Foxhole Cottage is situated in a delightful setting on the eastern outskirts of the attractive village of Framsden, in an undulating area of countryside. The village has a church and neighbours the village of Helmingham which has a children's nursery and primary school. The nearby village of Cretingham has an excellent pub and golf course. The larger village of Debenham, 4 miles to the north, provides a good range of day to day amenities including a sports centre, doctors surgery, shop/post office and further educational establishments. The highly regarded town of Framlingham is 7 miles away and offers a wide range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities. The town has received national recognition as one of the best market towns in the country. There are several schools in the town including Framlingham College, Thomas Mills High School and Sir Robert Hitcham Primary School. Recreational facilities in the area include golf courses at Woodbridge, Aldeburgh and Cretingham and the Suffolk Heritage Coast provides sailing and fishing opportunities on the Alde, Deben and Orwell estuaries.
Foxhole Cottage is a wonderfully presented house with the original cottage dating back to the 19th century, substantially extended in 2005 and subsequently thoroughly renovated and remodelled over the last three years creating a remarkably special home finished with great style & flair. There are two reception rooms off the hall both with glazed doors out to the gardens and a wood burner in both the drawing room and sitting room. The open plan kitchen/breakfast room has a wall of glass panels and doors which lead out to the south facing terrace. There is a further wood burner in the breakfast area. In the original house is the dining room with an open fireplace and old bread oven, side hall to a shower room and secondary staircase which leads to two bedrooms – ideal for guest accommodation. The master bedroom has triple aspect windows with superb views and an en suite bathroom. Beyond the landing is a play room/study area which continues through to a further bedroom and en suite bathroom.
Located to the north of the house is an impressive L shaped modern barn with electricity and water connected. The barn has a double garage area with store to one side and opens through to a large workshop/machinery store and a further garage to the far end with further doors opening out to the rear gardens.
