The Old Parsonage is a very attractive Grade II listed property in Dorset, dating back to the 18th century with extensive 19th century alterations. The house has beautifully appointed accommodation with many original features including sash windows with shutters, a number of fine fireplaces and an elegant staircase in the hallway. The kitchen/breakfast room has an Aga and the bathrooms have all been refitted to a high standard.

Adjoining the house is the former coach house which has been converted into a useful self-contained annexe. Outside are the heated swimming pool and an all weather tennis court, as well as a stable block. The grounds are just over one-and-a-half acres; both the front and rear gardens are laid to lawn and the house also benefits from a small terrace outside, and an orchard of apple trees. A kitchen garden and a chicken run are also features of the garden.

The Old Parsonage is located in the village of Winterbourne Kingston which offers a useful range of local amenities, while Blandford is five miles and Wimborne is nine miles.
