Believed to date from 17th Century, Nadder House is a delightful part-thatched, stone house, in a pretty rural hamlet, offering spacious accommodation over two floors. It cleverly combines the convenience of modern living with a wealth of retained character features including stone mullioned widows and exposed beams. The original house has been extended during the Georgian and Victorian periods.

The front door, surrounded by roses and rosemary, opens into a sizeable entrance hall which also leads straight through a door to the rear terrace. To the left of the hall is the drawing room, triple aspect, with a stone fireplace, wood burning stove and French doors to the rear garden. A beautiful orangery, with stunning views, has a stone floor and doors to the terrace.

To the right of the hall is the large kitchen/dining room, which has mullioned windows overlooking the surrounding countryside. The kitchen/dining room provides a good range of bespoke units with a breakfast bar, oak work surfaces and a cast iron electric Everhot Stove. The dining area is next to a huge Inglenook fireplace and has space for a sizeable table. There is a larder and neighbouring fully fitted former kitchen, now used as a utility room. An inner hall leads through a boot room to the garden. The first floor is accessible from two staircases.

The first leads to a spacious triple aspect master bedroom with a built-in wardrobe. Across a small landing is its own large bathroom with freestanding bath and separate walk-in shower. There is a door to a single bedroom/study. The second staircase, climbs from the rear inner hall to a landing with three further double bedrooms and family bathroom with freestanding bath and walk-in shower.

Nadder House is situated in the sought-after Nadder Valley in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It lies on the outskirts of the picturesque and popular village of Tisbury, which boasts superb local facilities including a deli, fish mongers and wine merchant as well as a GP surgery and dentist. Tisbury has been voted one of the top ten villages in the country. The beautiful lake on the Fonthill Estate is a few miles away as well as some very good pubs at both Fonthill, Hindon and in nearby Donhead St Andrew. Old Wardour Castle is within walking distance across the valley.

The area is renowned for its excellent variety of field sports with numerous game shoots nearby. Communications in the area are excellent with the A303 providing a link to the M3, M25 and London or the West Country. Tisbury station offers a mainline railway service to London Waterloo taking under two hours.

The location benefits from a plethora of excellent local state and independent schools - Wardour Catholic Primary School, Sandroyd, St Mary's Shaftesbury, Port Regis, Gillingham School, Hanford, Bryanston and Clayesmore. Nadder House also lies within the catchment area for Salisbury's outstanding boys' and girls' Grammar schools.

Occupying a prominent, elevated position above the River Nadder and set within an acre of mature gardens, Nadder House is approached from a very quiet lane, through a pedestrian gate set into a low stone wall and over a gravelled side driveway with parking for multiple vehicles and a detached garage. Facing south-east, the front of the house is bordered with lavender beds and has glorious views across the Vale of Wardour.

The well-maintained rear garden features beautiful, flat-terraced lawns bordered with roses, peonies and mature trees. Numerous seating areas overlook the wonderful views. There is also a generous paved terrace from the conservatory along the length of the house, ideal for al fresco dining. At the top end of the garden, beyond a large beech hedge, there is an all-weather tennis court, an orchard and vegetable garden with greenhouse.

The thatch has been re-ridged and the remainder of the roof overhauled in March 2020.
