About this property

  • Fox House is a charming, detached period home, believed to date back to 1870. Constructed of local stone under slate roof, this is the first time this cottage has been offered to the market since 1963.

    Situated in an enviable position on the edge of the village, Fox House retains wonderful period features but is now in need of more comprehensive modernisation and improvement. The property offers considerable potential and there is plenty of opportunity to extend. With a great foundation, the cottage has capacity to be altered and improved to allow scope for more versatile living. (Subject to relevant planning permissions.) This could create a very exciting opportunity to stamp your own mark on this wonderful home.

    Inside, the ground floor comprises of a kitchen/ breakfast room, dining area and sitting room, all of which are delightfully light and a generous size. Off the kitchen, there is also useful outside storage space and an outside WC, with great potential to become a utility area. Upstairs provides more flexible living space, comprising three double bedrooms and a family bathroom, all in need of updating.

    Outside there is a delightful garden which is a generous size. Predominantly laid to lawn and lovely and private, there is an abundance of maturity to be seen with trees, hedges, bushes and flower beds, and a patio area perfect for entertaining in the summer. There is also an outside store to the rear of the garden with potential to perhaps be used as an external office/ workshop. To the front is a paved driveway with off road parking and a garage with power and lighting.

What an absolute treat this cottage is! I love how it is a blank canvas providing such exciting opportunities to really put your own stamp on the house.
