Fox Cottage is believed to date from the late 18th Century and is Listed Grade II. There are elevations of brick in English bond, with occasional grey headers, under a tiled roof. Whilst the house is habitable, some buyers may consider that some updating is now required.

Steps lead to the ribbed front door, which opens to the dining room with a large inglenook fireplace, bay window and tiled floor. A door leads to the kitchen, which is at the rear. The principal reception room is nearly 22 feet in length and has a fireplace, parquet floor and glazed door to the garden.

The first floor has three bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC. The two front bedrooms enjoy views over the recreation ground and to the Downs beyond. Accessed by individual staircases from these are two attic rooms, both with windows.

Fox Cottage is situated within Leeds village, which has a primary school, a public house and the historical attraction of Leeds Castle. Also, nearby are the landscape gardens that Capability Brown created in the early 1770s (around the same time Fox Cottage is believed to have been built) for the owner of Leeds Abbey.

Maidstone provides rail links to London Victoria, whilst Ebbsfleet International offers the High Speed service to London St Pancras in approximately 18 minutes.

The garden is at the rear with a brick courtyard outside the back door; there is a garden shed nearby. A meandering, paved path leads down the garden, with lawn and mature trees and shrubs each side. The entire rear garden is about 75 metres in length.
