The Old Vicarage is a quiet, charming, and spacious home which perfectly balances the beautiful English countryside with one of the most dynamic and liveable cities in the world- London. The Old Vicarage is a lovely 3 story 5 bedroom (3300 sf) brick Victorian home in the a lovely quiet residential neighborhood of Worcester Park. Worcester Park is close to Wimbledon and has easy rail access to central London (25 minutes) from the nearby rail station (which runs every 15 minutes most times). This takes you directly to Waterloo, the London Eye, Big Ben, Westminster, nearby Leicester Square, Covent Garden and from there the rest of London. Wimbledon and central London are close, but you also wouldn't want to miss the charm and beauty in other directions. Richmond Park and the waterfront of Kingston are near by, as is the beautiful countryside of Surrey. Enjoy fantastic pubs in Surrey in addition to Michelin star restaurants of London.
