The Priory, SteventonAbout this home

Originally a farm, administered by a Prior, activity at The Priory can trace be traced back to the times of Henry I. This incredible and historic Grade II* Listed house is believed to have mostly been built in the 15th and 16th Centuries. Typical of historic houses, it has evolved over the years and is now a comfortable and highly appealing family home. It is only the second time in 75 years that this important village house has come to the market, making this a rare opportunity to acquire a property of such historical interest. Situated on the picturesque Causeway, this is a quiet haven tucked away within the village of Steventon.

Set in enchanting gardens of about one acre, the house provides almost 4,500 sq ft of accommodation with numerous additional outbuildings, including an indoor swimming pool, a large garage and beautiful green house. Additionally, there is a separate fully functioning utility room. Whilst already a fantastic house, there is so much scope to further improve and enhance The Priory, to make this a truly special family home for the 21st Century.
