Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
The exclusive opportunity to be the owners of the village vicarage is a rare one that comes with both nostalgia and prestige. Vicarages are typically large and imposing and the former church residence at Monk Hesleden, in County Durham, fulfils this expectation perfectly. The brick-built Old Vicarage extends to more than 4,500sq ft reflecting a very substantial home, but it also comes with 3 acres of land and an additional wooden stable block for four horses, with electricity and water supply.

Accessed through a private entrance and a gravelled drive leading to an extensive parking area, the imposing dwelling is impressive from the outset. Once inside, the character interior boasts numerous period features, high ceilings and large windows. Reception space is exceptional with four large rooms, a bright music or library area and a conservatory stretching to almost the full length of the side of the house.

A dual aspect dining room and living room with a deep bay window occupy prime positions flooded with natural light and facing the garden. Both have original shutters and the living room has a ceiling rose and log burner.

The conservatory is an ideal space for entertaining since it opens onto a courtyard with barbecue and outdoor dining area, together with a kitchen herb garden.

An inner hallway with parquet floor and library shelving leads through to the large kitchen and dining area with desirable features including a centre island, Aga, quarry tile floor and a Belfast sink. A large utility room is conveniently positioned next door, with access to outside. A spiral staircase leads to the first floor here, but the main, elegant staircase leads from the hallway to a half landing with feature window. Continuing up, the space is extremely generous, notably three very large double bedrooms and a superb master suite comprising a walk-through dressing room and large en suite shower room. A family bathroom and fifth bedroom with a dry sauna complete the first floor.


The stunning large garden includes a decked area, koi pond, orchard, a greenhouse and a Scandinavian barbecue cabin. There are numerous mature trees and shrubs, planted borders and manicured lawns with different areas linked by pathways for added interest. The stables and tack room are brick-built and benefit from opening onto a good size yard.
