A charming Buckinghamshire cottage, which featured in the BBC sitcom series, The Vicar of Dibley, is for sale for the first time in more than 6o years.
Church Cottage, adjoined to the fictional home of Dawn French's title character, Geraldine Granger, has two bedrooms, one bathroom, one sitting room with a dual aspect and open fireplace, and a kitchen with original wall tiles. While it needs modernising throughout, the property also presents the opportunity to extend and increase the footprint (subject to the usual consents).
The beautiful rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a timber shed, greenhouse for growing vegetables and privacy-giving trees.
"The sale is an opportunity to own a piece of British TV history in a village that is no stranger to the spotlight. Film crews have been coming here since the 1960s when Cobstone Windmill featured in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang," property agent Charlie Chavasse, from Savills in Henley-on-Thames, says.
"Accessed from the front via the grounds of St Mary the Virgin Church, the front door opens into the sitting room and enjoys a dual aspect and open fireplace. The kitchen can be found on the other side of the property and has access to a cellar, while to the rear of the sitting room is a lobby and ground floor bathroom.
"Stairs from the sitting room lead to the first floor, where there are two double bedrooms with views overlooking the village green, church and the hilltop up to Cobstone Windmill."
The Buckinghamshire village is a popular location for film and TV crews, with the likes of Goodnight Mr Tom, Midsomer Murders and Killing Eve all being filmed there. We're certain film enthusiasts will enjoy touring the area.
