A perfect composition
A Grade II former vicarage in the Cotswold village of Down Ampney
Pilgrims was originally built in 1865 for The Reverend Vaughan Williams, whose son Ralph was later to become one of England’s premier composers. The property was subsequently sold by the Church of England in 1946 and divided into two separate homes some 14 years later with Pilgrims being the former front of house.

The property sits within a generous plot with established gardens, and is being sold with a one-bedroomed attached cottage, plus workshop and garage. The total plot extends to 0.78 acres.
