Charming period home with delightful gardens
Foxhounds is a delightful detached family home, formerly the Fox and Hounds public house, and brimming with character features. A spacious reception room leads on to a drawing room with beehive fireplace, beamed ceiling and French doors on to the garden. Further reception rooms include a cosy sitting room with open fireplace, elegant dining room and family room. The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped and has an adjoining utility room / boot room and stairs down to a cellar.
To the first floor, there are six bedrooms and three bathrooms. An interesting feature of the house is the generously proportioned bed sitting room to the first floor, being accessed via a spiral staircase descending to a study. This area of the property could be incorporated fully in to the existing accommodation or used as a separate self-contained annexe, as the current owners have. The layout lends itself to a very flexible configuration, and would be ideal for a teenager's space or for multi-generational living.
Externally, the gardens and grounds are a real feature of the property, with lawned areas, mature trees and a heated swimming pool. There are a number of very useful outbuildings, including two double garages, workshop and a fabulous home office. The driveway provides parking for several vehicles.

This is a great family home with versatile accommodation and I particularly like the useful outbuildings. It is well placed between the two fine villages of Loxwood and Wisborough Green.Sophie Richardson
