Originally a Hall House, the house has a beautiful roofline, partly thatched, partly Cotswold stone tiled, and the house is full of period features such as exposed beams, wooden panelling and original fireplaces.
For those that love the countryside, the house has so much to offer with sunny west facing gardens, and with the land and outbuildings, you have the option of both equestrian and domestic use. The main house is a practical family home that benefits from five double bedrooms as well as a separate one bedroom cottage. The principle reception sitting room has a substantial fireplace built from stone which has been said to have been taken from Malmesbury Abbey. There is a cosy snug with a gas wood burner. Alongside the living accommodation there is an office and a large laundry and boot room, offering plenty of practical storage, which includes a kitchen pantry.
The farmhouse kitchen has glazed French doors opening out onto a beautifully planted rose garden and landscaped sun terrace. Being west facing the garden benefits from the sun all day long. There was planning permission in place that allowed for a large kitchen/dining extension and further bedrooms into this part of the garden, which could with the correct advice, be reinstated. There are four parterres with box hedging which are filled with a stunning collection of David Austin roses, anemones and alliums, bordered by stone balustrades which look out over the paddocks.
There is stabling for seven horses and large storage barns, together with paddocks, ideal for equestrian use. The paddocks are stock fenced and the land could easily be rented out for grazing should one wish.

Little Fosse Farm is positioned on the edge of Nettleton, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the south Cotswolds with Bath a short distance to the South. The property is situated in Beaufort Hunt country and The Badminton Estate is just a few miles away. The property lies between the villages of Nettleton and Castle Combe which is a hugely desirable, peaceful and idyllic spot. Walking and riding in the area are excellent with some of the best walks in the country right on your doorstep. The M4 motorway junctions 17 and 18 are 15 minutes’ drive away and mainline rail at Chippenham is a 20 minute drive (Paddington 1 hour 15 minutes). Both Nettleton and Castle Combe villages have thriving communities with churches, a post office/general store and excellent pubs. There are a number of schools, playgroups and doctor’s’ surgeries in nearby villages and both Bath and Bristol are within easy reach offering excellent schools, shops and leisure facilities.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
