One of the few freehold properties in Bodenham, The Old Chapel was converted in the late 1990’s into a charming, well-proportioned and presented, three-bedroom home. The property has been in the same ownership since it was converted, which is testament, to the light and airy accommodation within and the ability to live on the ground floor if required. The property also benefits from a courtyard and parking at the rear, and the vendors rent an area of garden immediately adjoining the property which is held on licence from the Longford Estate.

Bodenham is well thought of as being a very pretty and unspoilt village lying approximately four miles south east of the cathedral city of Salisbury. The village originally grew up within the Longford Castle and Estate, and as many of the properties are still within the Estate’s ownership it is very unspoilt. Within the village itself is the Radnor Hall, which is used for local functions and also New Hall hospital, with services provided by Ramsay Healthcare. The neighbouring village of Nunton has a well thought of public house, the Radnor Arms, and a church, whilst Odstock provides a church, public house and nursery school. Salisbury District Hospital is located at the top of Odstock Hill. There is a regular bus service from Bodenham to Downton and Salisbury, Salisbury having an excellent range of educational, shopping, leisure and cultural facilities, as well as a mainline station with trains to London Waterloo, journey time of approximately 90 minutes. Salisbury also supports a well thought of Playhouse and twice weekly Charter Market and has been voted the ‘Best Place to Live’ by The Sunday Times.
