Acquired by the current owners in 1990, Foxley Lodge has been a much loved family home. Approached from the east by a long gravelled drive bordered by a paddock to the south with estate fencing. There is an area of woodland to the north containing some magnificent mature trees, under planted with spring bulbs. The drive finishes to the front and east of the house where there is a large gravelled turning and parking area. The drive also divides, leading to a further gravelled parking area to the north of the house where the outbuildings, including garaging and stabling, are situated. There is also a useful range of outhouses.
The gardens and grounds are a particularly attractive feature of Foxley Lodge and are arranged as follows; to the east of the house there is a paddock, bordered by estate fencing. In the southeast corner of the paddock, there is a pond and there are further trees including oak and weeping willow. Situated to the south of the house, there is an area of formal lawned garden, bordered by mature beech hedging with some topiary box and providing a delightful sheltered and enclosed area. Openings through the beech hedge lead to a further area of garden, under planted with spring bulbs, laid partly to lawn and containing the hard tennis court. Situated to the west of the house there is an orchard and a further area of lawned garden. To the northwest, there is a traditional kitchen garden, partly walled, the gravelled paths bordered with low clipped box hedging, a soft fruit cage, raspberry canes and vineyard. The fine south facing red brick wall is trained with espaliered fruit and productive fig. There is a pergola trained with various climbing shrubs including wisteria and rambling rose, and a door in the wall leads to a secret garden enclosed by fine old red brick walls and yew hedging. This has well stocked mixed shrub and herbaceous borders and provides a sheltered and secluded area of garden. There is a glasshouse with a mature vine.
The land in all extends to approximately 3.199 acres (stms).
