THE PROPERTY

Fox Hollow Barn is a superb example of how a farm building can be transformed into a stunning family home located in an idyllic rural location with fabulous views. The accommodation is arranged in a simple, classical layout with a sociable emphasis and a degree of flexibility. The three delightful reception rooms ensure that the perfect space is available for any occasion, from relaxing and enjoying the view at any time of year in the garden room to entertaining friends in the sitting room and casual meals in the kitchen/dining room. Domestically, the property offers every convenience required by the busy modern family. Ample storage is provided in the kitchen by a range of farmhouse-style units, amongst which a built-in dishwasher and a range cooker can be found. The kitchen is serviced by a utility room and a cloakroom.

Positioned slightly apart from the living accommodation, the three bedrooms are all of double proportions and, with their high ceilings, exposed roof timbers and windows overlooking the rear courtyard, enjoy a sense of space and light. Each is serviced by it's own bathroom; bedrooms 1 and 2 benefit from en suite facilities whilst bedroom 3 is positioned adjacent to the family shower room. With a door allowing bedroom 3 and the family bathroom to be separated from the rest of the accommodation, this arrangement works well for those living with extended family, grown up children or anyone expecting regular guests. Those working from home are well provided for with a sizeable study adjacent to the utility room. Alternatively, this room can be used as a fourth double bedroom.

OUTSIDE

Fox Hollow Barn benefits from beautifully kept gardens which offer a fantastic outdoor lifestyle to suit a variety of interests. Surrounded by some of the area's most picturesque countryside, those who enjoy relaxing outside are well catered for with a paved sun terrace, onto which a door leads from the garden room, and a manicured, level lawn with stunning borders. To the rear of the property is a Mediterranean style courtyard which, with it's sheltered, sunny aspect, is a perfect herb garden. Kitchen gardeners will be at home in the vegetable plot which is enclosed by mature hedges, providing shelter and seclusion to the numerous raised beds. Established cooking- and eating apple trees and soft fruit bushes provide yearly crops, and dedicated beds for asparagus, rhubarb and strawberries ensure that a perfect environment can be created for a variety of produce.

The property is approached along a gated gravel driveway which culminates in a large parking and turning area. From here, an electric up-and-over door leads into the double garage which, with it's storage loft, adjoining workshop and garden store, is ideally suited to keen hobbyists. There is also potential to convert this detached outbuilding to provide a self-contained annexe (STRC), should ancillary accommodation for extended family, grown up children or income generation be required. Additional gardening facilities are provided by the lean-to greenhouse abutting the garden room and a covered store to the rear of the garage.
