This 1800s traditional country house for sale offers an “elegant” lifestyle - plus a party barn and pool. 

Foxhill, in Elstead, dates back to the mid-19th century, having formerly been two cottages.

The cottages were combined to create the property as it exists today, spanning more than 4,500 square feet and with lands of approximately four acres. 

Entering the home there is an open porch leading to the hall, which has a boot room area and a guest shower room.

Outside, there are electric automatic gates opening to a sweeping resin-bound gravel driveway, leading to a detached building with two garages, a garden store and a workshop. 

Next to the garage, there is a sunny greenhouse, while a terrace with its own pizza oven sits beside the conservatory. 

The formal gardens, which were partially designed by horticulturist Gertrude Jekyll, include stretches of lawn, pathways and a water feature. 

The garden spans approximately four acres. (Savills)

There is also a vegetable garden, and the grounds have views over a woodland area. 

A particular feature of the gardens are the “excellent” party barn with a kitchen and a log burner, as well as double doors leading out to a terrace surrounding an outdoor pool with a detached changing facility and plant room.
