    About this property

    • Foxhole Farm is a spacious and private rural smallholding, ring-fenced by approximately 13 acres of its own land and enjoying far-reaching views in all directions. The farmhouse dates from the early 1970's and has been constructed of Blue Lias stone, with quoins and double glazed mullion windows under a clay tiled roof.

      The house has been extensively modernised in recent years, now providing spacious and adaptable accommodation over three floors, totalling over 4,600 sqft. In addition to the accommodation in the main house there is a generous selection of outbuildings, offering the potential to create secondary accommodation if required, subject to the necessary consents.

      The gardens and grounds have been immaculately kept and include terraces, lawns, an orchard, paddocks and an all weather tennis court. A tree lined driveway leads to an imposing turning circle in front of the house and detached garage. A detached building houses an indoor swimming pool, with hot tub, sauna and changing rooms with shower and WC.

      A Gothic style front door opens to an entrance porch, leading into a reception hall with cloakroom and staircase leading to the first floor landing. There are four reception rooms on the ground floor, including a sitting room with gas fireplace, a dining room, snug, and conservatory. There is a modern fitted kitchen with breakfast room, a utility room and steps leading down to a pantry/cellar/wine store.

      On the first floor, the master bedroom suite has a range of fitted wardrobes and a substantial en suite bathroom with bath and separate shower. There are four further double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes, two of which are en suite and a family bathroom together with a generous airing cupboard on this floor. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a study and a 43' x 10' games room, with eaves storage.

      The indoor heated swimming pool is set within a detached building, which has a large apex window looking out to the garden. There is also a sauna and changing room with shower and cloakroom. To the east of the pool building there is a substantial modern barn, with full height access door and space for machinery storage and workshops.

      The house and buildings sit within the centre of the grounds, surrounded by landscaped gardens which offer mature borders, lawns, terraces and an outdoor entertaining area, an orchard and four well-fenced paddocks. The house is approached via a long sweeping driveway, which leads to a generous parking area and turning circle in front of the house and garage. To the west of the house and buildings, there is an immaculate all-weather tennis court. In total, the grounds extend to approximately 13 acres and are currently looked after by the neighbouring farmer by way of an informal agreement with the vendor. Please note, the land will be sold with vacant possession.
