About this home
An utterly charming detached three to four bed character property within easy walking distance of the centre of Penkridge. The cottage is packed with unique and quirky character throughout with a wealth of original beams, cast iron fireplaces and a gas fired AGA at the heart of the home.
The cottage is accessed via a tarmac driveway to the side, set in a secluded hollow below road level, affording the private country feel, yet within walking distance to the many village amenities, shops, station, all close by. The front garden rises to a sandstone wall, thought to date from the time of the Anglo-Saxons.
The pretty cottage has a large cottage garden, extending to approximately 0.6 acres with an abundance of mature and well stocked borders, specimen trees, fish ponds front and rear and shaped lawns. There are lovely open views to the rear.
There are three reception rooms on the ground floor, two of which occupy a wing with an external door from the front, providing opportunity to create a self contained suite of rooms if desired. At the heart of the cottage is a charming breakfast kitchen with a range of bespoke, hand made wooden wall and base units, central island unit and gas fired AGA. There is a separate utility room and guest cloak room to the rear of the kitchen.
There are three double bedrooms on the first floor, all of which are served by a smartly appointed bathroom. The two rear bedrooms have particularly pleasant views over the garden.
The cottage is very tastefully decorated, in keeping with the quirky charm and unique character. It’s an opportunity to purchase something a little different from the norm, but to still benefit from the convenience of such a central location. It really is a hidden gem!
Penkridge has many shops and community amenities, primary and middle school and Wolgarston High School (Specialist Technical Excellence) in addition to the excellent commuting links.
Foxhole Cottage is situated in a sheltered hollow on the side of the A449 with lovely open views to the rear. Situated on the right hand side of the A449 as you head towards Stafford opposite Good Station Lane, the access road leads to the private driveway running down to Foxholes. Pedestrian access is also provided from the front elevation via a series of steps which lead across to the front elevation and is therefore accessed via a timber gate with slab steps leading down to the front elevation.
