ACCOMMODATION Mentioned in the Domesday book and believed to date back to 1066, Foxcote Mill is an interesting period property with a long history and stands in fantastic mature parkland style gardens in the region of 3/4 acre. In need of a fresh approach, this charming home is packed full of potential and will suit buyers looking to really make their mark.



The entrance is at the front and into a hallway with two separate staircases leading to the first floor. The sitting room is a good size measuring just short of 20ft from end to end and has windows to the front and the side. The windows have fitted shutters and there is an open fire with inglenook potential. The dining room has a window to the front as well as a coal fire and leads through to the 'Cider Room' which provides a useful utility space. The rear hall has a vaulted ceiling and a well pump which was used to bring water to the property many years ago. The kitchen is at the rear of the house and is used as a sitting room/breakfast room and has a useful larder cupboard. Finally, there is a bathroom on this floor.

The first floor can be accessed by two separate staircases. The first, a traditional Somerset stone stairwell, is a real feature of the property with exposed stone curved wall. This leads to a small landing with access to the master bedroom as well as a smaller l-shaped bedroom. The master is a fantastic size with two large windows to the side overlooking the gardens. There are two further bedrooms, one accessed from the second stairwell and with doors leading to the other as well as from the other into the l-shaped room. Please see the floorplan for the current layout.

The landing on the first floor has a further staircase leading to the second floor which is currently un-converted attic space. There are two large rooms, one leading to the next, with vaulted ceilings and windows to both sides. This space offers excellent potential subject to necessary building regulations and planning permission.  

OUTSIDE The property has a five bar gate to the side leading to a long driveway with space to park numerous vehicles. There is a detached single garage at the end of the driveway. The property also has an integral garage to the side forming part of the main building. There is an over garage store room believed to be a former hay loft. Outside the property, there is an attached greenhouse and a detached coal store.

The parkland style gardens are glorious and a huge selling point of the property. There are large lawned areas with a wide variety of mature shrubs and trees. The plot is believed to be circa 3/4 acre and enjoys peace, quiet and privacy. There is a well to the rear with the pump located within the properties rear hall.
