Portway House is the only Grade I listed property in Warminster an elegant former Dower House to the Lomgleat Estate, which records show was rebuilt for a wealthy clothier Edward Middlecott in 1722, with classic Bath stone elevations under a slate roof standing well back from Portway behind impressive ornamental railings and elaborate gates decorated with the Coats of Arms of the former Warminster Urban District Council who at one occupied the building as their offices. Following local government reorganization in the early 1980’s Portway House was imaginatively converted into eight self-contained apartments, retaining many of their original architectural features and combining the benefits of modern-day living with the graciousness of a bygone era. Number 4 is located on the First Floor of Portway House approached from the Western - rear of the building via a impressive broad staircase. This is a unique opportunity to acquire a town centre home within this prestigeous period building hence the Agents strongly recommend an early accompanied internal inspection in order to avoid disappointment.


Portway House is most conveniently situated within a few minutes level stroll from the centre Warminster providing good shopping facilities, 3 supermarkets - including a Waitrose store and a nearby Morrisons together with a wide range of other amenities which include a theatre and library, a hospital and clinics and nearby in Emwell Street is The Weymouth Arms gastro-pub. The town enjoys a regular rail service to Salisbury, and then direct to London Waterloo, and to Bath with a direct line on to South Wales. Other main centres in the area which include Frome, Westbury, Trowbridge, Bath and Salisbury are all within a comfortable driving distance whilst the A36, A350 and A303 trunk routes provide swift access throughout the West and further afield to London via the A303/M3. Southampton, Bristol and Bournemouth airports are each just over an hour’s drive.
