    About this property

    • Occupying an idyllic position, overlooking gently undulating fields, Old Foss Cottage is an especially pretty period house within about half an acre of grounds.

      In the last two years, our clients have comprehensively restored, renovated and remodelled the house to create a comfortable family home while retaining delightful character features throughout.

      Internally, the accommodation flows remarkably well, comprising wonderfully proportioned, light filled rooms with good ceiling heights.

      At the heart of the house is the double aspect kitchen/breakfast room, with a wood-burning ESSE range, brick flooring and French windows leading to the terrace.

      Designed and hand built locally by British Standard, the kitchen has Iroko work surfaces, timber cupboards, a butler style sink, and integrated appliances including a Bosch dishwasher, an AEG oven and induction hob.

      The kitchen flows through to a double height reception room presently used as a playroom and which could also make a superb dining room. Beyond the kitchen is a useful utility and laundry room.

      The spacious, double-aspect sitting and dining room has a charming inglenook fireplace with an inset wood-burning stove; this leads through to a cosy snug, which in turn leads to a pantry and boot room.

      The boot room has an external door and an adjoining shower room, perfect for returning after long walks in the country. Stairs in the boot room lead to a studio bedroom; subject to necessary consents there is scope for this area to be used as an annexe or holiday let.

      On the first floor are five bedrooms and the family shower room. The capacious principal bedroom is particularly impressive with an adjoining dressing room and en suite bathroom.

      Old Foss Cottage sits within grounds of about half of an acre of gardens. Immediately to the rear of the house, approached via French windows in the kitchen, is the terrace, ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining.

      Within the garden are areas of lawn, shrub borders and a large kitchen garden. A brick path winds across the garden leading through a designated wildlife area.

      There are a number of buildings and stores in the grounds. Old Foss Cottage has ample off-road parking for multiple cars.

    Old Foss Cottage is a delightful and very pretty period cottage. The accommodations flows exceptionally well with a wonderful kitchen (I love the ESSE stove), sitting room and capacious principal bedroom. The garden is particularly special, with an amazing kitchen garden.
