The Priory is a fascinating part of Thornbury's history, tucked away on the south-west side of Castle Street on the approach to St.
Mary's Church and Thornbury Castle.
It sits at the head of generous, stone-walled, private and secluded gardens with block-paved off-street parking to the side, all hidden behind high wooden gates.
The focal point of the house is the stunning first-floor drawing room with its high vaulted and beamed ceiling, beautiful stone fireplace and the ancient fresco on the adjacent wall.
Character features include the fine old entrance door, some mullioned windows, fireplaces and exposed beams.
The living space includes a grand wood-panelled dual-aspect dining room (with a cellar below), perfect for dinner parties and a separate study/sitting room on the opposite side of the main hallway.
There is a utility room, cloakroom and a kitchen/breakfast room overlooking the garden at the rear, complete with a flagstone floor, china sink, period wooden dresser and a window seat to the side.
A unique and interesting period property, just waiting for the next owners to take on its stewardship into the 21st century.
