A stunning rectory in a convenient village location approximately 13 miles from Bath.


The Old Rectory is situated in a prominent position on the southern side of the village of Burton next to the delightful, Grade I Listed St. Mary's Church. The village has a public house
"The Old House at Home" and the nearest shops are in Acton Turville and Nettleton, both about 1 mile. The property is well placed for access to the motorway network; Junction 17 and 18 of the M4 motorway are both within 5 miles. It is also conveniently placed for Bristol, Swindon and the World Heritage City of Bath, famous for its Georgian architecture and Roman heritage. The mainline railway stations in Bath, Chippenham and Bristol have frequent connections to London Paddington; Chippenham to London Paddington taking approximately 65 minutes.


The Old Rectory is a substantial village house occupying a much sought after position in a convenient location. This handsome former rectory dates to 1605 and was significantly added to in 1873. Built of stone elevations under a slate and tiled roof, the Old Rectory has undergone a programme of refurbishments and improvement in recent times. The property has considerable charm and character with superb features typical of the period which sit happily alongside stylish, contemporary fixtures and furnishings. The Old Rectory succeeds in retaining period charm and elegance whilst providing excellent accommodation for modern day family living, entertaining or social events alike.

The property enjoys a central position within approximately 1.5 acres of beautifully maintained gardens and grounds. There are a number of well established mature trees including silver birch, beech, walnut and ginkgo. These carefully designed gardens benefit from two detached workshops, further outbuildings, a heated swimming pool and spa area. The sweeping carriage driveway also leads to a well located parking area in front of the house, and there is also further parking to the rear.
