Foxholes is a detached, characterful property
with planning permission granted to create a
superb family home with open-concept living,
taking full advantage of the striking panoramic
views. The house is believed to be a former part
of the neighbouring Aldworth estate built in the
1860s by Alfred Lord Tennyson. Making the most
of its elevated woodland position, with much of
the accommodation opening onto a large sun
deck and taking in the magnificent views of the
surrounding forest, which is set on the highest
point of the South Downs. The principal rooms
have been designed with large windows to
maximise the far reaching views.

The charming, detached stone built cottage with
vaulted and timbered roof can be adapted into
additional guest accommodation or home office.

The house is approached via a long private drive leading to a parking and turning area. A path leads down to a stone paved barbecue area surrounded by banks planted with a variety of ornamental trees and shrubs. The path continues to an elevated timber sun deck extending the full width of the house, with its vantage point for enjoying the magnificent views. There are steps up to a roof terrace and down into the gardens. The grounds slope away from the house into a valley, planted with a wide variety of shrubs and trees and where a spring-fed stream trickles down through a series of ponds to a small lake with an island. Beyond the garden the grounds comprise of mature woodland, which in spring enjoy a blanket of bluebells.
