Ewemove are delighted to offer the stunning Fox House, set in the heart of the delightful and hugely popular village of Alton. This home will undoubtedly appeal to the aspiring and discerning buyer. Oozing character and charm with a host of period features and sensitive nods to the buildings history, Fox House is a home that is as unique as you are.

Fox House, the oldest part of which dates to the late 18th century, has a great mix of modern and contemporary finishes whilst still maintaining original features. The property started life as a public house with many features of this era still retained which gives the property life, soul, and an amazing history. Fox House can offer and fulfil a certain lifestyle most people strive for and pursue; it combines the two most important considerations when purchasing a property - appearance and location. Set on the outskirts of Alton with its local amenities including convenience stores, post office, health centre and country inns, the village and surrounding areas also offer an abundance of quiet walks, lakes, woodlands, and sandstone outcrops in the nearby Churnet Valley.

There have been add-ons over the years including a brand-new conservatory approx. 6 years ago, electric gated access and a double garage ensuring all your parking needs are catered for whilst also providing a private and secure environment. Other more recent improvements are brand new windows and doors throughout, locally crafted and hand made using hardwood. Solar panels have also been installed providing free/low cost electricity during the summer months whilst also paying back for excess power returned to the grid.

The ground floor space on offer is vast, varied, and versatile with four receptions rooms including lounge, snug, sitting room and conservatory with a kitchen, utility room and ground floor wc. With character and charm at every turn this is more so evident with the cellar which has been retained and is a functional and useable space. Upstairs there are 5 bedrooms. Once a four bed, such are the size of the bedrooms that one has been split into two to make this a five-bed property. Bed five is currently used as a study room but is equally functional as a fifth bedroom if required. Bedrooms one to four are all large double rooms with the master having an ensuite bathroom.

Externally the gardens are mostly hard landscaped and offer a high degree of privacy and security. The gardens and parking areas are screened with high sided brick walls and mature hedges to the boundary. There is also an electric security gate to the driveway which can easily accommodate 5-6 cars, supplemented with the double garage and car port.


8.4m x 3.5m - 27'7" x 11'6"
At over 8m in length the lounge is big enough to accommodate a large range of lounge furniture or maybe even combine it with a dining table. The features in here are the large, exposed timber beams in the ceiling and the fireplace which has been opened between two rooms and features a double-sided gas effect log burner.


4.4m x 4.1m - 14'5" x 13'5"
The 'snug' is a throwback to the history of the house, that being a small and cosy screened off room in the pub. The cosiness is accentuated by the other side of the double-sided fire from the lounge. Currently serving as an office space it could also be used as an additional sitting room or formal dining space.

Kitchen Area

4.2m x 4.4m - 13'9" x 14'5"
The kitchen and dining area have been switched over the years and the space demanded by today's modern kitchens make it a sensible switch. There is a good range of both base and wall units and supplemented with a central breakfast bar island with additional storage. There is space for a freestanding fridge freezer, set in aredundant fireplace, and included in the sale is a large range cooker with 6 ring hob and 4 ovens and integrated dishwasher.

Sitting/Dining Room

3.9m x 3.45m - 12'10" x 11'4"
Adjacent to the kitchen, and open plan with it, is the sitting room or dining area. Formally the kitchen it is now a space to either relax in or enjoy your family meals. There is access from here into the conservatory or double door access into the garden. All finished off with solid oak flooring.


7.45m x 4m - 24'5" x 13'1"
Another nod to the history of Fox House is the cellar. Still retaining the old steps and original features it is still a functional space. The cellar is beneath the footprint of the kitchen and dining area and it is access through the floor of the same.

Utility Room

2.9m x 2.15m - 9'6" x 7'1"
A utility room is always a convenient space in any home, especially a large family home and what better way to ensure the kids bring their washing down than introduce a laundry chute from the first floor directly into the utility. There is a good range of storage units in here along with space and plumbing for a washer and dryer. The boiler is also in this room.


5.75m x 4.5m - 18'10" x 14'9"
Approx. 5 years old with solid oak flooring the conservatory is yet another versatile space in the home. With direct access to the driveway and garden it is predominantly the main access point to the house (or which there are four). There is also an air conditioning unit here for added comfort during the summer months and a delightful presentation and preservation of an old existing feature which you'll have to arrange your viewing to see.

Master Bedroom with Ensuite

4.1m x 4.05m - 13'5" x 13'3"
A large double room at the front of the property with masses of room for the largest of beds and range of furniture. All complimented with the ensuite bathroom which has shower over 'P' shaped bath, vanity wash basin, toilet, and bidet. There is also some eaves storage for bed linen and towels.

Bedroom 2

4.3m x 4.05m - 14'1" x 13'3"
Whilst all the bedrooms are good sizes none come larger than bedroom two. Another large double room overlooking the front of the property.

Bedroom 3

3.6m x 2.8m - 11'10" x 9'2"
Double room overlooking the rear

Bedroom 4

3.5m x 2.7m - 11'6" x 8'10"
Double room formally combined with bedroom five.

Bedroom 5

3.6m x 2.1m - 11'10" x 6'11"
Currently serving as a study but equally functional as a single bedroom. This would even make a great office tucked away at the corner of the house.

Double Garage

Large double garage with 'up & over' door, power and lighting and side personnel door.Supplementary to the garage is the adjacent covered car port.

Council TaxA payment made to your local authority in order to pay for local services like schools, libraries, and refuse collection. The amount you pay depends on the value of the property.Read more about council tax in our glossary page.
