Annington Leatler Close Fovant

‘Once in a lifetime’ family homes come onto market in Fovant

An exclusive collection of five former MOD properties in the desirable village of Fovant are being brought to the market by developer Annington on Friday (January 21).

Set in the Nadder Valley, which forms part of the Wiltshire Downs AONB, the refurbished three- and four-bedroom homes offer buyers a golden opportunity to purchase a rarely-available family home in the village, with the added bonus of a scenic outlook over the surrounding valley.

Situated on a private close with a sweeping entrance bay, Annington will offer just two four-bedroom detached home, alongside one three-bedroom detached and two three-bedroom semi-detached properties.

Having been lightly refurbished throughout by Annington, each former MOD property offers its buyers a blank canvas to make their mark on. In addition, each property boasts a private parking space and garage, a generous garden backing onto green paddocks, and desirable views.

Louise Saunders, sales and marketing manager at Annington, said: “Perhaps one of Wiltshire’s most popular locations, Fovant has long been in the eyes of buyers looking to move to this sought-after corner of Wiltshire.

“Very rarely do family homes such as these come on the market, and we don’t expect to see them hang around. With viewing by appointment only, buyers will need to enquire immediately to be in with a chance to purchase.”

The village itself is located towards the south west of Salisbury and comprises chocolate box houses, a convenience shop, post office, village pub, and a dedicated doctor’s surgery. Ideal for walkers and cyclists alike, homeowners can spend many days exploring the surrounding hills and valleys as part of the Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Fovant is situated halfway between Salisbury and Shaftesbury; a 25 minute drive in each direction. Rail services from nearby Tisbury reach Salisbury in just 15 minutes, and London Waterloo in just under two hours.

Chris Husson-Martin, associate director at selling agent Hamptons Salisbury, said: “Fovant is a highly sought after thriving village with an active community. We often see growing families and retirees watching this corner of the market closely for three and four-bedroom homes.

“Properties such as these tick all the boxes – well proportioned, fantastic views, and a real opportunity for buyers to maximise their capital.”

Prices at Fovant will start from £475,000 for a three-bedroom semi-detached home and £595,000 for a four-bedroom detached home.
