About this property

  • Foxhole Barn is an attached eighteenth century barn conversion, offering plenty of character and charm.

The living room is open to the kitchen/breakfast room, and there is a first floor shower room.

    On the ground floor are two en suite bedrooms, a store room, and a utility/boiler room which leads through to a spacious vaulted barn, which used to house a swimming pool and has been boarded. This room offers excellent potential for further conversion, subject to obtaining the necessary consents and permissions. Please refer to the floorplans for a full overview of the layout and extent of the property.

    The Holiday Cottages
    Foxhole Barn is attached by a lych-gate to a pair of one bedroom cottages, which have permission for use as holiday lets and offer a potential source of income. They have separate access from the lane and share a courtyard garden which could be used for parking.

    Outside
    There is off road parking next to the barn and beside the wooden front gates which open to a pretty little courtyard garden. The enclosed brick paved courtyard opens out beyond and to the side of the cottages, with a gate giving access to a small enclosed meadow.
    On the western side of the lane is the agricultural barn and parking area next to the paddock. The barn comprises two stables, tack store, office, feed store and workshop/garaging, and has power and an outside tap connected.
    The paddock is fully enclosed, has a field shelter and offers stile access to the lake, which is well-stocked for coarse fishing. The woodland lies to the north east, across the lane.
    About 35.8 acres in all.
