DESCRIPTION

Nettleton Mill House, set in a secluded valley, was built in 1774 of local stone elevations, with a mature wisteria climbing up the southern front façade. It was originally part of the Castle Combe Estate, neighbouring the Park which is now the renowned Manor House Hotel and Golf Course.

Internally, the property has well-presented accommodation across two floors and there is scope to extend the property, should one wish. It has a superb sitting room with an open fireplace with steps up to a formal dining room that neighbours the fitted kitchen. Off the reception hall is a study and across the hall an open through double room that leads straight out onto a paved terrace in the garden. The views from here are delightful, having the gardens in the foreground and beyond to the river.

Upstairs are four bedrooms and a large family bathroom with a separate shower cubicle and the main bedroom has an en suite bathroom.

The grounds are a delight, the formal lawn gardens flowing around the house and leading down to the river frontage on the Bybrook River, renowned for its trout fishing. The gardens lead up to a vegetable garden behind the house, beyond which is a summer house to admire the stunning views.

SITUATION

Nettleton Mill House is set within the Castle Combe Conservation Area; a peaceful and picturesque Cotswold valley located at the end of a “no-through” road. The property lies between the villages of Nettleton and Castle Combe. This area is noted for its outstanding beauty and desirability. Walking and riding in the area are excellent. The M4 motorway junctions 17 and 18 are 15 minutes’ drive away and mainline rail at Chippenham is a 20 minute drive (Paddington from 1hour 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 doctors surgeries in nearby villages and both Bath and Bristol are within easy reach offering excellent schools, shops and leisure facilities. Some of the best walks in the country are right on the doorstep.
