Fox Hollow Barn is approached from the village lane down a private road. Gates at the end of the private road mark the entrance into the grounds and the drive sweeps from the entrance round to the parking area in front of the garage. A path leads to the front door which enters a welcoming entrance hall, right in the heart of the house.
On the right hand side of the hall is the sitting room which has timber floorboards, a lovely Blue Lias fireplace with inset wood burner and a very pretty view out to the garden. Sliding glass doors lead into the garden room which truly makes the most of the views having a triple aspect and French doors leading out.
The kitchen & dining room is a very social setting with an open plan layout, perfect for dinner parties and family gatherings. The kitchen is well fitted with vast amounts of worktop and storage space, an electric Rangecooker, plus integral fridge, freezer and dishwasher appliances. As with the rest of the living rooms, the kitchen and dining room also enjoys the stunning countryside views.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility area with a rear door and the study which could be used as a fourth bedroom if desired.
All three bedrooms are generous doubles and each have the benefit of an en-suite. The bedrooms also all have valued ceilings with exposed beams and rafters. The master bedroom also has plenty of built in wardrobe space.
As well as the house having very comfortable accommodation, there are also many modern conveniences including underfloor throughout, a central vacuum system and a hot air recovery system which make day to day living that little bit easier.
