About this property

  • Set in the heart of the village, 6 Fox Lane is a stunning house where the current owner has cleverly and carefully combined it's period charm with modern living. The house has been comprehensively refurbished and as a result, now offers modern finishes with a wealth of period features throughout.

    Upon entering the house, the sitting room is a generous size and has a welcoming and warm feel, with a brick fire place and log burner, exposed beams and wooden panelling on the walls. The kitchen continues the relaxed feel with a charming window seat, moveable kitchen island, six ring Rangemaster, Butlers sink, and plenty of storage units and work space. There is also access to the rear garden with space for coats and boots too. The dining room is delightfully light with a high ceiling, built in shelving and ample room for a dining table. There is also bi-folding doors leading out to the garden, making it a wonderful space for summer entertaining. There is a useful downstairs cloakroom. The basement level has utilised an amazing space, creating two extra rooms with further potential for a home office, gym or even cinema room.

    Upstairs on the first floor is a modern guest bedroom. A generous size with double aspect, wooden wall panelling, window seat and wooden flooring throughout. The spacious landing leads to a separate stylish bathroom with free standing bath, generous shower, ‘his and hers' vanity sinks, and two windows allowing masses of light to flood through. On the second floor is the principal suite. Completely renovated and reconfigured, attention to detail and installation can be seen throughout with quality fixtures and fittings. A sizeable bedroom with lots of light being brought in through Velux windows and a contemporary en suite to match.

    Outside is a charming, low maintenance garden, partly laid to astro turf lawn. A stone wall boundary keeps the garden quiet and gives great privacy. There is also a paved area perfect for alfresco dining. Gravelled off road parking can be found at the front of the property, with gates leading to the rear.

The layout of this cottage is quite exceptional. I love how there is so much versatile space over four floors, and it is such a charming mix of both period and contemporary.
