A captivating Grade II Listed detached family house, in an enviable village location

Dating back to 1606, Foliejon Cottage is a quintessential Grade II listed period house offering the rare opportunity for those seeking a traditional property bursting with character. In addition to the main house, there is a separate home office with its own fireplace that would suit those wishing to work from home and a large detached summerhouse also with a fireplace, that presents an ideal opportunity for renovation/development (subject to planning permission). The delightful gardens provide an ideal setting for the property and extreme care and attention to detail is evident throughout the house, creating a most appealing and fascinating family home.

The house is arranged to provide adaptable accommodation arranged over two levels and boasts many period and interesting features including exposed beams, leaded light windows, open fireplaces, carved doors and joinery, and the original and still working butler/servants bell display box. The ground floor is entered via a welcoming reception hall that opens into a remarkable drawing room with an open fireplace, an alcove with carved wooden panelling and shelving, and a glazed door opening into a loggia. This covered area provides the perfect space for dining and entertaining, being sheltered on three sides, and incorporating a glazed wall. The dining room is equally as impressive, featuring a stone fireplace with linen-fold wood panelling above, and is ideal for the more formal occasions.

The adjoining kitchen/breakfast room has been updated to suit a modern lifestyle and boasts a marble floor with under-floor heating and unusually, a superb Norcool walk-in refrigerator. The spacious kitchen has been beautifully fitted with a comprehensive range of units, granite worksurfaces, a double Butler sink unit, a Lacanche range cooker and integrated appliances; there is ample space for a breakfast table, perfect for more informal dining. A scullery area, fitted to echo the style of the kitchen, including a double butler sink, features an integral Miele coffee machine, a Siemens dishwasher and a warming drawer. A fitted utility room, also with marble flooring, incorporates a useful icemaker and space for appliances. The ground floor further comprises a cosy dual aspect snug with a fireplace, and a cloakroom.

Situated on the first floor is the striking principal bedroom with a beamed vaulted ceiling, feature fireplace, built-in wardrobe cupboard with a carved oak door, and an en suite bathroom. The floor is host to six further well-proportioned bedrooms, two family bathrooms and a useful separate WC.

N.B. Some contents of the house are available for purchase by separate negotiation.
