Old Rectory, Nunney

The Old Rectory on the High Street in Nunney is a 21-bedroom detached Edwardian property in need of modernisation and refurbishment.

Old Rectory, Nunney

Nunney is one of the prettiest villages in Somerset. It lies approximately 2 miles from Frome and 18 miles south east of Bath.

Famed for its moated castle built in the late 14th Century and described by the renowned architectural historian Niklaus Pevsner as aesthetically the most impressive castle in Somerset.

Nunney has a fine Grade I church, a particularly active village hall and a well-regarded school having many activities.

The property, like much of the village, is contained within a Conservation Area.


The Old Rectory has until very recently been operated as a residential care home and is currently under C2 usage commercially.

Subject to consent being granted to revert to residential status, the house could be returned to a grand residence situated in the middle of this highly sought-after village.

Equally, it could be of interest to a diverse range of parties including developers and other commercial uses. The house is not listed, but is in a Conversation Area.

Spanning approximately 7,000 square feet, the property is substantial and offers considerable scope.

We are inviting “Offers in excess of £1,000,000”.
