The Old Parsonage is a beautifully restored Grade II listed house situated in the popular village of Alvington, Gloucestershire, six miles north of Chepstow. Built in the early Arts and Crafts style, the house was completed in 1889 and is noted in the Pevsner Architectural Guide for Gloucestershire. Decorative brickwork is evident on the gables and tall chimney stacks. The original character of this unique house is complemented within by the tasteful use of materials, colours, and textures sympathetic to the style and fashion of the Art and Crafts period. The accommodation includes four reception rooms, a light and open kitchen/breakfast room looking out onto the garden, a separate utility room, three bedrooms, and two bathrooms. Electric heating is supported by a recently installed solar PV system (2021). Two wood burners provide additional cosy warmth on winter nights. Electricity is supplied to the workshop and woodshed and an electric car charger is installed at the top of the drive. For home workers, the house and grounds of approximately half an acre are south facing and the rooms benefit from lots of natural light and garden views. Wi-Fi and mobile signals are excellent. The Old Parsonage is a truly delightful home in a location offering immediate access to the surrounding countryside including the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley. It is within easy reach of Bristol and Bristol Parkway train station, Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cardiff. Access to the M4/M48 is 6 miles away. Access to the rail network is 2.5 miles away at Lydney.

As you walk up the drive to the right-hand side is a wildlife pond and a little further on to the left is a timber-built workshop and wood store. Wooden fencing and mature hedges screen the front of the property from the road making the property extremely private.

Beyond this is a stone-built garden store. Well-tended level lawns lie to the side of the property with a tree and shrub-lined pathway leading to the porch.
