Full description

A delightfully designed home forming part of a small exclusive development of converted farm buildings in a lovely rural setting with light & airy accommodation and pretty gardens.

A super country cottage forming part of a small development of a range of former dairy and farm buildings that have been designed and rebuilt with great care so as to create prestigious homes that compliment the surrounding landscape and the buildings’ architectural history. The front of the property has a mix of timber clad and rendered external elevations whereas the rear is constructed in local Chilmark stone and the roof is of slate tiles. Tastefully decorated and beautifully presented, this delightful country residence is ideal for use either as a primary home or weekend rural retreat.

The light and airy accommodation is arranged over two floors and on the ground floor includes a large L shaped double aspect reception room arranged as open plan sitting and dining room areas with an open fireplace, fitted cupboards and shelves. The kitchen is attractively fitted with shaker style units and good quality equipment. There is also a good-sized reception hall with a storage cupboard on this level, a cloakroom and utility room. Upstairs is a spacious galleried landing, three double bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which is en-suite to the master bedroom which also enjoys lovely far reaching views over fields.

The front is approached by a shared drive to a wide private graveled area providing parking for several cars with lawn and an ash tree to the side. Steps lead down to an attractively landscaped, split-level garden with lawn, flower and shrub borders, paved patio and a garden store. The enclosed Southerly facing rear garden is mainly graveled with a paved terrace and vine covered pergola making for an ideal al-fresco dining area, well stocked borders, a variety of ornamental trees and shrubs. A pedestrian gate leads to an area of hard standing with access to a service drive at the rear.

The property is situated in a lovely rural yet accessible location off an ancient drove surrounded by fields on the edge of the Nadder Valley village of Fovant, famous for the regimental badges cut into the chalk hillside of Fovant Down by soldiers during the First World War. The village itself has a shop/post office, doctors’ surgery, church dating from the 13th Century and a number of active clubs. The larger village of Tisbury is around five miles away and has good everyday shopping and local amenities as well as a station with mainline rail services to London (Waterloo). The small town of Wilton, the ancient capital of Wessex and well known for the stately home and landscaped gardens of Wilton House, is around 6.5 miles distant and also has a selection of shops and other facilities.

The North Dorset Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury is nearby and has a good range of shops, supermarkets, eateries, an up and coming secondary school, cottage hospital and is famous for the picturesque steeply cobbled street of Gold Hill. The medieval cathedral city of Salisbury has more comprehensive shopping, education, arts & leisure facilities and a district hospital. The area’s other principal towns including Bath, Blandford, Gillingham, Sherborne, Wincanton and Warminster are all accessible via the local road network as is the South Coast, West Country and motorway network. Many families are drawn to South Wiltshire by the excellent choice of state and private schools.

Set amidst the particularly attractive undulating countryside of the Nadder Valley, part of the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Fovant is an excellent base from which to explore the many miles of local footpaths and bridleways and there are a variety of rural pursuits available including walking, riding, cycling and fishing. Sailing can be found at Shearwater near Warminster, racing is at Salisbury, Bath and Wincanton and golf at Tollard Royal, Warminster and Salisbury. There are several excellent dining pubs in the vicinity as well as many places of interest such as the Longleat Estate, Old Wardour Castle, Stourhead Gardens, Fovant Badges and Stonehenge.
