Fosse Cottage Farm is a fascinating individual detached character property which offers a substantial level of accommodation approaching 3000 sq ft excluding the integral double garage and occupying a wonderful semi-rural location within a plot which encompasses formal gardens and grass paddocks extending to approximately 6.3 acres in total.
The property has seen a significant level of improvement over many years to create a superb versatile home offering three main reception rooms, utility and cloakroom, well proportioned farmhouse style kitchen and contemporary ground floor shower room. To the first floor there are four double bedrooms, the master being particularly generous and benefitting from a dual aspect as well as ensuite facilities. There is a separate family bathroom and both of these have been upgraded with contemporary fixtures and fittings.
The property is ideal for those looking to be tucked away in a more rural location situation but still situated within easy reach of the amenities of local towns and villages and occupies a fantastic plot which would be perfect for the equestrian purchaser extending to just in excess of 6.3 acres. There are three grass paddocks and formal gardens overlooking fields to the side and rear. In addition there is a generous gated driveway with integral double garage.
In addition to Fosse Cottage Farm, lying to the north-east side of the plot is a range of outbuildings which include a single storey barn previously utilised as a workshop and stables and approaches 2600 sq ft with an additional open barn at the rear extending to in excess of 1000 sq ft. Planning is in place for conversion of the larger building into a separate dwelling which offers a considerable level of potential, whether it be split and sold separately from Fosse Farm Cottage or alternatively for an extended family looking for additional accommodation on one site.
