    About this property

    • Fox Hollies is handsome red brick detached barn conversion originally built in the 1700s situated in a peaceful rural setting on the village outskirts. The house stands towards the end of a no-through road and has views to the front over the Grade I-listed St Leonards church which dates back to the 13th century, and views to the rear over open countryside. The property has been beautifully maintained by the owners, who have made a number of updates in recent years including an upgraded kitchen and utility room, renovated bathrooms, a new boiler,a brand new garage, summer house, green house, creating a workshop/studio as well as a variety of other cosmetic updates . The result is a sympathetically modernised home which offers all the comforts of today's busy family life combined with character features including exposed beam and brick detailing, tiled floors and wooden doors.

      The spacious accommodation amounts to about 2621 sq ft over two floors and is generously proportioned throughout, with high ceilings and sizeable rooms. On the ground floor, an entrance hallway leads to a lovely sitting room with wood-burning stove and French windows opening to the garden, and a formal dining room which provides access to the country-inspired kitchen and breakfast room, a utility room and a cloakroom with WC. There is also a useful 'music room' which would make an excellent study. Upstairs the bedrooms are all a good size and include a principal bedroom with en suite bathroom, three further bedrooms and a family bath/shower room, plus a separate WC.

      The house is approached over an expansive gravel former farmyard, the driveway having plenty of space for a good number of vehicles, as well as access to the detached garage, studio/workshop (which has annexe potential) and its adjoining shed. There is also a summerhouse within the rear garden, which is south facing and beautifully landscaped to include a pond, lawn and patio, the latter partially covered to provide shade for outdoor dining. The garden backs onto open fields over which there are lovely far-reaching views.

    This lovely barn conversion is like a tardis, I especially like the kitchen/dining room with the cosy log burner and the views are just incredible whether you are looking across the parkland or back at the house and the church
