Formerly the Horse & Jockey public house, named for the nearby horse race, which ran behind the house where the golf course is now situated, Foxwood Lodge is a delightful cottage displaying a pleasing symmetry typical of its era.
Originally a much smaller property, the house has been extended over the last 100 or so years to provide a good balance of accommodation.
On the ground floor there are three separate reception rooms, two at the front and the third, a dining hall, situated at the rear, next to the kitchen, providing a convenient place to dine. With French doors opening onto a terrace, this could make a lovely spot for entertaining friends and family making the most of the summer evening breezes. The kitchen is fitted with simple units in a practical configuration and has access to the garden via a stable style doorway.
Underneath the sitting room and hallway, there is the original cellar from when the property was a public house and, with the necessary consents, could lend itself to a variety of uses.
Upstairs, there are 4 bedrooms, sharing a family bathroom which has been recently fitted and an adjacent shower room. The two largest rooms have fitted cupboards and have views over the grounds of Childwickbury. The bedroom at the rear of the house is a good size and is an ideal spot to watch the golfers!
With paddocks extending to over 4 acres and formal gardens adjacent to the house, the house occupies a sizeable plot of land. Arranged as two separate paddocks, there is ample grazing and stabling.
There is a small garden directly behind the house with a lawned area and terrace. This leads through to a large garden which is fenced and bordered by hedges and is partly shaded by a beautiful spreading oak tree. With views over Harpenden Common Golf Course, this is a super spot to spend time with a place to sit in the sun at any time of the day.
There is a large stable block, manufactured by Broadfield Stables, which blends into the surroundings with its silvered red cedar shingled roof.
Set behind gates to the side of the property, is an area for parking providing space for at least 4 vehicles. A driveway runs from here to the stable block, providing access for horseboxes and agricultural equipment.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
