An attractive deceptively spacious 4 bedroom bungalow with garage, studio and gardens.

EPC Band C

Foxways is an individual property thought to date back to the 1850's. It was originally built as a cottage but was subsequently converted into a bungalow in the 1930's and has since been extended and improved. The bungalow has colour washed rendered elevations under tiled and fibre glass roofs and is deceptive from the outside so must be viewed to fully appreciate the spacious accommodation it provides. Due to the era in which it was constructed, unusually for a bungalow it feels characterful; enhanced by the thick walls and deep window sills. A welcoming entrance hall flows through to the principal rooms located at the rear of the bungalow which have a light and airy open plan feel and take advantage of lovely views over the garden. Both the sitting and kitchen/dining room have a real sense of bringing outside in with 8ft sliding doors from each room giving access to the garden. The kitchen is laid to attractive and practical solid oak flooring and is well appointed with a range of wall, base cupboards and drawers with integrated appliances including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and an electric range master. A central island provides additional storage and seating area and there is ample space for a large dining table. The sitting room can be incorporated into this wonderful space by opening wide double doors or closed off to create a cosy room from which to enjoy a recently fitted wood burning stove. Beyond the kitchen the utility/dog and boot room provides further storage and space for a washing machine and leads to the cloakroom and has a door to the side garden. The four bedrooms are positioned to the right hand side of the bungalow off an inner hallway, three of which are doubles and served by a large bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower. The master bedroom is generous and has been vastly improved with the addition of a luxurious wet room which is fully tiled and fitted with a Mira shower and quality sanitary ware. The property benefits from double glazing oil fired central heating and a substantial loft which could be converted, subject to the necessary planning consents.

Foxways lies close to the centre of the rural village of Holwell sought after for being easy driving distance of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne and market town of Dorchester. Both Sherborne and Dorchester are easily accessed and provide between them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with many walks to be had from the village itself while the region is well known for its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a main line station at Sherborne linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.

The front is approached by a paved pathway with off street parking to one side and with areas of lawn, trees and planting with gates to the rear garden, which is for the most part laid to lawn with planted borders, an abundance of lavender and two apples trees. To one side of the garden a gate leads to a block paved driveway with five bar gate (assessed from Holwell Drove) providing further parking and giving access to the garage and wood store. The garden is enclosed by a mixture of fencing and there is external entrance to both the garage and studio.
