About this property

  • Fox Farm presents a rare and wonderful opportunity to secure a charming home in this delightful countryside setting, with wonderful far reaching views with a generous, but still manageable landholding and a collection of very useful outbuildings.

    The attractive, detached, unlisted farmhouse is light and spacious and well-presented throughout with charm and character in abundance; the property which has undergone some updating and refurbishment in the last few years still offers considerable scope for further improvement and updating subject to any necessary consents, allowing a new owner to put their stamp on the house as they wish.

    The farmhouse provides a flexible ground floor layout; the sizeable and welcoming sitting room with feature fireplace is open to the conservatory which has direct access onto the terrace and is a wonderful spot from which to take in the outlook over the gardens and neighbouring countryside. The dining room also has direct access through French doors onto the terrace.

    The kitchen/breakfast room also has direct access to the outside. There is a utility room, ground floor cloakroom and a study completing the accommodation.

    On the first floor the principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom and dressing room; there are two further double bedrooms and a separate bathroom.

    Outside: Fox Farm enjoys a high degree of privacy, comfortably set back from Sheepstreet Lane with a gated approach and long private drive. The property much benefits from a beautifully kept and well-established formal garden with glorious views, a large pond, surrounded by many impressive specimen plants.

    Of particular note Fox Farm offers a collection of very useful outbuildings. There is a large cart store and two stables, neatly placed next to the large paddock of some 5 acres. There is a detached workshop, with separate machine, wood and tool stores.

    The garage has space for two cars and adjoining store area, there is also a sizeable office to the rear, with a separate entrance, which has a wc and offers much scope for further development into a home office or possible ancillary accommodation subject to any necessary permissions.

As the gates opened and I made my way down the drive I just knew Fox Farm would be special. The setting is truly idyllic and I think the property is a perfect sum of parts. Whoever finds themselves waking up here as the new homeowner, will no doubt feel very lucky indeed.
