Constructed in 1967, for the current owner, 'Foxcotte' has been lovingly maintained although now lends itself to an extension and improvement. Externally, the gardens are a delight with the property set back from the lane down a lengthy gravelled driveway on a plot of 0.44 of an acre which provides a great deal of privacy. The house has an east/west orientation and along with its large windows makes for a light and airy feel.
