Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This historic former rectory was constructed by wealthy rector of the time, John Barron, on the site of a former rectory. This statement building displays a host of unique period features from the mid 19th Century and is broadly designed in the Gothic Victorian style. This decorative yet architectural style is displayed in the many detailed arches, tessellated floors and well-proportioned rooms.
The house underwent an extensive, two year, thorough renovation in 2007 when the pool, with its clever underground link was added. The house also received new plumbing and heating systems, wiring and the addition of high end bathrooms and kitchen.
The property has a good combination of both large and welcoming elements, with impressive rooms, alongside more intimate family spaces which can be adapted for home working or growing families. The former village hall was transformed into the heart of the home with the addition of a bespoke handmade kitchen which leads to the large south facing terrace, via the garden rooms.
There is an opulent principal bedroom with walk in dressing room and en suite as well as three further bedrooms and two bathrooms to the first floor. There are a further three bedrooms and three bathrooms on the top floor as well as flexible spaces currently used as a study and office.
The leisure suite is superb, with exceptional facilities including a gym with underground link to the large indoor swimming pool, complete with electric cover and large patio area. There is also a cinema room (family room) and games rooms, making this a perfect family home.

The landscaped grounds extend to over 1.3 acres. They are diverse and have many areas of interest and seating areas. The five-bar wooden gate allows access onto the parking area to the front and side. The bulk of the garden is laid to lawn with a southerly aspect, incorporating a large patio area accessible from the drawing room, garden room or family room which in turn leads on to the remainder of the gardens. A low ha-ha creates a seamless link between these two spaces. There are an abundance of beautiful and mature trees as well as well-maintained and stocked flower beds throughout There is also a large feature pond with UV filtration and a number of outbuildings. The large rear patio sits between the main house and leisure complex and is an ideal party space.


This is true ‘edge of village house’ and enjoys fine views over the farmland that abuts the house. The village offers a parish church and a well-regarded village pub – The Angel Inn, part of the La Campagna chain of Italian Restaurants with takeaway facilities. There are a more extensive array of facilities in Warminster, about 2 miles away. Warminster also benefits from a main line railway station to London Waterloo (1 hour 55 mins) with the nearby A303 providing road links to London to the east and Exeter to the west. Westbury train line is three miles away with a mainline to London Paddington.
