About this property

  • Situated at the heart of the village, in the conservation area, Foxhurst is a charming and beautifully presented Grade II listed detached house reputed to date from the 1850s with extensive views over surrounding farmland, stretching all the way to Blackdown. At one point it was a pub known as The Fox Inn and in recent years it has been extended providing well proportioned, characterful accommodation. The ground floor is approached through an entrance porch leading to a sitting room with woodburning stove and exposed timbers. The fitted kitchen with Aga has been extended during our clients ownership with a versatile family room created, used as a breakfast room or living space with doors leading directly on to the lovely gardens. Off the kitchen is a dining room which can comfortably serve a large family with guests and beyond is a 22' drawing room - a fine room with a wide fireplace housing a woodburning stove and access on to the garden. A study and a downstairs shower room complete the ground floor accommodation and from the kitchen are steps down to a good sized, two-roomed cellar offering good storage.
    On the first floor are five bedrooms, three of which have built in wardrobes and there is a large family bathroom.
    The gardens are a particular feature of the property and extend to approximately an acre. Wide level lawns with areas of thriving wild flower meadow lead to a productive kitchen garden and established orchard. There is a pond and a number of mature trees offering shade and cover. There is a greenhouse and a brick-built store and a double garage with parking in front for three cars.

This is a lovely house full of character and great for families with its superb garden. It is well placed for the village and I love the fact it is a stones throw from the delightful village pub.
