The Old Vicarage is situated at the end of a most attractive road within the village conservation area adjacent to the Medieval Church in the sought after riverside village of Stevington. The Old Vicarage sits in formal gardens of 0.543 acres.

The property according to the listed building entry is Grade II listed and the present owner and a local historian have traced the property back to the mid 16th century.

The vicarage was extended in 1678, 1835 and 1863. More recently the main house has been extended in stone elevations including an extension to the outbuildings which now houses a stunning swimming pool complex.

The picturesque village of Stevington is situated approx. 6 miles north-west of Bedford town in the valley of river Great Ouse.

The village has a Baptist Chapel, two public houses, a community shop and social centre. Schooling is provided by Bromham Lower School, Lincroft Middle School in Oakley and the renowned Sharnbrook Upper School. There are also several notable private schools located in Bedford.

Nearby Bedford town provides many more shopping facilities with the major supermarkets and shops in the centre and retail parks. Bedford also has a mainline train station offering a Midland mainline train into St. Pancras London in just 35 minutes.
