If you are looking for a new home in the Shotley peninsula area, then look no further than our Property Of The Week features, which showcases the most sought after homes in the area on the Shotley peninsula Nub News property pages, now being sponsored by estate agents Chapman Sickels.

Foxwood is a spacious detached chalet within the rural hamlet of Lower Raydon in the heart of glorious Suffolk countryside, on the market with Chapman Stickels for £950k

The property has been significantly extended and upgraded over the years to create a wonderful, versatile home.

The room layout is very adaptable to allow for single storey living or a suite for a dependant relative.

Set well back from a quiet lane, Foxwood cannot be truly appreciated until inside which is presented with great style.

The large reception hall/sunroom opens onto a dining hall and in turn to the well- proportioned sitting room with a feature fireplace with inset wood burner and sliding glazed doors to the rear terrace.

The well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with extensive granite worksurfaces, 'Rayburn' range cooker, 'Neff' oven, microwave and four ring induction hob, dishwasher and a built-in dresser flanked by pantry cupboards.

Beyond the kitchen/breakfast room there is a fine garden room with doors out to the terrace.

On the ground floor there are up to three bedrooms and a shower room, whilst on the first floor there is an ensuite guest bedroom, and the principal bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and extensive built-in wardrobes.

Delightful gardens

Foxwood is set well back from the lane with a double bay cart lodge and ample parking for numerous cars. The rear garden is an absolute delight; an earlier owner created an arboretum of around 70 species of trees and shrubs including acacia, river birch, maple, cherry, ash, and oak – providing wonderful seclusion. A brick paved terrace adjoins the rear of Foxwood with sweeping lawns beyond and well stocked herbaceous borders. In one corner there is a productive vegetable garden, fruit cage, greenhouse, polytunnel and machine shed whilst towards the back boundary lies a sunken garden.
