Foxley house is believed to have been built circa 1840 and has all the character features one might expect of a house of this age. These features include generous ceiling heights, large sash and casement windows, open fireplaces, original panel doors, a period staircase and floors laid to plank or slate/flagstone floors. In recent years the property has undergone a rolling programme of renewal and refurbishment with of particular note a kitchen that is fitted out in contemporary style, a contemporary shower room and a luxurious bathroom.

The accommodation centres around the hallway on the ground floor and a particularly light, spacious and airy landing on the first floor from which views can be enjoyed over the town, deep into the Marshwood Vale. To the front of the house there is an attractive sitting room centred around a handsome marble fireplace behind which is the dining room also with a fireplace, equipped with a wood burning stove, to one end and double doors to one side looking onto the courtyard garden behind.

To the rear of the property there is a contemporary kitchen fitted with a comprehensive range of floor mounted cupboards with stainless steel clad doors and granite tops with space for the Falcon range cooker with extractor hood over and a fridge freezer with an integral dishwasher. To one end is a larder while to the other is a breakfasting area with a door out onto the courtyard garden. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large utility room with fitted units, cupboards and shelving, plumbed for washing machine and dryer, wet room tiled floor and separate WC.

On the first floor is a lovely landing from which three generously proportioned bedrooms and a bathroom are accessed. The bathroom has been beautifully fitted with a bath with marble surround and matching washstand with a marble top and sunken wash hand basin. On the second floor are two further double bedrooms one of which is currently used as a study served by a contemporary shower room that has been fitted in some style. The house is beautifully decorated throughout and has gas fired central heating.


Vehicular access is through the arch into a large courtyard that provides off road parking for a number of cars, with planning permission for a double oak framed garage and shed.

A short way along, a gate leads through to a wonderful secret garden that has a series of compartments, each with its own character and theme, all packed with an array of mature shrubs, trees and plants designed to give colour and interest throughout the seasons.

Fruit in the garden includes apples, pears, figs and grape-vines. Within the garden there is a greenhouse and a sitting area, while at the very end there is the remains of an old building that creates a compartment/room all of its own.
