Nadder Valley, Wiltshire
An extended thatched cottage in the most idyllic rural hamlet setting, enjoying open country views with character features, versatile accommodation & a delightful garden.
Of period origins, but sympathetically extended in the late 20th Century, Little Cottage is a pretty detached country cottage, built of local Chilmark stone external elevations under a thatched roof. The property has undergone a number of alterations and improvements over the years, but still retains its special period charm and character, making this is a really charming home in a wonderfully rural but not remote setting. Ideal for use either as a primary home or a weekend escape, Little Cottage is not listed and has a good deal of potential for improvement and even extension, subject to the necessary consents.
The accommodation offers considerable versatility as to how it can be utilized. On the ground floor is a lovely triple aspect sitting room with wooden beams and an unusual open inglenook fireplace on iron columns, with a wood burner inside. The Hall/Study has the cloakroom next to it and has in the past been used as an occasional third bedroom, while, benefitting from views over fields to the rear is a large conservatory which could be used for dining, and a kitchen/breakfast room opening into a utility area.
Upstairs there is a lovely, good-sized landing/study area, two bedrooms that both enjoy enviable views over the surrounding countryside and a well-appointed shower room with a walk-in glass shower cubicle.
Little Cottage is located in a lovely rural setting off a country lane in the highly desirable hamlet of Lower Chicksgrove in the heart of the Nadder Valley. The area is renowned for its attractive, gently undulating countryside and forms part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Lower Chicksgrove is made up of a small collection of pretty houses and cottages and is home to The Compasses Inn, a traditional and popular country pub serving excellent food and having accommodation.
The nearby village of Fovant has a post office/shop, doctors surgery, active village hall and garage, while the larger village of Tisbury is just over two miles away and has very good day-to-day shopping facilities, eateries, a post office, primary school, doctors and dental surgeries, sports centre, garage and a station with direct rail services to London (Waterloo 1hr 50 mins) and the West Country.
Lower Chicksgrove is situated a couple of miles off the A30 between the hilltop Saxon town of Shaftesbury and medieval Cathedral city of Salisbury both of which offer a comprehensive range of amenities and facilities. The local road network gives ready access to the other main towns in the region including Bath, Blandford, Sherborne, Warminster and Wincanton as well as to the South Coast, while the A303 trunk road linking with the M3 makes London accessible for the motorist. For many families the wide choice of highly regarded local schools in both the state and private sectors is a big draw. The cottage is surrounded by the glorious rolling countryside of South Wiltshire, which is ideal for a variety of rural pursuits such as walking, riding, cycling and traditional field sports. There is golf at Tollard Royal and Salisbury, sailing at Shearwater whilst racing is at Salisbury, Wincanton and Bath.
