Built in 1856 by Benjamin Ferry, The Old Vicarage sits well within its grounds and enjoys views over the neighboring countryside and the beautiful St Luke’s church. The property has been a much loved family home for just over 30 years and would now benefit from some updating. Being detached and constructed of brick elevations with sandstone quoins, the property has a great deal of character with period detail including high ceilings, picture rails and a lovely wide entrance hall. The house contains a number of well-proportioned reception rooms, all of which overlook the gardens surrounding the property and include a drawing room, sitting room and dining room. The kitchen is served by a walk-in larder and a separate breakfast room adjacent. A door below the stairs leads to the cellar. To the first floor there are four double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and one having an adjoining dressing room. A family bathroom serves the remaining rooms. A further staircase leads to the second floor where two bedrooms can be found.
Sambrook is a delightful village north of Newport and has The Three Horseshoes Public House and the Church of St Luke’s. The village of Hinstock, which lies 2 miles distant has The Falcon Inn Public House, Primary School, Post Office and Store and St Oswald’s Church.

The Old Vicarage is accessed via a private drive leading to a large gravelled parking area and the garages. The property sits centrally within the gardens, which are laid to lawn and bordered by mature trees and shrubs. A productive vegetable garden and orchard lay to the side of the house, as well as a greenhouse, and shed. A rear drive leads on from the property to the village lane, where vehicular access can be gained to the paddock, which extends to approximately 3 acres and has post and rail fencing, a water supply and a stable.
