Approached via a wrought iron gate and long drive, Wessington House sits behind stone walls and back from the road, providing a lovely peaceful setting.

Designed by the architect Sir Harold Brakspear and built in 1905 in the Queen Anne Domestic Revival style, this house remains unspoilt. The house was commissioned by Edwin Pound and his wife Elizabeth Salisbury, whose initials are shown as a central motif in the stained-glass windows. The land was purchased from the Bowood estate by Mr Pound who was a prosperous local miller who previously lived locally in Qumerford Mill. The property is full of period charm including parquet and marble flooring, stone mullion and stained-glass windows, wonderful woodwork throughout and open fireplaces.

At over 5000 sq. ft, the property offers generously proportioned and flexible living spaces, with four receptions rooms, eight bedrooms, all of which can be altered to fit any lifestyle.

The property does require renovation and modernisation to bring the property back to its former glory. The property would make the most wonderful and special family home.


The property approached via a long drive leading to a driveway providing parking for several vehicles. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and enclosed by stone walling. There is a pond and the remains of an orangery to the front of the property. To the rear of the property is a large garage with access to the workshops, store and utility room.


Wessington House is situated on the London Road and a short walk from the town centre of Calne. Calne itself provides a comprehensive range of amenities including a choice of shops and supermarkets, numerous sports centres with indoor swimming pools, a contemporary public library, churches and schooling for all age groups.

It is an expanding North Wiltshire town within easy travelling distance of larger towns that include Chippenham 6 miles and Swindon 18 miles. Junctions 15 and 16 of the M4 motorway are both easily accessible, whilst the mainline railway station at Chippenham provides regular services to London, Bath and Bristol. The historic market town of Marlborough is approx 11 miles away, with many boutique shops, cafes and restaurants. There is an excellent range of private schooling in the area with St Margaret’s Prep and St Mary’s in Calne, Marlborough College and Dauntsey’s in West Lavington.
