A pretty cottage, which featured in The Vicar of Dibley, is for sale for the first time in over 60 years.
Set in the tiny Buckinghamshire village of Turville, Church Cottage was adjoined to the fictional home of Dawn French's title character, Geraldine Granger, in the popular sitcom show.
Accessed from the front via the grounds of St Mary the Virgin Church, this home comprises two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a sitting room which features a dual aspect and open fireplace. It might need a touch of TLC throughout, but this will give new owners the chance to put their own stamp on the home.
The rear garden, predominately laid to lawn, has privacy-giving hedging to one side, a timber shed, greenhouse for growing vegetables, and a garden path that leads to the car port.
As well as The Vicar of Dibley, the picturesque village has also been the filming location for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Goodnight Mr Tom, Midsomer Murders and Killing Eve. From its traditional cottages to countryside views, we're not surprised it's a popular choice for film and TV crews.
'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,' says estate agent Charlie Chavasse, from Savills in Henley-on-Thames.
The owners of Church Cottage add: 'It has been very exciting to own a property that has appeared in such a popular sitcom and its connection with the Vicar of Dibley has often proved an interesting talking point among friends and family. It was lovely to see the house on screen and I hope the new owners will be very happy here.'
This property is currently on the market for £900,000 with Savills.
