The High Street, Semington


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4

Located on the High Street of this popular Wiltshire village and just a short stroll from the Kennet and Avon canal is this incredibly spacious character home. Owned by the same family for 60 years and formerly 'The Bell' public house, this property was successfully converted and extended over the years into this unique home and sits on a good sized plot of approximately 1/3 of an acre. Internally the flexible layout comprises 4 reception rooms complemented by 4 double bedrooms. On the ground floor a rear hallway leads to a refitted downstairs shower room and also a light breakfast room with a door into the kitchen. The kitchen has tiled flooring and an induction hob and white goods. There is a separate dining room with exposed beams, a characterful dual aspect sitting room with a feature working fireplace and exposed stone walling, as well as an impressive drawing room with a working open fireplace. On the first floor the 21ft main bedroom (formerly a dancing room) is complemented by three further double bedrooms (another of these was the skittle alley) and a family bathroom.

Outside there is ample parking with the property with gravelled driveways to both sides and access up to the large level lawned garden to the rear. A 27ft tandem garage with an electric door, light and power offers scope for conversion to an outside office or alternatively conversion to an annexe (subject to planning). There is also a further attached garage with light and power again offering an opportunity for alternative usage.


The property occupies a lovely position within the centre of the popular village of Semington. The village itself has an excellent primary school, a church and a thriving public house. The fabulous village hall has a post office open 9-12 Mon-Thurs, it has a bar and does skittles and classes. The property has fantastic access to the famous Kennet and Avon Canal. The nearby county town of Trowbridge is only four miles away and offers three secondary schools, shopping centres, two leisure centres, a train station, whilst the world heritage city of Bath is only 15 miles away and offers more comprehensive facilities. There are excellent private schools including King Edwards, Prior Park and Monkton Combe in Bath, and the well respected Daunstey's School in West Lavington. The mainline train stations of Westbury (7 miles) and Chippenham (10 miles) offer links to London Paddington. A useful website for Semington is:
