You will fall in love with this picture-perfect cottage the moment you walk through its white picket gateway, past its magnificent century-old oak tree and along the gravel path. A flawless nod to original Southern Highlands weatherboard architecture, ‘Little Foxes’ is a rare find, only minutes from town and the Cherry Tree Walk, has been sympathetically updated and extended to accommodate perfectly all the comforts, whims and tastes of the twenty-first century.

Cosy and romantic, with both front and rear staircases to the upper floor, and striking gloss-black entry doors from the foyer, the home has many delightful hallmarks of the era: window-seats, dormer windows, and manageable, well-tended rose and cottage gardens.

A Norwegian-made Jotul gas log fire warms the formal lounge or music room, with a secluded, sunny day room accessed through French doors to the side, which then then opens to the combined family lounge, dining and kitchen.

With a cosy, slow-combustion Jotul fire, but also split-system air conditioning, this spacious, inviting area has a sky-lit, high-pitched ceiling and stone hearth. A north-facing timber verandah flows out from the family lounge and down to a pretty cottage-garden terrace.

The main bedroom downstairs has a new ensuite, entered from a closed-cupboard dressing room, as well as a paved, north-facing terrace.

At the front of the home, the generous-sized downstairs study has a beautiful sunny and flower-filled outlook, while the upstairs rooms, accessed from both front and rear staircases, and with built-in storage, window seats and views to Oxley Hill, can be utilised as a combination of bedrooms, study, nursery, play room and reading nook, with their own full bathroom.
