Foxes, when they want privacy, go to earth.And that’s the option awaiting the new owners of a property called Little Foxes on Hayling Island.
Set alongside Ferry Road, it hides behind tall gates and hedges plus a long driveway in an idyllic setting opposite a nature reserve. What could be better?Well, there’s more to tempt potential new owners.
For a start, the property’s grounds have been expanded and now amount to half an acre encompassing a children’s play area and vegetable plot.And with its detached double garage block facing the driveway there could be opportunity to incorporate the existing integral garage with the main accommodation or use it as the basis for an annexe, subject to consents, believes Anne-Marie Green, of Fine and Country estate agents in Emsworth.
‘Little Foxes stands at the western edge of the main Hayling Island residential area and its setting has been fully exploited in the design of the house,’ adds Anne-Marie.‘In addition to the main ground floor living space, which takes full advantage of the garden itself, there’s a further upstairs lounge embraced on three sides by a balcony to make the most of the views that include Portsdown Hill, Langstone Harbour, the Isle of Wight and The Solent as it opens up into the English Channel on the far side of the Hayling Golf Club and Sinah site of special scientific interest immediately opposite the property’s gates.‘The house is perfectly set up for family life, with a large L-shaped kitchen / family room overlooking the driveway and side garden, while to the rear are two main living rooms, each with French windows to the garden.’
Set back off the inner hall is the fifth bedroom adjoining the cloakroom and with a door into the garage, perfect for connecting all this space into a living area.The second lounge dominates the western end of the first floor, with twin French doors either side of the chimney breast on to the balcony.This can also be accessed using doors from the third bedroom at the front and the master suite at the rear, which has a bedroom, en-suite bathroom with free-standing bath and shower cubicle, and a walk-in wardrobe.
The fourth bedroom is alongside the third while at mezzanine level there’s a family bathroom and the entrance to the second bedroom suite with a shower room.Anne-Marie adds: ‘The grounds are as appealing as the house itself and the good news for those who are bowled over by this delightful property is that there’s no onward chain, which could help speed the purchase.’
