The Old Parsonage dates from the 14th century and was built under the commission of the Abbess of Romsey. It has only had one owner since it was purchased from the Salisbury Diocese in 1970 and has had many of its fascinating features preserved and retained.

This Grade II* listed property offers generous accommodation set to 3 storeys with the ground floor accessed through the arched doorways to the central hallway where the 17th century staircase rises, splits and leads to the main landing.

The principle reception rooms include the parlour, long room, dining room plus the kitchen and utility which overlook the courtyard. There is another room from the long room, currently a workshop but could easily be a study if required.

Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, library and 3 bathrooms (one of which is en suite) with a further 3 rooms on the second floor.

Externally the fully stocked and mature, private gardens incorporate the iron gated driveway, detached double garage, The Granary (a thatched, red brick outbuilding), water garden (previously a swimming pool) and lawns.

The Old Parsonage is situated in a tucked away position in the heart of the village. This much sought after village benefits from having a popular village pub with a Post Office, Village Store providing local produce and a thriving village hall where a range of activities from bowling to amateur dramatics are held thus producing a true community spirit. Local schools nearby include Monkton Combe, Stonar, St Mary’s Calne and Bath schools are just forty minutes away.

Other nearby towns include; Devizes, Bradford on Avon and Frome.

The nearby (17 miles) World Heritage City of Bath, with its Roman remains and wealth of Georgian architecture combine to give an atmosphere of unequalled refinement and elegance in Britain.
