This is the £900,000 property which will become home to a newly-appointed bishop in a controversial move away from his traditional historic palace.
The Rt Rev Peter Hancock, 58, will be one of the first bishops of Bath and Wells in recent years to live outside the Bishop's Palace in Wells, Somerset, which was built in 1210.
Parts of the Grade I-listed moated property – which sits in 14 acres in the shadow of Wells Cathedral – are open to the public and church chiefs wanted somewhere with "more privacy".
So they are buying an impressive Grade II-listed Georgian former rectory – set within its own walled grounds – to be his new residence.
The sale of the imposing Old Rectory in Croscombe, four miles outside Wells, is yet to be completed, but church commissioners have confirmed the four-bed home has been chosen for the bishop and his wife Jane.
In a statement, the Bishop's Palace in Wells said: "The decision for the next Bishop of Bath and Wells to live elsewhere in Wells was made by the Church Commissioners."
