base and wall cabinets has a mains gas fired AGA, external door and provides ample space to dine.

The first floor landing has two lovely leaded windows and is split-level.  Leading from the landing are three bedrooms and family bathroom and the master bedroom is approached via a short staircase.  The master bedroom is located above the drawing room and has two multi pane sash windows and en suite bathroom with deco bath.  A spacious landing on the second floor leads to a further double bedroom with Yorkshire sash windows to front and rear and en suite bathroom with a three piece suite.




The property stands well back from Vicarage Lane behind an old brick wall and is partially hidden behind an established front boundary formed mainly of old Yew trees.  A sweeping gravel driveway flanked by a neatly clipped box hedge leads to a generous turning area and manicured lawns extend to the front and side.  The driveway provides plentiful hardstanding and access to a two-storey coach house and garage.  The gardens are a particular feature of the property and enjoy a southerly aspect, are well established and include a number of old fruit trees and are enclosed on all sides by established boundaries.  Adjacent to the breakfast kitchen is an attractive flagstone terrace and manicured lawns extend from the front to the rear and within the rear garden is highly productive vegetable plot and garden shed.
