The Old Vicarage is a gracious Grade II listed village house constructed of rubble stone elevations under a tiled roof with two broad gables and both stone mullioned and sash windows.
The accommodation is generous and harks back to various periods – the reception hall is spacious and welcoming with a Georgian shell cupboard, stone fireplace and a rare medieval puddle floor. The arch-framed 17th century staircase also opens onto the hall while the sitting room has a large medieval inglenook fireplace and French windows with original shutters.
Accommodation in total comprises: reception hall, drawing room, study, dining room, inner hall, kitchen/breakfast room and a studio annexe. The principal bedroom is en suite and there are five further bedrooms and a family bathroom upstairs.
Outside the formal garden is divided from the main lawn by a yew hedge – the lawn slopes down to the small brook at the end of the garden which has been planted with lavender. There is also a small stable or piggery and woodshed next to a vegetable patch with raspberry canes, rhubarb, gooseberry and blackcurrant bushes and the gardens boast some ancient apple and plum trees.

The house is situated within the Somerset village of Kilmersdon, which has an active village hall and a good public house. Babington House is just a mile away and can be reached through the bluebell woods at the end of the village.
